5.0 out of 5 stars Can't substitute a normal 2.5" drive, 13 May 2013

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This adapter only "creates" something approaching, but not of quite the same physical dimmensions as, a 2.5" internal hard drive. I have a Dell Precision M4600 which has two disk drives: a mini SSD card - which I was upgrading; and a normal 2.5" SSD drive. Initially I tried to replace the normal 2.5" SSD drive with the new card on this adapter. The disk drive on the Dell slides in and out so there is no access to the female sockets into which the pins on this adapter must go for it to be fitted as a disk drive - other than at the other end of the tunnel in the computer in which the disk drive sits. The adapter was too thin for the pins on the adapter to plug into the female bits on the computer when I pushed it into the disk drive space. I tried padding it out to make it fit, but to no avail. This was not an significant issue for me because I was only trying to put it into the disk space so that I could clone the new mSATA card. But unless you have unobscured access directly to the female socket on the computer you will, at the very least, have huge problems in trying to fit this assembly into a normal disk drive space - if it can be done. I ended up having to use an external disk caddy, as well as the adapter to create an external drive which could be cloned. This worked fine.
