1 out of 5 eggsBoot up failure. Crash.

This review is from: SYBA SY-PEX40039 SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Controller Card

Pros: None.

Cons: I am using a MSI AM1I Motherboard. The BIOS recognizes devices that are connected to the SATA ports on the card, but Windows 7 won't boot when any device is connected to either SATA port on the card. When I successfully boot Windows 7 with no devices connected to either SATA port on the card, and then connect a device to one of the SATA ports on the card, Windows 7 crashes.

Pros: -worked right away, even before installing the drivers
- 2 more SATA ports
- great price

Cons: -not getting SATA III speeds

Other Thoughts: I got this to get more out of my 850EVO SSD which was used in a SATA II port, I saw no in improvement it actually takes a few seconds longer to boot, Random read and writes are pretty much the same two.I'm a little disappointed but i didn't expect a great improvement. on the up side i got 2 more SATA ports

Please note that when installing the card your OS may automatically install generic device drivers. While these will allow the card to function they will not allow you to utilize the card at SATAIII speeds.

This review is from: SYBA SY-PEX40039 SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Controller Card

Pros: - Low Profile Bracket (Not listed on package)
- Fairly cheap price

Cons: - No ESXi 5.5 passthrough compatibility

Other Thoughts: I was looking to give one of my esxi 5.5 virtual machines Direct IO access to a hard drive and a DVD drive. Decided to try out this card as it is cheap compared to anything on the esxi HCL.

I could enable pass through on the card, but in a Win7x64 VM, the driver would fail to start (Code 10).

I bought the card knowing that anything not on the HCL had a fairly high chance of not being able to pass through, but I installed the community drivers and have my virtual machine and DVD drive running on the card without Direct IO.

Came with a low profile bracket even though the package doesn't list it.

3 out of 5 eggsNow I know why I got one for free...

This review is from: SYBA SY-PEX40039 SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Controller Card

Pros: It was free!
Works in an older computer.
Added two ports to a computer I don't care about.
I can re-gift it because I am a terrible person!

Cons: Causes windows to crash (randomly) if you have more than one SATA/PCIE card installed in your system.
Doesn't play nice with any RAID hardware (mobo/pcie controller), including a RAID controller made by the same company.
Picture on the box shows an ESATA port, yet no such port was to be found (momentarily got my hopes up, although the Newegg profile shows no E-Sata).

Other Thoughts: Cheap cr*p Newegg is giving away to regain shelf-space.
+ 3 eggs because it was free.
-2 eggs because of the misleading picture on the box.

3 out of 5 eggsWill not work if you have onboard RAID0

This review is from: SYBA SY-PEX40039 SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Controller Card

Pros: The card is faster then SATA2.
Tops out at 388MB/s on X58 E758 PCIe2.0 x8 port
It is bootable, and will boot your SSD to Windows

Cons: Works on 16x slot, not so good on x4 slot slower

3 Days trying figure this out.
Will not work if you have a RAID on your system,
No I do not mean the card does not RAID, it's not a raid card I know that, What I mean is:
I have a RAID0 with 4 WD Blacks on my X58 onboard ICH10R ports that works great without this card being present., If I have a drive plugged into this card my RAID disappears in BIOS, In fact I cannot configure my ICH10R if I have a drive hooked into this card. It BIOS configuration for ICH10R is gone.

Also this will put load on your CPU, I'm using an i7 920 @ 3.6GHZ and when benchmark shoes 2.3% CPU usage vs my onboard less then 1%, not a big deal, and is expected.

Other Thoughts: Works just fine in AHCI mode, or in RAID Mode as long as you dont have a RAID on your system. It will cancel your raid.

Seems like a firmware needs updated to separate this from the Motherboard BIOS.

My System is
EVGA X58 E758 motherboard
RAID0 x 4 WD Blacks on the ICH10R
Using the latest version 83 BIOS

Like I said the card works OK, not great, could be my motherboard slowing the card down, that's expected.

I would much rather just ugrade my platform to X99,
but that's expensive.

1 out of 5 eggsUseless

This review is from: SYBA SY-PEX40039 SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Controller Card

Pros: None

Cons: This was purchased to operate in a legacy Windows 2000 machine. The Newegg page and the Syba page claim that it works on Windows 2000. Yet there were no drivers on the supplied installation disk, none on the Syba (IOCrest) website, and none in Windows 2000 SP4. When I emailed product support, I was told "For systems earlier than Windows Server 2003 the generic device drivers of Windows will need to be installed." When I asked where such drivers are to be found and what their names are, I received no response.

Other Thoughts: If Syba sales material is incorrect on this product, then ...

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

We apologize for your dissatisfaction with this controller card.

Please note that Generic Device drivers are supplied and automatically installed by Windows OS.

You will need to navigate to your Device Manager, locate the device, and have the system automatically search for and install the latest drivers for your OS.

5 out of 5 eggsNo Problems

This review is from: SYBA SY-PEX40039 SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Controller Card

Pros: Price

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I've owned two of these for over a year now running 24/7. I have yet to have an issue. I can't speak much to the speed other than to say that my 7200 RPM drives are running at the same speed as the on board SATA.

Great value. Would by again.

2 out of 5 eggsIntermittant problems

This review is from: SYBA SY-PEX40039 SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Controller Card

Pros: Price per sata port was good. Speed is OK, considering it uses an v2 x1 PCIe slot.

Cons: It took a couple tries to get it to sync at PCIe v2 speeds. There are other weird stability or compatibility problems.

Other Thoughts: I purchased one of these from Newegg and a second from a different online store. They caused intermittant problems mounting disks..

I bought two of these to get extra ports for raid using btrfs. Putting either of the cards into my system causes intermittent filesystem mounting failures at boot time. The cards cause all ahci controllers in the system to misbehave, not just the one on the card. When I remove the cards, the other ahci devices work fine again. Also, changing the bios to NOT use ahci allows the motherboard controllers to work, but anything plugged into the sata cards are still flakey. Also, the cards don't work with my optical drives.
These problems happened when one or both of the cards were plugged in.

Because of the intermittent nature of the problem, it took a few days to narrow the problem down to these cards.

Overall, a dissapointing purchase.

linux ubuntu 14.04, kernels 3.13 & 3.16
