3 out of 5 eggsCard is not user friendly

Pros: If you're going to use this card with 2TB and lower drives, then this might be the card for you.

Cons: Like previous reviewers have said; this card becomes rather unstable with 3TB or higher drives. No windows 10 support.

Other Thoughts: Do not buy this card if you frequently switch drives or SATA cables.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as Expected

Pros: Easy to install, straight forward setup and no third party software to use. It literally takes 2 seconds to install the software and your devices are there. Runs perfectly with windows 10 (just go to their website and download the software). Was expecting slow transfers due to the pci connection, but I average 100 MB/s for large video transfers.

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: I am thinking of getting a second card for more sata ports. I have not raided drives with this card.

1 out of 5 eggsRandom freezes/w Linux SW raid

Pros: cheap

Cons: random linux system freezes with this card used as a straight sata controller with linux software raid. this took a very long time to isolate. the system can run fine for a week+, then freeze. seen this with the 3.x kernel line as well as 4.x. removed this card from the system & plugged in the disks to the mobo sata controller and all is fine.
i can't recommend this card for a DIY linux NAS setup.

4 out of 5 eggsIt ran fine for 2 years and then it died.

Pros: I ordered it Sep. 13, 2014.
It was running fine for 2 years.
Reasonable price $37.99 when I bought it, now it's $3 cheaper.

Cons: It decided to die on Sep. 16, 2015.
Event ID: 9
Source: Si3124r5
The device, \Device\Scsi\Si312r51, did not respond within the timeout period.
Deducted 1 star b/c of it.

Other Thoughts: Is it just a coincidence that it died approximately 2 years of use?

5 out of 5 eggsI thought I had a problem, but just a new driver

Pros: Easy to install raid card, 2 extra SATA cables come with it in the box. Ability to add 4 more hard drives! Great customer support! A few hours after I emailed them, I got the CORRECT Driver link and a step by step email. I was like hum, but nothing shows up in Device Manger, but there it was, with an error, in the wrong area (why did it take hours to show up). Now with new driver, it was easy and so simple to get this working 100%.

Cons: When I put the card in and rebooted, nothing showed up in Device Manager, except the controller card. I rebooted, and still nothing. I thought I had a bad card, I came to newegg and it did not list my purchase for about 10 minutes, I was like WTH? I read the reviews and saw only a few people had problems and the company responded to the negative comments. So I went to their website, and downloaded a new driver, but still nothing in the Device Manager.

Other Thoughts: The instructions in the box are very complex, the email instructions were so easy! Why not put those simple instructions into the box, along with the link to the correct driver?

5 out of 5 eggsUsing as extra sata ports

Pros: Works as advertised for SATA passthrough. Not difficult to install, hasn't caused any problems so far.

Have NOT tried Raid, which is what a lot of people are probably buying this for.

Cons: I don't have any cons, other than the drivers are not super-intuitive. They work and an experienced PC enthusiast should have no problems.

1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't work

Pros: None

Cons: Doesn't work. Replaced existing two port SATA card to gain two more ports. New card was recognized along with the attached drives, but when attempting to format a new drive, card threw a large number of errors and failed. Swapped old card in, was able to format new drive.

Other Thoughts: Hopefully, someone will benefit from this (and other) reviews and avoid this card.

4 out of 5 eggsNice card - Needs Work

Pros: Nice card – for data pass through.
Clean install as non raid Win 7 Pro SP1went great.
Creating Raid 0 all went fine.

Cons: Problems start after deleting raid: couldn't boot into system drive unless I had the Syba card setup as a concatenated raid array. Deleting raid, in raid bios, you see physical drive listed left and reserved drive listed right. If you quick low level format (removes raid metadata front / end of drive), you see physical drive listed left and blank space right. If you try to boot into system, you will see “No Device Listed!” after the 3124 raid bios. Boot process stops before starting windows. Creating concatenated raid lets you boot easily into windows.

Vantec UGT ST310R 3114 Sata controller card - after deleting raid, then quick low level format, you see physical and logical drives listed in raid bios. You can then boot into system drive as non-raid pass through. Seems something is wrong with 3124 raid bios vs 3114 raid bios regarding booting into Windows after activating then deleting raid.

I read here how people are flashing the bios on the addon card. When I asked Syba how to do this, they respond flashing bios puts the card out of warranty. For this reason, I RMA'd the card to NewEgg with the request to replace it with a new card. The box I received the 1st card was crumpled, leading me to believe I received someone else's used problem. If nonraid pass through worked without raid setup, then the only way I can get this is by exchanging the card to get a card without raid activated.

Vantec card – delete raid – quick low level format – done!! Now you can boot as non raid into system. 3123 vs 3114 – you’d think the 3124 chipset would have 3114 features + new builds

Other Thoughts: Still would like to know about flashing this card dos / windows.
