Nippon Labs Delux Internal Card Reader with Floppy Drive 3.5” Internal All In One Card Reader/Writer with USB2.0 & FDD1.44
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Works as described

Cons: These units are slightly large and tough to install in bays accustomed to other comfortable fitting 3.5” drives. It also sits deeper in the bay than other 3.5” components due to the screw hole locations being off spec. In addition, mounting holes in a plastic body is not suited to rigs requiring frequent and complete dismantling for deep cleaning and reassembly.

Other Thoughts: These units were destined for highly modified windowed cases therefore the ribbon cables begged to be dressed out. The ribbon was shortened, wire-separated, sleeved and equipped with an 8-pin aviation connection assembly and now plugs into the rear of the 3.5” bay between a pair of matching power distribution aviation plugs. A custom sleeved cable was fabricated and sneaks through the case from the aviation socket to the 1394 header on the motherboard. Works like a charm and now fits the case design.

SYBA SY-PCI40010 PCI SATA II (3.0Gb/s) 4 Port RAID 0/1/5/10 JBOD Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Submitted a review regarding a concern about these cards in March this year. The manufacturer was kind enough to promptly respond with their apologies as well as the method of resolving the issue. Two faulty cards were returned to the manufacturer and a week later replacements were in hand, with out of pocket limited to shipping costs. Thanks to Newegg for carrying concerned vendors and the SYBA staff for outstanding customer service.

Cons: None

SYBA SY-PCI40010 PCI SATA II (3.0Gb/s) 4 Port RAID 0/1/5/10 JBOD Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: For non-raid use, data storage only, these cards are an easy install and perform reasonably well for a PCI interface controller.

Cons: Bought six of these to install in four systems with two held as spares. When a channel on one of the cards went south in about eight months, no big deal, it was replaced with a spare and the system was up and running in a few hours. But when a second card lost a channel two months later, the honeymoon was over.

Other Thoughts: In windowed cases, these cards allow SATA cables to be twisted in double helix and organized in tidy bundles for a clean look on one side of the card.
