Thought I'd post this for anyone who has bought or is going to buy a 2.5" SSD and slot it into a 3.5" bay.

All you need to install your SSD basic kits.

Considering brackets alone are ~£5 on amazon, this seems like a good deal. I bought this yesterday at 2pm-ish to mount my Samsung 830 (also purchased yesterday from amazon lightning deal), and it arrived today in the post.

Quality of the bracket is good, cables made by Foxconn.

P.S. If voting cold please post similar alternative kit.

You voted cold for that reason? 100% positive feedback, including my own relaying how fast they are.

Oh well, I hope this helps someone out? I'm pleased with it.

Voted hot thanks OP.

Bit confused about the FB post what is so bad with FB, rated at 4.8/4.9 out of 5

my mounting kit consisted of 2 cable ties, would of used blutack but wanted something more secure, SSD's do not need special cradles, no moving parts, no vibration, what a con, both sata cable and molex conv should be no more than £1e at local computer shop:)

Another deal for the gullible!

Thanks for the insult!

Have you considered that you could have just placed the SSD in the bottom of the PC case, and saved yourself the cost/hassle of 2 cable ties? Queue witty retort?

Where did I say that I'd voted?

I bought this item from this seller a few weeks ago for my ssd

and its a good "proper job" solution to mounting a ssd securely, plus sata and power cables

no issues with seller either

Not voted cold, but OP item is typical of a current low-ish price for an SSD mounting solution.
Similar functioning item is cheaper at £6.40 delivered 1st class via Top Rated Seller on the bay - assuming you can live without the "Speed Demon" sticker and a few less plastic bags. Or same at £5.95 if you can tolerate 2nd class delivery.

Personally find both solutions a little OTT. I usually use a couple of elastic bands in pseudo-fig8 pattern with the SSD slung in between.
That is probably the cheapest way of mounting an SSD (and the elastic bands provide a beneficial built-in shock-absorbing feature), plus the elastic bands are free - just follow Royal Mail posties on their rounds.
