I want to get an 3.5"->5.25" HD adapter to mount a Samsung F3 1TB. I know none of these is going to be as good as suspension, but as I need to ship the PC intact I don't think that's practical (and I'm not that handy, so using an adapter will be a lot easier for me than trying to rig up suspension!)

I've found a few different options (sorry if this looks like a Scan promotion, I just couldn't be bothered to look around) and would be interested if anyone has experience/opinions on them.

I doubt I'd be prepared to spend more than £10, so the Scythe Himuro is probably out but I listed it as it's about half the price of the Quiet Drive, so I'm curious to know if it's any good.
