Most Critical Review

Non-standard half-height

StarTech.com 4 Independent Port PCI Ex PCIe SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Controller Card Adapter with SATA Power Model PEXUSB3S400
StarTech.com 4 Independent Port PCI Ex PCIe SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Controller Card Adapter with SATA Power Model PEXUSB3S400

Pros: Appears to have great specs. Customer Service via Chat works well.

Cons: Not a true half height board. It's too long both forwards and backward from the PCIe connector. Even if the SATA power connector ws not at teh end, the card would still not fit in a tight server.

Overall Review: Purchased this to go into a Dell R620 with ESXi 5.1. Was not successful getting it to work even after finally making it fit in the slot. StarTech support (via chat) stated it's not tested in VMware. It wasn't listed in the specs, but decided to try it.
