3.0 out of 5 stars You get what you pay for 2 Aug 2013
By Scott

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Works for iMac HDD to SSD Swap 9 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works but no good for drive bays. 15 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value and good design. 15 Mar 2012
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple and complete 14 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars quite cool 24 Dec 2011
By Jack
Verified Purchase
this was only going to get 3 stars as the screw holes can be a wee bit fiddly!
but i was very impressed when i noticed that this isn't just a piece of plastic that converts a 2.5 into a 3.5... it is actually a piece of plastic that converts two 2.5 into a single 3,5.
great little slot saver and is great for ssd... for when you realized that really expensive 60GB wasn't quite enough and you need to buy that 30 gb more! well you can do so without emptying an extra 3.5 slot!
yay

Does what it should. Not used a 'plastic' caddy before. Usefully you can use just about any screws you may have used previously instead of the supplied screws. Read more
