Other Thoughts: Regarding the manufacturer response for Lloyd L. on 12/4/2013, "Raid 0" does not normally decrease write speed. A quick search on Google or Wikipedia states:
RAID 0 comprises striping (but no parity or mirroring). This level provides no data redundancy nor fault tolerance, but improves performance through parallelism of read and write operations across multiple drives. RAID 0 has no error detection mechanism, so the failure of one disk causes the loss of all data on the array.

Pros: Combines "SATA3" and USB3 into 1 PCIE slot.
Cons: Card uses x4 format, but in reality the chips use total of x2, that is x1 for SATA3 and x1 for USB3. There is no bandwidth improvement over any other x1 SATA3 controller card. A x4 format card that only supports x1 bandwidth for SATA, or "SATA2.5" speed.
Other Thoughts: Tested SATA3 performace with Samsung 840 Pro 256GB, with Samsung Magician and CrystalDiskMark. Read is around 400MB/s and write is around 360MB/s. Card is seated in a PCIE 2.0 x16 slot.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Single rail with 60 amp, all the juice is shared among all equipments inside the pc, no juice wasted as with multi-rails.
Cons: 1 of the4 6-pin connectors is not working properly, so I am using a molex-to-6pin adapter to power my GTX280. Power supply itself has no problem with pumping all the juice for my whole pc.
Other Thoughts: Currently powering: i7 920 @ 1.32V, TWO GTX280s SLI, 5 fans, 2 harddrives with no hiccup. 750W of clean power on a single rail is enough for 2 GTX280 in SLI.READ FULL REVIEW
