3 out of 5 eggs Little linux support 01/05/2011

This review is from: Rosewill RC-605 SATAII ExpressCard 2 x SATA

Pros:

I used this with a Mac Book Pro that was manufactured in 2008 and Snow Leopard. Once, I downloaded the latest drivers from Rosewill, the card and external e-sata drive that I purchased worked flawlessly. This was a very fast setup.

Cons:

Criticisms are not directed at Rosewill but at Silicon Image which provided the 3132 chipset for this card. No support for the sil3132 drivers under Fedora 14. Silicon Image does have a driver that is written for RHEL 4.x with a 2006 date. There is no source code for the driver and you cannot recompile it for a more modern version of RHEL/Fedora.

Other Thoughts:

Gave the Rosewill e-sata expresscard and e-sata drive to my son who will use this with his MBP as a media server.
