This review is from: StarTech 35BAYCF2SAT Compact Flash Card to SATA Adapter with 3.5” Bay Enclosure
Pros: I've purchased 2 of these along with 2 SanDisk Compact Flash media the combo runs FreeNas 8 perfectly. Allows me to use my 8 x 2TB WD RE4 drives connected to an Adaptec 5805 running in RAID 5EE without a problem.
Cons: None, unless you claim you know what you are doing and your knowledge is expert! Funny how I see it all the time on NewEgg yet these experts can't get stuff to work.
Other Thoughts: On 2 different mother boards I had to set the configuration for SATA controller in the BIOS differently. On one had to set the SATA controller to IDE mode and the other allowed AHCI. After making the change both boards were able to see the media allowing me to install FreeNas 8.03. Just love this combo!READ FULL REVIEW
