4-Port mSATA or SATA III PCI-E 2.0 x4 RAID Controller Card; Marvell Chipset

This PCI-Express SATA RAID controller employs the Marvell HyperDuo technology to take advantage of the rapid response of a Solid State Drive (SSD) and the spacious capacity of a hard disk drive (HDD). This creates a total solution for a high performance, cost effective and large storage system. The controller also offers hardware RAID 0/RAID 1 with SATA 6.0Gbps architecture.


Highlights

  • 4-Lane PCI-Express 2.0 Interface Supports Communication Bandwidth.
  • Supports Hardware RAID 0, 1, 10, and JBOD.
  • HyperDuo Mode Supports Safe Mode (Mirrored Protection), and Capacity Mode (Cost-Optimized).
  • Up to 4 SATA/mSATA Devices with Point-to-Point Connectivity

4 out of 5 eggsWould have been great, but...

Pros: Works very well and able to boot with it. Documentation though needs to be better. Either SATA or mSATA though mode by default is set to SATA mode, so if using for mSATA be sure to move the jumper to 2 and 3. The arrow indicator on the card I would guess means pin no. 1 so 2 and 3 will be the next 2. Also, only way to get to the Marvell Utility via cntl-m is to use a PC not a Mac Pro but once set for RAID can be put in a Mac Pro and OSX (at least with Mavericks) can see the created hardware RAID drive. If software RAID (in OSX) is chosen, there is no need to go to the Marvell utility as per my test, OSX software RAID 0 gets the same disk speed as Marvell's HW RAID 0.

Cons: Documentation is lacking and does not give enough information about the jumpers.

4 out of 5 eggsmy bad

Pros: please disregard my previous post. The card works pretty well. The problem was that the card comes jumper-ed to SATA and not mSATA and the manual makes no mention of this anywhere.

Cons: The card comes shipped with the jumpers for SATA and not mSATA

Other Thoughts: I would recommend the card; make sure you get the latest drivers, jumper to mSATA if that is what you need. The speed seems pretty good so far.

2 out of 5 eggsNot a low profile card; lazy engineering

Pros: Four mSATA cards in one PCIe slot with hardware RAID.

Cons: When I bought this card, the item description claimed "Full and Low Profile Bracket is included" and "Supports Both Full and Low Profile". This is not a low profile card and there is no low profile bracket! Check the pictures and make sure this card will fit in your system before you order it. The mSATA RAID card itself I'm sure works fine, but if you need a low profile card or one that will fit in a constrained space, this is not the card you're looking for.

I also was somewhat confused by the proliferation of jumpers on this card until I figured out that the selection between mSATA slots and SATA ports was done by running SATA data lines through the jumpers. That's right, 6gbps of data being run through jumpers! Normally jumpers are just used as controls to switches. The problem here is that the jumpers themselves become little antennas that radiate - or are influenced by other radiation. I wonder if they did EMI testing at all on this card. If it works for you and you see the right data rates, it's probably fine, but I'm not terribly comfortable using this in the storage server I was putting together.

Other Thoughts: If you don't need the regular SATA ports, Addonics has a four-port mSATA card without the jumpers. I ended up with a two-port mSATA plus two-port SATA card from SIIG that's a true low profile card (and fits fine).

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

Changes have been made to the description.

We apologize for the confusion made from a previous product listing with a similar model.

Thank you for your feedback.

5 out of 5 eggsgood performing card

Pros: i've owned this card for about 2 weeks prior to this being offered on NewEgg (else i'd have bought it here - i paid a bit more as a result), so i've had a chance to benchmark it.

This card is based on the Marvell 9230 controller with an x2 interface (max 10 Gb/s or around 780 MB/s). i purchased to Samsung 840 Evo 250 GB drives from NewEgg and mounted them up on this board).

i benched on a older AMD Phenom 9850 machine (MSI motherboard) with PCIe 2.0 slots. Performance was as follows (in AS SSD):

Single 840 Evo:

Seq:486.15 MB/s 465.76 MB/s
4K: 26.91 MB/s 44.72 MB/s
4K-64Thrd: 292.02 MB/s 248.56 MB/s
Acc. time: 0.087 ms 0.080 ms

RAID0 with dual mSata Samsung 840 Evo 250:

Seq:705.19 MB/s 626.46 MB/s
4K: 26.34 MB/s 40.58 MB/s
4K-64Thrd: 267.58 MB/s 221.36 MB/s
Acc. time: 0.092 ms 0.088 ms

RAID1 with dual mSata Samsung 840 Evo 250:

Seq:682.41 MB/s 330.14 MB/s
4K: 24.88 MB/s 39.11 MB/s
4K-64Thrd: 255.38 MB/s 226.82 MB/s
Acc. time: 0.093 ms 0.090 ms

In ATTO with a single Samsung 840 Evo:
512525 MB/s write, 546 MB/s read

In ATTO with a dual Samsung 840 Evo in RAID0 :
693 MB/s write, 780 MB/s read

In ATTO with a dual Samsung 840 Evo in RAID1 :
357 MB/s write, 774 MB/s read

In ATTO with a dual Samsung 840 Evo with Windows Dynamic Stripe:
704 MB/s write, 787 MB/s read

i did not test the HyperDuo function as i won't be using an HDD with it.

This card is also a good upgrade for folks with PCIe 1.0 slots, or older motherboards with SATA 2 slots. With a PCIe 1.0 slot and this motherboard with a new Crucial M500 240 GB... i benched...

Seq:347.98 MB/s 273.67 MB/s
4K: 21.88 MB/s 54.66 MB/s
4K-64Thrd: 237.20 MB/s 230.68 MB/s
Acc. time: 0.092 ms 0.081 ms

Cons: none really, aside from the fact that its an x2 card (which limits its performance to just under 800 MB/s). For the money this card works well. Just make sure you use the latest driver... specifically 1.2.0.1041 WHQL. The drivers on the CD that come with it are out of date.

Make sure you use the above drivers and a PCIe 2.0 slot otherwise you will be limited to around 350MB/s
