Cons: Doesn't come with a lanyard.
Other Thoughts: Come on, it's just a thumb drive. It works. I wish it came with a lanyard, but that's a small gripe. It does at least have a loop for a lanyard.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SYBA SY-PEX40039 SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Controller Card
Easy to install
Comes with a low-profile bracket, if you need that
Cons: Quite finicky
Other Thoughts: This card arrived in an Iocrest box. Whatever. I tried it first in a 1x PCIe slot. It was slower than my mobo on-board SATA (as determined by AS SSD). I decided to try it in a 16x PCIe slot. Well, the card installed just fine in Windows 7 with my SSD booting off the mobo SATA, but when I connected it to boot off the card, it wouldn't boot. I tried a few things and for some reason plugging the SSD into the card Port 0, and a SATA hard drive into Port 1 did the trick. Very finicky.
My SATA III SSD runs at 380MB/s, so just a little bit more than SATA II speeds.
Pros: It worked, at first. The SATA part seems to work OK.
Cons: Worked for almost 3 months. Now the USB connector is loose. Wiggling the USB connector causes it to become connected, then disconnected. Beware.READ FULL REVIEW
