4 out of 5 eggsInexpensive - works well when updated (Win 7 & RAID 0)

Pros: Inexpensive - exactly at that price point where cost/reliability is balanced. You MUST update with the latest firmware, which is MUCH different than the 2004 BIOS loaded with the item I purchased.

Cons: You need to have a good working comp knowledge to update. The firmware flash program provided by Silicon Image doesn't seem to work with Win 7. Make a boot CD (I used a USB Floppy - can't believe I still have it), and flash in DOS. It's painless. Once updated, it recognizes all four of the drives plugged in (2x500GB and 2x1TB, all WD), and continues to recognize them upon power up. I used them to pair both sets of drives into two RAID 0 arrays. Once configured (the controller's BIOS screen shows up first, you select the boot device in the mobo's screen (ASUS P5G43T-M Pro), and install as usual with Win 7 and a floppy/USB driver. Windows is loaded and running fine on the new 1TB RAID 0 array.

Other Thoughts: Support outside of Win 7/Vista/XP may be a bit sparse, so it may be a risk to use this card in those applications. Works just fine in Windows, however.

2 out of 5 eggsComplicated, but sort of work now

Pros: Came with firmware 5.0.39; it couldn't recognize my 1.5TB or 2.0TB drives. Flashed it with firmware 5.4.0.3, and it works now.

Cons: The latest driver Windows 7 can take is 1.0.21.0 (with firmware 5.0.39 or 5.4.0.3). The Java-based SATARaid utility couldn't find the controller, even after flashing the firmware.

Other Thoughts: It is a fakeRAID system. Still trying to configure dmraid in Ubuntu to recognize the RAID set. But in worst case, Ubuntu can see the drives individually and run software RAID.

Silicon Image provides drivers for Windows 7/Vista/XP/2003 installation; don't have time to test it out.

2 out of 5 eggsNOT work for me

Pros: Cheap. Comes with 2 SATA cables. Drivers for Windows 7 and other variants, and various Linux distro as well. Ubuntu 10.04 can detect this card and works fine as soon as I plug it in.

Cons: No hardware RAID 5 support; speed limited by PCI. It can't detect my Seagate 1.5TB nor Hitachi 2.0TB HDD.

Other Thoughts: This card can detect my old 36GB/10krpm drive fine, but it choked on my 1.5TB and 2.0TB HDDs. During boot-up, the Si3114 BIOS detected the first HDD model name, but it couldn't figure out its capacity, and just hung. This happens with either drives or both attached. Maybe it'll work with drives of smaller capacity; but since I'm trying to use it on an old machine as a file server, I'll need the space (and speed of RAID 0), so I didn't care to test further.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't Buy It!

Pros: None.

Cons: It will sometimes detect in one of my computers using an ASRock botherboard. After a reboot or sometime it will just dissappear. The drivers CD is a cluster of junk. No documentation. Drivers for other devices. Multiple drivers for the same product labelled in multiple ways not easy to understand. Do not buy this junk get an adaptec and spend the $50 bucks.

1 out of 5 eggsAVOID!

Pros: Cheap. Comes with 2 SATA cables and driver CD. Newegg ships fast.

Cons: Doesn't work. No manual or documentation. Not recognized in any PC. Very flimsy craftmanship. Sauder points look rusty and whole board just looks used and dirty.

Other Thoughts: This PCI board looks as cheap as it is. You get what you pay for here...so this board should have been free. Not a good value if it doesn't work. Not NewEgg fault though. Strictly a Sabrent issue.

Pros: n/a

Cons: doesn't work in my IBM 300pl

Other Thoughts: bios finishes it's system check, raid firmware allows me to create raid sets, then computer freezes. Have tried every bios configuration under the sun.
