This review is from: SYBA SY-PCI40010 PCI SATA II (3.0 Gb/s) RAID Controller Card
Pros: Affordable, installation was simple. Windows automatically downloaded and installed drivers. This is perfect for JBOD applications.
Cons: Software based RAID, terrible idea if you want business level performance.
Other Thoughts: I set it up as JBOD and allowed the OS to manage RAID.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Nice drive, but only capable of SATA 3Gb/s.
Cons: I recently purchased this item, It’s advertise that it is capable of SATA 6Gb/s speeds. Days afterwards, I discovered that it is only capable of SATA 3Gb/s, I confirmed this on the venders site, under Specs. Many people are likely buying this and not getting what they think they are getting. I hope they update the advertisement for this product as soon as possible.

Pros: Cheap, affordable, free shipping is a major plus. Installation was simple. Windows automatically downloaded and installed drivers. This is perfect for JBOD applications.
Cons: GUI software is JAVA based. The RAID support in this thing is totally software based and there is no controller configuration outside of the host operating system. Running these dirt-cheap imitation raid cards in RAID mode is a terrible idea if you want performance. Outside of Windows, it nagged that only had one drive was attached. It DOES NOT support the port multiplier ability through BIOS. Device supports port multiplier through WINDOWS ONLY!
Other Thoughts: I set it up as JBOD. Hooked up to one SANS DIGITAL TR4M, when I copy to it, aside from being very slow, every 20 minutes or so it freezes and doesn't start again until Windows times out and resets it after a couple of minutes. When hooked up to two SANS DIGITAL TR4M, the issues seemed to subside. I bought two cards, RMA’ed one (return shipping cost almost as much as the card).READ FULL REVIEW
