Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Adapter

Adapter:
"The problem came when trying to mount the adapter in the 3.5 tray which used bottom mounting screws."
_
"Because of this, it can't be used in quite a few cases that support drive mounts that give better or quieter support than just screwing in from the sides (many Corsair cases for instance).As others have also pointed out, there is no support for 2.5 drives that only have screw holes in the bottom (quite a few SSDs fall into this category).It's my own fault for not checking more thoroughly, and, if you do your research and ensure that the adapter will work in your environment, it's a decent enough piece of kit."
_
"The 2.5 drive mounts so far back in the adapter that a right angle SATA cable won't clear the adapter."
_
"There are two primary problems I have found with this adapter:1."
_
"I felt frustrated with this adapter and that's rare."
_
"Great little adapter that I would buy again in a second."
_
"You can't go wrong with these adapters, especially for the price."
_
"The strong metal adapter worked and fit great into my Full tower ATX case."
_
"I love using this adapter to mount SSDs in desktop machines."
_
"Well, the pins are slightly larger than the holes in the adapter - so I had to drill them out."

Case

Case:
"It fits in my case with no hassle and is designed in such a way that it doesn't interfere with the airflow in my Tower."
_
"I am currently using 27 of those right-angle SATA III connectors right now, with no problems except that I just got a Samsung 840 Pro Series 256gb & also bought this adaptor to alleviate the problem that both of my cases have, no SSD 2.5 Drive bays."
_
"It mounted my fast as hell SSD in my case with minimal problems."
_
"Here are the problems:It's not compatible with the newer toolless cases that use posts rather than screws to secure the hard drive."
_
"Not sure if thats because of the SSD, or the tray, or even the case, but it was quite annoying since I had to leave one side off the tray in order to fit in it my Thermaltake case."
_
"Fit my 8 year old Thermaltake case perfectly."
_
"It did however fit my other Dell Cases great, so I did not mark down much"
_
"Excellent solution to assembly a couple SSD 240 GB SATA in my Thermaltake case with just one slot free, arrive recommended tem, tank you"

_

_
"Yet another complained about the finish."
_
"Solid hunk of metal, all edges rounded so no trauma during installation, quality paint finish, very nice black chrome screws included, and all the holes lined up."

Power

Power:
"Two SSD drives with fit in this but I hard to get bulky power cable connected to two SSD drives so close to each other."
_
"This is more of a power supply problem, but something to keep in mind if using 2 drives with this kit; not even a consideration with only one drive."
_
"On my Thermaltake Armour they is not enough room at the top next to the power switch cables,as well as the power led wires HDD cable lights and of course the USB 1394a, Azalia speaker cables."
_
"The power supplies are well thought out and are rock solid after a decade plus experience."

Screw

Screw:
"though the screws are really really hard to get in but the bracket is solid and works fantastic"
_
"I had to look all over to find the right screws and they're not easy to find...After about two hours of searching around my area, I was able to find a Best Buy Geek Squad person who helped me and gave me the right screws."
_
"Comes with more screws than you'll probably need, and if it isn't clear from the pictures this tray can actually fit two 2.5 drives."
_
"I had a weird issue with black screws and a black drive with a black mounting kit."
_
"Really good product, but you have to plan assembly as some screws are not easily reachable during assembly."

"Solid hunk of metal, all edges rounded so no trauma during installation, quality paint finish, very nice black chrome screws included, and all the holes lined up."
_
"This fit my Samsung drive GREAT for side screw mounts, the bottom screw holes did not line up with the drive."
