This review is from: StarTech 25SAT22MSAT HDD Accessory
Pros: Well built little card. Price is good, its not a bad card just slower than i expected
Cons: OK, 2 drives in R0 (mushkin DX) are above 800mbs on my OEM adapter card. I barely broke 400 with this card and that was on accident by not re-setting the raid modes. This is a good concept but a bad implementation, also hit the market about 5 years to late. The JM 562 chip is capable of sata3 speeds. In single drive mode i was in the 200's R and about 100 W. Thats just wrong.
Other Thoughts: Well for an old junky SATA1-2 computer these might be a good thing, or if you have no Msata slot or just have extra drives you want to use. It "should" saturate an sata2 port. The description should state its only sata2. I did not test in PM mode, didnt really see a need as it was so slow in single drive mode
I can still use it i have an older C2D T400 i can put it in.
I have tested 3 differant cards of this type in 3 weeks and they are all pretty much the same. One was sata3 for a desktop and the performance gain was minimal. So for now i will just keep looking i guess, somthing better has got to come out sooner or later.
