5 out of 5 eggsGreat card

Pros: Price(less than half the cost of the 8 port version), speed, reliability. Buy it.

Cons: Probably not great for an enterprise install, but why would you be looking at this card for that type of setup?

Other Thoughts: This is my second purchase of this card due to the ever growing needs for storage space. It is a great card for a file server. I have them setup under headless Ubuntu servers and run software raid through them. Speeds are good, but I haven't done extensive testing. I wish the 8 ports versions were a little cheaper.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed in two months on unraid

Pros: Cheap. Came with cables. Small

Cons: After about 6 weeks I noticed that I couldn't get a smart report from one of my drives, identification failure, I think. After much mucking about, I determined it was the port itself and stopped using it. Now several weeks later my Syslog is full of hard resets due to failed command: IDENTIFY DEVICE for all three of the other ports, but not my mb ports.

Overall this device has cost me a lot more than the $32 I spent.

Oh, plus it's out of the RMA window.

1 out of 5 eggsDamaged during shipping and some ports don't work.

Pros: None

Cons: The package came in a bubble warp envelope, and the small box was smashed. I figured I would try and test it out anyway and 3 out of 4 ports worked.

Other Thoughts: This is the first issue I've had with Newegg products. Their customer service was swift and excellent. The RMA has been created and I am shipping it back. I will just invest in a new motherboard.

1 out of 5 eggsdisappointing

Pros: It was reasonably cheap.

Cons: Doesn't work. Not recognized by Windows 7, so I can't even install drivers.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

This product is one of our most reliable controller cards that is compatible to most Operating Systems.

Ensure that the card is seated in the proper PCIe slot.

Try removing the card and reseating it into another PCIe Slot.

Update your motherboards BIOS and confirm the BIOS settings has PCIe channels enabled.

Our technical support team is available to help 9am-5pm M-F. Feel free to contact us during those business hours at support@sybausa.com

5 out of 5 eggsA perfect fit

Pros: Price, 4 SATA ports
Works out of the box with Ubuntu Server
good throughput
Works with my 3TB drives
Not HW RAID
PCIe x1

Cons: data throughput could be better but that's picking nits

Other Thoughts: Excellent choice for JBOD or software RAID. With 3 of these I can get 16 drives into my media server. Where else you going to get that for under $100?! And without a huge performance hit, too - performance is more than acceptable. My motherboard has 1 PCIe x16 and 2 x PCIe x1 slots, so this worked out beautifully.

4 out of 5 eggsWorking well

Pros: Working well, I am using this with a few 2TB drives.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Turn off PCIe Link State Power Management in Windows so drives never go to sleep.

1 out of 5 eggsEdit to Previous Review: Works When I need it to but took some tinkering

Pros: Pros have actually been wiped out over the last month

Cons: In my previous review, I stated that I had to put my computer into sleep mode then wake it back up for the card to recognize any drives attached to it. Eventually, this got a little annoying. Since I upgraded my pc with some new hard drives (solid state) etc., I reloaded my pc, and I tried to install the card in accordance with how tech support recommended. After the full install, I still had to put the computer into sleep mode and wake it up to get any drives to work. NOW FOR THE NEW MAJOR COMPLICATION. After the reload, my pc worked fine for a few days, and then it started having boot issues. I thought at first I had gotten a virus somehow so I reloaded again since a virus scan found nothing. After this reload, the computer worked fine for a couple more days, and then more boot issues. Either it would say that my drive was orphaning files and they needed to be recovered. Or the system would not recognize my boot drive at all. To beat it all, the boot drive was not even installed through the card but it was directly linked to my motherboard. After troubleshooting my system for a few weeks, I decided that either my motherboard was going bad since it would work fine for a few days or some of the new parts that I installed were causing issues. I decided to start by removing this sata card from my system. As soon as I did, I have not had any more problems with my system. For some reason this card just did not want to work with my pc no matter how I tried to install it. It installed just enough to toy with my pc. Under hardware manager, there was not any warnings (yellow signs, red x's, etc.) that the card was not functioning properly; however, it did a number on my system. I really need a new sata card for all the drives that I am running in my pc, but to be honest, I am a little scared of Syba products right now. If Syba would like to prove me wrong by mailing me another/different card that they would like to try with my system, I would welcome the response. However as far as me purchasing another one, there is no way. Unless Syba decides to make this transaction good in some way, I will try my best to avoid their products in my personal computers and in the computers of my clients.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

We would advise you to complete our RMA form for a replacement device.

5 out of 5 eggsSyba2nd

Pros: I used up all my 6 ports and needed expansion so a card with 4 ports help to add more HDD to my Storage needs. This allowed me to use my Asus board of 7 yrs to expand with 2 syba 4 port giving me 8 ports to use of which I used up now. Now I might get a 8 port syba card to give myself more expansion to add more HDD. I have a full tower Cosair that can expand to 36 HDD but will most likely go to 24 since the GPU will be longer thus I won't get the full 36 HDD expansion. I do also have one of the two 4 port attached to my Optical BD burner LiteOn and it works so it's not limited to HDD only. Also my system didn't need to install any software as it detected and recognized the attached devices. I am running Windows 7x64 Ult Sp1 as well. Oh and my Asus has the lastest updated BIOS as well so that might help to better recognize the cards.

Cons: Having too few ports....getting a 8 port will be the next upgrade to see if it will take. This if works will mean a 7 yr old board is still able to handle the expansion.

Other Thoughts: Beyond problems others are having my old 7 year Asus board seems to take them without any problems and could be board or driver related for other users but my experience so far has been good with the 4 ports syba cards and I have two of them in the PCI-e slots as well and those control WD 3tb Green drives in GPT format. Those drives are mainly backup/storage not a main drive. So for now I give it 5 stars as I haven't had problems others have mentioned so far as a good value expansion 4-port card.

5 out of 5 eggsFits in x1 Slot - Has 1-Lane Bandwidth

Pros: Good way to add 4 extra SATA ports to your PC.

Good value.

Works in PCI-e x1 slot, doesn't need an x4 slot or higher.

Cons: Limited to 1-Lane of bandwidth which in turn limits maximum Sequential Read speed to around 380MB/sec.

Using for Windows boot drive (usually C: drive) requires extra steps before connecting boot drive.

Other Thoughts: Good basic card to get extra SATA ports.

If using this card for boot drive be sure to install card, boot up so Windows installs drivers, reboot to complete driver install, shutdown and connect boot drive, then boot immediately into BIOS and select or re-select this card+boot drive as 1st Boot Device, then save & exit BIOS. Failure to observe these steps may result in corrupted MBR.

Also, consider SYBA SD-PEX40054 if you need any of the following:

Full SATA III speed (requires PCI-e v2.0 x4 slot or higher).
SSD cache with regular HDD.
RAID.
