And yet you can get around 4 1TB platter disks for that price.

You missed my point...

I had an old Lian Li case that i used for a LONG time. It didnt have any native support for 2.5" SSDs. When i got my first SSD circa 2009, i simply attached 2 strips of velco tape to it and secured it in my case that way. worked fine.

Depends on how old that Lian-Li case is.

 

If it's older than 2004 (the age of my own Lian-Li), unless you're actually using the floppy bay, an SSD can go there - if anything, it will STILL be too small unless you have an adapter for 3.5" bays, as that size is that of a typical floppy drive.  (That is one thing most "desktop" SSD packages usually include - an adapter for 3.5" floppy bays.)

I know that..

 

I was saying good job and high five that person because he used the velcro strips.   That's what the rednecks do these days such as duct tape, velcro strips, etc.

 

A friend of mine built tripod mount for his phone that is made of wood....  he is redneck.   Save money. Instead of buying from the store.
