SYBA SI-PEX40094 PCI Express Low Profile Ready SATA SATA III 2 Internal 6Gbps Ports PCI-e Controller Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Cost Effective
Easy to work with

Cons: Somehow the numbers got reversed on box Label as compared to the website. It doesn't matter because all the products in this line (Chipset) used same driver package.

Other Thoughts: I bought this a cheap fix for a bad motherboard controller. My SDDs are now running about 15% slower but I had no issues with booting my old windows installation. I dropped the card in and it booted. I installed the drivers after the system was booted.

This is branded as IOCrest but the manual indicates it's a Syba Product.

Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Personally, I like how thin it is. It leaves some room for air flow.

Nice and quiet so far.

Cons: I don't see a performance increase on a sata 6.0Gb controller. My tests show only about a 1 MB/sec variation between a 3 & 6. It also seems have a ridiculous speed drop off rate on large writes.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't say it's a bad choice but there's better drives out there. This drive is best used for lots of small files.

I wouldn't recommend it for things like drive images or virtual disks.

Rosewill RNX-56USB - Modem - Conexant Hardware-Based 56Kbps USB (Plug & Play) V.92 Data / Fax / TAM – Windows 7 Ready
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Seems to work

Cons: No speaker so it's hard to tell how the call is being answered.

Other Thoughts: I don't have much to compare it too but it seems slow. The vista 64 drivers worked on my win 7 machine. My win 7 32 bit machine picked up the driver automatically.
