    Pros:

    * Very cheap compared to other alternatives in our local internet computer shops (30% of prize of cheapest)[CZ].
    * It works like a charm with my netbook Asus N10J. With Windows 7 (32bit) no driver CD is needed, just launch Search for new devices in the Hardware Manager.
    * Advantage of using eSATA instead of USB to connect external HDD drive is great especially with this slow-CPU(Atom) netbook.
    * Speeds measured with CrystalDiskMark + Samsung 500GB (HD501LJ) disk in Transcend external Disk case:
    Sequential Read : 72.456 MB/s
    Sequential Write : 78.357 MB/s
    Random Read 512KB : 31.539 MB/s

    )

    Cons:

    No cons so far.

    OtherThoughts:

    The card itself seems little bit twisted, but there was no problem to plug it in the Card slot.

    Bottomline:

    For now I am satisfied with this buy. I hope it will last for long enough :)
