This review is from: Koutech IO-PESA234 PCI-Express 2.0 Low Profile SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Dual Channel Controller Card w/ HybridDrive Support
Pros: Paired this with Mushkin Chronos Deluxe's it worked as a boot drive in my 780iFTW. Installed 7 with no problems.
Cons: Had weird lagg type issues when installing software or loading large files. Come to find out it was this controller. Finding drivers for this thing is a joke. Their website is not at all helpful. In the downloads section of their site it doesn't even list this as a product!
On top of that the Marvell software interface for windows just randomly stopped seeing this card in the system. When the software cant see it you cant manage the Hybrid RAID.
Other Thoughts: Replaced this with an Adaptec 6405. Which yes is a more expensive controller but clearly you get what you pay for. I am just bummed that I cant return this thing anymore. I have had many Adaptec products. Yes their firmware takes forever to boot at POST. BUT THEY WORK!!
