Lycom PE-120 AHCI SATA III-6Gbps Internal 4 Port Low Profile PCIe 2.0 Host Adapter is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as expected Worked first time on the built in Windows 10 drivers, although there is updated drivers on the manufacturers website. This does slightly lengthen your boot process as the card will pop up a screen showing what disks are connected. You may be able to disable this in your BIOS. Worked fine with a DVDR drive as well as multiple harddrives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product at a great price Product was easy to fit and worked immediately without issues.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beware - Unusable for System Drives The card does not have its own BIOS*, so you cannot use it for any disk drive that contains an operating system. (Tested with Windows 7 and OpenSUSE.) This means that you can use the card only for additional data or backup drives. Note (*): Explanation - since there's no BIOS for the card, the computer's BIOS doesn't see any of the attached drives. This means that Windows and Linux will only see it after they have fully started.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Keeps locking up I bought 2 of these for a Home Server, seemed to work fine for a day or 2 then hard drives started freezing and disappearing from my computer. I removed one of the cards to see if i was overloading things but still had problems. I replaced the one card with an old sata2 card i had and no more freezing.

Non RAID? 3-8Tb? Multiple Cards

1) Does this pass through drives in non RAID - I just want a dumb SATA controller... 2) Support 3-8Tb drives? What is the biggest confirmed? 3) Multiple cards work together? I'll need 2 to co-operate and some controllers don't allow that!
Asked by: Methanoid
1) Yes, this just adds SATA prts, no RAID. (I'm using it for Windows Storage Spaces) 2) I'm running a 4TB drive with no issues, I assume it would work fine with larger disks. 3) Don't know, sorry.
