This review is from: SYBA SY-PCI40037 SATA II (3.0Gb/s) 1:5 (5x1) Port Multiplier PCI Mounting Card
Works with AOC-SAT2-MV8 a Hercules chipset but SMART is reported only for a single drive.
Works with SYBA SIL3124 chipset and SMART is reported for all drives not just first or last one. The above two boards are PCI-X but the SIL3124 was tested in a small PCI socket with the pins sticking past the end of the socket. This puts it into 32 bit mode instead of 64 but it worked perfectly.
Need to find a place to put it as the external 4 drive tower made by Stardom does not have enough room for the PCB board and I don't want to put the board in the computer case. Difficult to mount if not using a "slot".
Be nice if it had 4 mounting holes at the corners of the pcb as I could bolt it to the top of the enclosure and put a cover on it.
