This review is from: Rosewill RC-221 PCI Low Profile Ready SATA Controller Card
Pros: Card seems to work -- note that the RAID functionality is a future item for me and I haven't tried it yet.
The card comes with two brackets (half-height and full-height). That feature was a lifesaver.
Cons: The jumper did indeed fall off on me. I didn't notice it at the time. Pressing the F4 (Configure) key during BIOS load resulted in "Device not attached" or similar error.
The GUI SATARaid.exe (you have to look for it) command just errored out without a meaningful message.
Rosewill techsupport has yet to respond to my original request for help.
Attaching another jumper resolved the load and attachment problems.
This is not spec'd (so I don't count it as a bad thing) but don't expect to get full BacX Duet functionality with this card -- I only see one of the two SATA drives.
Other Thoughts: Never received a reply from Rosewill tech support. The price is good but if I ever get a "real" problem, I wonder if I'll be able to get knowledgeable (or any) assistance.READ FULL REVIEW
