SYBA SD-SA2PEX-2IR PCI Express SATA II (3.0Gb/s) Controller Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs reliable sata ad in card 09/11/2014

This review is from: SYBA SD-SA2PEX-2IR PCI Express SATA II (3.0Gb/s) Controller Card

Pros: I purchased this card when it first came out. I now installed 12 of these cards. with out issue. I tried others that are unreliable specially for servers,. not this one this one is the best for reliability and decent ok speeds

Cons: only cone is setting it up but considering its the most reliable card out of many I have used its worth the few extra minutes to setup . also the newer versions are terrible wish they make something this good that supports trim

Other Thoughts: I been in the computer field for decades and out of every low cost add in sata card I have tried including sata3 cards this one is by far the best. its reliability in a server is 100%. I can not say that for any other add in card aside from hardware cards costing hundreds of dollars and a few of them failed.

if you looking to just add a couple of hard drives ( not SSD ) though I have used with first generation sata2 SSD and works fine .

to just ad some drives this is the one look no further buy it

I used with security camera server constantly writing to the drive 24/7 on all the time with out issue still running 5 years now with out issue and a few workstations and servers and even some old time motherboards that there sata controllers stopped working bring a old computer bake to life . LOL

I have not used with CD-ROMs or Blu-ray though I read it works with that ..

mostly in servers to add hard drives and repairing and a few old computers that there satas controllers failed

in the past many years ago when motherboards were flaky and you if set this add in sata card up correctly it is more reliable and faster then the onboard sata controller . this is before sata3 come out

this is the only card I would trust in a server specially one that constantly writing to the hard drive

a few years ago even used in a untangle security box with out fail and many others

cant go wrong with this one buy it , just be prepared to spend a few minutes downloading the driver and firmware/bios from silicon image and set it up,. don't use the cd it comes with

Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced - Mini-ITX Computer Case with USB 3.0 and Long Graphics Card Support - Black
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: nice compact mini itx case. well built

Cons: there is no reason that mini itx cases especially this one to have such a poor designed cpuy cooling , with out its fan on cpu temps climb. try designing something correctly.

Other Thoughts: really disappointing the terrible cpu cooling designs in most mini itx cases , guess if they built it right the first time there would be no reason to build more aside from aesthetics. if you want anything done right do it your self if your capable

1 out of 5 eggs review update do not trust this psu 08/29/2014

This review is from: SeaSonic SS-300SFD 300W SFX12V v3.1 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC SeaSonic USA SS-300SFD Power Supply

Pros: worked great when it worked. stable voltage . warning !!!!

read other thoughts

Cons: burnt out motherboard. two router lan socket even the inputs on my 42inch lcd monitor

Other Thoughts: i was using this with a intel 35w cpu setup. the max wattage it used was 66watts. it was a security camera server DVR on all the time 24/7
I came home the other day it was 96f in the room where this was setup and the computer was off .

to make a long story short. the computer was burnt out, even the lan socket and the lan socket next to the one this computer was connected to non functional on a asus ac66 router burnt out . the 42 inch lcd monitor inputs are all burnt out. this power supply cost me a fortune.

i have 2 security dvr's one has a pc power and cooling power supply next to this one and all fine no problem

i always used pc power and cooling power supplies and they not failed me even under extreme heat conditions over 100f .very sorry i didn't this time with this computer. am i upset what you think ? fuming mad want to sue seesonic


i know it not the best being its a non standard form factor still seesonic is a good brand and this never should have happened.

i have even used cheepo power supplies $16 real cheepos didn't even do this. yes they failed but with out damaging anything

i so upset about this you have no idea and have lost faith

i do have seesonics fanless top ratted power supply and its one of the best . it works way beyond it ratted specs even in extreme temps and confirmed by many professional reviews. i wanted as small of a footprint as possible with mini itx case and this power supply.

it not worth it, going back to cases that use standard power supplies. it would have been one things if this power supply just failed but for it to burn out my 42inch lcd monitors inputs. the monitor works just the inputs are burnt out and the routers ports the computer was plugged into. come on. this power supply can not be trusted and is garbage

i suppose if you have ac on all the time and keep temps under 80f it will be fine otherwise don't buy this power supply.
