Cons Practically useless for 2.5" drives, it opens up on the side for cables and even than the slots are too small
Summary This product is a waste of money if you plan on using it for 2.5" drives. I bought this to accompany my new SSD and the cables wouldn't be able to connect to the SSD. Had to waste time trying to widen the gap by cutting off some plastic. If you're buying it for 3.5" than it should work.
Pros Packs 3 drives into 1 5.25 bay Lots of normal and self-tapping mounting screws included
Cons Tight cabling space Plastic bracket has no threaded mounting holes
Summary It's true that you can pack 3 drives into this bracket, but cabling for the 2.5in drives is pretty tight on the side of the bracket. Probably you'll have to wire the drives BEFORE you mount the bracket, so unplugging a drive for testing is not going to happen unless you have lots of empty space for your hand above the 5.25 slot you're using. If you have two bays, I'd say buy one of the #40634 bay rafter brackets that will store 3 x 2.5in drives in 1 5.25 bracket. MUCH easier to work with and to cable (see my review over there). I would worry about reusing the self tapping screws to mount the bracket, if I had to pull the bracket every time I wanted to unwire the disks. I don't think I will ever buy another one.
Cons SATA port facing to the side panel instead of the deep side of case.
Summary The 2.5" hard disk or SSD's SATA ports are facing to the side panel of the case. It can be pretty tricky to plug the SATA cable if you have a small case and do not have the straight-head SATA cable. Anyway it works fine if you can set it properly :P
Summary its very organized mount, you can mount 1 3.5" hdd and 2 2.5" ssd's saving you valuable space for your case. i would definitely buy this item again, if i need another one, anytime soon. it is a very organized product.
