2.5-inch to 3.5-inch Hard Drive/SSD Mounting Adapter/Conversion Kit

 
 
What is Hard Drive/SSD Mounting Adapter?
 

From 3.5-inch HDD to 2.5-inch SSD then finally M.2 SSD, the physical form factor of the drives has not only shrunken from a chunky brick into a size of gum stick but also the transfer speed of the drives has drastically increased from SATA 3Gbps to a soaring NVMe 32Gbps. While the digital storage hardware is evolving fast, compatibility of the new HDD/SSD to the older generation system chassis has become a challenge for many gamers and system integrators. Therefore, the SSD/HDD mounting adapter is a great tool to adapt to those changes in drive form factors. They have the same specifications as a 3.5-inch HDD or 2.5-inch SSD: Same screw holes location, position of the connector, and precise dimension. It makes them compatible with systems use HDD/SSD backplane or drive trays, such as Datacenter, File Server, NAS, DAS, All-in-one PC, Laptop PC, iMac, and Mac Pro.

Tip: For PC systems with hard drive expansion bay but without HDD backplane we recommend using Drive Bay Conversion Kit/Mounting Bracket
 
 
 
Why Using Hard Drive/SSD Mounting Adapters?

It becomes common knowledge that the use of SSD (Solid-State Drives) or NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) can significantly improve the storage performance of the system, especially in data storage-based servers or external storage applications. However, due to the older generation backplane design, in order to use next-generation drives such as M.2 drives, the system builder or user must upgrade the entire system, which could be very expensive. However, by using SSD Mounting Adapters, gamer or system integrators are now able to upgrade their system storage device completely without changing the entire hardware configuration of their system.

2.5-inch to 3.5-inch Hard Drive/SSD Mounting Adapter

Design for systems with 3.5-inch SATA/SAS drive bay and hard drive backplanes such as datacenter, file server, removable 3.5-inch HDD enclosures, PC workstation, or iMac/Mac Pro. The 2.5-inch to 3.5-inch drive mounting adapter converts a 2.5-inch SATA/SAS HDD or SSD with a thickness between 5-15mm into a standard 3.5-inch SATA/SAS hard drive.
