5.0 out of 5 stars Solid, dependable, November 4, 2013
This review is from: SABRENT 2.5 to 3.5 Inches Internal Hard Disk Drive Mounting Kit (BK-HDDH) (Personal Computers)
What more can one say about a product as straight forward as this except that it does exactly what the package insert states: it convert any 2 2.5" Hardrive into a 3.5" drive bay, it is compatible with all types of 2.5" hard drive. Including SSD DRIVES, it is quick and easy to install, and it is or use in 3.5" internal drive bay.

The packaging is excellent and the instructs are simple to follow. The screw pack to mount the drives is included. No hidden problems. The Converter Kit is designed to work with all types of computer cases (screw-on type or tool-less type), and can be installed quickly. So it lives up to the description and the customer service is excellent. Grady Harp, November 13

Patrick says:
A drive mounting bracket would seem simple and straightforward. But as I realized, there are quite a few gotchas that are very common with these. I ordered another maufacturer's 2.5 to 3.5 adapter, and found that they use M3 threading for the external screws instead of the standard 6-32 threading that is standard on 3.5-inch drives (and it wasn't a cheap no-name). Now you might think that since the bracket comes with screws, that wouldn't matter. But many of the higher end cases have special drive bays, which might require use of their own screws. Mine was one of these cases as the screws have rubber bushings on them for vibration. The screws are 6-32 threaded, the industry standard. So when adapters don't conform to the standard, it makes them useless for some people.

Another pain point is that many brackets don't seem to place the screw holes where they should be either.

Just something to be aware of. Even the simple things can be done wrong.
