1 out of 5 eggsbad bad bad

Pros: none

Cons: DOA, newegg won't let me return, even within day of receiving. Probably due to the low price. It just wouldn't work, period.

Other Thoughts: To give you an idea of just how cheap this is, I removed my IDE cable after removing the card from my system, the blue plastic on the port actually broke.

1 out of 5 eggsnot reliable

Pros: none

Cons: I was using the card with a couple extra hard drives for a non-raid setup.

had everything installed and drives would both work but after a while both drives would disappear. Had to reboot everytime to get them back.

4 out of 5 eggsGood enough

Pros: Does what it's supposed to.

Cons: Doesn't fit well in my case ("toolless" case), and decided that it wasn't working after about an hour of use, although a driver update from their website seems to have fixed that issue.

Other Thoughts: Bought it solely for the IDE port for a newer mobo to support my aging drive.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks

Pros: It works. Not much problems getting IDE or SATA to work.

Adds a IDE port that I needed for my DVD drive, as well as 2 extra internal or external SATA ports for more HDDs.

Cons: No IDE cable; don't trust the product description.

A bit tight for IDE if your PCI-E x1 port is right next to your GPU set up. Almost direct contact.

Slows down my boot by about 4-5 sec because it goes back into Bios after checking the controller card (i.e. Bios boot --> Controller check --> Bios boot --> Windows). This was true for me since I'm using the IDE to attach a DVD drive, not sure if it's true for using purely SATA. Not really a con, but this can't be disabled in boot order.

Other Thoughts: It takes up 1 PCI Express x1 slot. Card sits well, although a bit close to the GPU.
Enclosed are the controller card, driver install CD, manual, 2x SATA power cable, and 2x SATA data cables. NO IDE. Wonder why they decided not to include it anymore.

The updated manual can be found in the bytecc website.
It's true what they say:
**Jumper settings are 1-2 for Internal SATA and 2-3 for External SATA.**

You'll also need to install the driver (recommend downloading directly from website) since Windows 7 won't automatically recognize it. No biggie.

At this price, you could either get this or the MASSCOOL SATA II brand, but this card a couple more SATA cables for a couple more bucks. Take your pick.

5 stars for working. 1 star off for no IDE cable.

3 out of 5 eggsWrong doc

Pros: Cheap, works good.

Cons: Card does not sit well in slot. Documentation wrong: Jumpers should be the inverse of the description. I requested an RMA before I went and read the reviews completely and found out what I was doing wrong. Frustrating.

Other Thoughts: If it wasn't for the reviews, I would've given this a 1 and returned it. If the documentation was correct, I would've given it 4 starts.

2 out of 5 eggsCould not get it to work

Pros: Cheap. Takes up only PCI-e x1 slot.

Cons: Didn't work. Using Biostar AMD mainboard. Was able to get into Bytecc RAID utility, but system would only come up with NO BOOT DEVICE over and over. Part of the problem may have been that I was sent a used part. The top corner of the manual was stained and ripped off entirely, and signs of handling were evident.

Other Thoughts: Not sure if it was my motherboard (which has been problematic in the past), but despite many BIOS tweaks I could not get my system to boot from this card. Running Windows 7/XP dual boot. But system seemed to fail on boot before even seeking Windows. Mobo recognized card but would not boot from it.

4 out of 5 eggsCould be better

Pros: PCIe, to SATA II. Works most of the time.

Cons: Have had issues with drives attached to this card all of a sudden becoming write protected (Win7 Ultimate). I have had to use different methods to clear this status. This card, IMHO, would not be suitable for a boot drive.

Other Thoughts: Better drivers would be an added touch. Overall, it works for what I need it to, but have had too many headaches associated with this card for only using it three months.

3 out of 5 eggsPhysical Design Issues

Pros: Seems to works okay on Linux (Kernel 2.6.18.x / CentOS 5.x). Hardware and drives are recognized. Cannot comment at this point on stability, reliability, or performance under Linux.

According to the updated manual, available as a PDF on the manufacturer's web site, also supports eSATA / SATA hot-plugging (probably only if the OS also supports it).

Cons: The manual in the package is very confusing regarding Jumper settings. The updated manual PDF on the manufacturer's site is better but it isn't entirely clear either. It would have been much simpler to just say:

(1) All 4 jumpers on each bank of pins must be on the same side of the bank

(2) Each bank of jumpers enables the connector that is nearest to the position of the jumpers.

For example, put all 4 jumpers in the "top" bank on the side near the internal SATA connector to enable the internal SATA connector on the "top" channel.

The eSATA connectors may not line up with the external slot opening on some computer cases. Of course this is somewhat related to how the main board / pci-e slot lines up with the opening in the case, but beware that if the eSATA plug doesn't line up well with the opening, the eSATA cable might not plug in as far as it must in order to work, and it may be possible to short out the connector when hot-plugging.

Other Thoughts: Before deciding that the card isn't working with an eSATA drive, be sure the eSATA cable is plugged in all the way. Many eSATA drive enclosures (for example, a WD MyBook) have a plug opening that is too small for the plug on a typical eSATA cable to be inserted far enough. This eSATA card may not be at fault if a drive is not being recognized.

4 out of 5 eggsAs advertised!

Pros: Low cost
Easy installation
Windows 7-compatibility

Cons: Not the best RAID support (can't expect much from cost level)
Sort of tricky to get internal and external ports working together
