Pros: Excellent solution to communicate with older equipment.
Can use any PCI Express slot.
Great for the modern chipset boards that don't have any older serial port connection support.
Other Thoughts: I've had these communicate with serial port equipment that the add-ons that come with newer main boards would not.
They've been used on both Win7 and XP.
This review is from: PLEXTOR USB 2.0 External Slim 8X Super Multi DVD Drive Model PX-610U
Pros: Worked great.
Has been recognized by all PCs.
***Recognized by all servers I've used it on for initial installations. Very nice.
Other Thoughts: Short cord, but any A/B USB cable will work. So, I borrowed one off a printer to use in a situation that required a longer cable.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: 8 SATA drive support.
Easy boot setup.
Running 8 SATA drives in a RAID 10 with no issues.
Cons: No external port.
Other Thoughts: This card is running 8 WD RE3's in a RAID 10.
Included breakout cables are 'just' long enough for most rack servers, but did take a little creative cable routing.
Windows GUI software is basic and easy to use.
Watch out for that Server 2008 2 TB drive limit. Cured by setting up multiple arrays in the Adaptec boot menu.
