Almost universal.

In the majority of cases you can use this thing to hold your 2.5" (notebook) hard disk or SSD in place of a 3.5" (desktop) hard disk.

All 6 screw holes are present (and in place) in the plastic, you should be able to screw them in. (These are on the side, there are no holes on the bottom yet.)

Not suitable for server cages as the HDD connectors are slightly displaced from the standard position. Tested and working in an HP desktop, a Fujitsu Siemens and in some Imacs.

I very much like the simple design!
little material use - quickly to print :)

but please update the stl, such that the part is flat on the baseplate. -this will be more straight forward to built, as tilting an stl is not a standard operation for most slicers.

I originally designed this thing to be used in Imacs, where the cable has no reserve at all. That is why i wanted to put the small HDDs connector as close to the original as possible. The connectors are displaced only by the width of the plastic holder, otherwise they are in place.

If you move the hard disk to the center, you save one column of plastic...
