The AdaptaDrive 2.5" to 3.5" Drive Converter Bracket from Newer Technology enables you to install a 2.5" hard drive or SSD in a 3.5" SATA drive bay. This bracket features a circuit board bridge adapter that supports SATA III interfaces. By offering a bridge adapter with this bracket, you can easily install a faster 2.5" drive to the backplane tray in Mac Pros. This adapter delivers direct pass through performance so your SATA III drive maintains its 6 Gb/s transfer speed without any slowdown from bottlenecking or performance throttling. For supporting drives with slower SATA speeds, it is also backwards compatible with SATA II and SATA I interfaces. In addition, the aluminum converter bracket features an open design, which allows your cooling system to provide cool air to flow around the drive.

Allows you to use your 2.5" hard drive or SSD in 3.5" drive bay-equipped desktop Mac, PC, or external enclosure
Standard 3.5" drive screw mounting locations
Install any 2.5" drive in a 3.5" SATA drive bay (including backplane trays found in the Mac Pro)

    AdaptaDrive 2.5" to 3.5" Drive Converter Bracket is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 106.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best drive adapter with best price I use the Newertech AdaptaDrive converter bracket with all of the SSD drives I have purchased. It is easy to install the SSD onto the bracket and easy to install into the hard drive bay. It includes screws to attach the SSD drive to the bracket. It has screws with 2 different thread counts, so you will find one that works. This bracket is the best bracket I found and has the best price of any bracket. It is very well made and light weight. There are multiple mounting options, with screws on the side and bottom, so you can pick the one that works best. I would highly recommend this bracket when you want to install an SSD drive into a 3.5-inch drive bay.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mediocre Honestly, if you have another one of these lying around, use it. This one just isn't worth buying. Besides the fact that it just looks ugly, it also is a little faulty, in my experience. Basically, the SSD plugs in the bracket, and the bracket itself have the connections for sata and for the power. This wouldn't be a problem if the connections had locks (locking the sata and power cord in place), but it doesn't. If you aren't super careful, the cables could just pop out because for whatever reason, they don't lock in. I don't know if they're supposed to have a lock mechanism or not, but a tray like this needs something like that.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from AdaptaDrive 2.5 to 3.5 adapter I use these adapters to mount 2.5 SSDs into 3.5 bays inside two of my PCs. One of my computers actually has a couple of 2.5 bays available, but the wire routing was much better when I mounted my SSD in the 3.5 bay. Very nice brushed aluminum black finish. Easy install, slide the SSD into the adapter's connector, fasten the SSD to the adapter with 4 small machine screws, mount and fasten the assembly to the 3.5 drive bay, and connect the SATA cable to the adapter. One good thing about the SATA connection....there is a card adapter between the SSD and the SATA connector, which is a good design because it relieves stress from the point of connection on the SSD.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Install, Simple to Use This AdaptaDrive has been a go to when I was expanding my HDD's on my mac pro. I don't use any other ones. They are intuitive and fit perfectly for my mac. I recommend this to anyone who is looking to expand their storage on their computers.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well designed, excellent quality product I purchased this adapter to mount an SSD drive in my PC. This product is a far better option than the typical plastic adapters that are on the market. The AdaptaDrive is the only product I've seen that provides SATA and power connectors to interface with the 2.5 drive. This prevents the cabling issues users have reported with other adapters. The AdaptaDrive is also solid metal and extremely well built. The open design is also great for air flow around the drive. The AdaptaDrive costs more than the plastic alternatives, but it's worth every cent.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A no brainer Installation in a MacPro 2008 was easy peasy. The drive screws onto the bracket and the assembly slides into the drive bay.
    Date published: 2017-09-20
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made and sturdy I was expecting something in thin plastic, but this a metal frame, with a beautiful anodized finish. The edges are smooth without any burrs. The included screws were a perfect fit for my SSD card. The connectors were secure, and appear to be well made. It felt solid when I installed it in my desktop. It should hold the drive securely and I don't anticipate any issues because it is so well made.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Piece of junk, spend more on the proper OCZ sleds. I cheaped out and got burned. Product was DOA confirmed by the manufacturer, which was of no help at all to resolve the problem. This is going into the garbage as I'm not spending more money then the product is worth in exchanging it. I rather just spend any more money on the OCZ sled for my MacPro and be done with it. The circuit board on these units are cheaply made. Proceed at your own risk, lesson learned.
