Review Date: 02/14/12
Cons: drivers on 64bit were hard to find

Pros: works great to build a large raid setup
Ive had a few driver issues but overall this card worked well on my raid setup for my server

Review Date: 08/08/11
Cons: None

Pros: Great price, compatible
I don't use RAID on this card, but the controller is quite capable of handling standalone drives. Not the fastest speeds but a real lifesaver if you need more SATA ports than your mobo has. Great deal!

Review Date: 01/09/11
Cons: - None!

Pros: - Extra SATA Ports!
I bought this for use in my unRAID server, to get extra SATA ports. I already had the server setup and running. Stopped the server, popped it in, added drives, booted back up with zero issues.

Review Date: 03/24/10
Cons: No weaknesses so far

Pros: Easy to installrecognized by Freenas
I used this card to add disks to my FreeNas server, freenas recognized the card without issue and I now have four drives hanging off of it.I'm using freenas software raid not the board's raid.

Review Date: 01/07/10
Cons: Slow

Pros: Cheap way to add SATA drives to older board
Using this card to add SATA drives to an old mATX board on a Linux file server. Drives are well detected but Linux sees them as IDE drives, so it is slower, but then again, I didnt need speed so I am satisfied with this card.

Review Date: 01/07/09
Cons: Nothing I noticed, but I never tried RAID

Pros: InexpensiveWorks in Linux
I'm just using this a inexpensive way to connect more drives to a mATX board as a Linux server. It seems to have worked out even though I have no plans to make use of the RAID feature on it.

Cons: No SATA2 (not a big issue.) Card RAID implemented in firmware, not hardware.

Pros: Cheap, reliable, well supported under Linux.
I have two of these in a Linux Samba server using MDADM software RAID 5. Software RAID works well with these for a SOHO server.

Review Date: 05/31/08
Cons: "software" raid could be better

Pros: fairly cheapworks as advertised
Its a cheap card to add more drives to a box when absolute performance is not an issue. I would not recommend using the onboard raid, but if you use linux use the in-kernel software raid device.

Review Date: 03/01/08
Cons: 1.5 Gbit/s only.

Pros: It is easy to install and it works as it should.
The older SATA speed rating is not a big deal if you're using it in a server attached through a gigabit LAN as I am.At $37 it is a sweet deal.The installation is smooth. If you're using windows, don't bother with the install CD as Windows update has newer drivers.I have not tried the Software RAID as the storage is pooled in WHS.

Review Date: 02/19/08
Cons: Apparent error message on bootup

Pros: InexpensiveWorks with linux
This works as advertised. It gives you four more SATA ports on your computer. The firmware for configuring raid feels unpolished though, and it gives me an "invalid device" warning on bootup -- it doesn't like my SATA DVD drive. However, it works fine once I boot into linux, so I suspect the error is just related to it detecting devices for the BIOS to boot from.The only minor issue is that I can't get SMART data from my hard disks attached to this controller.

Review Date: 03/05/07
Cons: Non-intuitive layout of SATA connectors and no labeling on the bottom of card as to connector #. Really minor gripe.

Pros: Really economicalWell-supportedGood performance
When building a software RAID solution, these are the cheapest cards I've found. The performance is good, low CPU usage under Linux.Not sure if they support stagger-start, but I doubt it.
