1 out of 5 eggs lousy garbage from SD 08/03/2013

This review is from: Mediasonic ProBox HP1-SS3 PCI-Express 2.0 x1 SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Controller Card

Pros:

It was free after rebate. minus the tax and stamp

Cons:

This garbage operates at gen 1. no wonder it was free. Installed drivers rebooted and voila its slower than the worst-buy card I bought which is way faster 90-140 MB/s. this particular card maxes out at 32 MB/s!!! seriously!?!

My usb 2 is faster than that! Sadly the bios is 0.95 I cant even get 0.951 on the card it requires dos, my hp wont let me boot to usb key and i dont feel like wasting a whole cdr just to get dos running. on top of that i cant get cmd prompt or anything else to do the .bat file specifies.

So this has got to be the worst product Ive ever purchased for free. So frustrated with the mis-advertising ugh. Sata revision 3 yeah right. more like revision 0.5.

So please do not buy this cr_p really hate the lack of support for this cr_p. real big fail on mediasonics end.

Other Thoughts:

Since it was free I will probably post a youtube video of me ranting how bad this card is.. really not worth it being free. I hope they discontinue this particular card.
