  • RAID 0,1,0+1 JBOD
  • 2 x SATA 150 + 1 x ATA 133 Internal Connectors

5 out of 5 eggs Great Price, does the job for home backup. 03/24/2009

This review is from: SYBA SY-VIA-150R PCI SATA / IDE Combo RAID Controller Card

Pros:

Easy to install and use and the instructions were pretty good. Price was great for a simple RAID card.

Cons:

HDD light doesn't work anymore, but who cares. I had trouble installing a new OS at the same time as this system. Since I was doing RAID 1. The workaround was to simply install it on one drive then mirror the other.

Other Thoughts:

This is perfect for someone who justs wants RAID on their desktop computer. I put it on my 4 year old Sony VAIO and with 2 1TB hard drives. If you are wondering about the price differences between this on the other RAID controllers, the reason is that this is more for a home desktop environment and can't do fancy RAID 5, or handle more than 2 drives in RAID. But for me this was perfect.
