SYBA SY-PEX50039 PCI Express SATA / IDE RAID Controller Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Does not work with my system 05/23/2013

This review is from: SYBA SY-PEX50039 PCI Express SATA / IDE RAID Controller Card

Pros: inexpensive

Cons: I have a ASUSTeK Computer INC. M2N68-AM Plus Rev X.0x Motherboard with a rev 1 PCI-e setup. The x1 slot was not available and because the Rev1 x1 slot is offset the card would not fit the other slots. After talking with their support I removed the mounting bracket to have it fit into the x16 slot available. The system will not even start to boot with the card installed- a second of fan whir and it goes dark. They told me it was tested for all motherboards (but not mounted in the case so that is why the mounting bracket issue was unknown, but the card is not compatible with my computer. Since they want a restocking fee for a return I just set the card aside for using in another computer some time later and will look for a different card to expand with.

Other Thoughts: I am sure it is a good card for newer motherboards, but it is not as universal as I had hoped from the descriptions.

Western Digital Caviar Green WD15EZRX 1.50 TB 3.5
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Bundled with Acronis disk cloning software (download from WD's website for this drive)

Cons: First drive I bought could not initialize, NewEgg was out of stock so I contacted Western Digital and they replaced it- second drive would not completely format, diagnostics showed many bad sectors and would not write zeros past a certain point. WD is replacing it with a drive of a different type

Other Thoughts: Western Digital has solid customer support- very good to work with. I have two other WD drives in my system and no problems ever with them.
