Easy Installation & OK on JBOD/Passthrough Mode 08/27/2012
This card is being used on my desktop running Win 7 64-bit OS. The card driver was included included in the product CD. Easy installation.
I am using it on passthrough/JBOD mode, with an eSata 4-drive exterior case (Sans Digital Towerraid TR4M). No RAID, just as an eSata connector with port multiplier.
(I am using this card as a replacement for a RocketRaid 622 eSata RAID controller card (from HighPoint Tech) that came bundled with the Sans Digital Towerraid TR4M -- the RocketRaid card was very difficult to configure, and I gave up on it).
Manufacturer's (Koutech) website is hard to navigate, and did not have the latest version of the driver available for download.
Instruction included in the box is minimalist. It talks about using the RAID GUI application to set up JBOD mode, etc. I didn't do that -- Just installed the card and the driver, and connected the external drive case with 2 HDD's, and the card just worked -- it found the HDDs.
Works well so far, connecting my desktop to the external enclosure with 2 drives via eSata on JBOD/Passthrough mode.
I am not using RAID functionality, so can't comment on the same.
