SYBA Combo USB 3.0 + SATA III 6Gbps, v2.0 PCI Express, x4 Slot Controller Card Model SD-PEX50055
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: SATA works. Mostly.

Was cheap enough that failure of USB3 ports makes RMA stupid... wait... maybe that isnt a pro. It half works, so you get less than half credit. Two eggs is being generous.

Cons: USB fail. Spent a dozen hours messing around... contacted the manuf'r, got the "maybe you didnt install it right" and "make sure the drivers are the most recent" ... and updated every other driver on my aging ASRock 870 Extreme 3 mobo.

Actually they did briefly work when first installed... and yes, the ports have power. Still a fail. Return shipping would be like $11, minus restocking fees... leaves me with like $11 refund for something that should never have been released.

Other Thoughts: Installed in free PCIe2x16 slot in mobo... powered via molex->floppy adapter...

Funny- when a device is hot-plugged in to the SATA port, my antivirus (AVG) says its a removable drive... and scans it... and Seatools lists the drive TWICE- at the beginning and the end of the list (of internal drives). Like there's two drives even though there's one attached to the card. And Windows "properties" lists the device as ATA, not SATA (but speed is like SATA- an older WD black laptop drive did well over 150M/s). Makes me think maybe the drivers for the USB and SATA are interacting somehow.

SAMSUNG EcoGreen F4 ST2000DL004 2TB 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Low power, adequate performance, price, and size when bought

Cons: Like the title seaz- I bought two, and am retiring them both after 2 yrs. Of course, the warranty was for only ONE.

Silly me. At least I had all data backed up elsewhere.

No more cheeeep drives for me. These are great as door stoppers or toys for the kids to explore/destroy :)

  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Was fast, big... and relatively inexpensive at the time. Probably one of the, if not the, 1st standard height 1TB drive

Cons: Oh My DOG....

Returned both after failures... got replacements... and one of them failed too.

Other Thoughts: just don't.
