Addonics ADST114 PCI SATA RAID Controller Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

1 out of 5 eggs Fundamental design defect 04/10/2011

This review is from: Addonics ADST114 PCI SATA RAID Controller Card

Pros: 1. 93.6/83.5 MB/s burst/average transfer rates over 2 TB drive range, 3% CPU

2. Nice 'Flash BIOS' tab in Properties window for device in Device Manager

Cons: 1. SMART data misreported when two HDDs attached -- last drive's data reported for both drives

2. Passes SMART ID and Data, fails to report error/self-test logs

Other Thoughts: Silicon Image Sil 3114 SATARaid Controller BIOS 5.0.73
PCI\VEN_1095&DEV_3114&SUBSYS_61141095&REV_02\4&23C0B1C&0&08F0

Like others with similar Sil chipsets, this implementation is clearly defective. SMART data reporting error when two HDDs attached; Query of drive 1 gets data from drive 2; drive 2 is reported correctly as drive 2. Appears to be associated with Silicon Image SATARaid Controller implementations (Sil 3114 here). SMART data pass-through only partially implemented -- ID and Data available, but not error/self-test logs (subject to design error of misreporting drives entirely). Did not test RAID.

This implementation is clearly defective. SMART data reporting error when two HDDs attached; Query of drive 1 gets data from drive 2; drive 2 is reported correctly as drive 2. Appears to be associated with Silicon Image Sil 3512 SATARaid Controller implementations (BIOS 4.5.02 here).

This implementation is clearly defective. SMART data reporting error when two HDDs attached; Query of drive 1 gets data from drive 2; drive 2 is reported correctly as drive 2. Appears to be asscociated with Silicon Image Sil 3512 SATARaid Controller implementations. SMART data passthrough only partially implemented -- ID and Data available, but not error/self-test logs (subject to design error of misreporting drives entirely).
