The FLEX-FIT Trio MB343SP is a very unique 3.5” to 5.25” front bay adapter. At first glance is of what looks like a simple 3.5” to 5.25 device bay adapter, but there is more than meets the eye. We’ve created a device that utilizes a single external 5.25” bay and converts it into 2 x 2.5” HDD/SSD slots and a 3.5” device or hard drive bay designed for tool-less drive installation. The FLEX-FIT Trio MB343SP pushes the envelope with its unique features and brilliant engineering. As a result, you get a beautifully crafted adapter that is sturdy, flexible and multifunctional.

The device has two levels, so that dual SSD can be mounted. The SSD slides in and fits snugly, and is held in place by a couple of plastic tabs.. Then the entire assembly went into the computer exactly right. I have no complaints at all about this model. They include four small screws to secure the holder into the bay, but those were not needed, because Dell has sliding removable mounts.
The only thing to note is that the drives may sit further away from the end of the mount than a normal 3.5 drive, so you might need to be creative with running the power and data cables to the SSD. Not really that big a deal.
Summary: If you are looking for a good SSD mounting solution at a great price, look no further. Highly recommended.
Holds the designated drives fairly securely--it doesn't feel like the drives would be able to fall out.
A very simple, clean appearance.
Front port allows you to use hot-swappable 3.5" drive setups.
- The entire thing is constructed from single piece of plastic. This concerns me as to the longevity of the product.
- Terrible arrangement of drive mounting. You are unable to install 2.5" drives unless you have straight angled SATA power cables, and I don't know of many PSUs that include straight angled SATA power cables. If the 2.5" drive mounts were placed 3/4 of an inch back then this would not be an issue. Included picture reflects this.
+ A simple work-around for this issue would be to mention that a straight-angle SATA power adapter would be required when mounting 2.5" and 3.5" drives.
The spring retention for the 2.5" drives feels quite stiff when mounting the drives, and when factoring in the plastic, it results in a bit of an uncomfortable feel when mounting SSDs, which I'm sure a good number of people would use such an item for.
If you need a cheap solution for mounting a single 3.5" HDD or two 2.5" drives/SSDs, this will work as intended. Just be aware that it is made of plastic, and if you intend to use both drive sizes, you WILL need straight SATA power plugs for the 2.5" drives.
Specifically, I'd like to be able to mount 6x 2.5" SSD's in a small SuperMicro Case that can normally mount 2 or 4 (with 2 supermicro cages) 2.5" HDD/SSDs. The case can alternatively hold 2x3.5" hdds, and this works well for that, but we loose the ability to use the expansion slot completely.
Also, I suspect that a metal cage would be better for heat dissipation from the installed drives. A simple bent metal, 3x7mm drive cage would be wonderful, even if that meant losing hot swap capability. a 1mm (20 Ga) thick sheet metal, properly cut drilled and bent would work great! Wish I had the metal shop and skills to build it myself!
The other issue I had was, with two SSD's installed and with the whole assembly snapped into the Dell drive carrier, the carrier was uneven due to flex in the adapter. With a normal 3.5" drive in the carrier, everything is straight. With this in the carrier, it isn't straight and won't slide into the bay.
All in all, this adapter has it's uses and works in some scenarios, but it not a universal adapter.
I am giving the basic design 5 stars and am knocking it down a star because my particular setups (HP Z210 workstations) require 90 degree connectors for both the power and data connectors. I am still looking for a connectors that will work when the drives are so close together. I ended up using one bracket for each SSD. Also some spacers would be nice as the Samsung SSDs I am using a kind of sloppy in the bracket. I wouldn't mark the product down for that, however. The brackets fit nicely into my hard drive caddies that come with the Z210s.

Good product, but cheap feeling. Screw's don't line up with my case, and it's obviously 3D printed with some cheap film.Read more
