Works for OpenSolaris with no RAID

SYBA SD-SATA2-4IR PCI SATA II (3.0Gb/s) RAID Controller Card
SYBA SD-SATA2-4IR PCI SATA II (3.0Gb/s) RAID Controller Card

Pros: * Simple to setup * I used it with OpenSolaris 2008.11 * If you don't want RAID, press F4 to enter the BIOS menu and choose "concatenation" of 1 (not 2 or more). I created 2 concatenation sets, each with only 1 drive.

Cons: * Probably not for high-performance RAID * Could use more documentation (maybe it's on the CD)

Most Critical Review

Hangs with 1TB WDC disk drive

SIIG SC-SA4011-S2 PCI SATA Controller Card
SIIG SC-SA4011-S2 PCI SATA Controller Card

Pros: Four ports, drivers for Windows Vista

Cons: Hangs with WDC 1TB disk drive (WDC WD100Fals-00J7B). Controller BIOS is "Sil 3114 SATALink BIOS Versio n5.0.18". Works OK without disk drive attached.

Difficult to install (hardware & software)

ORICO Monster USB 3.0 PCI - Express Card with 5 Rear USB 3.0 Ports and 1x Internal USB 3.0 20-PIN Connector Controller Adapter Card (PVU3-502I)
ORICO Monster USB 3.0 PCI - Express Card with 5 Rear USB 3.0 Ports and 1x Internal USB 3.0 20-PIN Connector Controller Adapter Card (PVU3-502I)

Pros: Should add USB 3 ports once I get it to work

Cons: This thing is difficult to install. The instructions are poorly written in translated English. The install CD is corrupt. One must download from a website. The instructions don't say which driver to load (there are drivers for several cards). Once installed, I find I need an exteranl power source for the card. It uses the old fashioned SAC-05 5-pin power plug, so I need an adapter from SATA power (on order). What a nightmare!

Works for phone

The seller shipped the wrong item. I returned it for a refund minus shipping. The seller got it and cancelled the RMA. They kept the money and I never got the item. I will challenge this with my credit card company. Buyer beware.
