Rosewill RC-221 PCI Low Profile Ready SATA Controller Card

5 out of 5 eggs Works Great So Far 05/08/2010

This review is from: Rosewill RC-221 PCI Low Profile Ready SATA Controller Card

Pros: Installed on Win7 and seems to work great
- Box says compatible with Win7
- Contacted Rosewill and they said Win7 drivers not available
- Rosewill website only has Vista and older drivers dated 2007
-- Installed Vista drivers from website and it seems to work (Win7 could not find any drivers)
-- Setup 2 drives in Mirror configuration - can unplug either drive and data is still available. Mirror Raid 1 drives are also readable with other nonRaid interfaces as a regular standalone drive.
-- fast writes, and still works after about a week of use, --and can still recover data

Cons: Confusing installation and operation instructions
-- jumper on board - for boot (activate drives) or non boot (don't activate drives)
-- must boot and bios-configure RAID setup before installing drivers.
-- installed vista drivers with Win7 Device Manager (update driver)
-- Still unsure how reliable drivers are or if I will have future problems, since Rosewill is so vague about actual support.

Other Thoughts: -- Didn't notice a JBOD configuration in the initial setup menu, (not interested) but maybe some combination of Turn RAID off configuration might pop up a JBOD status.
