I have a Dell Optiplex 755 which has 2 internal 3.5inch hard drive bays. I bought this adapter bracket to allow me to mount a 3rd hard drive in a vacant 5.25inch bay.

The bracket comes with 2 sets of screws. Attach the bracket to the drive using the 4 'HDD size' screws provided. The bracket then provides 4 screw holes in the standard location for an optical (CD, DVD) drive. Use the 4 'CD size' screws provided to fix everything into the optical drive bay.

In the case of my Dell, 5.25in drives are located and slid into position using 3 shoulder screws provided with the PC. These fitted to the bracket without problem (I didn't need the screws supplied with the bracket), and the new hard drive clicked into place and is now up and running. No probs whatsoever.

Note that you don't need a bezel to cover the front of the drive, as a 3.5in drive is shorter from back to front compared to a 5.25inch drive, and so will sit happily well back from the existing front panel bezel.

Hope this helps

I Fitted this using a standard 3.5 HDD on the top bay [optical disk drive] in HP Proliant 40L Microserver. Although it fits in fine but would have been better with instructions, i would suggest using the image in the amazon listing to work out the correct positioning when fitting.

The product finish is fine, not the greatest but does the job, there is a very little movement if you manually try to press the disk up and down [it's not rock solid as it should be], but that should not be a big issue unless you live in a constantly heavily shaking building.

One piece of advise, use the screws supplied by the HP Proliant 40L Microserver, they are attached on the server door [inside side], refer to HP user manual if you have trouble locating them. The screws which comes with brackets are way too small and won't help with installation.

For some time now, a couple of years in fact, I have been looking for brackets like these, not constantly but slipped into my mind a few times. Problem is most modern ATX cases still have the 3 or 4 5.25" drive bays from the days where users could have 2xCDROM/RW and 1xDVDROM/RW in those days the space was necessary, the hard drives always get dropped to the bottom of the case. I am guessing nowadays, like myself, many home users only have 1 5.25" drive bay occupied with a DVDRAM which does everything but we still have 3 or 4 unoccupied bays and hard drives sitting on the bottom. Problem for me especially with the large graphic cards now available is that there is a mess of cables and very little space to fit more than 1 hard drive around a long graphic card. This is the solution, its simple and works brilliantly. Take out hard drive(s) screw bracket to hard drive(s) and pop them in a 5.25" drive bay. There are no instructions and several ways to fix the brackets just choose which suits you best.
Now my 2 hard drives sit under my DVDRAM in 2 of the 4 5.25" bays I have available and a bonus is I can and have reversed my hard drives so the power and data cables face the front thus hiding any wiring and saving even more space. My XFX Radeon HD5870 graphic card has lots of room now, more air flows around it and there are no hard drives to obstruct it. I can even install a 2nd graphic card now the hard drives have been moved without juggling drives around.
Innovative product, cheap and brilliant.

Only have a small case so space in case was tight and needed a 3.5' bay for another piece of hardware. Had a 5.25' bay up top free so decided to use this mounting kit to move the HDD to there. The mounts seem well made and come with mounting screws. Some other reviewers stated that they couldn't get access to the screws to mount the HDD but i didn't experience this, i mounted the mounts in the same orientation as they are shown in the photo and used the top long slot cutouts, which are accessed easily through the large cutout holes on the outside. However if you had to use the holes beneath the slot cutouts for whatever reason i can see that access would be more tricky and so this could be a design flaw in some cases. Once adapters mounted to rails the whole unit easily slid into the 5.25' bay and was then secured with the mounting screws that thread into the tapped holes on the outside if the adapters. Don't over tighten these as you run the risk of stripping the thread as it is only fairly thin metal. Overall a great adapter kit at a great price that has done the job perfectly.

I bought this because I had a dilemma: I'd already filled all of my 3.5" drive bays, but then I was given another HDD. I didn't want to leave it lying around gathering dust, so I got this.

When the bracket arrived, I was somewhat confused as to how it was meant to fit. There are a couple of ways that it could go (as you can see from the picture), and no obvious indications of which is correct, and no instructions are provided. I reattached the pieces to my HDD a few times before settling on a way that seemed to fit both the HDD and the case.

The other issue I had is that my case (a Cooler Master Centurion 5 - the link goes to the slightly newer version with more bays) uses toolless fittings for the drive bays. Everything I have fits happily with it, except for this bracket. It looks like I've got the holes in the right places, but they just aren't quite big enough for the fittings to go through. As it is I now have the HDD somewhat wedged in; it's unlikely to fall out, but it's less of a good fit than I'd hope for.

All in all, this seems to do its job (I no longer have a 1TB HDD lying around doing nothing), but could've done with some instructions and possibly bigger holes.
