Intel E1G44HT Server Adapter I340-T4 10/ 100/ 1000Mbps PCI-Express 2.0 4 x RJ45

5 out of 5 eggs HyperV svr 2012 quad NIC 12/09/2012

This review is from: Intel E1G44HT Server Adapter I340-T4 10/ 100/ 1000Mbps PCI-Express 2.0 4 x RJ45

Pros: Drivers installed beautifully in Hyper V server 2012 in a D R720. I was amazed to see the NIC's show up clearly in Hyper V networking, Intel must have recognised how bad Hyper V networking adapter labels are and decided to fix it. Yeah to Intel!

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I was a little unsure how the drivers would install in Hyper V server 2012, same as server core, but the drivers installed ok.
My R720 came with 4 MB NIC's, but one was lost to onboard management, one to hyper V management, leaving only 2. So this is a great addition for those who want to really max out VM's.

SYBA SD-ADA45006 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Older Dell Inspiron 600M 03/02/2012

This review is from: SYBA SD-ADA45006 2.5" IDE 44-Pin To Dual Compact Flash Adapter

Pros: Form factor works for Dell IDE caddies. Previous Syba IDE I had did not have the side mounts :-( for the drive bezel. This adapter holds 2 CF cards. I did not have to switch voltages.

Cons: Cost, would like to see the adapter at half the advertised cost.

Other Thoughts: At first I used a Trans.... and it DID NOT support booting. After MUCH frustration and many unkind words to Trans.... I tried Team with full IDE spec, and voila. Boots like a champ. Revives an older laptop, slight performance improvement (only on reads) but I like it. My kids appreciate it as well. So if you're having problems, look at the mem specs, not this card.

HighPoint RocketRAID 2640x1 PCI-Express x1 Four-Port SATA and SAS RAID Controller Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Works in a Proliant DL320 G5 server 09/23/2011

This review is from: HighPoint RocketRAID 2640x1 PCI-Express x1 Four-Port SATA and SAS RAID Controller Card

Pros: Easy install, I really like the supplied SAS/SATA data/power cables, I wish I could find similar cables elsewhere. BIOS was good, easy to follow, easy to set up mirroring, 4 SATA/SAS ports a plus, reading the clear instructions before installing helped.

Cons: Once up and running, I had trouble with the windows RAID management software. It does not want to install. Need to investigate further, but for now it is running.

Other Thoughts: The Proliant DL320 G5 is hard to set up with any RAID. The onboard RAID controller was useless, it also interferes with other RAID controllers but (thankfully)not this one. I used a USB floppy drive to install the driver in BART, copy imaged from the original single drive to the array. Once the array started, I again used the USB floppy, installed the drivers and ran the CD in Windows. Perfect. Also the HP management SW sees the array as a single drive. Having the really long cables allowed me to externally run the original drive (lid on) while copying data, nice to have a solution in advance before being caught unaware.
