Add Two Internal SATA 6Gbps Ports to Your PC System

The SYBA SI-PEX40089 is the most cost-effective way to add two internal SATA 6Gbps ports to your PC system. It only takes one PCI-Express interface. Whether your PC chassis is big or small, it is a good choice for you because it includes a low profile bracket.

Raid Support

It supports SATA hard disk drives up to 4TB, and even ATA/ATAPI-7 specification. With an embedded hardware RAID engine, you can also configure RAID 0, 1 or SPAN setup to meet your needs for optimized performance and data protection. Switch between the three RAID modes via the setting by two GPIOs or GUI utility.

Raid Support
Native Command Queue (NCQ)

It offers support for Native Command Queue (NCQ). When multiple read and write commands are sent to the SATA drive, NCQ steps in to optimize the completion of these commands by grouping the commands in order of processing efficiency, thereby reducing the mechanical workload and increase performance from the drive.

Native Command Queue (NCQ)
More Features

To give you a bonus value, it supports port multiplier with command based switching to allow you add even more hard drives to your system (Port Multiplier required) for great drive expansion. It also supports S.M.A.R.T feature which enables the PC to predict the future failure of hard disk drives. Through the SMART system, hard disk drives incorporate a suite of advanced diagnostics that monitor the internal operations of a drive and provide an early warning for many types of potential problems. When a potential problem is detected, the hard drive can be repaired or replaced before any data is lost or damaged. It also supports automatic rebuild.

PC stopped booting up

Pros: cheap

Cons: if I install this card even without connecting HD to it, Win 10 stops booting up.
If I connect storage HD to it - immediately after powering PC up, it says "HD may not be available press space to continue" and freezes- doesn't react to keyboard.

Other Thoughts: Its about 10 years old Dell PC

Dear customer,

we are sorry to hear about this issue you are having. There could be some problems with the drivers you have installed. Try using the ACHI drivers to achieve a different result. Please contact our support team to assist you at support@syabausa.com

Thank you for your feedback. We strive to improve or products and support.

Works just dandy

Pros: Affordable, works
Windows 10 (1709) found and set up the card immediately, was truly plug and play.

Cons: none in particular

Other Thoughts: Ordered Syba, received IOCrest, same thing but that's curious, perhaps the egg should update the item.
If you're concerned about speed keep in mind mechanical hard drives and even most solid state drives will not get anywhere near the SATA III spec. PCIE 2.0 tops at 500MBps while a 7200 RPM drive transfers a maximum of about 150MBps on a good day.
I use this card for two optical drives so speed is even less of a concern.

Does not work with Windows Server 2008 R2 in an HP ML350 G6

Pros: it works fine with windows 10

Cons: does not allow windows 2008 r2 to even load the dvd-r disc

Other Thoughts: Would recommend buying something different if that is your use for this product. it may work fine with 2008, but it does not work with R2

Didn't work for me, tried two 'same' cards.

Pros: Installed easy, first boot discovered SATA-RAID (Crtl-R) card, and drives connected to it.
Quickly created RAID-1 (mirror), but...

Cons: Computer freezes-UP, becomes non-responsive to any keyboard selections, just after the SATA/RAID (Hit "CTRL-R") screen after detecting the HDD's connected to it (No errors), just freezes-Up, and won't get past this screen.

Tried with a RAID-1 drive-volume configured, or without a RAID volume configured, still hangs at boot up..

Other Thoughts: Not that it should matter, but Win10/64bit OS on 3rd HDD, but would never boot, since it would hang at RAID screen.

Don't expect RAID 1 or any RAID for that matter

Pros: Adds 2 extra SATA3 ports that run at SATA2 speeds. Mechanical hard drives don't really run at SATA3 speeds, the mechanical internals are far too slow, so this is great for adding mechanical drives, but not for SSDs.

Cons: Not true SATA3 speeds. x1 PCIe lane isn't enough, just look it up.
RAID DOESN'T WORK. When I try it gives me Error 306(Vendor command step 6 timeout. Firmware is not completed) and Error 201 (Get RAID not READY)

Other Thoughts: As long as you purchase this fully aware RAID is a no go and you should only use this on mechanical drives, its OK.

Manufacturer Response:
Dear Customer,

We thank you in your interest in our products. We have tested a sample of SI-PEX40089 and here are our results:

For the speed issue, we recommend running with the Generic Windows AHCI drivers, which come after uninstalling the asmedia drivers, which tend to have this slowdown and not achieving SATA 3 speeds.

For the RAID issue, we inserted the card, pressed CTRL+R as the instructions tell, and the RAID menu appeared. We set our drives to work in RAID 0 mode. Keep in mind we were using Windows 10 and had Signature Enforcement disabled.

We hope this information helps solve your issues.

Thank you for purchasing one of our products, and for leaving us your valuable feedback.

Don't waste your time

Pros: cheap

Cons: DOA. This part doesn't cost enough to waste my time with an RMA. Should have read more reviews,, as it seems I am far from the only one who got this part DOA. I'll never waste my time with SYBA again.

Other Thoughts: I'm really get sick of this. Lately I have about a 25% DOA/failure in the first month rate with neweg parts.

Manufacturer Response:
Dear Customer,

We're sorry to hear that you had trouble with this controller card. It's concerning to hear that you have a high percentage of DOA items. We ask that you contact our support@sybausa.com in order to figure out what maybe causing your components to not be functioning. Make sure that card the card is properly inserted to the PCI express slot and that the drives attached to the card are initialized through disk management.

Thank you for purchasing one of our products, and for leaving us your valuable feedback.

Made my SSD slower

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Significantly slowed transfer speeds even with updated driver.

Other Thoughts: I bought this card on sale to add some SATA III ports to an Asus Essentio CMM571 that I spared from the scrap pile.
The motherboard had plenty of SATA II ports but I had an OCZ Trion 100 240GB SSD that I wanted to run as fast as possible.
Before I installed the Syba card the OCZ Guru software reported that the drive was not running at its full potential as AHCI was not supported by the motherboard and that the drive was connecting at SATA 2 speeds.
I had to let Windows 10 boot first to detect the card and automatically install the driver. Afterwards I shut it down and swapped the SATA cable to the Syba card.
I then restarted into the BIOS and selected the SSD again as the boot drive. Interestingly the BIOS detects the drive now as an IDE drive as opposed to SATA. I also am not planning on using the RAID functionality.
The system boots quickly but a CrystalDiskMark shows significant drops in performance across all but the 4K Q32T1 test.

Before:
Sequential Read (Q= 32,T= 1) : 264.4 MB/s
Sequential Write (Q= 32,T= 1) : 251.7 MB/s
Random Read 4KiB (Q= 32,T= 1) : 27.87 MB/s
Random Write 4KiB (Q= 32,T= 1) : 85.36 MB/s
Sequential Read (T= 1) : 256.9 MB/s
Sequential Write (T= 1) : 246.0 MB/s
Random Read 4KiB (Q= 1,T= 1) : 23.95 MB/s
Random Write 4KiB (Q= 1,T= 1) : 49.57 MB/s
Test : 1024 MiB

After:
Sequential Read (Q= 32,T= 1) : 204.995 MB/s
Sequential Write (Q= 32,T= 1) : 178.730 MB/s
Random Read 4KiB (Q= 32,T= 1) : 141.126 MB/s [ 34454.6 IOPS]
Random Write 4KiB (Q= 32,T= 1) : 95.044 MB/s [ 23204.1 IOPS]
Sequential Read (T= 1) : 197.952 MB/s
Sequential Write (T= 1) : 174.068 MB/s
Random Read 4KiB (Q= 1,T= 1) : 23.690 MB/s [ 5783.7 IOPS]
Random Write 4KiB (Q= 1,T= 1) : 44.208 MB/s [ 10793.0 IOPS]
Test : 1024 MiB

I wasn't expecting full SSD speeds but I most certainly was not expecting the drive to be slower.
I even tried updating the driver to version 3.1.7.0 and but speeds were only marginally improved.

CHEAP! U get what u pay for.

Pros: None

Cons: The card alone slowed everything down, with NOTHING attached to it. I run a SSD, 60 sec boot time, choppy sound, choppy mouse, choppy video. Pay an extra couple bucks for a better card.
