Specification

This Product is NOT for the VA0 Saturn.Click Here for our VA0 Saturn MODE Mount Kit. If you don't know which revision of the Sega Saturn you have, then Click Here to check.

NOTE: The "Rev E" MODE units changed the position of the SATA Drive.The mounts should still work with this change, however the Screwless Hard Drive Brackets do not. We're working on an updated version but take not of this fitment issue before ordering.

A 3D printed mount designed to accomodate your MODE (Micro SD-Card/USB/SATA replacement for the Disc Drive) in Sega Saturn VA1-VA15 Consoles. Printed in PLA material and available in black with silver buttons. These mounts offer a much improved way to securely mount the MODE device in your console while making the LEDs, buttons and SD card much easier to access. Not only does it make for a much more complete look when the lid is open but it also allows the use of full-sized SD cards and provides storage for 2 additional cards under the lid. The light from the indicator LEDs is passed to the top surface using Fiber Optic cables and the button pass-throughs are provided in silver to make them easier to see. Also Included is a small bracket that will securely hold the back of your Hard Drive without the use of screws (designed for standard 100x70x7mm SSD drives) , making swapping the hard-drive easy, while also ensure that is fully secured when the console is assembled.

Features:

  • Securely mount the MODE inside your Saturn Conole
  • Top plate with a smooth glossy finish to improve the look of your console with the lid open, and prevent droping things inside the console.
  • SD card extension allows use of full-sized SD cards easily accessable with the lid open.
  • Two extra SD card holders for storing additional cards
  • Button Pass through for access to both buttons on the MODE, provided in a gray/silver color to make them easier to see
  • Fiber Optic LED Pass through allows you to visibly see activity from all 3 LEDs on the mode with the lid open.
  • Screwless Hard Drive bracket allows secure mounting of a hard drive without screws for easy swapping (designed for standard 100x70x7mm SSD drives)
  • Designed for effective air flow. PCB bracket directs hot air to radiate out rather than trapping hot air in.

Included:

  • PCB Mounts with 4 screws
  • Top Plate pre-assembled with fiber-optic LED pass throughs, button extensions and SD Card adapter
  • Screwless Hard Drive Bracket (designed for standard 100x70x7mm SSD drives)

* DOES NOT INCLUDE a MODE device. No screws other than the original screws from your Sega Saturn are needed.

Not a perfect fit...

The instructions say to attach the mounts to the MODE, attach the mounts to the PCB Cage (didn't line up), put the PCB Cage back, then (if need be) secure the SATA Drive with screws (now buried). I suggest doing this in the reverse. The 860 EVO I used sat too far back for the quick release bracket to set in. Maybe the SATA port is just long on my MODE. Check on the fit of this before making it necessary to undo previous steps to access the screw holes. With the mounts attached to the MODE the screw holes on the PCB Cage would only line up with one end. Also the MODE blocked the center screw. The instructions show removing this screw but neglect to put it back. It actually says to remove the MODE from the mounts if you want to get at it. Attaching the mounts to the PCB Cage then screwing down the cage before securing the MODE should be the normal order of events. There's space for 6 screws in the MODE. There's space for 6 screws in the mounts. 4 screws were provided. 4 screws are shown used in the instructions. (31 Mar 2021, 22:24)

Outstanding!

The bit-district MODE mount for both Saturn and Dreamcast are excellent products. Two areas in particular are superior to the competition. 1) Independent light pipes for all 3 MODE LED's 2) Robust mechanism for each MODE button I also want to say that their customer service and support are top notch. Couldn't give this product a higher recommendation. (08 Nov 2020, 16:07)

Awesome kit!

This mount kit is very high quality and the installation wasn't too bad, either. The buttons and independent LEDs on the top of the mount are really sleek. Definitely a professional product! (06 Nov 2020, 16:40)
