  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Very good 07/10/2014

This review is from: SONY STRDH540 5.2-Channel 4K AV Receiver

Pros: Inexpensive, included mic for auto-configuration, all features work, good as new.

Cons: Menu navigation is clumsy, takes a while to turn on.

Other Thoughts: I got an new-looking "Refurbished" receiver in good packaging. Everything works well. I've left it on for over 3 months without any issues. .

SYBA SD-SATA150R PCI 2.2 SATA Controller Card

4 out of 5 eggs Works well on Linux 07/10/2014

This review is from: SYBA SD-SATA150R PCI 2.2 SATA Controller Card

Pros: Cheap, works on linux, good for NAS.

Cons: A bit slow.

Other Thoughts: Linux 3.14 picked up the card and the 2 3TB HDDs connected to it. I use it as JBOD, not Raid. Also worked with SSD.

Measured Speed - 110 MB/s in total (55 MB/s on each SATA port) with PCI Latency Timer at 128. If only one HDD is used, I get 90 MB/s. (The HDDs are 7200 RPM Toshibas which give me higher read/write on mobo SATA 3.0 ports; so they're not the bottleneck).

Advertised speed - PCI maxes out at 266 MB/s (32-bit at 66 MHz) and each SATA 150 port at 192 MB/s. Even with 8/10 encoding overhead or whatever they use, I expected at least 100 MB/s on each SATA port. -1 egg for that. Also, I've only had it for 1 day - dunno about longevity.

Good, inexpensive SATA PCI card. Sufficient for NAS if you don't care about speed.
