Pros: I used up all my 6 ports and needed expansion so a card with 4 ports help to add more HDD to my Storage needs. This allowed me to use my Asus board of 7 yrs to expand with 2 syba 4 port giving me 8 ports to use of which I used up now. Now I might get a 8 port syba card to give myself more expansion to add more HDD. I have a full tower Cosair that can expand to 36 HDD but will most likely go to 24 since the GPU will be longer thus I won't get the full 36 HDD expansion. I do also have one of the two 4 port attached to my Optical BD burner LiteOn and it works so it's not limited to HDD only. Also my system didn't need to install any software as it detected and recognized the attached devices. I am running Windows 7x64 Ult Sp1 as well. Oh and my Asus has the lastest updated BIOS as well so that might help to better recognize the cards.
Cons: Having too few ports....getting a 8 port will be the next upgrade to see if it will take. This if works will mean a 7 yr old board is still able to handle the expansion.
Other Thoughts: Beyond problems others are having my old 7 year Asus board seems to take them without any problems and could be board or driver related for other users but my experience so far has been good with the 4 ports syba cards and I have two of them in the PCI-e slots as well and those control WD 3tb Green drives in GPT format. Those drives are mainly backup/storage not a main drive. So for now I give it 5 stars as I haven't had problems others have mentioned so far as a good value expansion 4-port card.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Cost of buying two saves time/money is a big incentive. Very good black printouts for printing or faxing or scanning.
Cons: Can be dusty when removing toner so do with care.
Other Thoughts: Beyond being less expensive when buying bulk from local electronics retailer. Only down is the wait for the item to arrive but fits and works well with Samsung printer. No problem removing or replacing-one needs to take time in doing so as to reduce the amount excessive toner dust from getting on to stuff or things.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: None at the moment until I can get it installed and running...
Cons: Well if Newegg RMA ever gets their act together and read my RMA instructions and send me the correct version then I be inclined to revisit my review and update it. Also not sure what wires were crossed but customer service needs to correctly pass the information to RMA department so they would send a v.2 unit not resending another v.1 unit again....
Other Thoughts: Very bad RMA exchange process. I am not sure what is going on but I had requested that I be sent a unit was 2TX prefixes to qualify it is a v.2 model of the dual band. Of which was to replace the v.1 unit that I read had caused so much problem with buyers that Netgear updated the unit to a v.2 model but so far my 1st RMA has them sending me another v.1 model when I had requested that they read the instructions and make sure that they were sending me a v.2 unit not a v.1 that was giving those buyers so much problems. Netgear needs to contact Newegg and tell them to stop selling the v.1 and make sure they are selling a v.2 unit to current buyers and not try to pass a v.1 to them constantly.READ FULL REVIEW
