I plugged it in and 4x3T drives came up with Mint16.
It works fine and is properly detected even though I have a Syba PCI card also plugged in.
Things are much easier due to four connectors in a row, facing out when you remove left side of case. This is different to PCI card with SATA connectors in twos on two sides of card.
Works fine in a 16X slot - obviously at 1X speeds.
PM accepted (54.99). This is a stopgap, but the card will still be useful with other boards/computers.
None now. We'll see what happens later because I use SnapRaid with hashes and parity. Errors won't be missed.
Using the card for any sort of striped RAID is beyond foolish. It's too slow and inexpensive. But for a non-striped parity array, or simply adding extra drives, it could be super.
I guess the card keeps working, throws errors or ports stop working. If the latter happens then I will edit. Day one though and everything is working perfectly.
This is a stopgap for me since I've ordered a Supermicro card (8X), but also having this card is pretty cheap insurance for connecting drives and getting at data. 1X is perfectly fast enough for accessing one drive and playing a movie, while performing checks on a whole array at the same time. This card is new to me, but similar PCI cards have worked well for years.
My Sabertooth board has no problems with booting hard drives from it's SATA connectors first, but a few years back adding a Syba card would cause the computer not to boot until a person specified which order to boot, in the BIOS.

Works great for adding SATA ports to an older computer.
Not good as a RAID card.
I bought this to turn an older system into a NAS box for a friend. It worked perfectly fine in JBOD mode but when I decided to try setting up a 4 disk RAID array, it constantly and randomly dropped between 1-2 drives on every reboot despite having the latest drivers and BIOS for the card. Back to JBOD mode and it's a solid performer again.

In summary, if you just want to add some ports, this will work great. If you're looking for a cheap RAID solution, keep looking.

nice and simple way to add sata ports for my custom built WHS
nothing so far
i bought this to add 4 sata ports to my older Windows home server box i built from spare ports

i get decent speed from this card compared to my motherboards sata ports

you can price match this close to $50

a decent raid card for cheap
none at all
bought this to put in a computer i use that only has 2 internal sata ports, this is the easiest way for me to add extra ports withou having ot buy a new board. has suport for raid 0 raid 1 raid 0+1 and raid 5. for the money it was the best way fo r me to go.

Can be used with RAID / Non-RAID bios
Inexpensive way to add 4 SATA ports
Not a true PCIe to SATA card, uses a PCI to PCIe bridge chip.
Wanted to add a few DVD burners to a computer but had already used up the onboard SATA ports. Grabbed one of these and reflashed it using the silicon image Non-RAID bios and it works perfectly.

Does the job
Nothing super special. Just a good standard PCI-E SATA controller. Had to grab the latest drivers for Windows 7 off their website.
