This review is from: SYBA PCI-Express 2.0 x 4, 1 x M.2 M-Key and 1 x M.2 B-Key Card Model SI-PEX40117
Pros: The install of the M.2 was easy.
It fit inside the PCI slot
Support does answer emails within 2 days.
Cons: Still haven't got it to work, it says plug and play but Microsoft did an update to Windows and there is this long complicated process to get it to work with Windows 7, though I have yet to get the card recognized by my Asus bios so noting with Windows will recognize anything until then, I'm still working with support on the issue but it's tough to get a proper answer out of them.
Other Thoughts: I've installed a couple mSATA PCI cards before which required software to be installed with it, and it worked every time. Do yourself a favour and spend the extra couple bucks and buy a card that comes with its own software. It will be much easier and so less of a headache if you do. If your cheap and have all the time in the world then try it, but I'm already considering spending the extra for something that works.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast, reliable, easy install, good price considering others in its class.
Cons: None so far
Other Thoughts: I came across these mSATA drives a little over a year ago and have been amazed with them ever since I had my Intel NUC boot windows 7 in under 20sec. I picked up a raid card and popped two of these bad boys in it and it's amazing, almost 1tb of space and it is lightening fast. Still have 2 empty slots which I going to fill with two more of these at well. For some reason every benchmark I have used has tested these faster than the Samsung drives I own. mSATA is the way of the future, just need to get the rest of the world to realize how amazing these chips really are.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Boots quick, light, can put what you want on (though may not run), great battery charge
Cons: Windows 8, touchscreen iffy at best, not nearly enough power
Other Thoughts: It took 5 tries to get windows 8 upgraded (kept saying it there was a mistake and froze. Required a complete reinstall), most games I want to run are hindered to a small square on the screen because of two choices in screen resolution. Don't let the full windows 8 fool you, in app mode it works great, desktop mode lags, crashes, and is an all round crummy experience. Still one of the better tabs I have owned.READ FULL REVIEW
