Customer Reviews

Worked great after I pulled my H from my AUsing this to run my old Sans Digital TR8X-B tower. It's tough enough finding an eSATA controller that handles a port multiplier on both ports. It's even tougher finding one that can also run in Windows Server 2012 r2. It's exponentially more difficult when you forget that some ASUS motherboards have a MIO slot that looks exactly like a PCI Express x1 slot!I completely forgot those MIO existed. SMH. Four hours of diagnostics: uninstalling/reinstalling drivers, fiddling with BIOS, flashing BIOS, fiddling with BIOS again. And, the whole time the controller card was sending power to both of the multipliers without registering itself. After I realized what I'd done, I slammed it into an x16 slot, windows booted and all eight drives lit up like a Christmas tree. If it weren't for IT_guy's review I'd probably have given up. Thanks, bud!Anyway, it's working great. I'm running it in a Transparent RAID instead of Storage Spaces (just a personal preference). I'll be upgrading to Server 2016 soon and we'll see how that goes. If I'm still pinching pennies when this stack runs out I'll probably get another one of these controller cards.5Worked perfectly until it failed 40 months after I bought it. So bought another one.Have been using it to control an external drive tower holding a total to 10TB of disc storage (for temporary archiving) via an external eSata cable. The card allows various RAID configurations, and I used it to control two pairs of high quality drives, each configured as dynamic drives under Windows 10 in a Mediasonic Pro box. Have never had a problem with data loss with this setup, as it has shown to be very reliable.But recently noticed that the activity LEDs on the Pro Box went off, and had lost acccess to the stored files.Rebooting the PC only helped restore access for a while, and then after several cycles, access was lost for good. Troubleshooting showed that it was the StarTech controller card that was failing and then died completely.So I just now ordered a replacement PEXESATA32 card, and fully expect it to be back up and running just as happily as before.4Good eSATA Adapter - Windows Server 2016 EssentialsPlugged it into my ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 mobo which is now running Windows Server 2016 Essentials. It saw all 4 drives on my Icy Dock enclosure hooked up via eSATA. I was able to build a software RAID-5 in Disk Management out of the 4 disks OK. All I was looking for in this product was the port multiplier since the eSATA on the motherboard is poo. WinSvrEss2016 saw the adapter no problem and found the drivers on the CD effortlessly.5Easy expansion for new or old systemsSuper easy way to add drives to an old system or a new build. Used this on a new Ryzen 2600x Win10 system with 5 drives already in use by the motherboard. This particular card has 3 SATA ports and an mSATA slot. I'm using it for my BluRay drives which only run at 1.5Gb/s so perfect for not wasting the 6GB SATA III ports on the motherboard. This is basically a Marvell 9230 device, but Marvell's drivers are even older than Startech. The ones on Startech's site are v1.2.0.1041, but you can find v1.2.0.1049 if you use the googles. The utility (from Startech) to manage the device installs a little apache webserver on your computer (localhost:8845) which gives you a bit more diagnostic information.It's also worth noting that because this is a PCI-E 2.0 card, your bandwidth will max out at 5Gb/s - so while perfect for slower devices like optical drives - for SSDs - the card will be your bottleneck (but still faster than any mechanical 7200rpm SATA drive). So if your SSD has a utility it may report that it's not connecting at full SATA3 port, but at a slower SATA2 port.5PEXESAT322I - NOT for OSX.specifically for the PEXESAT322I (2 sata, 2 esata) - this doesnt work with OSX - tested in macpro1,1 with 10.6, and macpro5,1 with 10.10. system profiler and slot utility see it in the slot, but attached drives are not seen (even directly attached to the internal sata ports. and yes, the tested ports are enabled during testing... :). fwiw.the product listings/reviews are pretty confusing since there 7 different products under the same listing - and all the reviews clump together. For future, reviewers, it would help if you specified which model you're discussing... :)3Does not have complete AHCI implementation. Not compatible with modern motherboards.This card has a Marvell 88SE9230 chipset which does not have a complete AHCI (Advance Host Controller Interface) commandset implementation. Newer motherboards that are now AHCI only, such as the ASUS Prime X470-Pro, detect the card, but will not be able to detect the drives. The only way to use this card is in a "Legacy" mode, but then you lose all power management capability. Being that this is the latest card by this manfacturer, I would suggest to look elsewhere, such as LSI alternataves.Update: For modern hardware and Linux, you can add the work-around of iommu=soft to the grub command line. (/etc/defaults/grub in Debian-based). Once you do, you must run update-initramfs and update-grub2 to finalize. This effectively shuts off some of the ATA error reporting, so it is not a great solution, but it does work enough to get the hadware and drives to detect.2Works but sIt works with windows7, but you better download the newest drivers from their website. Yes the device will "work" when you install it with windows generic drivers, but you're transfers will end up being corrupt and windows explorer will crash non stop!So when you get this card, download drivers from their website, power down the system, install the raid card, boot up, windows auto detects, install the drivers you downloaded, reboot and you're good to go after that.So far device has worked well, external read/write speeds of 90MB/s using mechanical drive. I've read many horror stories of addon cards, but so far this has worked great. You get either 2 eSata ports or 2 internal Sata, not both at the same time.5Driver CD is useless visit the website StarTech.comThe driver CD is very cluttered with non related product software and to see complaints from months ago and the fact this company is still shipping these driver CD's with known issues upsets me. I was able to download the driver from their website StarTech.com with no issues. The only other complaint I have is that when I installed this card it now affects my BIOS into searching for a bootable device on it before my HDD which causes my PC to have slower boot times and I do not know how to disable that. It does not appear in my boot orders which is odd.3Good for the pricePros:- low cost RAID controller that works / easy to set upCons- Well, I wouldn't say the data transfer speed is terrible through the RAID card, but it is definitely a little slower than just doing RAID through the integrated RAID controller on the motherboard. I have 4x 4TB WD Red Pro 7200rpm 256MB cache in RAID 10, and write speeds definitely dropped ~20% through this RAID card vs just using onbaord RAID controller. In reality, this is not that big of an issue, since the write speed is still above what my 1-Gbit home network bottlenecks the read / writes to / from my fileserver to which is ~120MB/s.- limited sector size (or whatever the term is) to 64KB when configuring RAID 10 through the BIOS- the SATA ports are a little looser than typical . The cables don't really fit like gloves, but fit looselyOther NotesDuring initial setup, the moment I plugged in the drives to the card, the computer wouldn't post at all, and when I disconnect the drives from the card, the computer boots again just fine. It turned out to be a bad SATA cable - after switching out the cable, boots just fine with minimal delay if any in boot time. Just something to watch out for, as a bad sata cable to a non-boot drive prevents the whole system from posting.4Running Linux? Add iommu=pt to your grub command lineI purchased multiple cards and chipsets to try out with an 8 disk enclosure that has a JMicron535 port multiplier which I'm running ZFS RAIDZ2 on. The StarTech PEXESAT32 was $26, has the Marvell 88SE9230 chipset, 2 ESATA ports but only 1 PCIe lane. By setting iommu=pt (passthru) on the grub command line, the drives in the enclosure were detected transparently. I can see that they are on a specific bus, but otherwise they look as though they are plugged directly into the motherboard and perform the same when used independently. When pushing very large files, I do get 15-20% more throughput to my SSD than I do to the RAID on vial the controller (the individual drives are slow and cannot compete with the SSD) but that might be an artifact of the striping. Since I get *better* performance via this controller to the stripe set when doing 1k 1M files, I'm guessing this is the case.NOTE: The card will only support one port multiplier at a time. However, at this price point I was happy to get two cards and use two PCIe slots which would otherwise sit empty.I tested RocketRAID 622 (terrible returned immediately), RocketRAID 644L, and RocketRAID 642L and am waiting on a couple SIL and ASMedia cards. The Startech PEXESAT32 tested identically on a per-lane basis to the much more expensive RocketRAID cards...but I should mention that althought the 642L and 644L both support multiple lanes and should therefore support multiple port-multipliers, this did not work for me. I did not try to find and custom-compile their drivers because trying to keep up-to-date DKMS versions of unsupported drivers is not something I'm signing up for. I'd rather just buy 2 of the StarTech cards and a couple spares and call it job done.
