Good:

Arrived on time.
Comes with 12 screws: 4 for attaching the adapter to the PC case, and 8 for TWO hard drives to attach to the adapter.
Very simple and easy to install into computer case.
Sits tightly - no movement of hard drive.

Bad:

Plastic is weak/flimsy.
On the corner, where one of the screws would go in to attach the top hard drive, this was broken off upon arrival. Top hard drive is still attachable with 3 screws. Didn't bother sending it back at it only cost about £2.
No screw threads in the holes. It's easy to screw in the screws, but BE CAREFUL to not over tighten them, as this very easily destroys the thread in the weak plastic.
Packaging was not very good. Came in one of those plastic zip bags, which was then just inside a grey plastic postal bag. No padding or anything, hence the broken corner.

Conclusion:
Despite all the bad points, I still recommend it to others if they are looking for a CHEAP adapter/bracket that allows 2.5" HDDs or SSDs to fit into a 3.5" slot. Just be careful not to destroy the screw threads you make in the plastic, and don't throw it around!

I bought an OCZ solid state drive to accelerate the hard disk in my desktop PC. The OCZ came without any mounting bracket and after looking at the options available I found this. It allowed me to slot the 2.5" OCZ into one of the standard 3.5" drive bays in my desktop case in a couple of minutes. This bracket accepts two 2.5" drives so I have now also mounted a spare 2.5" hard disc drive for some extra storage space. Very easy to fit, good value and a good neat and tidy result.

This does the job but the drive is mounted centrally and is therefore no good for computers that have drive bays, such as the DELL Alienware Aurora range. For these you will need the Icy Dock. Icy Dock MB882SP-1S-2B 2.5 inch to 3.5 inch SATA HDD/SSD Converter - BlackO.K. if you want to fit a SATA lead to it rather than plug it in.

Installed this in my 27" iMac when I removed the existing 3.5 and had to install a 2.5 SSD. Worked like a dream.

FYI - The plastic case touched the metal case when screwed in but this wasn't a problem overall.

My Samsung 840 fits nicely in the SSD slots (there are two).
The material is plastic, but sturdy. Metal is unnecessary as the SSDs produce little heat.
The cradle comes with enough screws to attach two SSDs and also to attach the cradle to your case.

The cradle is quite high though, meaning some HDD slot dividers may need to be bent out of the way.

I bought a Kingston SSD while a promotion was running, but hadn't really given any thought to the fittings needed for the new drive. A quick search on Amazon returned information for this great value conversion cradle. Yes, it's made of plastic, but it seems pretty robust, and has enough fixing holes to suit a wide variety of different cases and drive bays. As another review mentions, it also comes with a selection of fixing screws. As this cradle holds 2 SSDs securely it means I can add a second SSD in the future should I need to. I fitted this cradle into a spare hard drive slot (some of the holes lined up nicely with my drive bays fittings), but it would happily have sat in a 3.5" bay too.

It lost a star because the pack was missing a fixing screw, and the holes that I ended up using needed a little more ecouragement to get the fixing screws in than I'd have expected. It's doing a sterling job now though and arrived in a couple of days (Amazon fullfilment really is excellent!).
