If it don't fit, Duck it!

  • Summary: I wanted to mount an SSD in a 5.25" bay in the first gen Stacker STC-01 cleanly, that means without a 2.5 to 3.5 adaptor mounted in a 3.5 to 5.25 adaptor. This tray fit the bill, only the screw holes were a tiny bit off for the Stacker's drive rails.
  • Pros: Holds an SSD in a 5.25 bay, sort of. Rolled edges, no first aid needed. Cheap.
  • Cons: Mount holes off just a smidge for my old Cooler Master CM Stacker drive rails.

Its a mount *Video*

  • Summary: Also, if you are planning on using the SATA power cables from your PSU you will more than likely be limited to using just one of the two available "slots" to install an SSD. My Corsair 750's SATA power cables were upside down which ended up taking too much space to install the drive in the lower...
  • Pros: Lightweight, fit in drive bay width-wise. (Antec 1200) My Intel SSD's holes lined up well with it.
  • Cons: Holes did not line up with case holes. (Antec 1200) Had to use the right front hole and the rear left hole for best hold.

  • Summary: Make sure to use the top set of holes in your drive bay, it won't fit in the bottom set.

Over priced stamped aluminum!

  • Pros: Comes with pilot holes!!!
  • Cons: Had to bore out one of the holes with a handheld rotary tool to get my 2.5" SSD in. Then I had to do it again to get the bracket to lign up with the 2 quick-install pins on my case's internal rack. When neither my OCZ SSD drive fits in it well or into my Cooler Master case it's certainly the brac...

great solution

  • Summary: I prefer this to the 3.5->2.5 models because I was able to completely remove the 3.5in three drive cage from my A05N. My cool running x25-M is now situated in the very top of the case and I have removed all 3.5in disks from my machine ... including the legacy drive cage. perfect.
  • Pros: 1. Aluminum, just like the case it goes in. 2. Comes with everything you need
  • Cons: It doesn't seem to be designed to function with the lian li faceplate blanks. Obviously it will be used with blanks installed since it has no protruding external functions. I was able to make everything fit A-OK but felt like there were some space issues.

Perfect for a Lian Li case

Noah L., Newegg

  • Summary: I know next to nothing bout how much heat 2 SSD's create sitting right on top of each other, but it seems a little more space between them might be a good idea.
  • Pros: Uses a 5.25 by instead of a 3.5. Most full ATX cases have 4 or so 5.25 bays and need at most 2 for optical drives, so are likely to have this space free. Hold 2 SSDs. Fits perfectly in a Lian Li Case.
  • Cons: none

Does it's job.

  • Summary: It's a metal bracket. Pretty straight-forward.
  • Pros: -It fits in a 5.25" bay -It holds 2.5" hard drives
  • Cons: -Doesn't line up perfectly in a Thermaltake Armor+. Not a big deal though. -Slightly thinner than I would like. It isn't flimsy or anything though.
