I have a hot swap caddy (Antec) which allows me to plug a

an adapter which will accept a 2.5 inch ssd to fit into
the caddy. Bytecc seemed to offer such an adapter, but
it only fits into a 3.5 inch slot with no capability
of engaging the connections.

I would appreciate any information about the availability
if such an adapter.


Kingwin HDCV-4

I also have a hot swap caddy that can accept
3.5 and 2.5 at the same time.
It works, but the plastic mechanism is very flexible
and I'm afraid I'm gonna break it with every ejection.

Thanks for responding. I just ordered the HDCV-4 from NewEgg.
Except for the lack of ventilation, it looks ok.

I do have a Kingwin Hot Swap Caddy that takes the 2.5 drive,
but the caddies are no longer available from Kingwin.

Caddy? I just use the SSD with some folded over tape to help extract
it. The 4 side mounting brackets for the 2.5" drive act as guides. No
caddy needed.

Usually use this Rosewell adapter:
