5 out of 5 eggsGreat Price For Additional SATA

Pros: Popped it in and computer saw it right away. Using in Win 7 64 bit and had to go to device manager and click update driver and search automatically which ended up finding it without issues. I didnt have a cd-rom drive to use the CD that came with it and the sites software was not installing easily enough. After it was installed it saw the 2 additional drives right away and everything else worked as usual. Whole process took about 10 minutes.

Cons: Only complaint I would have is that the box when it arrived looked opened and the card its self had some capacitors that looked bent like it took a beating either during delivery or just cheap design. Since there are no problems with the actual card I will not say its been something thats effected me in any way though.

Other Thoughts: Needed this card to add additional SATA ports for more internal hard drive space. I am not using this for RAID in any way, just additional hard drives. I am using 3tb size drives and they are working perfectly. I know it was mentioned it supported up to 2tb so I just wanted to confirm it works beyond that.

5 out of 5 eggsSupports up to 3 TB according to manufacturer

Pros: Works with NAS4free, Plug and play (did not install any drivers), Works with 2 TB well

Cons: One card had a bad SATA cable which caused a bunch of headaches, Sometimes during boot on one of my machines only one card shows up and I have to reboot it again and it's fine.

Other Thoughts: have two NAS4free Servers that are 1st generation P4. One runs all the time and the other is a back up (no RAID just JOBD). Each of these has two of these cards installed. They both have 6 x 2TB Seagates and work beautifully for streaming media. I wanted to know if they worked with larger drives but could not find any info all over the web so I wrote the Manufacturer and I got this response:

Subject : RE: Masscool PCI Card, 4 internal SATA Model XWT-RC040

4 out of 5 eggsIncredible 4 Slot Expansion SATA Card!!!

Pros: This is a PCI Card Serial ATA Rev. 1 with 4x SATA ports! Supports ATAPI devices great if you planning on adding DVD or any ROM Drives! Not to mention the price is just right... i bought Item#: N82E16815158090 for $120.00 and this card does more that the high priced one ( i have it sitting on my self collecting dust until i find a use for it).

Cons: I had a terrible time installing this card with the drivers supplied. I ended up finally installing the drivers and getting this card to read all 4 DVD/BR drives i added to my system after i downloaded the most recent and compatible drivers for WIN 7 64bit, going into the BIOS and resetting the PNP resource data. In the end this card is working just fine and im burning DVDS 5 at a time with 4 ROMs on this card and 1 on my mother board... also this package only come with 2 SATA cables... you would think if you selling a 4x SATA card you would include enough cables for 4 devices...

Other Thoughts: Don't let my installation stor turn you away from buying this card since i have a complicated and maxed out system you might find yourself installing the drivers just fine.

4 out of 5 eggsdecent sata expander

Pros: added four sata slots, no loss of speed.

Cons: can't get the raid load screen to not show up. only lasts a few seconds, but is really killing the bonus time my raptor may or may not be getting from the 10k rpm.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes its job!

Pros: Used in RAID 1 on old P4 3.0 for media storage. OS wa on a ATA drive, used this to put two 320gb sata drives in raid 1.

Cons: Didn't install itself.

Other Thoughts: Installed card, then installled drivers from windows. The hooked up Hdd's and was prompted to set up raid on restart. Easy Set up, working great.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for the extra SATA ports

Pros: -easy to install and attach secondary drives to
-hot swaps like a boss

Cons: -difficult to get booting from
-RAID is extremely slow, maxing out at around 90 MB/s

Other Thoughts: Overall I don't regret purchasing this card because it does everything I needed it to. I was disappointed at the RAID performance however -- if that's what you're looking for, look elsewhere.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes the job I asked it to

Pros: I am running Ubuntu 8.04.3 on an old DFI LanParty board that I am using as a file server (my old gaming rig that was downgraded to server duty). I have two of these installed running 7 drives ranging from 500GB to 1.5TB. They required no special care in installation...simply plug them in, plug the drives in, and the OS reads the drives. Adding the second card was just as simple, as was adding more drives over the years.

Cons: Only supports SATA 1.

Other Thoughts: I have not attempted to run the boot disk from one of these, and I have not attempted to run a RAID setup on them. Only reason I wouldn't buy another is the lack of support for SATA 2 or 3.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible!!!!!

Pros: Hadn't had a chance to find out.

Cons: On the card, where the chipset is soldered to the board, there is a major scratch. The connections are all mangled up. This should never have cleared QA. I am not risking putting it into my system! RMA'd it immediately. Also on the manual, it says SERELIAL instead of SERIAL!!! Gives you a warm cozy feeling, right!

Other Thoughts: On hindsight, might be better to get 2, 2 port cards rather than 1, 4 port card. Just to distribute the bandwidth more evenly.
