Whether you need more connections for your SATA hard drives, or you’re setting up a RAID array, Syba's SD-Sata-4P is ready to heed your call. Handling four SATA drives, they can each work independently for greater storage, or combined into a single RAID array to offer faster information transfer or more secure storage.

The connected SATA devices can be hard drives of varying sizes or optical drives such as CD-Roms and DVD-roms, to offer that extra bit of flexibility to the average user. It will certainly make a big impact on your storage needs.

5 out of 5 eggsSimple install, runs on Windows 10

Pros: Good for what it is: 4 SATA ports, offset in pairs at two different edges on the card. Runs in Windows 10 without issue. Comes with 2 SATA cables (red). This is a PCI card, not express, so it runs at SATA 1 spec

Cons: For traditional installations, The 90 deg index on the SATA port is such that a right angle cable will be facing upward. Also, two of the ports face out to the left which may lead to some cable management oddness.

Other Thoughts: This is likely a product for a bygone era that happens to still be on sale. SYBA went through a website revision it appears, and while up to date driver for the card exists, information about upgrading the BIOS to support RAID 5 is on an unattached page (another reviewer here mentioned the link). I needed this card to free up SATA ports on the motherboard and my graphics card blocks up my free PCI-Express slot, This card is spec'd at SATA-1, so it is ideal for my 2 DVD burners, and any low speed backup/media drives I want to install at later dates. So for me, this card is exactly what I needed and the price is not too bad for what it is.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat option for my CD/DVD drives

Pros: Easy install with Windows 10
I used this card on my unused PCI port to connect 2 DVD drives and thus saved my MOBO SATA ports for my SSDs.
The card has side and back slots for easy connections

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This is a great choice if you need to save your SATA 3 ports for HDD and SSD.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

Pros: None

Cons: On both Windows XP and Windows Vista in raid and non raid I could not get any drive to format. with this controller. Even tried an old 1.5Gb drive and it was a no go. Used 3 different drivers too.

Other Thoughts: It's on it's way back for a refund.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

We apologize for the issues you have experienced with this controller card.

This controller has been tested and verified to function within both Windows XP and Vista operating systems.

Try setting your onboard SATA configuration to AHCI. Also ensure that you are using the RAID drivers. Using the non-RAID drivers for this card will cause issues such as those you are experiencing.

Thank you for purchasing one of our products, and for leaving us your valuable feedback.

-Regards SYBA CST 07172015

5 out of 5 eggsWorking well.

Pros: Easy to install, allows me to add 4 more drives, speeds seem good.

According to the chip manufacturers website, with the new 5.5 bios it also supports RAID 5 and 10. I haven't tried that yet though.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: I was connecting my optical drive to this controller, so I couldn't use the included driver CD. Found drivers online at http://it.us.syba.com/support_download/download/73-0204-1.html

Extract the ZIP, right click the controller in device manager, click update drivers, locate the extracted files, done. EZ Peezy.

4 out of 5 eggsEasy Bios Configure

Pros: Easy setup.RAID 5 option via BIOS access, Works on XP & Win 7. Software Utility Monitor via desktop.

Cons: Linux and Clonezilla cannot see raid setup. Clonezilla sees raid as individual drives.

Other Thoughts: Clone via Windows access will see RAID setup. Use Acronis Image 2014 and was able to clone from HD to RAID 5 SSD.

5 out of 5 eggsExtra SATA ports

Pros: I've used this card for almost a year now and I have not had any issues with it. Windows recognized the device at first boot and installed the drivers for it. Not running raid so I wouldn't know its capabilities, just using it as extra ports for my DVD/BR drives.

Cons: Posts RAID configuration bios screen at startup every time the computer powers on.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat exspansion card!

Pros: "I needed 4 more sata ports for my home built NAS and this card works great. It is actually replacing an old sata300 I was using and the increase in speed performance is great. Very easy to install as well."

Cons: No noticable cons with this product.
