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.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks...if you put in some effort

Pros: Using this card in a older P4 Mobo running WHS (the older version, not 2011). I had no PCIe slots, only PCI. Mobo recognized the card right away, WHS not so much.

Cons: Requires a BIOS update to either the NON-RAID BIOS, if you do not want to run an array. OR the RAID BIOS to run one of the many RAID version that the card supports.

Other Thoughts: Go the the Silicon Image website and download the 6.6 bios update. As others have said, flash either the "r" version for RAID or the non-"r" version for no RAID. Reboot and update your drivers according to the setup you intend to run.
I am having issues with the 2TB file limit in WHS, but that is a problem with the OS, not the card.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for home!

Pros: Great bang for your buck! 4 SataII connections, RAID5 available, PCI connection, Small form factor, driver on CD works with WIN VISTA or 7.

Cons: Manufacture's site states card has a "Hardware RAID Array Maximum size: 2.3TB; Except for JBOD mode."

Other Thoughts: I use this card with WinVista as a peer to peer storage solution. I have 3 2TB drives in RAID5. I don't have the restriction listed above, which is NICE. Great card for the $, per my buddy it will tax your CPU for file usage as it doesn't have its own brains. I store music, files, pictures on mine, which saves the family $ on external backup drives.

5 out of 5 eggsDecent replacement SATA controller, does RAID too

Pros: Cheap, PCI, works as a replacement for controller on a failing mobo.

Comes with 2x SATA II cables... You might expect 4, but I expected none so it's a pro.

Configures easily.

Cons: the bracket was a little bent coming out of the box.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks

Pros: Plugs in and is recognized w/o any problems.

Cons: To get the BIOS to recognize any drives for booting purposes you must set up a RAID/Concatenation/etc setup.

Other Thoughts: Have an older Asus A7V8X-LA board which has only SATA1 and cannot connect to my SATA2+ devices. This allowed me to connect all 3 SATA devices and boot Vista off of a 320Gb WD SATA2 drive set as a single drive concatenation in the card's BIOS.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great!!

Pros: Been running perfectly since around early September 2013. MY Lian Li full tower case consist of 8 HDD's running in JBOD. Worked perfectly on Win XP Pro x32 on a ASRock 775Dual-880Pro LGA 775 VIA PT880 PRO mobo and nothing changed when I went to Win 7 Pro x64 using the Intel DH87MC mobo.

Cons: None!! I read some of the negative reviews but it worked flawlessly on a 8 year old, 2005 ASRock mobo and flawlessly when I upgraded to the 2013 Intel DH87MC mobo. Also, I read 1 negative saying it's only a SATA ll. SYBA says that on their product description. If something as simple as this is missed then I have to conclude, most likely, the majority of the negative reviews are nothing but operator error. When all else fails, read the directions.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't hesitate for a second about buying another of these SATA cards and sometime later in the year, I probably will.

1 out of 5 eggsIf you use Windows, DO NOT BUY THIS!

Pros: It is able to read the drives at the BIOS level.

Cons: Does not work.
Causes DPC_watchdog_violation at all levels of raid (0,1,5,10)

Other Thoughts: The card creates the RAID and it presents the VDs to Windows, you can format them and partition them correctly but then after 5-10 minutes, you WILL get a DPC_Watchdog_violation error.

I have tried everything and called the support help desk and they couldn't solve it either.

Please, don't buy this.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

Perhaps the drivers were not installed properly onto the system.

Please note that this device uses the Windows 7 drivers to operate in a Windows 8 environment.

Also check that your motherboard/BIOS is up-to-date and that any system updates have been applied.

This card has been tested and verified to function in Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7/8.

Thank you for purchasing one of our products, and for leaving us your valuable feedback.

Please feel free to contact us @ sybausa.com if you require further assistance.

5 out of 5 eggsworks perfect

Pros: Was very easy to install. And breathed new life into an old 32 bit P4, that had been sitting on the floor of my garage for 7 years, with a dead mouse inside.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I used this card in my 2000 vintage 32 bit Gateway 700 XL, P4 2.3 ghz with 1GB of RAMBUS mem. I configured 1, 320GB 2.5 and one 500GB 2.5, in a RAID 0 configuration for a grand total on 600 GB. Installing 32 bit Windows 7 was a breeze and went a lot faster then it does with the IDE drives this 13 year old box came with. I low level formatted both drives with the RAID utility, then set up my
RAID 0 array. Folks who say they are having problems, must not know what they are doing. I'm cursing along at 32 bit speed, playing all my old computer games, that I could not play after I made the move to 64 bit, so many years ago.. Best $40 I've spent in a while.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid device

Pros: Price, dual channel, internal/external connectivity.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Used in a simple in house media server JBOD config. I prefer s/w RAID since I'm a Linux user and a system software dev. :) I can't comment on the RAID facilities. The cards operated without fault for a few months now.
