4 out of 5 eggsJBOD card Raid stuff

Pros: When you get it to work, it works exactly as intented. Got my JBOB up, but not without some efforts. I came close to just walk on it with anger. Than I got it to work.

I feel very happy about the product now

Cons: Documentation is terrible.
Installing drivers from a mini CD is the worst format they could think. Not a single optic driver out of 3 would take it. Which could mean the problem was faulty disk to begin with.

Driver from their site are manual installationonly, No easy setup. They would let you downlaod 3 of them, but only one worked.

Their manual will misslead you into trying to instal the wrong driver if you aim a JBOD first. Their raid 5 driver will let you do everytihng.

4 out of 5 eggsSYBA PCI SATA2 SI3124 Controller SY-PCI40010

Pros: PCI, SATA 2, 4 ports, works

Cons: Install Instructions, sourcing latest firmware and flash utility may require some effort

Other Thoughts: I used this card to replace a very similar SYBA PCI SATA2 SI3124 Controller SD-SATA2-2E2I that had 2 of the ports external and developed an I/O fault after 4 years 24x7 in service.

I think this is a good SATA2 controller for adding SATA devices to an older PCI bus system. I have not used any of the SI3124-based controllers for RAID application.

The card ships with the RAID BIOS 6.3.18. To use for a non-RAID application, you must install the card, boot from a temporary source, and run the flash utility UPDFLASH.EXE to change to the non-RAID BIOS b6600.bin.

Command line: updflash b6600.bin

Best I know, the latest SI3124 firmwares are:
6600.bin, partial BIOS for integrating with system BIOS
b6600.bin, non-RAID BIOS
r6600.bin, RAID BIOS (ships with older BIOS 6318)

After updating the BIOS, connect the SATA devices, your HDD LED activity light, and boot the system. I already had the desired Win7 x86 SI3124.sys device driver installed in Windows, so I was back in business.

If installing the OS or adding to an existing OS, you will need to slip stream/present the device driver file set at boot time to install the driver so that the system can use the new device to proceed (particularly if the system/OS drive is to be controlled by the new controller card).

BIOS and device driver versions must be compatible. Search online for sources... SYBA, Silicon Image, IOCrest?, or a trusted third party.

If this card is replacing the system/PC drive controller, you may need to configure the system BIOS to boot from the 'option ROM' or similar. Investigate your system BIOS FIRST to be sure the system is prepared to boot from the add-in card, not from the MB controller.

Enjoy!

5 out of 5 eggsThanks

Pros: Submitted a review regarding a concern about these cards in March this year. The manufacturer was kind enough to promptly respond with their apologies as well as the method of resolving the issue. Two faulty cards were returned to the manufacturer and a week later replacements were in hand, with out of pocket limited to shipping costs. Thanks to Newegg for carrying concerned vendors and the SYBA staff for outstanding customer service.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsJBOD. Affordable, installation was simple.

Pros: Affordable, installation was simple. Windows automatically downloaded and installed drivers. This is perfect for JBOD applications.

Cons: Software based RAID, terrible idea if you want business level performance.

Other Thoughts: I set it up as JBOD and allowed the OS to manage RAID.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Fast and reliable - works as advertised, and easy to manage. Run drives without any special setup as is, and RAID setup is really easy to do when you want it

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsKnow the product before you order

Pros: I e-mailed SYBA if this card supports arrays larger than 3TB - it does not, which is to be expected from a PCI card, but they responded within hours to my e-mail, which earns them the 5 eggs.

Cons: PCI is old tech...

5 out of 5 eggs"IT WORK 4 ME" - SYBA SY-PCI40010

Pros: Nice to have when you don't have anymore more pci express slots.

Cons: None So Far Only Had It A Day Now.

Other Thoughts: I'm Not Using It For RAID.

I ran out of SATA ports I needed two more SATA ports so I'm only using two of the ports to run my two DVD drives.

My system I'm using is: Windows 7 64-bit. I did have to use the disk that came with it in order to get the drivers it did not recognize the card.

1 out of 5 eggsTRASH!

Pros: NONE

Cons: Card does not work. I plugged in four 2TB drives. Raided them according to the instructions. The raid shows up for about 5 minutes after my PC boots and then disappears. I contacted Syba and they would only exchange it. Refused to refund. Card does not work!

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

We are sorry to hear of the inconvenience that this card has caused you.

Perhaps the card was not installed onto the system properly.

Try manually installing the updated drivers and updating your motherboard/BIOS.

For any other help please contact Syba support.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Price, number of ports, SATA2, PCI interface, supports RAID 10 which is nice and not something you often see on cards of this price.

Cons: RAID-5 performance (but this applies to all consumer boards) is terrible. File copy speed is 10mb sec. When Raid-1 or anything but raid-5 speed is 30-40 mb sec at minimum.
Chipset on motherboard gave same results so this isn't a fault of the board,rather limitation of consumer hardware.

Other Thoughts: The hardware limit of creating a 2.3TB array is wrong. I created a 4TB raid-5 and Raid-10 array with zero problems. I used the GPT partition scheme under Windows server 03.

3 out of 5 eggsNow what?

Pros: For non-raid use, data storage only, these cards are an easy install and perform reasonably well for a PCI interface controller.

Cons: Bought six of these to install in four systems with two held as spares. When a channel on one of the cards went south in about eight months, no big deal, it was replaced with a spare and the system was up and running in a few hours. But when a second card lost a channel two months later, the honeymoon was over.

Other Thoughts: In windowed cases, these cards allow SATA cables to be twisted in double helix and organized in tidy bundles for a clean look on one side of the card.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

We are sorry to hear that the ports for these cards went out.

If you are looking for a standard controller card we do offer many PCIe cards that allow for four connected drives and up.

We do offer an RMA for this device.
