This review is from: BYTECC Bracket-35225 2.5 Inch HDD/SSD Mounting Kit For 3.5" Drive Bay or Enclosure
Holds 2 drives
Needed this to slap in some previously external drives into my case. They fit well and get the job done.
Cons: Poor documentation
Cheap feel to the plastic
Mounting two drives above each other does not allow for them to be offset (a hassle if you have 90 degree SATA cables).
Pros: $9.99 (w/ rebate and free shipping)
Easy to physically install
No external power needed
Cheap little card to help you get HD out if your onboard is out of date. Couldn't pass it up at $9.99 (w/ rebate).
Cons: Driver cd did not work (got accessed denied error)
Idle case temperature has jumped 20 degrees F from my previous card.
Had to download drivers from online.
This review is from: SYBA SD-SATA150R PCI 2.2 SATA Controller Card
Pros: - Easy to install
- Allows for 2 more SATA ports
- Transfer rate is around 70 mb/a
- Sees drives over 2.2 TB
- Makes use of those old PCI slots
- RAID 0 or 1
I bought this originally just to have 2 extra sata ports on my system, but when I got a 3tb internal drive that my legacy bios mobo could not see it beyond 756gb, this drive saved it.
Plugged it in and windows recognized it and downloaded the drivers automatically from Windows Update. No need to use the confusing CD. Speeds are around 70mb/s.
Cons: - Drivers cd is confusing and clustered
- Cheap SATA cable
- Poor documentation.
Some manufacturers place restrictions on how details of their products may be communicated.
