SYBA 2-Port SATA 6G Card, Mini PCI-Express Form Factor, non-RAID, ASM1061 Chipset Model SD-MPE40056
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Seems like a good idea

Cons: Just won't be recognized by my system.
Like so many other reviews here, getting this card to work is a crapshoot. May work for you, may not for it is VERY MB / BIOS dependent.
I have two mini PCIe slots, one is short, holding a Wireless card, the other held a AVerMedia TV card, which is worthless now that ClearQAM is gone for me. SO, I put mine in that slot, knowing it works.
System does not recognize the existence of the card . I see here from other that you should see the cards BIOS initialize when you start the computer, I have seen this before with desktop SCSI and RAID cards when you start the computer and they load in.
I tried it all, the re-seating people suggested, nothing worked. Saw nothing. Windows 7 sees nothing.

Other Thoughts: Don't waste your money. OR buy it, try it, Doesn't Work? send it back. It would have been a nice addition. Oh Well

Mediasonic HFR2-SU3S2 RAID 0 / 1 / 3 / 5 / 10 4 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Pretty Well put together, simple to use, setup a RAID 1 to replace my old onboard RAID 1. Everything went right in under Windows 7. Hardware RAID internal to the enclosure, JMicro. I coupled it with their own USB 3 card, but it is the same Chip as everyone else Renesas.

Cons: Haven't got any for this particular unit.

Other Thoughts: I wasn't aware that this level of devices are not mixed mode, guess you have to look for that term and it would cost more. I was just use to server scsi.
So you can only chose ONE of the RAID Levels. So a RAID 1 mirror setup can only use 2 of the 4 bays, so buy a 2 bay.

You can't move your old RAID to a differing Enclosure. You did to start with 2 drives in the enclosure and they will be initialized. Any data is lost, so you have to copy your data from old to new RAID.

YOU CANNOT BOOT USB 3 FROM AN EXPANSION CARD, at least in the crop of cards that are out there. If you have onboard USB 3 this is probably.

Seagate Momentus XT ST750LX003 750GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: WOuldn't know. It seemed a bit faster start up with it. THought maybe you had to "train" it, so I rebooted each time I updated each thing or install a software. Was not SSD speed if that is what you expect

Cons: Failed, completely, with in hours of install. No longer acessable and SeaTools reported no sectors. Going to be hard to trust after that. Went back to the basic drive
