StarTech Add-On Card Model PEX1394B3LP
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Works well, easy to install 03/16/2014

This review is from: StarTech Add-On Card Model PEX1394B3LP

Pros: I am writing to correct a typo in my previous review. The phrase "simple and an expensive" should read "simple and inexpensive." Sorry about that.

Cons: None

StarTech SATAPOWPLAT1 1 Port SATA and Power Slot Plate Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Inexpensive Extra SATA Port 03/16/2014

This review is from: StarTech SATAPOWPLAT1 1 Port SATA and Power Slot Plate Adapter

Pros: I needed an extra external SATA port for the purpose of testing hard drives. This simple back plate adapter does the trick. No complaints. This is the only adapter I. could find that provided both a signal slot and a power slot.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: An integrated SATA signal + power cable must be purchased separately.

StarTech 1 Port PCI Express IDE Controller Adapter Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Nice Little IDE Controller 03/16/2014

This review is from: StarTech 1 Port PCI Express IDE Controller Adapter Card

Pros: I had two old IDE HDDs that I wanted to "recycle" in my newest computer build. Since my new motherboard has no IDE headers, this card did the trick. It was simple to install, required no drivers, and works fine. I can now access these old drives using my Win7 system. The attached HDDs were automatically detected by the BIOS

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I wanted my old drives to both be running as "Slaves." After reading the spec sheets for the drives, I concluded that my Seagate Barracuda 200 GB ST3200822A drive should have no jumpers (correct conclusion) and that my WD 320 GB WD3200AAJB drive should have a jumper cross pins 4 and 9 (incorrect conclusion). With this configuration, the system did not recognize the WD drive. The WD drive was recognized after I removed the jumper. Note that the included IDE cable was too short for my purpose. I purchased a 24" cable separately.
