SYBA SI-PEX24038 1-Port Ethernet PCI-Express x1, Revision 1.0a with Standard & Low Profile Brackets- Realtek Chipset 10/ 100/ 1000Mbps PCI-Express 1 x RJ45
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It worked

Cons: It did not work very well. I was replacing an Intel PCI not PCIe network card in a small server I have thinking I would get more thruput with a PCIe card. Well this card sure did not do it. After installing the card and installing the provided driver, the max speed was 11,000kbytes per second. I put the old Intel brand PCI card back in and I get 51,000Kbytes per second. I don't know what the problem is but I am staying with the old PCI card.

Other Thoughts: There is some kind of a problem with this card. It is sold as a SYBA card but when it comes it is a card made in china with the model number SI-PEX24038 but nothing about SYBA. The brand name on the box is IOCREST.

Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: none

Cons: Bios had hard time detecting drive and once it did windows 7 said it had 128GB not 2TB. This is on 2 year old Z77 motherboard. I just returned it for a refund. lost the return shipping cost on a drive that was defective.

Other Thoughts: Seagate drives are faster and quieter than WD but they do seem to die fast.

Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: cheap price

Cons: Wish I had red this where they talk about 1tb platters
Barracuda 1TB-per-disk technology incorporates 340,000 unique tracks in the width of a single inch. This incredible storage density drives new capacity possibilities and lowers your total storage costs. Seagate AcuTrac technology enables new storage densities with accurate reading and writing to nano-sized tracks that are only 75 nanometers wide! That’s about 500 times smaller than the period at the end of this sentence. (3 Disks for 2TB model)

Other Thoughts: This will just be used for backups but I think I have had it with Seagate.
