5 out of 5 eggsWorks well

Pros: Adds a PATA port

Adds a connector for another HDD LED

Adds a SATA port

Adds an eSATA port

Has on-board BIOS - bootable

Reasonably fast - getting 395MB/S sequential reads & 280MB/S sequential writes with a 240G Crucial MX100 on an A88X motherboard with an A10-7800 Kaveri

Robust and stable - plug it in, hook up drives, and it just works. This is my second Marvell based SATA 6Gb card and the other one is the same way. The same can't be said for other market offerings with different chips though, believe me, some of these cards are flaky.

Cons: I can't get into it's BIOS utility - the screen says hit ctrl-M during boot but it ignores me and goes ahead and boots up. However, there may be a good reason for that: If it's like the Rosewill RC-225 I have in another system (same Marvell chip), the only thing you can do in the BIOS utility is RAID setup anyway (AHCI is always-on). Since I've only got one drive attached, it might just be ignoring me for that reason. Given that possibility, I didn't think it was fair to knock off an egg for this.

x1 slots are not quite as fast as SATA 6Gb, so ideally this would be an x4 or greater board. Don't expect it to be as fast as a good motherboard SATA 6Gb port in AHCI mode. Still, it's not bad. Obviously I didn't knock off an egg for this as I knew it going in.

Other Thoughts: This board is low-cost and it solved multiple problems for me:

1) For some reason, my OS won't boot off my motherboard SATA if I put it in AHCI mode. It gets most of the way through the boot process and blue screens. Yes, the correct driver is on the OS. But anyway, it boots fine through this board, and picks up about 100MB/S of sequential read speed as compared to the motherboard SATA in IDE mode.

2) My case has two HDD LED's, and I have two drives, and by running one of my drives off this board and the other off the motherboard SATA, I'm able to hook up both LED's. Minor point, I know, but I like being able to see which HDD is being accessed.

3) One of my optical drives is PATA. Of course, motherboards with PATA ports have gone the way of the dinosaur, and after a recent motherboard upgrade, I wasn't able to hook up this optical drive anymore. This card solved that problem nicely, and it works great.

4) I now have an eSATA port, should I ever need it ... never mind that USB3.0 has virtually obsoleted eSATA, and I've never had much luck with eSATA anyway. It's there though if I ever want it.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works great for eSATA transfers on a motherboard with no eSATA port. Added bonus of IDE controller for connecting old drives for data transfers or reusing an old PATA DVD drive.

Cons: Marvell controller is a little harder to find drivers for compared to the old Jmicron one I had that's now discontinued (or not sold here).

Other Thoughts: For the price, it's a very versatile add-on card. I needed an eSATA controller and bought this one due to the IDE controller. Would definitely buy again. Make sure you save the CD that comes with the card because drivers are hard to find.
