1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: W7 recognized IDE drive right after installing drivers

Cons: Continuous BSODs. Even after installing drivers. Tried pulling card out, starting computer, shutting down, putting card back in. One reviewer mentioned using "Last good known configuration" - seems they got rid of this in W7? I only had the options of Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, Normal Windows.

Ended up just ordering an external enclosure. Sure wish motherboards just came with at least 1 IDE plug these days.

1 out of 5 eggsWORS PCI-e Card EVER

Pros: Extra SATA Ports

Cons: This is the worst Expansion card i ever bought, every time i turn on the computer have to power down and touch the card and turn the computer back on to use peripherals connected to it. During use of the devices connected, would randomy loose connection, and device would completely disapear from Device manager, and PC Would Freeze

Other Thoughts: DO NOT BUY

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: works fine after installing drivers from Masscool's website

Cons: very stupid pata port orientation

Will give you a 0x07b bsod on boot if you try to use it before installing the drivers. It will constantly give you that even if you unplug the device until you select "use last known good configuration"

Other Thoughts: I'm guessing this issue is only for vista/win 7 users cause those are the only drivers being hosted on their website.

3 out of 5 eggsJust know befor you buy

Pros: Once you have it, and the drivers installed, It does what it is supposed to do, and does it well. That aspect of this add-on card makes it worth the price, and for that matter its a realy low price to be able to do all of what it does.

Cons: A. There are no directions in the package.

B. If you are not vert tech savy... find some one who is because you will need there help.

C. The driver disk included does NOT have the drivers needed for any vertion of windows 7 even though is is win7 compatable. (you have to go to the masscool site to get win7 drivers)

D. Pray to what ever deatie you choose to beleave in that you do not need to call masscool tech support unless you happen to speak lebanise and/or possably hungarian. If all you speak is english and/or bad english like myself, you will have more trouble understanding the tech support personel than you are alreadt having in just getting the drivers installed correctly.

Other Thoughts: To help those not savy in tech, here is the summery on driver installing for win7 since more and more of us are using 7 as is.....
Download it from there site. (Make sure you alread have WinRaR downloaded and installed on your pc or you wont be able to open it)
Once saved... use WinRaR to extract it (ita a RaR zipped file)
Burn the extracted file and its contence to a blank cd or flash drive, then exit out of every thing you have open at that time.
Open the file from your newly burned cd or flash drive...
Select open the files and look for the one with the words setup and exe in it...
Double click it, and that will open the driver wizard from the file.....
From that point just follow the prompts and you should be good.
Here is the reason teachers always say read the whole thing befor you start....
Make sure you physicaly install the device (card) befor you run the setup or it will tell you the device is not there, and demand you close it.

1 out of 5 eggsWell designed paper weight

Pros: looks nice

Cons: Unfortunately, the "designers" at Masscool neglected to account for the fact that when an IDE cable is attached to the IDE port, which is angled perpendicular to the card instead of angled out, you will have extremely tight clearance between the adapter and any other card installed in the immediately adjacent slot. Amusingly enough, the SATA connectors are done correctly.

In my case, the only PCI-E x1 slot is directly above my PCI-E x16 slot. Even more unfortunate, a screw on the back of my video card is in the exact wrong location and I am completely unable to seat this adapter.

Other Thoughts: Beware purchasing this for systems that have cards installed in the slot directly below the intended slot for this adapter.

1 out of 5 eggsUpdate

Pros: This is an update to my last review. I still see no real pros.

Cons: One bad drive brought down both channels on the card.

Other Thoughts: After getting my RAID back up using another machine, and getting a SIL3132-based replacement card, I moved all the drives back over to the intended machine and everything was OK - for a short time. Then one of the two new drives in the SIL3132 failed. Some experiments later with this old card, and I found that it worked just fine with only the good drive attached, but with the bad drive also attached neither port would work.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card For The Price

Pros: This card does everything it is suppose to do. Tried it in Non Raid, Raid , dvd burner, and it all works. No problems at all. Installed on Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit without any issues.

Cons: Not really a con, but had to download the drivers from the website. But I do that with everything I buy. Because there are usually updated drivers on the manufacturers site.

Other Thoughts: Would recommend this to anybody.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible for Linux, do not buy!

Pros: This card does not have any pros that I can see. I did not attempt to use the PATA port, so perhaps that works, but the SATA ports are unstable under Linux (2.6.35-gentoo-r12 kernel) in whichever PCIe slot I placed it. I really wish I'd had some time to research before I opted for this and I may yet try to return it (even though the shipping hardly makes it worthwhile for whomever ends up paying it.)

Cons: I bought this along with two 2TB SATA drives. The card could see the drives (as /dev/sde and /dev/sdf) and it allowed me to partition them too. After a few reboots, I started mdadm to expand my RAID5 into them and then things started to go very wrong. Within 5 minutes the first drive dropped off the card, a few minutes later the other did too. I rebooted, the drives appeared again, and mdadm continued reshaping until the drives again dropped off under the load. Seeing log entries like "ata8.00: exception Emask 0x0 SAct 0x0 SErr 0x0 action 0x6 frozen", "failed command: FLUSH CACHE EXT" and "softreset failed (1st FIS failed)" does not inspire confidence.

Thankfully I was able to recover the RAID by moving all the drives in the set to another machine (that had 6 SATA ports and just needed an OS.)

This experience was quite annoying and wasted more time than I should have needed to spend on what would normally have been one mdadm command, followed by 20+ hours of unattended reshape.

Other Thoughts: This is my first ever bad review; I've never been annoyed enough before.

The RAID was (nightly and incrementally) backed up, so no actual data would have been lost if I'd not managed to recover, well, assuming the backup archives are sound.

This could just be a faulty card, but online searches I've done since suggest that JMB363 is buggy, and that there are no Linux driver work-arounds for it (generic libata is supposed to work fine, but clearly didn't in my case.)

The win drivers that came with the card may be fine, I have no way to know. There's also a chance that a BIOS update exists, so I'll look into that. Perhaps I'll also check the driver source and debug it to find out what went wrong (assuming I don't return the card.)

If you're trying to find a card for Linux, especially one that may be under a high load, such as when re-building a RAID - do yourself a huge favor and get anything else! I have a SIL3132 based card on its way, hopefully that will be better.

2 out of 5 eggsWindows 7 64 bit issues

Pros: It looks nice...

Cons: couldn't get any drivers for windows 7 64bit to get the IDE working. I wanted to hook up 1 hard drive to it & spent a good 2 hours fooling with it, but to no avail

Other Thoughts: It sounds like a good card from the other reviews, but i think it's still pretty flaky with Win7 drivers
