Summary: Perfect. I was very disappointed with the very poor plastic version, also made by Icy Dock. So I was prepared to pay more, but had doubts about that company. I am now completely reassured that Icy Dock can make great products. This adapter is easy to use. There is a button to open it smoothly, so no prying or sliding or pushing is necessary. The SDD I use it for (an Intel) got into place perfectly well.
Summary: This is an outstanding enclosure for SSD drive. Setting it up takes less than 30 seconds. Very well made and is worth every penny. If you want a 2.5 to 3.5 adaptor, this item should be your first choice. Do not put off by the price as it is an excellent piece of kit. Thank you Amazon for your packaging, fast delivery and the best price.
Good solid product - simplifies replacing HD with SSD

Summary: This is a very nice product indeed. Well made and well finished. Simplicity itself to use. I used it to replace a failing 3.5" HDD in my iMac with an SSD. Couldn't have been easier (well except for delving into the byzantine innards of the iMac). I think it's well worth paying a little extra for this item rather than the cheaper 2.5" to 3.5" plastic caddies.
Summary: I bought this to fit an SSD into a fullsize desktop, the enclosure is well designed and when closed is exactly the same size as a standard 3.4" drive and has the same mount points. While not the cheapest solution it is solidly built and feels like a quality item. I don't regret buying this instead of one of the cheaper rail type adapters.
Summary: I've been looking for an adapter for a while to mount SSD's into the drive bays of my servers at home but they all presented the SATA connection in the wrong place to match a 3.5" drive bay. This one works a treat. Pity it ain't cheaper, but I can see why it costs what it does, it's very solid and well made.
Summary: This is a solid item that does cost twice the price of a plastic equivalent. However, it is dead easy to use, slots straight into my Mac Pro drive bay and will last. When I am using it to house a Crucial SSD that cost £350 why skimp on the dock?
