This converter allows a 2.5" laptop drive to mimic a 3.5" dive. It works like a caddy with the 2.5" drive fitted directly to a large heat-sink inside the converter. Once the drive is fitted into the converter it can be mounted anywhere that takes a 3.5" drive. The converter's SATA and power connects are in the exact same place they would be on a regular 3.5" drive. This allows it to be fitted to a tray for use with a rack system, as the rear connectors will match the backplane. To my mind this is the real reason for buying this converter over cheaper 2.5" to 3.5" mounting system.

Note: This converter uses 'M3' threaded screws throughout: both internally (to mount the hard drive inside the converter) and externally (to mount the converter in the PC case). 3.5" drives *do not* use M3 screws - they use '6-32' threaded screws for mounting in a PC case. This mismatch means the converter is not a perfect mimic of 3.5" drive.

I found this out when trying to fit the converter into an Icy Dock 3 bay rack. The screws supplied with the rack for mounting a 3.5" drive into a tray are the flat (countersunk) 6-32 threaded type and where not suitable for mounting the converter. Although I have plenty of M3 screws that came with my PC case for mounting Optical drives (Blu Ray/ DVD/ CD), they were not countersunk (they were the usual button and flanged head type). The screws have to be counter sunk to fit flush with the tray's rails: otherwise they would block the sliding of the tray into the rack. The M3 screws supplied with the converter are countersunk, and would have done the job, but there are only 5 of them: enough to fit the 2.5" drive into the converter (and one spare).

I bought a 2.5" SSD (HyperX from Kingston) to fit into one of the drive slots on my HP Proliant N54L Microserver. Unfortunately, the 3.5" carrier that is supplied with the drive didn't allow the SATA connector to align properly (the drives fit into carriers in the Microserver).

This convertor transforms the 2.5" to the very same form/factor as an actual 3.5" HDD. The enclosure has a built in external SATA connector. Hint: Use the mounting screws that come with the Icybox - the HP ones are too big.

Great product, fairly priced.

Well a few things. Good value for money but the Mac screws do not thread into the top of this unit. You need to use the screws that come with the unit but you need to strip the rubber washers from the mac screws and put them on otherwise the spacing is all off and you will not be able to align the unit into the slot on the motherboard at all. Other than that its cheap and works!

I found this Converter Box to fit an 2.5 inch Samsung 840 SSD inside, a doddle :D

all the screws were there, despite what some other reviewer mentioned. "NO issues!"

I then slotted the ICY BOX "Casing" into the tool-less rack on my CoolerMaster ATCS 840 Tower;

(it was all effortless work) transforming a 2.5 inch Sized SSD to a "Nice NEW Home" sized 3.5 inch.!

I find this "absolutely Fab value for money"; The ICY BOX Adapter Casing "Gizmo" for all those

who want a hassle free "SSD to fit inside their PC with Eaze". (It has all the Sata III & power

supply connectors) to fit perfectly. 'ICY-BOX' Have thought off everything, nothing was left out.

It can all be installed realistically in well under 10 min's. its really simple child's play, TBH.

Hope my 20 cents has been of some use. Thank-you for reading. Cheers - David :D

PS. Excellent Value for money indeed!, Really decent quality, Recommended for sure.!
*Please consider adding* to your basket, if you have a precious SSD, you wish to install into your PC.

In short, this product worked absolutely fine with the drive bays on an Alienware Aurora R4 mounting a 2.5in Crucial C300 64GB SSD - the bay seemed to accept the enclosure and clicked in without issue.

The AW Aurora R4 has drivebays which require a 3.5in drive to slide in and when it reaches the back it clicks in and a rail either slide is pushed into the side of the drive to secure it which is fairly slick but of course doesn't allow a 2.5in drive to be mounted at all. I needed an enclosure that would match a 3.5in drive to ensure the drive bay system worked correctly so the Icybox was an obvious choice although I was concerned about the reviews where people had trouble with the screw holes and mounting in a Mac Pro but gave it a go anyway due to the cheap price.

As another reviewer mentions, you need to really slide the drive in tight for the holes to align on the bottom of the enclosure to get the screws in that will hold the drive in place. The first couple of times even though it seemed to have clipped in fine and would go no further the screw holes did not align underneath so needed a really firm push to get them aligned. Minor issue though and after that the case slides back together and then it can be mounted which worked fine, the mounting points in the drive seemed to accept the holes on the enclosure.

Other than that there's not much to say other than the build feels fairly good and good value for money as the price is surprisingly low compared to what some companies are charging for basic brackets.
