Easy to setup and works like a charm

on 8/12/2009

It took me less than 5 minutes to install the driver and plug-in the card and connect the drive. Works like a charm. I don't have much to compare it with in terms of performance, bit it seems to be quite fast. Read More

Great performance, great hardware; happy customer

by A customer on 11/14/2010

I bought this along with one of StarTech's eSATA external RAID enclosures (S352U2RER) for backups of a new ThinkPad. Buy.com delivered as promised, without a hitch. So far (several months), the results are even better than I hoped. You can read a more complete write-up of my experience here http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/X-Series-ThinkPad-Laptops/Seeking-advice-X201s-external-storage-eSATA-ExpressCard-Ultrabay/m-p/296680#M18629 I'm getting over 100 MB/s for some real-world copies, about 61 MB/s for a 74 GB backup. My external setup actually runs slightly faster than my laptop's internal hard drive. This was a relatively inexpensive way to add eSATA speed (ExpressCards are a decent value these days) and RAID reliability to my laptop. I called StarTech several times (for general questions about setup and operation of the two products). Real people answer the phones, and they either know the answer or quickly ask someone who knows. Their support is better than I've experienced in many years. If you can't tell, I'm pleased with these two purchases. Read More
