This review is from: PROMISE SATA300 TX4 PCI SATA II (3.0Gb/s) Controller Card
Pros: Price. It works and is faster than IDE and non-NCQ SATA
Cons: Minor gripes: It's a Promise, not the first brand that comes to mind when you think "quality".
Other Thoughts: I can't speak for motherboard compatibility, but I've used these in a Dell Dimension 4600 and a Dell PowerEdge 600SC without incident. From a standpoint of quality and performance there are better cards out there.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SUPERMICRO AOC-SAT2-MV8 64-bit PCI-X133MHz SATA II (3.0Gb/s) Controller Card
Pros: This is an excellent upgrade for an older P4 system that doesn't support SATA w/NCQ. It gives better performance than almost any other PCI SATA cards I've tried.
Cons: It's a bit pricy but IMO worth it. Linux does not yet support the NCQ features of this card.
Other Thoughts: It would rock if they made a 4 port version of this card. Like someone else said, it's the only non-RAID 8-port SATA card out there - everything else is a true hardware RAID card.READ FULL REVIEW
