PCI Express to PCI Card


Add four external I/O expansion card slots to a desktop or laptop computer system.''s PCI Express to PCI Expansion Chassis is a quick and simple solution to I/O expandability on almost any PCI Express (PCIe) enabled system. Adding external PCI slots to a server/workstation or laptop, this cost-effective and time-saving method of simply adding additional PCI cards to a server/workstation or providing a platform to be able to swap PCI add-in cards between a mobile and desktop setup is the optimal method of maximizing the I/O capabilities of new or existing systems.

The external expansion chassis adds four PCI slots (32-bit/33MHz) to the host computer system, through a single PCI Express connection. Providing total bandwidth of up to 250MBps from the x1 PCIe host controller card, which allows the host computer to function as though the cards in the expansion chassis were connected directly to the motherboard.

Convert a single PCI Express slot to four additional external PCI slots without any driver or software installation required

External expansion enclosure simplifies swapping PCI cards, without ever having to move or take apart the main desktop/server

Backed by a 1 year warranty and free lifetime technical support

3 out of 5 eggsSome Assembly Required

Pros: We used this in one of our production environments where we needed the extra PCI slots, that were not specc'd with the PC. after a bit of work it worked fine, no IRQ errors. it was probably the easiest solution in the long run, has its own external power supply, so as long as it is powered up before the PC, your good as gold.

Cons: We did not order through Newegg, due to corporate restrictions. Mistake one.

We are uncertain if it was through shipping or shoddy worksmanship, but the PCIe board was damaged when it arrived (Packaged fairly well.) I would recommend being fairly competant at soldering, because the resistors are incredibly small and at $450~ its a huge mistake if you screw up.

On top of the damaged PCIe board, the enclosure had the internal board tossing around with all of the screws to hold it in place. NO ASSEMBLY. Huge cut into time having to remount the board on something that should have come from factory pre-made.

We ordered a PCI enclosure, not a do it yourself Radio Shack project.

Other Thoughts: We were down to the wire on time. If that hadn't been such an issue the assembly would have been less of a problem. However Startech could really use some Quality Control on these things, its a dissappoint to open the box up and start off with damaged goods followed by a box of parts.
