SYBA Combo USB 3.0 + SATA III 6Gbps, v2.0 PCI Express, x4 Slot Controller Card Model SD-PEX50055
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It's the only card I can find with both sata III and USB 3 ports.

Cons: I bought a second one of these for an HP Microserver N54L. The first one had a defective sata port. The computer would hang at boot if I connected a drive to it. The other sata port worked ok with the same cable and drive. So, this means that I have now received 2 defective cards out of the four that I have received from the Egg. The other defective card was DOA.

Other Thoughts: I hope another manufacturer enters this space so that I can dump Syba.

SYBA Combo USB 3.0 + SATA III 6Gbps, v2.0 PCI Express, x4 Slot Controller Card Model SD-PEX50055
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: When I got one that was not defective, the card added SATA III and USB 3.0 ports to an older, but still very functional, I7 motherboard. Was able to boot Win 7 Ult SSD from this controller.

Cons: The first one of these that I received was DOA. The card was not recognized by the BIOS on 2 different computers, Intel/AMD.
I am unable to boot from USB drives connected to this controller. I don't know if this is a limitation of the card or the BIOS.
Syba needs to provide more info as to what this card is capable of doing, i.e. booting

Other Thoughts: I spent way too much time trying to troubleshoot this, before returning it. I hate it when I have to waste time because the manufacturer can not be bothered to supply a quality product. Also, if Syba had provided a screen shot of their boot/BIOS screen, in their scant documentation, it would have made it much easier to decide that the card was DOA.

1 out of 5 eggs Great price if it worked 12/31/2005

This review is from: ABS NW-101-8P 8 Port FE Switch

Pros: Great price

Cons: 25% packet loss.

Other Thoughts: Obviously, there is a problem with mine. When I repace my 5 port hub with this 8 porter, it bring my network to it's knees. It's hardly worth futzing with, to return it.
