Useful for test systems...

By: coppergrease - 03-14-2016
I have been using one of the 2 slot PCI and 2 slot PCIe cages for some time now in order to use National Instruments test cards in a portable manner. The PCI cards tend to be cheaper, but you don't want them blocking up PC space. This allows me to move the cards, use an external power supply to support them and keep the PC clean. Fantastic product. Well made too, if you ignore the overspray internally. My only complaint, it's expensive!

it does not work

By: advanced Measuring - 07-04-2018
We bought this to be able to use 2 PCI boards we have but after we connected everything as indicated in the manual Windows will still not see those boards even if we installed those boards inside the PC.

Works well. Needed to dig online for help.

By: bjlinma - 02-26-2021
This worked first try with my National Instruments PCI-GPIB card but the NI PCI-MXI-2 card required a lot of research to get working. The key was to turn off PCIe power management in BIOS. The PCIe interface card would go into low power mode and I would loose contact with the PCI card in the extender box. I also set PCIe Native Control to disable ( in Windows, as Admin, RUN -> bcdedit /set pciexpress disable ).
