Pros: Lets you mount a 2.5" drive in a 3.5" Bay. Sturdy metal.
Cons: This one was my bad.... I didn't check the measurements. The length on these is only as long as a standard 2.5" drive (about 4") instead of the full length of a 3.5 drive. This wouldn't be a problem with screw mounting in a bay but can be an issue if your system uses tool less mounting such as in a Dell. In my case the shorter length only allowed for two point connection so I didn't end up using it. Will save for another project where the size lengthwise isn't critical.
Overall Review: If length isn't an issue this is a fine adapter.
Pros: Well crafted solid metal bracket with well machined screw holes. Bracket fit my 6 year old Rosewill case no problem. Bracket is shorter lengthwise than some other 2.5 to 3.5 inch brackets or mounting bays, allowing me to fit it into my case without disconnecting anything else (your results may vary). Mounting my EVO 860 to the bracket's bottom was no problem.
Cons: Screws included would have pierced the side of my EVO 860 SSD when mounting bracket to case from the side closest to SSD. So I only mounted the bracket to one side of the bay using two screws.
Overall Review: Perhaps the bracket screw holes on the side closest to the drive are designed for Corsair SSDs only? Each bracket side has 3 different holes on it to ensure that you'd likely be able to mount 1-2 screws on each side for most cases, although I wouldn't count on it for pre-built systems.
Pros: Solid metal construction
Cons: Poor mounting placement for the 2.5" drive
Not enough spacing between the drive and the case mounting screw holes
Really short so case mounting points will not match a real 3.5" drive's mount points
Overall Review: So i bought this item more than once, not only here on newegg but also on other sites as well. I was stupid. This was for a client's machine, a Dell that uses normal thread depth screws but has some extra spacing so that they can easily slide into the case. Using the Dell provided screws on one side would impact the shell of the SSD and or hard drive. This is because the drive mount for the 2.5 is not centered so two of the side screw mounts to put it in the case impact the drive you wish to use. In the end i ran to local electronics retailer in the area to buy a batch of different 2.5 to 3.5 mounts that are centered so that the side screws for putting it into a PC case dont impact the drive shell at all.
Oh and another heads up is they are not full depth and are shorter than a 3.5" drive so if you need all the mounting points for the case to be in their normal positions... well good luck as that isnt going to happen. This product was a waste of my time and unlike other instances of communication with corsair, has been a rabbit hole of support help. What did i get for asking for a refund? The same part shipped to me.... over and over again.
The construction seemed nice but since it didnt work i am now left with a very expensive paperweight.
Will not buy and instead i recommend using Duct Tape.
Pros: WORK'S GREAT
Cons: I SAID WORKS GREAT
Pros: Does what it's suppose to do. Hardware fit drive. Not much more to say.
Overall Review: The plastic pins on the Dell tray may be a tad to large to fit in the holes, but with a bit of finesse they popped in. The drive tray is short so only the front\top 2 tabs will engage the tray, but that's fine. I suppose you could add some double sided tape or Velcro, but I did not see the need. Connectors are just where they should, be so no contortions are required to attach the cables. This will not fit into something like a Thermaltake BlacX dock and I suspect not fit a drive tray intended for use with a fixed backplane (NAS, etc)
Pros: Does its job. Mounts SSD with 4x M3 screws from below. Side holes are standard 6-32. Made of aluminum.
Overall Review: A no-frills mounting bracket. I like the bottom mount standoffs over the side tags. You don't have to fight with a screwdriver that way.
Pros: When mounted in the bottom slot, a 2.5" drive's SATA and power connectors will end up in the same spot as a 3.5" drive's would. This adapter is full length and fits well in Dell plastic drive caddies.
Cons: The mounting screws are in tiny plastic bags that are rolled up tight and bound by tape. A minor inconvenience if you're installing one of these, but if you have to get through 5-10 it starts to become a pain.
Overall Review: This is my go-to adapter for replacing 3.5" spinning disks with 2.5" SATA SSDs in Dell desktop systems.
Pros: I purchased this mounting bracket because of it's no nonsense design. Some others have weird designs and take up extra space. This one makes it easy to mount a 2 1/2" platter drive or SSD into a 3 1/2" drive bay. Good quality and sturdy design makes this a good choice for any upgrade. I have used other brands in the past that were hard to install and caused me problems. I will stick with Corsair for as long as it is available.
Cons: I have heard it won't work in some brands of computers. Reason is that some PC companies and manufactures don't follow industry standards and make it difficult to make changes or upgrades of any kind. So make sure you check this out thoroughly.
Overall Review: I would recommend this mounting bracket to anyone that tinkers with or does repairs of any kind.
