Pros: I have four of these functioning in three different machines. handling different sizes from 7TB, 28TB, 28TB of storage in software RAID-5. Best cards to accomplish my needs. Speeds are as to be expected, when will we ever hit theoretical controller speeds (never). Works with AMD APU boards and SuperMicro Server Boards. I will continue to build out my storage with these cards. I usually have a heart attack when they go out of stock but will soon realize that NewEgg will always order more to restock there warehouse.
Positive for both NewEgg and Syba
Cons: My only problem was that I had lost the driver CD and the weblink on Syba's website was broken so I had to order another card so I can get the disc to install the driver to multiply the ports. I can not ding my review cause of my clumsiness and not being able to find the driver CD
Other Thoughts: Specically NewEgg, please keep this on your shelves.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SYBA SY-PEX40016 PCI Express SATA II (3.0Gb/s) RAID Controller Card
Pros: Cheap and easy
Cons: Well one of the three cards started beeping, but Syba doesn't have any information on beep codes. However, they state only 2 to 4 drives to be attached, why have a fifth port? Very MISLEADING. As my 14tb array is still functioning with all five ports used I think I will just let it be.
Other Thoughts: if the fifth SATA port can't be used then don't add the port. Very misleading company.READ FULL REVIEW
