What they said.

MASSCOOL PCI Card, 4 internal SATA Model XWT-RC040
MASSCOOL PCI Card, 4 internal SATA Model XWT-RC040

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: Cheap.

Overall Review: Pretty much echoing what other reviews have said. Hell of time getting the card to seat. One broken connector, so now only 3. (I would say it's more of a function of the cheap SATA cables included that were VERY TIGHT so when I tried to remove it it was difficult then SNAP). I used cables that came with my MB and those worked fine and were easy to insert and remove. Had to flash the BIOS. Come with 5.0.x version and the current is 5.4.x, Could not read my SATA DVD-RW drive and SATA DVD-ROM until I flashed the BIOS, but that could have been the broken connector that I didn't realize was broken at the time (fixed BIOS and cable at the same time). Don't bother with MASSCOOL site, just go to Silicon Image website and do it there...made a bootdisk from bootdisk.com (the plain BIOS Flashing version) and it flashed no problem. Even my 1.5TB SATA Hard Disk is working well....bummer I lost a connector but after all the rigamarole it's not worth returning. Have Fun.
