Works in Linux

Rosewill RC-209 PCI SATA Controller Card
Rosewill RC-209 PCI SATA Controller Card

Pros: Inexpensive four port SATA-II card. Worked fine in Linux (2.4.33.3) using the sata_sil driver module. Read rates in excess of 115MB/s with four 500meg drives attached.

Cons: None to speak of.

Overall Review: This card was a great choice for setting up a cheap software raid under Linux. I assume the Windows setup would work fine, but I didn't test that at all.

Good for the cost

Pros: Inexpensive. Stand is sturdy and the monitor is decent looking. The display is clean and looks fine at 1280x1024.

Cons: One dead pixel (at about 640x15). Since it is just black it isn't that noticable, but no deads would have been better. Would be nice if the stand had more adjustment options.
