This review is from: SYBA SY-PCI40010 PCI SATA II (3.0 Gb/s) RAID Controller Card
Pros: Inexpensive RAID5 capable card. Installed with no issues. BIOS came up and RAID5 drive configured. Installed RAID BIOS/Driver from CD in Win7. set up and formatted RAID drive. No issues so far. Just 4 eggs because it lacks management software.
Cons: Just a couple minor issues. After establishing a RAID the boot-up screen no longer appears, so I don't know if I will be able to change the RAID. No provision in the card BIOS for a "spinning spare." No management software on the CD. Guess for the price, I shouldn't complain too much.
Other Thoughts: It's PCI not PCI e so throughput speed won't be great. And for some reason it only comes with 2 SATA cables, so you need to supply a couple of your own if you want more than 2 drives.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: NETGEAR ProSAFE 16-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch (GS116) - Lifetime Warranty
Pros: Worked well for a long time.
Cons: Just died, can't get Netgear to honor the warranty
Other Thoughts: Purchased from Newegg on 02/26/2006. Has run since then without issues. Area is well ventilated. Always ran cool. Home environment. Just died. Looks like a power supply problem. Called Netgear and they said "out of warranty."READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good price, good reviews, arrived fast, not DOA.
Cons: Shows the RAM as running at 798MHz@DDR3_1596 in Memtest86+, so -1 egg.
Other Thoughts: Installed it on my SOHO ASRock H77M MB with i5 3350P CPU to up system memory from 4 to 8GB. Set BIOS to run the memory @ XMS profile (800MHz@DDR3_1600. Booted Memtest86+ v. 5.0 and it shows the RAM as running at 798MHz@DDR3_1596. Rechecked BIOS and it's good, so no idea why. Not DOA, so no plan to send it back.READ FULL REVIEW
