4 out of 5 eggs Working well under Win8.1 02/20/2014

This review is from: SYBA SY-PEX40039 PCI-Express 2.0 SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Controller Card

Pros:

Inexpensive card, does what I need it to do. In the PCIe 1x slot of my Asus M5A88-V EVO motherboard my SSD gets the same benchmarks as when I have it hooked up directly to the motherboard. Note that the port on the mobo is set to RAID mode though, part of the reason I got this card was to occasionally move the drive over to it for full AHCI capability and allow my Intel SSD software to update the SSD firmware. Can't do that through the RAID set mobo ports, works fine through this card. Haven't had any issues with the card (other than the notes in "Cons") using it with bare Asmedia drivers.

Cons:

The SATA plugs on the board are designed for the "force fit" SATA cable connectors, the ones that have no clip. If you have cables with the clip you may get flaky connections to the card. The only reason I knocked off an egg.

Other Thoughts:

I've ordered a few Molex 47080-4005 SATA sockets from Digikey. These have the shroud that allows for clip SATA cables to be properly connected. Going to see if my soldering skills are up to removing the existing connectors and replacing them with what I would prefer to have. The connectors Syba used look to be similar to the Molex 67490-1220. Would have been nice if Syba went with shrouded connectors but (in bulk) it would have cost about 10c more per connector, not counting potential manufacturing hardware changes.
