Options to Mount a SSD

All, I ordered a Crucial SSD and am looking for options for mounting it in my case. I saw 2.5 to 3.5 bay adapters, i also heard of people using doubled sided sticky tape.. whats everyone recommend or has done?

Thanks!

Unless you bought it refurbed then it will come with an adapter to mount it into a 3.5" bay.

Bought an OCZ SSD recently that didn't come with an adapter, just a drive and a 1 page manual in a blister pack. Fortunately it was going in a laptop.

I'd use proper 2.5-3.5 brackets.

my two retail drives didn't come with mounting adapters. I just set them in loosely in the drive bay above other things.

they seem fine

if all else fails, ducktape works ok. I mean, it's not like its a brick like a traditional HDD
