3 out of 5 eggs Works.......but then it doesn't 12/24/2013

This review is from: SYBA SI-PEX40064 PCI-Express 2.0 Low Profile Ready SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Controller Card


Not really any pro's.


Tricky set up.

Other Thoughts:

I got this for my room mate, but he decided to get a whole new set up instead, and I got to play with this for a little bit.

Drivers were a bit tricky, you have to specifically pin point the driver itself in order to install, can't do the folder which I thought I had a broken card but figure it out after all.

The card wasn't that great, it was great for Windows environment but when it came down to transfer files from one drive to another in separate controller and in the same, the speeds weren't that great, which I was surprised considering this is a 6GB rate card/controller.

And is this good for someone that has the need for extra SATA ports, but remember, something NOT mentioned anywhere on the newegg site is that you'll need PCI-Ex version 2.0 in order to get 6GB speed, otherwise it'll downgrade to 3GB/s speed.

I filed for an RMA but the re-stocking fee and shipping this back it's pointless, so I'll keep it, just in case.
