It pays to be the guinea pig for the new store.

Great bracket only issue was with it interfering with my USB thumbstick plugged in. Not a huge deal as I just cloned it to a shorter thumbstick. Great product! Thanks!

Thanks for the feedback!

That is something I did not explore.

Most of my USB sticks are small.

Now that a fan mod is underway (I think Im gonna be the guinea pig for that mod since noone else seems to want to test it), Im highly looking forward to getting your bracket :)

 

It would be nice to see some options you did and did not explore.

 

Example, Im gonna get 3.5" drive simple because they are cheaper per space. Problably a blank no brand drive to work as my system drive with 4 other seperate HDDs in a DrivePool. I just need to know what drives are compatible with your bracket.

 

Example, Seagate has a ST1000DM003 (1TB) with specs stating its height is 20.17mm and it has a ST500DM002 (500GB) with a 19.98mm

 

In the 2.5" section all they have is ST500LM021 (500GB) with 7.0mm (actually a SSHD)

 

 

 

Thanks doggy and Im sorry about the first time around.

Riahc3,

 

I think it has already been discussed that the thickness of a 3.5" drive means that it will not fit inside a closed Microserver Gen8 case mounted on SchoonDoggy's bracket.

 

I'm pretty sure that option has been "explored".

In this post the drive was around 19.98. 20.17 should be good as well.
