I opted for this metal version, and it does work (after one try when the SSD wasn't recognized by the system, remedied by pulling the caddy back out, fussing over the adapter without really changing anything, then re-installing). However, it did leave me with some concerns, as follows.
- the holes for the four mounting screws were correctly positioned but required more than the expected amount of force to drive in the screws. It was as if the holes were not pre-threaded. Tightening these screws into a real 3.5 drive feels like a precision operation. Tightening them into this adapter made me hope I wasn't cross-threading the screws.
- there is a clever mechanical linkage that automatically slides your SSD into the connector fitting as you close the hinged lid of the adapter. Unfortunately, since the lid hides the evidence, you don't really know how well the SSD connector has been mated into the adapter's connector. All the way? Or perhaps a millimeter shy? We are depending on the precision of the sheet metal parts for a tight (but non-damaging) fit.
- there are air vents, but not particularly extensive. My SSD temperature is running about 85F (in 70F ambient) - this may be normal (I don't know what a "normal" SSD temp is).
In comparison, Icy Dock's plastic version of this article doesn't look so bad. The plastic injection molding is probably more precise than the other's sheet metal work. It has nice looking brass threaded inserts for the mounting screws. You snap your SSD in yourself, then slide on the plastic lid, so the critical installation step is in sight. Next time, I would probably go with the plastic version.
It lost a star because of a concern I have with the metal spring that supposedly holds the drive down. I put a drive in one to test for fit and took it right back out. In only a minute or so, the label on the drive had been dented in exactly the spots where the spring rested against the drive top. This concerns me for the long-term metal fatigue that might occur because of having something constantly pressing down so hard on the top of the drive, and not even bothering to distribute the load -- merely pressing on two points. A plastic or metal device to spread the load would have helped considerably here, I think.
Thankfully I will be using them 'flat' so I don't need this spring to hold my drives in place (the plastic lever that keeps them against the interface connector does not require either this spring or the rod on which the spring pivots), so I removed the offending spring. Now these hold my drives firmly in place against the internal connector (with gravity holding them down flat -- I would have used something else, that would not have added point loads to the top of the drive, to hold them down if I were using these on side, though), and I have an easy way to deal with having the drives involved in an existing hotswap backplane with numerous 3.5" drives.
I have a Corsair Cube Case. At the bottom of the case are two immovable 3 1/2" drive bays with the connectors built into the case at the end of the drive bay. 3 1/2 inch drives snap in. Absolutely no cables are used. This converter slid in and snapped in perfectly.
This means that the connectors are located absolutely identical in form factor to a standard 3.5" Hard Drive as far as I could see not even off by a mm.
Another nice features.
This Drive Bay is tool less. I'm Mr 2 thumbs and I had no problem fitting my Samsung 2.5" Evo Drive in it and the way it's done should work for any 2.5" drive.
This was a flawless easy install!
Note: The soldering looked ugly, but since it worked I won't take a star off
You can buy this product with confidence that it will allow your 2/5" Drive to go anywhere a standard 3.5" drive will go
