Pros: It will mount and read devices reliably, but see below

Cons: Apologies to anyone who acted on my review, here's what I found with more time.
It installs fine, mounts drives OK, but any media it mounts under Linux is only reliable for reading. This applies to hard drives and dvd/cd writers.
I tried to install Ubuntu 12.04 onto it and the install consistently stopped about 1/2 way through with a message about possible bad media. I also tried burning a cd and a dvd connected thru this card and in all cases it reported insufficient space on the empty disc. It will however successfully read media.
Connecting the hard drive and dvd writer I mention above to the native SATA ports on my mobo and repeating the tests resulted in perfect behavior.
Too bad, I really wanted to like this product, now I will RMA.
