Pros:

*Adds 8 SATA-II Ports to you're PCI-X (133Mhz) Equipped Server.
*Has pretty LEDs for Drive/Activity (With Pin-outs for added LEDs!)
*Works with Ubuntu Server 10.04.4 x86
*100+ MB/s to SATA-II Drives
*Option for low-profile
*Software RAID or JBOD
*Server is now 20% "Cooler"

Took a bit of working to get it to show up (My BIOS was hiding the card's BIOS screen), but got it installed and was 100% plug-and-play for my OS (Didn't install a single thing!)

Right now i am running 4x SATA/SATA-II drives in a JBOD configuration (soon to be 8x!).

I am currently running this in my home server, which has the duties of backups, streaming music/video, A TeamSpeak 3 server, and a minecraft server (Just to name a few). So far i have had no problems and it looks to be a great little card for this type of thing.

Cons:

The ONLY thing i don't like is that the SATA ports on the back are upside-down. So it makes it a bit difficult to wire-tie the cables together, but even knowing that i would still buy 100 more if i had the money :)

Other Thoughts:

My motherboard isn't the newest thing on the block (Intel SE7501BR2), but this card works great and adds the much needed SATA ports to this board. I get around 100MB/s transfer over Gigabit using SAMBA, which puts my 42MB/s i got with my other to shame.

If you're looking for a PCI-X RAID/JBOD card with 8 SATA-II ports, look no further. This is the best (and only) PCI-X SATA-II card with 8 ports for under $100.
