Pros: Cheap, small, powerful
Other Thoughts: GPU arrived DOA, displaying pink memory-type artifacts even in BIOS.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The packaging appears to be from the future. Possibly some Neo-Tokyo.
Cons: Unit is very cheap and flimsy, card reader froze computer. Frankly I'd be worried about long term installation, with regards to fire hazard. Avoid, save yourself time.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Controller uses Silicon image 0680a fw ver 3.0.12, provides support for 4 atapi devices. Bios/boot is quicker than other add in pci/pata cards.
Cons: Optical drives register as Multi-Word DMA 2 instead of udma 0 - 6 as they should. The normal hack to get around this with the SI 0680A chip is to flash to an older fw version, but the EEPROM that Rosewill used is non-standard so it cannot be flashed.
Other Thoughts: I built a 10 drive cd replication machine, will be buying one additional controller. So far, with 4x cdrw on the mobo controllers (ich6) and 4x on this one Rosewill card I can burn @ 52x to all of them at once.READ FULL REVIEW
