2 out of 5 eggsWorks, but...

Pros: It worked, at first. The SATA part seems to work OK.

Cons: Worked for almost 3 months. Now the USB connector is loose. Wiggling the USB connector causes it to become connected, then disconnected. Beware.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks on PowerEdge R720!

Pros: This is the only USB 3.0 card that I've ever seen to work on a PowerEdge R720. All the other cards require a 4-port power connector to be plugged into the board, but this one does not, so it makes it easy to install in servers where there are no power cables available.

There are several different device drivers on the CD. The manual that comes with the card tells you exactly which one to use. It is OK to install the driver after installing the hardware.

Works out of the box in Linux (kernel needs CONFIG_USB_XHCI_HCD enabled).

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: The card provides a USB 3.0 root hub. The eSATA connector is basically a USB->SATA adapter built-in to the card, so it shows up as a USB 3.0 device.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as advertised

Pros: Works as advertised! Powers my backup drive, with no issues. And allows me to retain my USB 3.0, on my 4 year old mobo :)

Cons: NONE!

Other Thoughts: Works for what i need, i am NOT trying to use it for booting, as i already know th issues with booting from a pci card, from reading reviews about actual pci SSD's. It would only make sense that trying to hook a ssd through a sata pci card, would only yield the same results unless stated for those mobos that do it properly. Sorry to all the folks that hasnt read information stating so.

Im powering a backup drive and ran out of space on my mobo, this was a plug and play experience, thanx Syba!

1 out of 5 eggsOnly USB3 works

Pros: Would be such a sweet upgrade option if it worked. USB 3 works.

Cons: SATA6 controller isn't even seen by OS. SYBA has no drivers on the web site for the SATA controller. Just the USB. No HDD/SSD is seen by the OS when plugged in to internal SATA plug. Jumpers are set to 2-3 for internal. The driver CD that came with it is a joke. It's a disk that has drivers for, what looks like, every single SYBA product made. They're all in folders that are not labeled in any logical way. Just randomly labeled folders. How hard is it to make a CD for each product. Talk about poor product execution.

Other Thoughts: Would be such a sweet upgrade option if it worked. Another manufacturer needs to step up and make a proper 1xPCIe card with 1xSATA6 and 1xUSB3

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

From what you have described, the eSATA port might be defective on this card. If it is correctly jumpered to 2-3, it should certainly read your drives.

Please contact us directly to arrange an exchange for you.

We are more than willing to provide all of our customers with prompt exchanges whenever a product becomes defective.

SYBA offers an on-line RMA form. Users can easily fill out the form and submit it for a quick RMA return and exchange. It is SYBA's policy to answer all customer inquiries within 24 hours (M-F)

1 out of 5 eggsVery Unfortunate

Pros: Installs easily. Drivers readily available via the disc that came with it and on the website.

Cons: Refuses to acknowledge my hard drive connected to the SATA port, even though my jumpers are connected correctly. Since installing the driver's, my computer boots slower than back when I had a hdd (currently boot from an ssd), and it runs painfully slow. I've since reverted back to an image from before installing it and everything's fine, aside from the card not operating.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear customer,

Please contact SYBA directly for additional support. In the mean time, please try the follwing:

1. Test the card in a different PCI-e slot.
2. Re-install the driver. Remove the current driver. Reboot the system and re-install the driver. Please, do not let Windows choose the driver for you. Manually find the driver on the driver CD bundled with the card or download the driver on our website.
3. Test all 3 ports

We are more than willing to provide all of our customers with prompt exchanges whenever a product becomes defective.

We are truly sorry for any inconvenience caused to you. We stride in our customers' satisfaction.

1 out of 5 eggseSata Not So Good

Pros: USB 3.0 works in winxp and win7.

Cons: eSata supposed to have port multiplier, it does not work as such. Only sees one harddrive. Used updated drivers but no luck.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear customer,

This card does not support the port multiplier function. Perhaps the chipset has this feature, but this card does not utilize such function.

Please e-mail us at support@sybausa.com, and tell us where you saw this Port Multiplier description. Whether it was on our website or on Newegg's product page. We need to correct it.

We are truly sorry for any inconvenience caused to you. Our customers satisfaction is our priority.

3 out of 5 eggsCould be a Lot Better

Pros: The SY-PX50043 Fits in my PCI-e 1X slot, compact unit, Has 1 external eSAtA and one internal SATA controlled by jumpers. Has a USB3 port which when connected to a USB3 external Drive - Seagate Go Flex 2TB Disk; reached and maintained a110 MB/sec data transfer speed when copying my 900GB of videos..it still took some time to copy them. "my Anti Virus software was off"

Cons: Sata or eSATA is not so good - reached only 24 mb/sec when connected to exteral drive w eSATA cable - this is less that a SI3132 chipped dual port Rosewill card which averages about 75 to 50 mb /sec. Attached unit is a WD green 2 Tb drive at Sata 2.0 speeds.
As I needed a USB3 device in my computer for USB3 support the Rosewill card had to come out.
Suspect that the drivers for the chip are the problem I used the shipping DVD install program on my system which is Vista 64bit. Didn't check out the internal sata as it was late but as this is a shared port using the same silicon chip and driver it most likely will be the same - I did try another cable but no difference in fact the eSATA connector on the card required me to trim off the plastic sheath of the connector so as to connect to the card. This will work for USB3 but as others have mentioned upgrade the MB using the same CPU if you can do that would be a better option my case its not - a dual Xeon 5670 CPU MB

Other Thoughts: Also issues w USB2.0 - specific devices would not connect for example WD 1 TB My book. The USB3.0 Seagate drive would connect. The USB3.o cable from the Seagate would connect to the WD 1TB drive - but If I used another USB3 cable from local store then it would only connect to USB3 devices not any USB2 devices. This was especially noticed when doing hot connects to USB devices when powered up. Rebooting was a fix but that is not what USB is about.
This is supposed to be a SATA 6db connection and I am not sure that it can do that either. Again this is a driver issue or worst case bad silicon. May want to reinstall the si3132 card and connect a eSATA to USB3 option which of course doesn't exist yet... oh well I can dream!!!
But I am hoping that a newer driver can fix this as I dont want to go to Win7 to fix it.

3 out of 5 eggsNot as advertised

Pros: USB 3 works. Have a XCHI USB 3 port.

Cons: Sata 3 does not. I tried every driver and firmware update. Sata 3 SSD drive connected to the internal port shows up as a USB drive and benchmarks 50mbs less than when connected to the Sata 2 motherboard port using the Sisoft SANDRA file system benchmark.

Other Thoughts: Cheap USB 3 upgrade and I guess you could use the internal (Sata 3 really a USB 3 to sata) port for another hard drive. Hard drives run as fast as internal drives when connected to a USB 3 port. Lucky to get 45 mbs from an external hard drive connected to a USB 2 port.
