Works nicely
This asmedia 1061 based controller works nicely on my pc, no issues so far.Crystaldiskmark indicates 370+mb/s for both sequential read and write, which is the most i would expect off a pci-express rev 2 x1 interface. Having internal sata ports and being configurable is a plus, since i am really using it as an internal controller for the moment. It can as well detect drives attached during boot, although i have not tried booting directly off an external drive.

Easy way to add more ports to a hackintosh
I have this installed in my newly built hackintosh. It worked out of the box with no kext editing or bootloader changes. I moved the jumpers over to the esata position and it sees my external devices with no problems. I don't think mac os x has support for esata hot swapping (as no stock macs include it), so swapping drives is probably out of the question. But i have no need for that. I leave my towerstor ts2ct - 2 bay sata to usb 2.0 / esata / 1394a / 1394b raid enclosure connected 24/7 anyway.The card includes a pass through for the hard drive led so any drive access from the motherboard in addition to the sata card will blink your case drive led. Nice little addition.Update: i should add that i had an issue connecting an lg hd dvd/blu-ray combo drive to this card. The drive was reporting it had a disc in the drive with zero size. Switching to my onboard sata solved the issue. It's possible these have an incompatibly with optical drives. No big deal as i don't know of any which need higher than sata 1.5 gbit, so any onboard controller will work for them.Update 2: it's now about a year later and i needed a second card. I ordered a new one and it's now a basic green pcb with slightly different circuitry. Works exactly the same from what i can tell and uses the same controller. I have uploaded a picture with both.

Plug and play: no driver to install
I was giving new life to a couple of four year old asus p6t deluxe v2 motherboard based systems. The asus p6t deluxe v2's had onboard support for sata ii but i wanted to add sata iiii in order to support a samsung pro 840 ssd at full speed. I just plugged in the syba sd-pex40049 and connected a couple of sata iii drives. I booted the system and all devices were recognized. A quick trip to windows 7 pro disk management to format and assign desired drive letters and the upgrade to sata iii was complete. It was not necessary to install any drivers for the sd-pex40049.I put windows 7, all applications including office 2010, and my outlook data files on the new ssd. I moved all local data files to a western digital black 2 tb hdd and the upgrade was complete. Putting the outlook data files on the ssd makes all mail functions and searches blazing fast.The upgrade of both systems went smoothly.The finished upgrade looks like this:core i7-920 cpu (4 years old)asus p6t deluxe v2 motherboard (4 years old)12 gb of crucial ddr3 1333 ram (4 years old)cooler master 750 w psucooler master haf 912 case2 24x dvd-r'sdrive c: samsung 840 pro 256 gb ssd (windows 7, all applications, outlook.Pst)drive d: western digital black 2 tb hdd (local data)drives e & f: asus dvd-r/cd-r drivesdrive g: western digital 4-disk raid 5 array - wd 1 tb black hdd's (shared data store)drive h: 2 tb wd black hdd (internal backup drive)

Satisfactory for my needs
I replaced another esata card i had recently purchased (which simply fair did not work!) with this one. This one is working fine for me on windows 7 with a unique skylake core i5 (yes i know it's supposedly not supported on windows 7 - but it's working, so there!).I won't name the "other" brand that wouldn't work (actually it worked, but drives would fall offline after 20 to 30 minutes). I chose this one because it used a different controller chip than the first one. What can i say other than it works and that's what i was looking for?I do not care about performance, so this review should not be interpreted as a commentary on how quick it is compared to anything else.

Only two of the four can be active.
Only two of the four can be active.When one sees four ports, one expects all of them be be active in spite of "2 ports" in print. There are more than one version of this card.Also, one would expect since this is an external sata card, the external ports would be jumped to be in use. Wrong! The internal ports were jumpered.There is no name on the box or on the card. No thought if this "syba" name is the company. Hence, no support.And finally, even after switching all eight jumpers over, the external ports still do not work using two different drives and cable combinations.Btw; this does not appear to display in device manager in w7 after you load the driver.
By Tristan Barnaby
Pretty good card but the jumpers documentation is off.
So far the card is working fine. I find it extremely strange though that a card with external ports would be set default to internal. As others have said the instructions that approach with it are very vague. The picture that came for the jumper settings appeared to display it already set on external. However, those did not work and i had to remove the card and change them fair based on other reviewers' feedback and it worked fine after that. I have not tried hooking up more than 1 esata cable to it at a time yet but the one that is goes to a raid box and works fine for picking up the 3 drives that are in the raid.
By Kate Russell
You have to set the jumpers!
After i deciphered that the jumpers came from the factory set to the inward facing connections, and changed them to the rear where i needed them, it worked perfectly. The documentation is awful.
By mike macfarlane
Awesome!
