This review is from: SUPPORT 3TBx4 HDD 2 SATA Cables-PCI TO 4 Port SATA Sil3114 CONTROLLER RAID CARD
Pros: This card does Exactly what I wanted it to do. I hooked up a SATA DVD/CD R/W Drive and it performs Perfectly as needed. I do not need the RAID function, but I see that it is available in XP 32 Bit OS system I am running. No problems with it connecting and running my DVD'CD R/W drive.
Cons: Had a little trouble with finding the driver, but I believe that was my fault in not letting it look for itself for the right driver from the CD. So not really a con just sort of time consuming figuring out how the drivers install.
Other Thoughts: They have EXCELLENT Customer Support. I received my SATA card and the Cd was damaged from a pin going though the Anti-Static Bag though the CD sleeve and pierced the top of the CD Reflective layer and we all know that is the Most Important part of the Cd as the code is written on the thin layer between the reflective layer and the polycarbonate layer. So if it can't bounce back the code from the Reflective layer the Cd is trashed.
They contacted me quickly and supplied a download for the Drivers. NewEgg Customer Support stepped in and let us use our Own email addresses to get this done - Go NewEgg.
I would recommend this card for XP 32bit OS system and would most likely work on the other OS's listed and in RAID mode if needed.
So far the Bad Lad has done Written and Reads all Cd's I have popped in it.
Pros: This is Super Case for a build. Plenty of room and can put in 120 140 mm fans up to 5 in a push-pull configuration. PS goes in the bottom of the case and the window is great for looking in if Tweaked out with lights or needing to be blown out from being dusty.
Cons: Some what hard to route cables if stiff and on MoBo's with SATA connection parallel to the board on the right edge is a little tight to get routed, but no worries for perpendicular SATA headers sticking straight up. Overall a Excellent case for a Build
