5 out of 5 eggsFast Enough

Pros: Did NOT mess up boot order. Works with Hotswap! just fine, probably because of Silicon Image chipset. That's a big deal when using XP and reinstallation in AHCI is NOT an option... 8^)

Cons: must... have... more... power...

Other Thoughts: An earlier review had me concerned, but definitely no bios incompatibility on oldish AM2+ MSI board. Made it possible to evict pcie-1x Sil Image Sata II to make room for USB3.0, which was it's own adventure (but works fine now).

No problem achieving steady transport over 110MB/s, so drives and not card a limiting factor in my applications. Wouldn't expect it to be adequate for connecting a RAID box, but no one should. Well, maybe a slow box then... 8^Þ

5 out of 5 eggsIt works and the price was right!

Pros: I was looking for a low profile PCI SATA controller card so I could add a third drive to my Dell C521. This card does what was required at the right price for my budget. A nice fit for the Dell's slender tower.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Installation couldn't have been easier. Swapped the shipped bracket for the low profile one and installed. After boot up, Windows 7 automatically installed the correct drivers and the card was working. Simple as that.

A thumbs up to Newegg as well. Their current pricing made this a very doable project.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Price (I paid less for this when it was on sale a year ago)

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I've used this primarily for the eSATA port, but the internal SATA port has been handy for testing bad controllers on motherboards. In a perfect world, it would've had more ports on it, but for the price I paid I can't complain.

3 out of 5 eggsWorks

Pros: Works for connecting a SATA device to a motherboard that only has IDE.

Cons: Card doesn't work for installing a fresh copy of Windows XP. I had to install Windows on an IDE hard drive and then install the drivers for the card from the CD. Then I had to clopy the contents of the IDE hard drive to the SATA hard drive with a Linux LiveCD.

Other Thoughts: Buy this bi-directional IDE to SATA converter instead http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812186078

5 out of 5 eggs3tb drive support

Pros: Works with old machines. 3tb drive support. Easy install.

Cons: Only one internal port.

Other Thoughts: I added this to a Dell Dimension 2350 with a 3tb external drive attached to the eSATA port. Upon bootup, Window 7 automatically installed the drivers and the drive was recognized. In Disk Manager, the wizard prompted for a Guid Partition Format, and a "quick format" later, all 3tb of the drive was available.

Considering the problems some folks with expensive Dell workstations have had getting 3tb drives recognized, I find this remarkable.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Instantly recognized both by my motherboard (ASUS M4A89TD) and my Linux installation.

I was able to boot off an optical drive that was plugged into it, unlike with some cards that have RAID controllers.

The price is right.

Came with a low-profile PCI shield, if you want to install this in a low profile case.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: It's old-school PCI, not PCI express.

5 out of 5 eggsJust worked

Pros: Installed without fuss
Inexpensive and very good value

Cons: It's a basic adapter, so slower/less flexible than some ... but a lot cheaper.

Other Thoughts: I didn't bother with the driver disc and just let Windows (7x64) find its own drivers, which seem to be fine.

I would second the recommendation of others to install Hotswap! to allow removing an external drive, which worked nicely for me and was not otherwise available.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks with Ubuntu 11.10

Pros: I converted my old Compaq desktop into an Ubuntu machine subsequent to a disk failure. The install, which was from a CD, went flawlessly.

5 out of 5 eggsSata card

Pros: Installed very easily works exactly as supposed to after determining how to access drivers.

Cons: No instructions for drivers for Windows 7.

Other Thoughts: Rosewill is making a nme for itself around here. Have other products that I bought because of price and have been surprised by how well the have held up.
