SEDNA - 2 Port PCI Express (PCIe) SATA III 6.0 Gbps Host Adapter

1 out of 5 eggs Didn't work in my system 03/05/2016

This review is from: SEDNA - 2 Port PCI Express (PCIe) SATA III 6.0 Gbps Host Adapter

Pros: Non

Cons: Wasn't recognized by Windows 10, couldn't see in Device Manager. Running setup from the included mini CD gave an error as it couldn't find the files it had extracted. Tried to manually install the drivers but since it didn't show up I couldn't.

Other Thoughts: Turned out it did indeed work albeit much slower than anticipated. I bought this to update an older MSI K9A2 Platinum motherboard with SATA III 6 Gb/s support for my new Kingston SV300 SSD's (240 GB boot) to connect to my existing WD SATA III external hard drive. The maximum transfer speeds were in the range of 200 MB/s from my tests with HD Tune.

After I add my second Kingston SSD (120 GB) it would fail during large file transfers and lock my computer up. I could only recover by pressing reset. Testing it with HD Tune it would fail after 20 seconds.

I've submitted an RMA and will try another brand.

Pros: Easily fit my case. No clearance problems. Runs super quiet and cool. Ran Furmark and barely got to 55C.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Bought this to use with Photoshop CS5. With the instant rebate and $25 mail-in rebate made for a very inexpensive upgrade.
