The PEXSAT32 2-Port PCI Express SATA 6 Gbps (SATA 3.0) Controller Card offers simple connectivity between a host computer and SATA 3.0 devices - a cost-effective solution for connecting high-speed storage, such as High RPM Hard Drives and Solid State Drives (SSD), which in turn allows for easier data backups and archiving.

With full support for SATA 3.0 hard drives and data transfer speeds of up to 6 Gbps, the adapter card features a native PCI Express single chipset that provides enhanced compatibility, reliability and performance for external SATA 600 MB/s storage needs.

The controller card is backward compatible with SATA 2.0 devices, providing the versatility to use older storage, and features support for RAID 0 and 1 modes as well as port multiplier capability with command-based and FIS-based switching for connecting multiple external hard drives to a host PC through a single SATA connection.

A dual profile solution, the SATA 3.0 controller card includes a low profile/half-height bracket for installation in slimline or small form factor computer cases.

  • Ships with a full profile bracket install, low profile included

I bought a Samsung SSD to speed up boot times in my 5 yr old Win 7 PC, which only supports SATA2, so I bought this SATA3 card from Amazon to get the best from the SSD. Make sure you insert the Startech card in a PCIe Rev 2 x16 slot, otherwise you won’t get the best SSD speed benefits. Fortunately I had one, and it physically installed easily. Win 7 did NOT automatically install the driver software (Startech say it will), so I'd downloaded the latest driver from Startech's web site and had it ready to install. Windows eventually conceded that the adaptor driver was working correctly. With the new SSD plugged into this card, boot times are now blindingly quick. I've seen no stability problems so far after a few day's operation. This card adds about 10 seconds to the boot sequence while the driver is loaded, but even with this, the PC is now useable after 75 seconds instead of seven minutes, so the card seems to be working well. Brilliant.
