SYBA Combo Ports USB 3.0 + SATA 6G PCI-e Card,  Switchable SATA Port Model SY-PEX50043
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: This is the only USB 3.0 card that I've ever seen to work on a PowerEdge R720. All the other cards require a 4-port power connector to be plugged into the board, but this one does not, so it makes it easy to install in servers where there are no power cables available.

There are several different device drivers on the CD. The manual that comes with the card tells you exactly which one to use. It is OK to install the driver after installing the hardware.

Works out of the box in Linux (kernel needs CONFIG_USB_XHCI_HCD enabled).

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: The card provides a USB 3.0 root hub. The eSATA connector is basically a USB->SATA adapter built-in to the card, so it shows up as a USB 3.0 device.

StarTech PLATEIDE2CF IDE to CF Adapter Card with a PCI Bracket
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Works great! 07/25/2012

This review is from: StarTech PLATEIDE2CF IDE to CF Adapter Card with a PCI Bracket

Pros: No free PCI slot required on mainboard--just pop it into any slot available on the chassis and you're set!

Cons: Needs the spare 4-pin power cable connected to it, but that's required for any IDE to CF adapter.

Other Thoughts: I've got at least 20 installed in the field for at least a year now and none have failed.

KINAMAX NT-USB20 USB 2.0 to RJ45 Fast Ethernet 10/100 Base-T Network Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

1 out of 5 eggs Fails within 3 weeks 03/01/2011

This review is from: KINAMAX NT-USB20 USB 2.0 to RJ45 Fast Ethernet 10/100 Base-T Network Adapter

Pros: Cheap?

Cons: 2 of these failed within 3 weeks of use. The first one stopped being recognized in the list of USB devices. On the second one, the blue internal LED that normally shows activity started blinking nonstop whenever an Ethernet cable was plugged in. In both cases, I swapped it out with a new unit to resolve the problem.
