Pros: I have purchased a number of these refurbished OCZ drives, I'd say about 10 so far. Every one of them has performed beautifully, speeds are high, data reliability has been good. So far every one of them has come with the newest firmware pre-installed.
Cons: Nothing bad to say about them
Other Thoughts: These really help to bring a new life into the old Core 2 Duo laptops that people bring into the shop. People always comment that they feel like their computers are faster than the brand new ones they use at work. For most daily use these save you a lot more time than a faster CPU would.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: iStarUSA Host Controller Model SAGE-PCIE-2U3
Pros: Speeds are good.
No drivers needed.
Cons: Drops connections to devices when used very heavily at all.
Connection is fine for transferring a few hundred megabytes, but attempting to transfer tens of gigabytes fails every time with every device I have.
Other Thoughts: I bought this to run external drive enclosures for data recovery. This card consistently disconnects from them. I also have problems with it allowing me to transfer to my USB 3 thumb drives for long periods of time.
I have no problems with the devices using the built in USB 2.0 ports on the workstation, so it has to be a problem with the card.
I've had these problems with a wide variety of Linux kernels, and several times under Windows 8. For the money, I'd recommend you look elsewhere.
