5 out of 5 eggsCheap and works great

Pros: Relays SMART Data from HDD's in external enclosures. Allows for much faster boot time than my old Sil3132 based controller.

Cons: none yet

Other Thoughts: Used with 2 Sans Digital TR4M four bay enclosures via 6ft eSATA cables->Sil3726 based port multipliers.

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid at all cost!

Pros: Works as port multiplier and recognizes four drives individually.

Cons: Manufacturer states that no cable can be connected to the card during boot up other wise it will not boot into Windows. I had this very problem. If I boot into Windows and then I connect the cable, it will see all the drives. Very inconvenient to have to unplug the cable every time.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

You should be able to connect an external HDD to this card during boot and not have any problems.

However, if you did not setup the BIOS boot priority correctly to select which Drive to boot first. The external HDD connected to this card might create a problem during boot up if it does not have an Operating System installed on it/not the drive you want to boot to.

When you contacted our technical support, he/she might took a short cut to fix your boot up problem. Please feel free to contact us again and we will walk you through the system BIOS setup.

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

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid at all cost!

Pros: Port multiplier does work after you install drives.

Cons: You can see the manufacturer's response in one of the reviews, you cannot have any devices attached during the boot up process. This kind of makes it very inconvenient to have to disconnect and reconnect the cable if the computer restarts.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

You would not want any devices attached to the card ONLY when your first installing the drivers for this card.

This card has no problem booting with drives attached. Perhaps you did not setup your BIOS correctly to be configured for your specific setup.

We apologize for any issues that you are having.

1 out of 5 eggsbad product

Pros: None

Cons: The card was supposed to handle port multiplier. Not so. Contacted Syba and their rep said that the MB needs that capability also. The specs do not indicate that fact. Wanted the poard to handle that problem since the esata ports on the MB do not handle that situation. Also the board only saw one of thetwo ports on my BlacX box.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

Please contact us again. This card does not require port multiplier on your motherboard. However, the enclosrue you connected to this card might requires extra port multiplier functions which our card lakes.

If your system can only see one port on our card, the card is not installed correctly (or, error free) Make sure the driver you installed matches the Windows version that you have.

Before you contact us again, please do the following:
1. Find the web link to your enclosure and forward to our technical support
2. Give us the Windows version
3. Test the enclosure with just one HD in it
4. If there is a switch to turn on/off multiple HD, turn it to single HD mode. Make sure our card works with your enclosure in single HD mode
5. Install our card in a different PCI-e slot

4 out of 5 eggsWorks flawlessly

Pros: Two extra eSATA ports, are very handy to have, and they work flawlessly. Adds less than two seconds to boot process, with or without a device present.

Cons: The product gets four stars for the overly technically instruction pamphlet scaring the daylights out of me.

Other Thoughts: When I first plugged this card in, the OS and BIOS saw nothing. However after I downloaded the 64 bit driver, the card was immediately recognized, and works flawlessly. If you have Win 7 64bit OS, just toss the instructions, plug it into PCI Express socket, download and load the latest drivers, and presto two more eSATA ports.

1 out of 5 eggsInfinite boot loop

Pros: None

Cons: Plugged into M/B ... connected external drive ... PC goes into a continuous reboot loop.
Tech service no help ... says external drive should not be powered during boot ...
Now is that a solution?.

Other Thoughts: Bad card ... or dumb tech ... not sure which or both.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

Thank you for purchasing our SYBA products. Please do not connect any device during the boot. This might cause confusion to the motherboard BIOS. We always try to provide the most reliable products to our customers and all products come with at least 1-year warranty. If you have more product related questions, please contact us at support@sybausa.com. We are eager to assist you in any way possible and look forward to hearing from you soon.
