Totally Useful Drive Adapter

I got this a few weeks ago to solve a form factor problem. My desktop had the rails for a 3.5" drive only, and I have a higher quality/high capacity 2.5" that I wanted to use and this solved the issue. It's size is that of a standard 3.5" drive in which a 2.5" fits. You slide the red button to the side and the spring loaded door opens. Once a 2.5" drive is placed inside, the door guides it in. The product came with suitable instructions and small screws to attach it to the computer's rails. I think a small 'hint' printed on the door that opens would be useful for those of us that rarely read instructions.

Great solution

I have been using this device from time to time over the past few weeks. I have tested this with multiple 2.5" drives and in different computers and drive duplicators. This product comes in a nice little box, just slightly bigger than the enclosure itself. It has instructions which I don't think are necessary (very self explanatory) as well as screws for permanent mounting in a computer or drive tray. The enclosure is very light and I almost thought that the shipping box was empty until I shook it. There are many ventilation holes along the bottom to allow air/heat to circulate. When a drive is inserted in the enclosure, it does not actually make a connection until the door is closed and the 2.5" drive is pressed into place. When the door is opened, it ejects the drive and lifts it out of the enclosure. This is very well designed and works smoothly. I am able to even remove and add disk into the enclosure while connect to a computer and the drives are automatically detected. The enclosure is the same size as a 3.5" drive and has the same screw holes so it can be secured anywhere any 3.5" drive can be secured. It looks like it just passes through the SATA port, so I don't think I will see any compatibility issues with any disk/computer. What a great product, another StarTech "must-have IT gem". I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.

Nice product- well built

This is a fantastic item for anyone who needs to use a 2.5" drive in a 3.5" bay. I used this item using an 512GB SSD. The 2.5" drive slides in effortlessly and makes connection with ease. I tried to remove the drive using the release and it had no issues ejecting the 2.5" drive from the case. I took the drive and placed it into my iMac which requires a 3.5" drive and it worked perfectly. This is great for these older legacy Macs without having to use fancy specialized adapters. The product build is excellent and I look forward to a speedier iMac. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review

Seems not to work in Dell Dimension Desktops

When I install this into a Dell Dimension Desktop with a Crucial MX 300 275GB SSD, the computer will lock up. If I plug directly into the drive without this device it seems to work fine.
