Sturdiest brackets I’ve ever used.
July 22, 2019
A lot of techies would tell you to bypass the SSD/SATA bracket during conversion and to simply leave your junk freewheeling or to use tape. Well although I’m not an official techie here is my opinion on what is wrong with that and why you should always use brackets. If you leave your junk hanging and you do this for someone who at a later time moves their computer the chances are there could be damage. Or, who knows, maybe you will forget you took a shortcut on your own machine. Or maybe you work on your mother’s computer or heaven forbid your mother-in-law’s or worse yet your teenager’s gaming computer!!! Just because SSDs don’t have moving parts doesn’t mean you should inflict random movement on them. For those folks that believe tape is the answer...there is this stuff, you may have seen it, it’s called dust, yeah, that stuff, and hair and bugs and it’s not like there won’t be enough already that will be wafting by (have you been in a teenager’s room lately?) You definitely don’t need something like tape grabbing dust and other ick out of the air. And for any other claims of “leave the SATA hanging” because the cable is strong enough to stay in place, well maybe it is, but why, would you want to risk something going wrong at a later date and having your teenager come in and give you lip because they think you half way did the job and left a dangling cable that, even though it is probably perfectly and legitimately fine it looks like it’s wrong and they will have the chance to never let you live it down nor will they be convinced that the problem is not arising from the lack of a bracket. I’d rather not give my kids an opportunity to think I did something wrong, so I’m going to just go ahead and secure everything to begin with and you should, too. These brackets are solid, easily secured and get the job done they are well coated with what appears to be a powder coat not just some cheap paint, I’m very impressed with these brackets.
