Product Description

Style: PCI Express to PCI

This PCIe to PCI Adapter Card lets you use low profile PCI expansion cards in a server or desktop motherboard PCI Express slot. Compliant with PCI Express Specification 1.0a and PCI Specification 2.2, the adapter card connects through a PCIe 1x slot to provide a low profile PCI slot in its place. A spare full size bracket for PCI Express card is also included for use in larger desktop or server PCI Express slots. A versatile solution, the adapter card converts PCIe to PCI or PCI-X; a built-on LP4 power connector links the card to the computer power supply, allowing you to install universal voltage PCI cards (3.3V/5V).The adapter card offers an economical solution that lets you extend the usability of older or extra PCI Bus cards in newer PCIe capable systems. To ensure suitable installation in any low profile server or desktop computer, the PCIe/PCI adapter features an innovative bracket design that adapts and secures the low profile PCI or PCI-X card into the converted slot.

Everything is working fine.

My problem came about when trying to use the PEX1PCI1 card with the Audigy 2 ZS in it AND the Promise SATA controller card in the PCI slot on the ASROCK H67M.

Style Name: PCI Express to PCI Verified Purchase
This adapter definitely works as advertised. I was using an M-Audio Delta 1010LT audio card installed in an an older Dell XP-based computer at church to do multi-channel recording of the worship service. My card was fitted with the (old style) PCI interface. I updated the machine to a Dell Inspiron 660 Windows 8 box. The new computer did not have any (legacy) PCI slots, just the new style PCI Express (PCIe) slots. The StartTech PEX1PCI1 allowed me to fit the M-Audio into the new computer with very little effort. Everything is working fine.

Style Name: PCI Express to PCI Verified Purchase
I do not write reviews very often. I felt compelled to write one for the PEX1PCI1 in hopes it will help others.

Background:

I purchased the PEX1PCI1 to overcome my motherboard's limited PCI slot issue. Most motherboard manufacturers are slowly phasing out PCI slots and adding PCIe slots. My ASROck H67M motherboard only has one PCI slot. The PCI slot is populated with my Promise SATA controller card to control 4 of the 5 hard drives in my software Raid-5. I also wanted to use my Audigy 2 ZS sound card. In comes PEX1PCI1 from stage right to possibly fix my problem. The computer I am using the PEX1PCI1 in runs Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit.

Problem:

Based upon another review mentioning the PEX1PCI1 working in Linux, I decide to buy this and give it a go. I did realized the PEX1PCI1 is low profile and did not have a problem with that for what I was doing. I used this in my Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit computer. My problem came about when trying to use the PEX1PCI1 card with the Audigy 2 ZS in it AND the Promise SATA controller card in the PCI slot on the ASROCK H67M. I am not sure what was conflicting, but the sound card was not being recognized. The PEX1PCI1 was being recognized, but not the Audigy 2 ZS that was in it.

Here is the kicker: if I unplugged the 5th hard drive of the Raid-5 array (which was plugged into the H67M's SATA connector) the sound card would be recognized and work perfectly. Of course this meant I could no longer access my files which I wanted to use. I powered down my pc and reconnected the 5th raid hard drive to the H67M's SATA connector. I powered the pc on once again, what do you know the raid is seen and the sound card is no longer functioning.

Style Name: PCI Express to PCI Verified Purchase
This PEX1PCI1 adapter might work perfectly fine in your system, but beware! It may mysteriously disable other peripheral devices in your 64-bit capable system.

This adapter was purchased to adapt an RME PCI host card to a PCIe based system running Windows 7 Pro 64-bit on a H67 Sandybridge mobo with 16GB RAM, and three SATA 3 drives. The RME card is a low-profile card, and fits in the adapter with room to spare with the end plate removed. Great! This saved me having to shell out $500 for a new RME card.

Wait... Where'd my network card go?

The adapter disabled the Realtek Gigabit Ethernet adapter built into the mobo!

After some slot juggling, several reboots, and some scans with PCIScope, I discovered the PEX1PCI1 uses a *32-BIT* Pericom PCI bridge, which is very picky where it lives in a 64-bit environment, and to make the problem worse, it requests a 1M memory window from the BIOS. This means it doesn't play nice with 64-bit systems, and can disable other devices in the system.

The RME card works fine in my system with I hacked-together PCIe bridge made with a PLX PEX8111 demo board, and it works perfectly, even at 32 samples buffers. Only problem is it's big and has to sit outside the case.

Back it goes...

Style Name: PCI to PCI Express Verified Purchase
I purchased this even though there were several negative reviews of this item. I needed to use a spare PCI slot for my Ceton Infinity 4 Cablecard tuner and was concerned this wouldn't support the high bandwidth requirements of the cablecard tuner. To my shock, it works perfectly. Once I swapped my cablecard tuner to a low profile bracket and mounted it on top of the Startech adapter, it fit in my case perfectly and performs perfectly as well. No software required and once booted, simply reboot after windows installs the drivers. I must say--I'm very happy this works. I'm running windows 7 x64 and have not had any lockups either...so not sure what everyone else is talking about.

Style Name: CardBus to ExpressCard Verified Purchase
It was with great hesitation, that I ordered this product. I'd read many reviews about it - stating that it was "wobbly" and didn't do the job at all.

Well - for us - it worked first-time - right out of the box ... and has continued to function perfectly, ever since.

Yes - I agree that "because of it's size", it sticks out of the ExpressCard slot - and could get "knocked-around" a bit. That's something to watch out for. What we did though - was place two CD-cases underneath the adapter - and next to the laptop. That prevents us for accidentally "knocking it around" and dislodging it (or worse) !!

It works perfectly well for us - and we're very pleased with it !!

I purchased this adapter in order to mount the P2 cardbus cards used for my video productions but found after repeated tries that neither the old A Series nor the newer E Series cards would mount using this adapter. Waste of money if you're trying to use them in your video workflow.
