5 out of 5 eggs Good hardware, bad manual 01/14/2009

This review is from: Rosewill RC-215 VIA PCI SATA 1.5G x2 / ATA 133 (IDE) x1 Controller Card

Pros:

Good hardware, good price. Better on sale!

Cons:

The manual is rather confusing:

- The Tab key does not get you into the RAID BIOS. Follow the on-screen instructions instead, which you'll only see when a drive is attached.

- In Driver Installation, "For A New Installation" means a new installation of Windows, not a new RAID.

Also, my HDD light doesn't flash when this card's drive is in use. (I'm still using my motherboard PATA, which might have something to do with this.)

Other Thoughts:

I needed SATA, not a RAID, so I haven't used those features.

I bought this when it went on sale suddenly, but failed to notice it doesn't come with a SATA cable. Probably still worth it.
