5 out of 5 eggsGreat price. Great function.

Pros: I needed a way to interface my xbox 360 motherboard to the pc without shelling out more money for the Xecuter pro.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I've had issues with the drivers and having jungleflasher recognizing the drive via the controller but after tinkering, dseo13b usually sets things right. It's a hassle, sure, but not the fault of the VIA controller.

1 out of 5 eggsWon't boot either a CD or HD

Pros: E-sata

Cons: No Boot ROM not Bootable
Now I'm stuck with three of these !

Other Thoughts: It could have been a nice card with a Boot ROM. What were they thinking?

Manufacturer Response:

Dear customer,

This card was originally designed for data storage purposes only.

In order to boot from it, the card needs to be integrated with a BIOS.

We have many cards that are capable of booting up. Please search "SYBA controller Card" on neweggs.com for more details.

Again, we are sorry if it was not clear enough to you that this card is not bootable in the products description. We will add a warning to the description to avoid any future confusion.

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

SYBA offers on-line RMA requests that can be easily filled out and submitted for a quick exchange. It is SYBA's policy to answer all customer inquiries within 24 hours (M-F)

1 out of 5 eggsBroke after a year

Pros: It worked once or twice

Cons: Used it maybe a few times for Xbox 360 purposes throughout the year. Went to use it one day and it no longer worked. Past return period so I just threw it away.

Other Thoughts: My Rosewill 6421 has been going strong for 4 years now, buy that instead.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear customer,

We accept customer returns directly. Please contact us before you threw it away. The product maybe still under the manufacturers' warranty.

Another thing, if the item worked before, it might be still working. Chances are the driver or connectors need to be re install/checked. If the card is always in your system, it should not go bad unless you have taken it out of your system and reinserted it into the PCI slot after a year. If that is the case, reinstall the driver. If you have lost your driver, you may download the lastest driver from our website

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, the user 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)

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Worked great for flashing my Xbox's disc drive, awesome that it has plug and play features

Cons: The cover for the end with the eSata slot would not fit into my case, so I ended up having to unscrew the cover and fit it into a pci slot, blocking the eSata slot.

3 out of 5 eggsUpdate after I Got a Replacement

Pros: Replacement works well on Windows 7. One of the least expensive cards on the market. Adds 2 SATA and 2 IDE ports. Installation of drivers was easy. Newegg provides fast shipping. SYBA customer service was helpful.

Cons: First one would not boot even as a non-boot drive. 2nd one did not fit into PCI socet without my adjusting the bracket.

Other Thoughts: This is a update from my previous 1-star review. Once you get a non-defective one, it works as well as a card that was three times the price. Although its only SATA 1, it was as fast as the much more expensive SATA II PCI card due to the PCI bottle neck.

1 out of 5 eggsPoison Pill for Your Computer

Pros: It does not cost much and it won't kill you.

Cons: If you want to screw up your computer & like to spend a few hours installing it, trying to make it work & uninstalling & cleaning your registry -- this is the product for you! Didn't work on my Win7 or Vista even with the latest drivers. OS wont boot after drivers are installed. Does not recognize drive in bios. Manufacturer & Newegg should be ashaimed. Too bad I couldn't give it less than 1 star!

Other Thoughts: Save your time and money! Not even worth returning.

1 out of 5 eggsIntermittent BSOD on Windows 7 64-bit

Pros: It was cheap so I gave it a shot to make up for lack of IDE on my new motherboard. Didn't use any raid options, just straight out of the box. It was worth a shot.

Cons: Doesn't work on Windows 7 64-bit.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

Thank you for purchasing our SYBA products. We are sorry to hear that the product has stopped functioning as it should be. please try to reinstall the drive. here is the link for you to download the drive: http://sybausa.com/resource/SY-VIA6421-3S1P/VIA_V-RAID_SoftwarePackage_V5.zip. If it still dosen't work, it just maybe the card is defective. Which means it was installed correctly but just the card were defective. I would like to point out that we can also issue RMA returns. We always try to provide the most reliable products to our customers and all products come with at least 1-year warranty. So please don't hesitate to contact us at support@sybausa.com for replacement or question.

Regards, Syba Customer Service AA 100411
