Ideal for Home Theater PCs! For adding an optical drive and a 2.5"drive.
This module is for 5.25" bays, allows for mounting a 12.7mm slim ODD (SATA or PATA) and 2.5" SATA hard drives with 9.5 mm height. It also has two front USB 2.0 connectors, ideally suited for use in multimedia applications, such as for HTPCs.
This set of 2.5" Drive Mounting Rails help you upgrade your computer's storage potential by allowing you to easily fix a 2.5" hard or solid state drive in to your PC chassis. Multiple drilled fixing points mean literally any legacy 3.5" drive bay can be converted to house a smaller 2.5" HDD or faster SSD.
Whether you want to upgrade the HDD inside your PC, or increase your PC's storage space by recycling an old laptop drive to provide additional storage, these adapters will let you do the job quickly and simply.
Converter for 2.5" hard drives and SSDs with 22/29-pole SATA Backplane connection
Fits into every standard 3,5" slot with screw fixing on the underside
Also fits into any 3.5" SATA Backplane - has identical dimensions and connections as a 3.5" SATA HDD
Supports SATA hard drives and SSDs with installation heights of up to 15mm
Converter with latching lever and automatic ejection mechanism
Simply install this adapter frame and converter into the 3.5" slot on your desktop or you can use it like a 3.5" drive in a 3.5" converter!
2.5" drives only need a fraction of the energy needed by a 3.5" drive and a voltage supply of just 5V instead of 5V and 12V. They generate considerably less heat and are considerably quieter when running.
As this adapter frame has the same dimensions and SATA connections as a 3.5" SATA hard drive, it can be used just like a 3,5" SATA drive - this solution uses considerably less energy and produces less heat and noise.
Many PC enclosures allow you to attach 3.5" format hard drives and converters on the underside. This is also possible for this converter.
With converter housings where only side screw attachment is possible, this converter does not have the screw attachment at the same positions as a 3.5" drive: the 3 threaded holes on the side have a clearance from the bottom of 6mm instead of 5mm, only the hole at the extreme rear has the same clearance from the front edge (115 mm); the two front holes however have a clearance of 25 and 85 mm from the front edge.
If 1mm of space is available above the slot, this allows the converter to usually only be attached with the threaded holes at the rear.
Where this is not possible, you can use the LINDY converter No.20969 (max. drive height of 7.5 mm) with standard side attachment instead
Allows you to add extra storage to your machine (SSD is not included)
Designed for use with mSATA or SATA based M.2 SSDs
SATA ODD Slim SATA 13 Pin connector to mSATA and M.2*
Dimensions: 128 x 129 x 12.7mm (WxDxH); fits most standard optical drive bays
The LINDY Slim ODD Caddy for mSATA and M.2 SSD allows you to install M.2 and mSATA SSDs* in your notebook using the optical drive bay. This in turn can be used to add extra storage or dual boot capabilities to your computer.
Fully integrates into your laptop or notebook, no cables, external power supplies or software drivers required.
*If both M.2 and mSATA SSDs are installed at the same time, only M.2 will work.
Note: This caddy does not support 3.3V HDDs/SSDs and has been designed to fit most 'standard' and 'universal' CD/DVD/Optical drive bays. Due to variations in laptop design, compatibility with all machines cannot be guaranteed.
