This review is from: Koutech IO-PESA230 PCI Express Low Profile Ready SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Controller Card
Pros: Once physically installed and connected to Western Digital Red WD20EFRX 2TB drive, Windows 7 recognized it without further fuss... for a while. I initially went to the KOUTECH website and tried to install the downloaded drivers from there. If it doesn't take the first time try again.
Cons: Windows System wasn't happy with the driver it had, and thats where the fun starts. AVOID THE CD. The MARVELL utility that is installed from the CD has a bad security certificate, and if you choose to take a "Spin the wheel and see where it stops" attitude (like I did) you get System Crash - Blue Screen of Death.
Other Thoughts: This card got me where I wanted to be with a bit more mucking around than I like (The printed "Instructions" leave much to be desired) but cherry picking info out of the directions, and wrassling the driver from the website, you get there. Maybe I am spoiled, this is the first adapter card that wasn't an Adaptec I have bought.READ FULL REVIEW
