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
Good hardware, good price. Better on sale!
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.)
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.
