I browsed Newegg.COM looking for mounting hardware and a possible external enclosure for the Intel SSD that I got on yesterday's deal.

I found several ICY DOC brand enclosures that have mail in rebates.
ICY DOC ENCLOSURES

I chose this one.at $16.99 plus tax after a $5 mail in rebate.

It's worth a look if you are dealing with a 2.5" drive and want to connect it with a SATA cable or would like a nice clean fit in a 3.5" space.

Simpler brackets are available on eBay for $1.99 shipped. May not have as many bells and whistles but works the same.

I'm trying to rescue data from a dead laptop (drive should still be OK)... what should I be searching for on eBay?

I had the same problem so I bought this for $8 from Amazon. It's surprisingly nice in quality. Simple but did the job.

If you're just trying to rescue data I wouldn't bother with a bracket. I would just set the drive on top/near/beside the case on a non-conductive surface (cardboard box, anti-static bag, etc). If you still want one just search for "2.5 to 3.5 bracket."

I'm still going to need an adapter to get me from 2.5" SATA form factor to USB interface.
