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.

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
