Affordable, Multi-platform, Useful, Intuitive
The bracket is 'required' for mounting a pair of 2.5" drives inside of a Super Micro 5015A-H server. With the growing popularity of SSDs, I certainly hope Super Micro decides to start supplying this to its various server retailers. It was a mild headache finding a competitive and reliable supplier solely for this item.
I would consider this a bit expensive for what it is--stamped steel with some machining. It is probably no more than a few dollars worth of material and labor, but nonetheless, it is useful, especially since it fits the preferred form factor of SSDs.
Installation is trivial, and the bracket ought to have enough space between the drives to mount the thicker 2.5", 10k SAS drives. Be sure to check whether your motherboard supports such drives first!
Also, and important to NON-server-oriented consumers, this bracket would be ideal for mounting a pair of 2.5" drives inside of a low-profile HTPC (the ones where 3.5" drives are mounted on the bottom face of the drive), especially if the multimedia PC has NAS, or doesn't require the inherently greater throughput of larger diameter drives.
