5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent buy, 26 Jun 2011
This review is from: Icy Dock MB882SP-1S-2B 2.5 inch to 3.5 inch SATA HDD/SSD Converter - Black (Personal Computers)
I have an Antec P182 case and have struggled to find a 2.5 inch to 3.5 inch converter that will fit into it because it has non-standard mounts. The MB882SP-1S-2B fits the P182 perfectly, because it has exactly the same dimensions as a hard drive and has screw holes in the standard locations. I had bought a cheaper Icy Dock converter (the MB990SP-B Dual) but this was a huge disappointment as it would not fit into my case. The spring loading was not sufficient for a screwless fit, it has no screws underneath the bracket so would not fit into the upper drive cage and the screwholes were in the wrong place for the lower drive cage. There seems to be much confusion surrounding these converters as they all claim to fit most cases but don't list those that they don't.

The SSD that I was installing was a doddle to install - it slots neatly inside the converter, with the power and SATA cables fitting directly onto the converter, not the SSD itself.

Only gripe is that the screws supplied with it were too short to fit through the case's rubber grommets, so I had to improvise with some slightly longer ones. It's a bit more expensive than most, but you can almost guarantee that it will fit your case. Iwould have been even more impressed if it was as cheap when I bought it as it is now!!

What an awesome review! Mentioned the very case I am using, so you just confirmed what I was looking for, thanks!

P182 is a great case :) I have a P180 and a P182 side by side and they look sweet :)

Agreed...an excellent buy. Just ordered my third. Fits well in a HAF 922 case, if you remove the rubber grommets, as otherwise the fit is too tight. Will be buying buy two more, in due course. An example of an inexpensive terrific idea, that solves an annoying device mounting problem well.
