This adapter does not put the SATA connector in the appropriate location for a hotswap bay or hotswap disk enclosure, if anyone cares.
Good point. I noticed the same thing when attempting to install a 2.5" HDD in a hotswap bay I had open. Luckily I had two non-hotswap bays open so I could still use this adapter but it was a disappointment.
I hate buying a cheap item such as this by itself, but I honestly couldn't find anything else I wanted or needed today so that Newegg could make a few bucks off of me. I like to have the vendors make a profit on me so that they will keep giving us some great deals and won't go out of business.
I was just looking at these last night for my PC which has only two 3.5" hard drive slots and a free 5.25" slot. Are there any adapters that fit two 2.5" and one 3.5" drives into a 5.25" bay at the same time? I'd like to fit at least three 3.5" drives total inside the PC but I may have to settle for just two. I found this here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Pro...6816133054
But it doesn't look like it comes with a buffer to muffle down the hard drive noise. It's also open, I'd prefer the front being closed.
Anyone know of any 2.5 and 3.5 to 5.25 adapter for cheap?
