1.0 out of 5 stars Used to be ok, but broke in less than 4 months, 5 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Syba 2 Port SATA 6Gbps PCI-Express x1 2.0 Card (Personal Computers)
Like many people I had a computer that was fine, but the old hard disk was slow. I got a 256GB SSD for it in the black friday deals knowing that my PCIE bus is version 2, and that my sata ports were sata 2 as well, but my new Crucial M4 is SATA 3.
So this looked like the ideal add in card and because I decided to do a new install of Win 7 it was no problem getting it working and the speed was brilliant. Until today. Messages about not being able to find the boot disk. Hmmm. After disconnecting everything and reconnecting everything there was no change, still no disk. So I plugged the SSD into the motherboard sata 2 port and it worked fine.
I tried many things, first disconnecting power completely and leaving the computer alone for 30 minutes, also resetting bios to defaults and clearing bios using the jumper. Using the other port on this card, using different sata cables. I tried a different SSD with this card and tried the card in another slot. All resulted in nothing.

So sadly it is going back to amazon and I will have to find another sata 3 add in card.

How did you determine that it wasn't the M4 drive which was the problem? (given that this is an extremely unreliable drive in its own right - I've had 3 fail with the same issue you describe out of 4 I bought for our office PCs)

Because I tested the SSD in one of the motherboards sata 2 ports and it worked fine. I also tested the SSD in my main gaming computer which has plenty of sata 3 ports and it was detected and I could see contents etc. Plugging the SSD into this card = nothing, just not detected. I tried a 500gb 2.5" disk in it and it was also not detected. I plugged the whole lot into my gaming computer with the same results so it was not a driver issue either.
