Pros - They widen your drive - Very cheap - low price
Cons - They don't widen it quite enough (was nearly 1cm short) - Both sets I received were very rusty inside.... - Very cheap - low quality
Summary I bought these expecting to be happy just to be able to fully use my 5.25" bays. Unfortunately, the brackets, on two different hard drives, did not widen them enough to actually sit on both lips to hold them. I had to use washers to widen them more just for them to be able to sit in place... This is in a Corsair 550D, so I don't know whether this is just specific to my case or what. It was frustrating nonetheless. My biggest complaint though is the fact that of the two sets I bought, all four brackets were rusty inside. This is not only horrible to work with, but makes me wonder how they even store these things. In the end, I didn't expect too much for the price, it's just too bad they didn't work quite as expected and were rusty.
Summary Bought these to put a hard drive into a 5.25 inch bay and simply works fine. It could use some better quality on the screws since they are easily broken after a few use. Overall, good for the price and works as advertise.
Summary These are pretty simple brackets that do exactly what they are supposed to do and nothing else. No rubber mountings or anything like that.. you get two pieces of metal that let you put a 3.5in drive (or a 2.5in drive in 3.5in bracket) into a 5.25 bay.
Cons unsure what the screws are meant for - too small for SSD or case holes...
Summary Instead of buying a 5.25 to 2.5 kit, I bought this because my SSD came with a 3.5 adapter. So now my SSD sits in two adapters. A little wobbly, maybe? Well, good thing SSD's don't spin or move or stuff. And with some screws that did NOT come with this adapter, I was able to make it work.
Cons Would love to have had a diagram to work from
Summary It may sound obvious but it took a while to figure out the best way to use these rails. I had extra 5.25 bays but needed to mount a 3.5 inch drive, these were cheap and effective but a little picture of how to use them would have been nice!
Summary Wonderful part, it does the job perfectly. I ordered four of them, and have not used any yet, but I checked and they have the right dimensions and screw-holes (that sounds dirty). They are shiny metal and have all the features that I would like to see in a set of drive brackets.
