SYBA SI-PEX40071 8 Internal SATA III Ports PCI-Express Card, PCI-e x2 Slot, Specification V2.0 Plus Low Profile Bracket
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I have a Plex Media Server installed on Ubuntu server 14.04.4 running kernel 4.2.0-30. I have 7x3TB Seagate ST3000DM001 drives for media and 1x120GB Samsung 850 EVO for the OS. The 3TB drives are in a 6 drive 'mdadm' RAID-10 with an additional drive as a spare in case one fails. All 8 drives I mentioned are now plugged into this SYBA SI-PEX40071 card.

Prior to this, I had the SSD plugged directly in to the motherboard which supported SATA II only. When it was there, it maxed out at approximately 220MB/s Buffered Read speeds. After moving to the SATA III card, cached reads stayed the same but buffered reads over doubled.

[Parts]
CPU: AMD FX(tm)-6300 Six-Core Processor
RAM: 8GB
NIC: Intel 82574L Gigabit
Mobo: GA-78LMT-USB3 rev 5.0
8 Port SATA PCI-e: SYBA SI-PEX40071
Media Drives: 7x3TB Seagate ST3000DM001
OS Drive: 120GB Samsung 850 EVO

Cons: As mentioned by some people on Newegg and Am Prime for this product, you may have to tinker with the BIOs to get your OS drive to come up first. My system had 3 of the 3TB media drives set to attempt to boot in before my actual OS drive so it would just hang. Once I properly re-ordered the drives, all came up and server was running in <20 seconds.

Listed as a con but not marking off ant eggs for it.

5 out of 5 eggs Great keyboard 02/20/2014

This review is from: Tt eSPORTS KB-KNK008US KNUCKER Plunger Keyboard

Pros: I love this keyboard. Has the mechanical look and feel. It's cheap and I game with it everyday.

Cons: I know it doesn't have lit keys so I'm not deducting an egg. If you want lit keys, pay more. Otherwise, this one is fantastic.
