This review is from: SYBA SY-PCI40010 PCI SATA II (3.0Gb/s) 4 Port RAID 0/1/5/10 JBOD Card
Pros: Plugs in and is recognized w/o any problems.
Cons: To get the BIOS to recognize any drives for booting purposes you must set up a RAID/Concatenation/etc setup.
Other Thoughts: Have an older Asus A7V8X-LA board which has only SATA1 and cannot connect to my SATA2+ devices. This allowed me to connect all 3 SATA devices and boot Vista off of a 320Gb WD SATA2 drive set as a single drive concatenation in the card's BIOS.READ FULL REVIEW

This review is from: Acronis True Image 2014 - 1 PC
Pros: Easy to use and very customizable. Can also read/convert Windows system image files. Fairly speedy in backup operations.
Cons: No real cons.
Other Thoughts: Very satisfied with True Image's operations. Started with the free version that came with my WD hard disk and when the full version was available at a discount, I jumped. Use it to regularly back up my laptop to two 500Gb external drives Also use the newer free version on my older tower for backups and cloning purposes. IMHO, this is the best backup software on the market for the price. Well worth the price to protect your data and to clone drives/partitions.READ FULL REVIEW
