This review is from: SYBA SD-PCM50026 3 x USB 2.0 + 1 x eSATA PCMCIA Card - Retail
Install is simple, no driver, insert card and it works.
Do not be misled into thinking ESATA port will give you a big speed boost. I checked chips used after noticing no real speed increase. What you have is a PCI TO 4 PORT USB CONTROLLER, where one of the ports is converted to ESATA using a USB - SATA BRIDGE. So ESATA works but at USB speed. Anyway, I like the extra ports, so will keep. If you want a faster ESATA, pick one of the other cards that directly connects to PCI bus.
I was hoping this card had separate PCI connects, one for USB, one for ESATA, BUT I guessed wrong.
