SYBA SY-PEX40039 PCI-Express 2.0 SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Controller Card

4 out of 5 eggs Better Than SATA 2 09/03/2014

This review is from: SYBA SY-PEX40039 PCI-Express 2.0 SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Controller Card

Pros: Quick install, low profile bracket included, no jumpers, switched cables over and it booted.

Installed driver from included CD, rebooted, good to go. Both my SSDs showed better performance in benchmarks.

Cons: Only one PCIe lane, drives show up as removable, trying to update drivers caused grief.

Uninstalled disk drives from Device Manager, rebooted, and left things alone. All good now.

Other Thoughts: When I tried to update the drivers I got terrible speeds. Letting Windows do it's default install seems to work best.

To get rid of the removable drive aspect, I found some registry commands on a forum and modified them for this card. Make sure you run the command prompt as Administrator.

reg.exe add "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\asahci64\Controller0\Channel0" /f /v TreatAsInternalPort /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000001

reg.exe add "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\asahci64\Controller0\Channel1" /f /v TreatAsInternalPort /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000001

Reboot and no more removable devices, at least for me. Running Win 7 Home Preium x64 on a Biostar A55MD2 board (Hudson D2 chipset).

5 out of 5 eggs Good General Purpose 08/23/2014

This review is from: SanDisk SDSSDP-128G-G25 2.5" 128GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Seems to be dependable, decent size.

Cons: Not as fast as other brands.

Other Thoughts: This is a good drive for general purpose activity. I think this is SanDisk's basic model. Runs fine on SATA2. This one is just about perfect for most older laptop upgrades.

SanDisk SDSSDP-064G-G25 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Good upgrade for a school laptop.

Cons: Not as fast as others on the market.

Other Thoughts: Makes a huge difference in boot/response time compared to a 5400rpm drive. Used this to upgrade a laptop. More than enough room for Win 7 and MS Office.

As long as you don't download a bunch of music or videos you should have plenty of space for day-to-day usage.
