This review is from: Low Profile Dual Ports Internal PCI-Express SATA 3.0 6Gb/s Expansion Card Marvel
Pros: You can't ask for more than the seller advertised. Yes it takes time to get her from China, and yes it cost more than the much cheaper alternatives on the site. The difference is that it worked and the others I tried were so I lost both time and money on those.
Cons: Slow delivery from China but you know that going in.
Other Thoughts: The new boards that support the AMD low power APU's seem to be built to a budget and they sacrifice extra SATA ports. If you need more than 2 drives or a combination of drive and DVD then you'll need one of these.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: NONE !!!
Cons: I bought the duplicate to this expansion card. In fact I bought two of them from the marketplace and did NOT receive the advertised driver CD or any sort of manual or instruction sheet for jumper settings.
On top of that I was unable to get either expansion card to work regardless of how I set the jumpers (easy enough to figure out) or what hard drive or DVD player burner I connected either as an internal or external device.
Because of the time and distance to return them as well as the shipping expense I'm basically out $25 even if they did credit me the cost of the original purchase.
Pros: Does what its advertised to do. Seller shipped quickly and safely. Installed and formatted without a hitch and I immediately transferred about 1 TB of collected movies from a couple of almost full main drives to this unit. It won't be in regular use as I only tap those files when I want to watch a movie
Other Thoughts: I use smaller and faster SSD's for my O/S, programs, and always needed data and reserve the larger slower drives for the stuff I don't need to access every day. Since I store a large number of movies which only get more added over time as well as documents this set-up works for me.READ FULL REVIEW
