Seems OK but ... 12/9/2013 3:52:45 PM

Pros: Reasonably priced card that was instantly recognized. No driver install needed (Linux). I was using it to add a third SATA drive to my server.

Cons: Doesn't play nice with my SCSI card. It insists on being FIRST no matter which slot I put it in so I can't boot from the SCSI drive.

Overall Review: I would need to do some fancy footwork to make this work - but it could. Just need to put the boot partition on the first drive on this card and change grub menu accordingly.

Installed and worked as expected 7/23/2013 4:59:32 AM

Pros: Low price, ease of installation, support for optical devices.

I received the card from Newegg very quickly, and as per the description and the reviews, it was a minimalist solution, having only the Windows drivers in the box on CD. I was surprised to find that an SATA cable was included, which made it much easier to connect the LG SATA DVD drive I had and an older WD 500 GB SATA hard drive.

It took me a while to figure out which BIOS setting on my PC would give me access to the BIOS setup on the card, but once that was done, everything checked out.

I'm using the card with Xubuntu Linux and had no problems setting the card as primary, booting off of a DVD and the drive, or having the drivers loaded automatically.

Cons: None

It works 3/11/2012 1:04:28 AM

Pros: It works. Customer service with the company of this product was very helpful and very quick to answer my questions.

Cons: Wasn't as simple as plug n play. Had a lot of trouble at first getting the driver to install properly. Contacted support about my issues. Ended up being a windows error that was corrected later.

Overall Review: I don't have this in raid. My motherboard has 5 sata ports and 4 of them are used while the 5th one is defective. I needed one more sata port for my newest drive so I bought the cheapest solution I could get and am not regretting my purchase. It only works at SATA I speeds but on a regular mechanical hard drive you it performs just as fast as my other drives.

I have no plans to Raid yet. If I do I personally would buy a higher grade controller instead of using this. It only supports Raids 0/1. I personally would want Raid 5 when ever I feel liking moving to Raid.

Works easily and well 11/10/2011 6:46:47 AM

Pros: I Emailed Koutech before purchasing the PSA150 to be sure it is compatible with my Caviar Green 1TB hard drive and with Windows 7 64-bit, and they returned my email the following day saying that there are no known issues. By doing that they earned my business. They also recommended that I install the raid drivers whether I plan to use RAID or not. (Good to know.)They were right, the card was compatible, easy to install, and bootable. I'm not using it as a RAID controller right now, but so far it has worked without a hiccup on drivers Windows Device Manager located online. I have not yet installed the RAID drivers from the installation disk...I may not.

Cons: The driver installation instructions are a bit sparse. A setup utility, if it is on the driver disk, is not obvious.

works great in my Linux box 10/30/2011 6:53:27 PM

Pros: Cheap; no software to install; on-board utility intuitive for basic RAID constellations; does the job: tested it with creating a mirrored RAID 1, then booted the freshly mirrored HDD on its own.

Cons: Black: I wish it came in purple, with a yellow racing stripe; you have to rely on software indications of drive failure: the only warning of a broken array [removed drive] is a momentary screen in the boot process that warns you of a "critical state"... for 4000 ms. An on-board alarm for a broken array would be great for those of use using this in a server and won't have that warning at boot up. Also it took approx 7.5 hrs to mirror two 1TB drives. The Set-up utility has an option for 'online' (normal boot up and copying happens in the background) or 'offline' (sit and watch the cursor spin for 7.5 hrs) copying.

Overall Review: At this point I would buy another one. From Newegg as well...
