3 out of 5 eggsWorks When I Need it to but took some tinkering

Pros: Gets the job done

Cons: Card did not install as stated. Put the card in the system, and my computer automatically recognized it and installed a generic driver. I had to go to the device manager, and tell it to install the correct driver. The device did not show up like the manual stated. It was listed under IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers as a generic SATA controller. After I installed the correct driver, it created a new category called Storage Controllers where it is now listed as Marvell 92xx SATA 6G controller. What irritates me about this card though is every time I boot up my computer, it disappears. In order to get it to re-appear, I have to put my computer in sleep mode. When the computer awakens a few seconds later, it recognizes it again and has the correct driver installed. I have searched the net for solutions but found none. I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit with an ASRock Fatal1ty 990FX Professional motherboard.

Other Thoughts: If I can't figure out why it keeps disappearing, I will order a different card later on. Right now, I can deal with it because I was only using the card to run sata cables that lead to an external sata data port that I use to test hard drives that I am working on for customers.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

We are sorry to hear about the trouble you have been having with this controller card.

Perhaps the device is not properly recognized by the system on boot.

Try reseating the card into another PCIe slot if available. Also update the motherboard/BIOS and, ensure that any system updates have been applied.

YOu may also want to manually install the drivers for the device.

For any other help please contact Syba support.

3 out of 5 eggsFollowup on disapointment

Pros: Works as basic additional ports.

Cons: Manual (pre-rewrite) discussed HyperDuo capabilities but they are in the SI-PEX40057 which uses the Marvell 88SE9230 chipset versus this one with the Marvell 88SE9215 chipset.

Other Thoughts: The more capabile card is less expensive.

What a world.....

3 out of 5 eggsMisleading manual - now totally rewrittent

Pros: It does work to provide additional four ports for SATA drives. It does come with tall and low profile brackets. It does work so far without issue. See cons for conditions and disclosures

Cons: Manual for unit was totally rewriten in last two weeks and the card you get does NOT match the feature set of the card described in the manual. My path to this conculsion was:

Support told me a different command to access the BIOS level setup and when that did not work, they told me the card is not capable of what I am trying to do. The included manual discussed an option to create a hybrid array (HHD & SSD) which was what I bought this card for but as mentioned this is not possible.

Other Thoughts: For the price with rebate it is an OK card, but I am disapointed in having read the manual in advance to determine if it was what I needed.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

We are sorry about the misinformation included within the device manual.

Our previous manual was designed for a set of controller cards all with similar features yet only one card in the set contained HyperDuo functionality.

The manual was rewritten to better reflect the functionality of this device as with other popular devices.

If you need assistance in determing the functionality of our devices please contact Syba Support so that we may assist you.

For any other help please contact Syba support.

3 out of 5 eggsFollow Up: Compatibility Concerns

Pros: PCIe x1 connector. 4x SATA3 connectors. Both normal and low profile mounting brackets. Nothing to configure on the card.

Cons: I tested this card in a system with a Marvell embedded SATA BIOS. In that system my experience with this card ranged from complete system lock up before BIOS completed loading, to visible in the system, and it all depended on the mixture of BIOS settings, but all of this was BEFORE I attached even a single HDD to this controller. Once I attached even 1 HDD to this controller I could completely lock up the system before BIOS completed loading.

Why should attaching a HDD make a system previously booting into a system that locks up? I haven't figured it out yet, but I have tested all drives and all removable parts of the system, and they all test fine. I think the issue rests with Marvell, not Syba (who is probably building this card from a Marvell "reference" design).

Other Thoughts: I did test this card in another system that did not contain any Marvell SATA BIOS. Just as I expected, no problems booting that system with or without HDD attached to this controller. The motherboard in this alternate case is also from Supermicro.

I would buy this card again, but only for systems that do not have an embedded Marvell SATA BIOS and do not have any other add-in SATA controllers containing Marvell SATA BIOS.

One more thought: it's not worth the hassle for me to RMA this card.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

We are sorry to hear that you had trouble using this card in your system.

While there have been some minor incompatibility issues between Marvell devices before this is

new for us.

If possible please contact Syba support so that we may help test and, determine how this issue

may be resolved.

For any other help please contact Syba support.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't waste your time

Pros: It came in a box

Cons: Please believe me when I say trust the other 1 egg reviewers. This card will randomly drop your drives so your PC will no longer see them the minute there is any kind of load put on them. For example I had one drive running on port 3 fine for a week. Then I went to add another drive on port 4 and then format it. Well while formatting, drive 3 disappeared from the system. I was able to replicate this same behavior using various port combinations. A reboot brings the drives back but spare yourself the headache and get a real RAID card.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

Perhaps the drivers for the device were not properly installed.

Please check our website for the latest drivers and instruction downloads.

Also ensure that your motherboard is up-to-date and, that any system updates have been applied.
