Bought this to get extra SATA3 ports. Cards works but not at SATA3 speeds more like SATA2 (3GBps) speeds which I find annoying as advertised as SATA3 (6GBps)

This is results using Atto Bench32 tool:
Connected to PEXSAT34: write= 217356 read= 410272
Connect to standard SATA3 port on motherboard: write= 533315 read= 557948

I gave it 2 stars as it does work as an extra SATA port card just not at advertised speeds.

Have tried connecting it to PCIe2 slot and PCIe3 slot but still not get anywhere near SATA3 speeds.

Also adds considerable delays to boot times.

Will be returning this to Amazon for refund.

A no fuss - do what it says on the box - product. Running under Win 7 Pro it copes well with 4 x 3 TB SATA drives attached all at 6GBPS - they seem to run fast but I have not measured throughput, but I doubt you will be disappointed.

Although I had an issue installing this addon card at first, the StarTech online support was pretty competent, and helped me with the ideas what to try. It turned out that I have very specific configuration of my motherboard and the device works perfectly fine.
The driver must be downloaded from the site though, but it works fine as expected.
The device is on Marvell chip, so it should not have any other issues in the future as well.

I could not find any other vendor providing such device, and while StarTech was kind of noName to me, I will definitely buy their products again.

So, I Highly recommend this, if You need something like this. The price is good and the quality as well.
Amazon delivered it fast and safe, so the deal was perfect.

Thank StarTech and Amazon!
