Does not work!

Pros: None!

Cons: Computer does boot but the card is not seen by Linux/Windows 7. Try to enter BIOS... Computer freezes! Searched the web for help... No luck so far...

Other Thoughts: Motherboard ASRock AB350 Pro4, Ryzen 5, 16Gb RAM GTX1050Ti.

No Issues With Win 7 Ultimate 64 or Windows 10 Pro

Pros: Works great so far. I'm using this with a 500GB Samsung EVO SSD as a scratch disk for video editing. Originally that drive was connected via a 2-port SYBA SATA card and the throughput was limited to about 200MB/s. Now, I consistently get 480+MB/s.


MB is a Rampage III Extreme and all 8 existing SATA ports are used as: RAID 1, 10, and BD drives
Windows 7 Ultimate 64
Primary applications: Adobe Premiere, Media Coder and After Effects CC

Cons: Arrived with the metal tab on one eSATA port mangled but after a bit of fiddling with needle nose pliers it seems usable

Other Thoughts: TIP: I did not use the included CD and instead went directly to the SIIG website and downloaded the latest drivers prior to the install. According to SIIG, if you're running Windows 10 you don't need manually install their drivers as Windows 10 provides them.

Great product!

Pros: I am running Windows 10 on an SSD and wanted to add an internal storage drive. I shut down the computer, installed the card, booted into the card's BIOS via Control + m right after my mobo BIOS, and then configured the array. Simple as that. Then I went into disk management in Windows and formatted the new drive to GPT (MBR is for 2TB or less NTFS, whereas GPT is 2TB + NTFS). The instructions are great, however, I wasn't installing Windows 10 so I didn't need them.

Cons: None at this point.

Other Thoughts: I originally bought a Syba card but the Marvell chipset was incompatible with my mobo integrated Marvell chipset. Now this card, which was $30 more, did the trick. Also, the warranty on this card is better.

Garbage

Cons: Doesn't work. Have a build with an ASRock Fatal1ty Gaming X99X Killer mobo and running windows 10, bios doesn't even know it's there.

Works as a mirror and by itself, does not appear to play well with others

Pros: Easy to setup, small, easy to fit into smaller cases. Flexibility of 2 internal, 2 external, or 4 internal, marvel chipset. Works in Windows 7 and Ubuntu (desktop and server) 14.x, and uses x2 PCI bandwidth. Works in x4, x8, and x16 slots (make sure your x16 slots are NOT graphics only ports, haven't found any like this, but be aware).

Cons: Does not appear to work well with onboard controllers

Other Thoughts: I have used this card in a Windows 7 x64 desktop with Intel DX58SO, 4 internal, 1x port used with a backup drive, 1x port used for Intel 240GB 530 SSD as boot drive, and 2x ports used with a 2x 2TB WD black mirrored (Raid 1) setup data drive. It worked and was an improvement (slightly) over the onboard Intel controller/components on the DX58SO (which were only SATA 2). This is a PCI Express 2.0, x2 interface, so make sure your motherboard can support a x2 2.0 interface.

Now, onto the bad which may or may not apply to you. After upgrading my wife's computer to new equipment that had native SATA 3 support and RAID, there was no need for this card. It was given new life as a controller on an ASUS Rampage motherboard, E8400 processor, 8GB of ECC RAM with Ubuntu 14.x server (media server) to expand the motherboard's 6x SATA2 ports with 4x SATA3 ports. I put the OS/SWAP drive on the SIIG card on an SSD, along with 3 of my most used/best drives attached without RAID. Transferring between the devices on the card worked perfectly, no issues. But, whenever I did long/large transfer from the card to the motherboard SATA 2 ports/drives or vice versa, I would get an error and the drives in the server would no longer be accessible in the OS (can't remember if it was the SIIG controller, the motherboard, or both controller that appears to be hosed up and spewing errors when I tried to access a drive) and I would have to bounce the server. Now, since the card doesn't officially support Ubuntu by SIIG documents, but according to other reading, the marvel chipset on the SIIG card is supported in kernels newer than 2013, it should not have been an issue. In any case, I ditched the card from use in the media server and spent proper money buying REAL HBA cards from a well know manufacturer for that type of product. To be fair, when I ditched the SIIG controller in favor of 2x 8 port HBA/RAID cards, I also ceased using the motherboard SATA 2 ports. So, without further testing, the problem could have been with the motherboard controller not playing well with the SIIG - that's a possibility I have to concede. For that, I removed only one egg. SIIG has always made good products, and I would use SIIG again, of course, this is a Marvel chip for the controller and they are widely used in motherboards and OEM solutions without issue.

According to the current info on the SIIG site, Windows 10 natively supports this card (drivers not needed), Windows 7 and 8 drivers are available there. I don't see officially a Windows 10 GUI download on the SIIG site, but you could probably use the Windows 7/8.x version - not sure about that.

On the issue of the Control + M to enter the BIOS. I had this issue too, but I solved it. I can't remember how, but I think the problem was until you add 2 drives to the controller, the RAID BIOS won't show up and it will just remain an HBA. Don't quote me on that, but I stirred on that for a long time and the documentation didn't say that as a requirement.

Also, one last item to consider. The nice thing about using a card like this for RAID as opposed to a motherboard port (beside speed if your motherboard only supports SATA 2) is that when you take this card from computer to computer, your RAID volume should survive and be completely compatible with whatever you put it in (data drives only, but boot drives might work too). Sometimes, changing motherboards from one manufacturer to another using different RAID controller chips from different manufacturers, the RAID volumes have to be redone. So if hardware upgrades and RAID migrations of data volumes are important to you, addon RAID cards become a nice luxury - imo :)

Works good

Pros: I'm not sure what everyone is complaining about but I saw all the bad reviews and felt compelled to add my two cents; I've had mine for about two years working with four Western Digital Se drives in a RAID 1+0 configuration and have never had it fail or cause me other problems, and unlike software RAID I really don't have to worry if the underlying OS can support the RAID setup since this hardware RAID card will expose the underlying disks as one single hard drive. Being exposed as one drive at the hardware level is really convenient when switching back and forth between Windows and Linux, and particularly on Linux since the drive is seen as a /dev/sd* disk rather than numerous odd named disks like with software RAID.

Cons: Marvell tray monitor software seems rather unstable and reading the SMART status of the physical disks is somewhat cumbersome.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this to anyone looking to get into RAID without spending hundreds of dollars, and you will notice a significant performance difference at a fraction of the price of a equivalent SSD setup. At this price point it might be a good idea to buy two or three as a backup just in case, or otherwise regularly backup important data, which is what prompted me to come back here and see all the reviews I mentioned earlier because I'd like to buy a couple more for just-in-case.

Horrible Experience! Avoid at all costs!

Pros: - Easy setup
- Simple design

Cons: - Random bluescreens and reboots
- Arrays corrupted within a couple of weeks.

Other Thoughts: I don't review very often, but I felt the need to warn others about this controller. While it is very cheap, it is just not worth the headaches and the potential loss of any data. If your data is important, please avoid this controller at all costs. Learn from my mistake.

Not what we expected

Pros: It works...mostly

Cons: - unable to get into the bios (Ctrl-M) on boot up
- new drives randomly "plugged out"

Other Thoughts: - installed late but hoping to return for refund
