This review is from: StarTech 2 Port SATA 6 Gbps PCI Express SATA Controller Card Model PEXSAT32
Pros: Gives you additional sata ports...
works in the pcieX1 port of a msi h87-g43csm...
Works in Linux.
Cons: only works in a pcieX1 slot. (In my experience)
Meaning YMMV if you use it in a mini-itx MB.
Other Thoughts: does NOT transfer data in an asus h87i mini-itx pcieX16... But it does get detected and shows hard drives detected.... Because it was installed in a pcieX16 port.
BUT IT DID WORK in a msi h87-g43 pcieX1 slot.
So my advice is only use this card in a PCI E x1 slot.
I gave this card a 4 stars because it does work in the proper slot.. it does work, so i wanted to give it 3-2-1 stars but it does work, so it does not deserve a lower rating.
Pros: cleans up the cable mess in an mini-itx case.
the perfect accessory for the node 304 case.
Cons: Not a "remove a star issue", but the latch fingers on the cables sometimes require "lifting" with a sharp edge, (Careful, a Knife) .. Because some drives sata ports are a bit loose...
Other Thoughts: The drives that the cables in the stock state have trouble latching to are the WD RED 1TB... a slight mod make them fit tightly
(BTW, i bought 10).
Pros: Just works, plug it in to a 3.0 port into a 2.5 drive.. Vroom, interfaced WD 1TB drive under linux trusty tahr. LINUX compatible
Cons: Under windows, who knows?.
Not useful for 3.5 inch drives due power issues.
Other Thoughts: After using the dreadful starcom pex32 sata pcie card, this usb adapter is great!.
Same speed as a sata port (IMO)
Linux ists it as a ASMedia 2105 SATA bridge.
using this adapter with a h87i asus MB. And 3.13.0-45 linux (trusty tahr)
