2 out of 5 eggsmissing driver

Pros: nicely build

Cons: well, i'm building an HTPC with Openelec and it seem that there is no driver available for Openelec to recognize my sata controller...too bad :(

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

Sorry for not providing a Openlec driver to our Linux community at this current time. However, this doesn't mean that we will not in the future. As soon as we can get a hold of a driver, we will upload it to our product driver download page for all to retrieve.

Please check SYBA website from time to time for new driver updates.

Our technical support team is available to help 9am-5pm M-F. Feel free to contact us during those business hours at support@sybausa.com

We are more than happy to provide all of our customers with a prompt exchange 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)

Thank you for purchasing one of our products, and for leaving us your valuable feedback. We value all positive and negative feedback.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent low profile card

Pros: Recognized RHEL 5, RHEL 6 and multiple Fedora Linux distros with no issues. The card came with the low profile bracket attached (and no full height bracket) which was great. Inexpensively priced.

Cons: PCB is the full height of the low profile bracket and the SATA ports are along the top. This means that if you are using this card in a 2U you will HAVE to use the 90 degree angled SATA cables.

Other Thoughts: It's the standard Silicon Image controller that uses the sata_sil Linux driver, hard to go wrong.

1 out of 5 eggsSybase SD-LP-PEX2IR

Pros: The card looks nice.

Cons: I just got this to put into an APEVIA X-FIT-100 and what do you know, it doesn't fit. I thought this may work, but the card dimensions need to be added to the descriptions. This one is...
L-69.45mm with the bracket on
W- about 11mm on the tallest capacitor
H -60 mm not including the part that goes into the slot. But once installed it will be 60 mm from the surface of the board connector to the top edge.

The connectors are on the top which makes this an even worst card for this case. If they were facing the rear edge (front) of the computer you could still close the top and use it, but with the connectors on the top, there's no room left for any cables to be plugged in.

3 out of 5 eggsDoesn't Fit Standard Cases

Pros: Cheap: Worked well right after I installed the driver

Cons: Doesn't fit normal case:

Other Thoughts: I simply bent the metal vertically to allow it to fit in my case. Not screw-ed in though

1 out of 5 eggsDoes not match picture

Pros: None

Cons: I specifically purchased this card because it did not take up the full height of a 2U bracket and had enough clearance to plug a SATA cable into the [poorly placed] top connectors.

The card pictured is ~1.5" tall and appears to allow enough clearance for a low profile SATA cable in a 2U case (card is about 2/3rds the height of the bracket). The card I received is 2.5" tall and does not allow any clearance to plug in a cable. Comparing the card received to the card in the picture, I see that they are different cards with the same model number.

3 out of 5 eggsController Card

Pros: Good SATA card, 2 ports, works well

Cons: Sadly only has low profile bracket with no option of normal bracket. Had to contact manufacturer, but they do not sell normal bracket separately.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Cheap, installation was easy and works just fine with Vista 64 bits. delivery excellent.

Cons: Does not have a exchangeable mounting bracket, I have to remove and leave the card with no support from case. not made for full format cases.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you check the posted picture to decide the size of the bracket, ad does not specified size other than PCI express.

1 out of 5 eggsCustomer service???

Pros: None as I'm unable to install it.

Cons: Should have read the reviews first. Assumed it would come with both sized brackets but it didn't. Have sent two e-mails to customer service over a week period without any response.

2 out of 5 eggsNo full height bracket included

Pros: Well, it works.

Cons: I asumed there would be both full height and low profile brackets included - I was wrong. It is only for low-profile cases.
Also, do note that this chip fits two SATA-II ports onto just one PCI-E 1.0 lane. That is 2 x 300MB/s interfaces on a 250MB/s Pci-E lane.

Other Thoughts: Note that Pci-e 1.0 is 500MB/s full-duplex - 250MB/s each direction.

3 out of 5 eggsIt works, but it's slow

Pros: I needed a port multiplier, and it was the least expensive one that I could find. It does the job.

Cons: It maxes out at about 135MB/s total throughput. Each of the 2 physical connectors tested up to 85MB/s.

This is less than half of the claimed PCIe-x1 supported rate of 2.5Gb/s (312.5MB/s) and barely more than a third of the claimed SATA II 3Gb/s (375MB/s).

Every manufacturer lies about the supported transfer rates, so don't let this shock you.

Other Thoughts: I did not test the RAID capabilities of this card.
