This PCIe to PCI Adapter Card lets you use low profile PCI expansion cards in a server or desktop motherboard PCI Express slot. Compliant with PCI Express Specification 1.0a and PCI Specification 2.2, the adapter card connects through a PCIe 1x slot to provide a low profile PCI slot in its place. A spare full size bracket for PCI Express card is also included for use in larger desktop or server PCI Express slots.

A versatile solution, the adapter card converts PCIe to PCI or PCI-X; a built-on LP4 power connector links the card to the computer power supply, allowing you to install universal voltage PCI cards (3.3V/5V).The adapter card offers an economical solution that lets you extend the usability of older or extra PCI Bus cards in newer PCIe capable systems.

To ensure suitable installation in any low profile server or desktop computer, the PCIe/PCI adapter features an innovative bracket design that adapts and secures the low profile PCI or PCI-X card into the converted slot.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks as expected

Pros: Works.

Cons: I had to modify my chassis (cut into it) to make my card fit but that's not StarTech's fault.

Other Thoughts: I would've given this five stars because it works but a couple years back I ordered one and it was DOA. oh well.

1 out of 5 eggsPoor quality control

Pros: As advertised it is an adapter.

Cons: DOA on arrival, capacitor not soldered to board, I hadn't noticed it was missing initially and proceeded to install my HT Claro XT with an adapter for the support bracket. After plugging in the power and starting the system all I hear is a pop and now I have a dead $250 Claro, Thank you Startech.

1 out of 5 eggsDidn't work :(

Pros: Would be awesome, if it had more power options.

Cons: I tried to use this as a birdge between a PCI sound card and a PCI-e 1x on my motherboard. The bridge didn't have the power the keep it's self going when sound would be playing thru the card. Too bad, have to find PCI-e sound card now.

Other Thoughts: I hear it works well for RAID controllers?

5 out of 5 eggsInvisible to OS (that's a good thing)

Pros: Tested using a Promise TX4300 SATA card. The Promise card asserted it self with no problems on a P6T Motherboard while plugged in to this adapter. As expected, data transfer rates did not appear to be hampered by this adapter as the PCI slot is slower than a PCI Express 1x slot (just Google pci vs pcie x1)

Cons: Just like previous reviewer, bracket a bit tricky.

Other Thoughts: I can recommend this card if you need to sustain a PCI card you can't replace, on a motherboard without any available PCI slots. I imagine the only limitation you may run in to is if your PCI card will fit and be usable while on top of this card.

Note: Data transfer rates tested in standard AHCI mode (Non-RAID). Tests ran transferring data to identical hard drives. Initial test of a single 1G tif file gave heavy favor to the Promise card. A sustained test of an 8G folder of 19 large .tif files shifted favor to the Intel chipset, moving the data a mere 2% faster, I suspect the source hard drive had a significant impact.
