Totally useless

Strengths of the product

- Cheap, light

Weaknesses of the product

- Not enough holes to fix on a place of a 3.5'' hard drive - impossible to fix in many Antec and other cases - Wrong thread for screws for 3.5'' drive (see reviews for one drive version http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX42138) - can't be used if a computer case had its own long screws with correct thread - Impossible to use for bottom mounted drives - holes don't match. The bottom holes on this kit for a fan, not for a 3.5'' hard drive.

Additional Comments

Now I have to return it back to ME. I don't understand why they try to sell this junk at all. My worst experience in many years with something I have bought from ME.

Just bad all over

Strengths of the product

Includes screws.

Weaknesses of the product

Warped bracket! Won't hold two drives. Thats what I bought it for. Super cheap build quality.

Additional Comments

I will be returning this. I bought it to hold two laptop drives, they don't physically fit. Avoid this one its rather awful.

Flimsy same

Strengths of the product

Designed okay, frame molded to allow screwing in both SSDs with ease despite side frame.

Weaknesses of the product

Bottom screw holes doesn't align with bottom mount tray. 3 of 4 of the mounting tabs (that stick up) bent in transit, I was able to bend them back but there is a crease. It seems it will hold though.

Additional Comments

Should have read the reviews first. Ended up copying Chris' twist tie idea for an Antec Sonata 3 500. Otherwise seems okay.

Ok, but doesn't work in bottom-mount bays

Strengths of the product

Mounts 2 SSDs in space for 1 3.5" drive

Weaknesses of the product

Doesn't mount from below. All my drive bays have the newer slide-out style caddy, and while the mounting tray appears to have some holes for the bottom, they don't line up with anything we have in our office.

Additional Comments

If you've got a case with the old 3.5" bay with side-mounts, this will work great - otherwise I recommend adding a twist-tie or two.
