3 out of 5 eggsWorks on FreeBSD & Ubuntu

Pros: Cheap. Plug-and-Play. No driver is need on FreeBSD and Ubuntu.

Cons: I was planning to connect four SanDisk 4GB Extreme CF cards using this device. They all work fine individually (with perfect SMART status). However only one is recognized when I plugged all into the card. The other three are shown as detective / hardware failure.

Interestingly, when I connected three CF cards that are smaller than 2GB. They all worked fine. I suspect that only 1 channel support larger than 4GB.

If you are thinking to build a software RAID (e.g., ZFS, Mdam) out of your CF cards using this card, forget it. The performance is poor and the speed is low.

5 out of 5 eggsGot it to work!

Pros: Price, fair quality construction. Works nicely once installed. I'm a happy camper after the installation adventure.

Cons: Poor instructions. Unclear how to set up raid; no software seems to be provided. Two layers of drivers had to be installed. Had to "fish" for drivers by reading chipset lettering and guessing at folders. Apparently bumped drivers off another card and the on-board LAN. That was a bit rude! Running Windows 2000 - I know, how quaint.

Other Thoughts: IMPORTANT! Occupy slot J1 first if using less than all four slots! This cost me a good hour of fumbling and head-scratching!

5 out of 5 eggsLinux Friendly

Pros: First, it works in Linux. It will allow up to 4 CF cards. Bootable.

Cons: Fake RAID not Real RAID. No big surprise. Most motherboards have the same problem. But for the price, what do you expect?

Other Thoughts: Using a 133X CF for the boot partition, and a pair of 80X for the OS, Mint Linux 7 Gnome is 17 seconds from Grub Menu to Login prompt on AMD AthlonFX CPU and 2GB RAM. That's fast. Linux Users remember to mention Linux Feedback on your reviews!
