5 out of 5 eggsReliable Card

Pros: Great if you need lots of Sata Ports for Software Raid, Reliable, Easy to install

Cons: None! Only I wish it were hardware raid for this price :)

Other Thoughts: I've been running this for a few years now and it's been running without a hiccup.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks with 3tb drives

Pros: Inexpensive for the number of ports, though I would have been happier if my m1015 worked. Works with openindiana without any additional drivers.

Cons: pcix (not really a con but something to be aware of) and 3gb/s, 6 ports instead of 8

Other Thoughts: The cons arent really cons, just something to be aware of as this is older hardware. Using one of these until I can get one of my 2 ibm m1015's working or a replacement, 6gb/s and PCIE would speed things up a good bit. Using a mix of hitachi and toshiba 3tb drives (total of 10) with zfs. was previosuly using with some 1tb drives, happy it worked with the 3tb's.

4 out of 5 eggsTHIS IS PCI-X

Pros: Well reviewed. Comes with 8 sata cables.

Cons: This is PCI-X which I'd never heard of until it arrived on my doorstep. I was attempting to build a 10 drive server machine out of my old hardware and my motherboard does not have a PCI-X slot.

4 out of 5 eggsGets the job done

Pros: Works with Server 2008, 2008 R2 and 2012! Does not conflict with onboard RAID or SATA.

Cons: Software only RAID, so it's limited to RAID levels 0/1/5.
PCI-X

Other Thoughts: I was having a tough time trying to get an Adaptec or LSI PCI-e RAID adapters to work on my new 2012 build. Both cards were a few years old, but I wanted H/W RAID and onboard memory. Neither of these cards played well with my onboard SATA. After 2 days of mucking around, I remembered I had this old card in inventory. Plugged it in and BAM! (after I loaded the Sonnet Tempo SATA Gen2 PCI-X adapter driver). Performance isn't as good as a full H/W RAID solution, but I was able to get the capacity I was looking for.

4 out of 5 eggsGood controller

Pros: Worked right out of the box without any configuration hassles. Windows 7 doesn't have a driver for this card so I had to load it from the driver CD. After that it was smooth sailing installing Windows and configuring the applications on the machine.

The controller being PCI-X really makes a difference over PCI. Even with a single drive, performance is way better since you aren't bottlenecked to 133 MB/s of a regular PCI slot.

Cons: No hardware RAID support, but for this price with this many SATA ports I really can't complain. I think the only issue I had was the SATA connectors aren't secured to the card very well and require you hold the connector while plugging the drives in.

Other Thoughts: I bought this controller, along with a Western Digital Red 1 TB drive to breathe a few years of additional life into an aging Dell Precision 650 WS for a customer. It was pressed into service as a security DVR for IP cameras and is performing the task stellarly.

The customer is happy they saved money over buying a whole new server and I'm happy that it wasn't a huge headache to do, it was a win-win situation.

4 out of 5 eggsgreat buy for 8 ports, very dated

Pros: 8 ports, very cheap. good support in solaris/OI because the chipset was used by sun in storage appliances (x4500 i think?)

Cons: at least on the motherboards i've used, the pci-x bandwidth is a really serious bottleneck.

i found the linux drivers to be buggy. IIRC the device architecture split the 8 ports into two groups. there was a bug that would reset channels if you didn't have ports from both halves populated. there were other problems, one of them caused some data loss for me. this was maybe 3 or 4 years ago. switched to solaris.

Other Thoughts: with the 15 spindles i have attached to two of these, with an infiniband card on the same bus, i would see about a 4x throughput improvement just by switching to pci-e

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: I have this card sitting in my openmediavault server powered by ASUS AT5NM10-I mobo. The card runs great in a non PCI-X (32bit) slot no questions asked. Just plug and play. It will run slower in a 32bit slot but as for me just to serve up files I do not notice it. Runs great with MDRAID 5. Also the card is plug and play with Debian. Great buy for a home server.

Cons: None really. A tad long and could see where it could be awkward to install on some rigs. Not a con though. A bit bendy under tension.

Other Thoughts: Be careful, this card is very flexible if its inserted into a 32bit slot. The weight and tension of the sata cables can make the card sag. Be sure the cables are supported or suspened to take the tension off the card.

5 out of 5 eggsNot sure but it works!

Pros: I bought this card in order to expand the amount of HDDs I could have in my case. Now I no longer have an issue with SATA ports, I ran out of power cables lol.

- Easy install (works in a PCI Slot)
- Comes with SATA cables! (darn good value)
- Works! (this I must explain more)

Cons: Install was both easy and not so easy. It is very easy to put into the computer and hook up, but I found getting it to work to intially be a chore. However, after I got it to work, I've never had an issue since and I don't even need to install drivers after each format, the drives just appear after updates finish.

Other Thoughts: Compare to value and costs, this is a dang good product and I am completely satified that I made a good choice. I wish I were better at working the hardware for the initial install, but it has worked perfectly since.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat, low cost board, works out of the box

Pros: A 64bit PCI-X SATA drive board, will function in a standard 32bit PCI slot. Drivers preloaded by Windows Home Server 2011, nothing else to add. Six SATA drives plugged in and recognized after restart. Took me less than 5 minutes to plug in.

Cons: Not compatable with a PCI-e slot. Entirely different animal. Make sure you have at least a free PCI slot.

Other Thoughts: A great solution to extend limited numbers of PCI slots to support multiple SATA drives for a killer consumer-level server.

5 out of 5 eggs20% Cooler

Pros: *Adds 8 SATA-II Ports to you're PCI-X (133Mhz) Equipped Server.
*Has pretty LEDs for Drive/Activity (With Pin-outs for added LEDs!)
*Works with Ubuntu Server 10.04.4 x86
*100+ MB/s to SATA-II Drives
*Option for low-profile
*Software RAID or JBOD
*Server is now 20% "Cooler"

Took a bit of working to get it to show up (My BIOS was hiding the card's BIOS screen), but got it installed and was 100% plug-and-play for my OS (Didn't install a single thing!)

Right now i am running 4x SATA/SATA-II drives in a JBOD configuration (soon to be 8x!).

I am currently running this in my home server, which has the duties of backups, streaming music/video, A TeamSpeak 3 server, and a minecraft server (Just to name a few). So far i have had no problems and it looks to be a great little card for this type of thing.

Cons: The ONLY thing i don't like is that the SATA ports on the back are upside-down. So it makes it a bit difficult to wire-tie the cables together, but even knowing that i would still buy 100 more if i had the money :)

Other Thoughts: My motherboard isn't the newest thing on the block (Intel SE7501BR2), but this card works great and adds the much needed SATA ports to this board. I get around 100MB/s transfer over Gigabit using SAMBA, which puts my 42MB/s i got with my other to shame.

If you're looking for a PCI-X RAID/JBOD card with 8 SATA-II ports, look no further. This is the best (and only) PCI-X SATA-II card with 8 ports for under $100.
