This review is from: SYBA SY-PEX40039 PCI-Express 2.0 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
Pros: I bought this to replace an older one that was a bit worn and too big since I lost some weight. As other reviews noted, the sleeves are a smidge short, and it's also more black-brown than brown. The leather isn't as soft as I'd like, but perhaps that'll come with time. I also can't tell whether or not it's real leather, but I'm willing to give the benefit of doubt for now. Good value, assuming this is real leather.
Cons: Short sleeves, not too soft yet.READ FULL REVIEW
