Has the correct industry-standard large threading on the exterior-facing screw ports!
I've rolled the dice and tried many a 2.5"-to-3.5" HDD adapter, and most on the market are not correctly tapped/threaded for the standard screws used on 3.5" hard drives. Most come with their own mounting screws, which use nonstandard threading. Not so with this product! This product's screw holes are tapped with the correct threading, so it can be used in computers with very ... uhh ... shall we say "specific" drive mounting needs (such as iMacs and Mac Pros).
Will work in your Mac.
Is basically a generic version of the OWC / NuTech adapter that sells for $20.
best SSD mounting bracket i've used so far. i have installed a few dozen SSD's in desktop systems as well as the occasional [traditional spinning] laptop disk. most of the adapters are cheap, some are hard to work with with small openings for drive mounting screws, threaded non standard holes and ones that make it impossible to line up data/power connectors in Dell or HP mounting trays, this just works and allows way more air flow.
i am taking one point off for the metal they used, feels like cheap tin. if they made this out of aluminum i would have given it 5 stars, even if it cost an extra dollar or two
Comes with all the screws (4 to mount the SSD, 4 to mount the bracket into the rack - make sure you use the smaller screws to mount the SSD). Holes are perfectly aligned - no modification required. Bracket and converter places the plug in the correct place to plug in the data and power cables. I don't know why Amazon doesn't recommend this bracket alongside the Samsung EVO series! Solid, cast aluminum bracket, gold coated contacts on the converter.
This is a very well made bracket that has a clever feature. When you mount a 2.5" SATA HD or SD on it the small circuit board on the bracket effectively realigns the new drive's connections to be in precisely the same location they would be on the 3.5" drive this bracket is meant to emulate. That allows this bracket to be used in systems where a drive is supposed to slide into a single connector in the back of a drive bay. Your newer, smaller drive uses the small circuit board to make that connection perfectly. It also works in systems where that isn't necessary, and its solid construction makes it a winner in those cases, too.
Truly one of the highest quality pieces of computer hardware I've come across. Nice finish and made to close tolerances. I purchased this to adapt a SSD so it could be used in a Kingwing drive rack in one of my older builds. Turned out to be good solution for this scenario and at a reasonable price too. I looked at other adapters only after installing this one so guess I got lucky but the Fenlink adapters high rating steered me to this one and its well deserved. Saved me a lot of time
I needed a bracket which would align the connections of a SSD drive with a Vantec HD bay I use. By mounting my SSD drive in the Fenlink bracket I can slide both SSD drives and regular hard drives into the same bay and it lines up perfectly. This Bracket is not cheap in cost but very well made and really exactly what I was looking for.
