    Very easy to install and use. Great expansion card for my home server. Looks great in black colour inside the PC tower. None. Package was damaged, but the product was intact. One of the connectors was kinda loose, but it is working for months anyway without issues. Absolutely perfect and I have a... Read more

    Works very well on Win Xp, also on RedHat Linux. I am using it as software raid with 4x 500GB. It comes very good packaged. I am using it only as regular sata, no card raid. Raid functionality was not tested. Card fit very well in PCI slot. I am not using shipped drivers. I used Sil 3114 drivers... Read more

    Well-known Silicon Image 3114 chip. Both Windows and Linux work right out from the box. No hassle with looking for a driver. CD with the drivers is included to shipment, if the Windows can not find the proper one. Contains EEPROM, that the BIOS can be upgraded with the utility from SIL website. I... Read more

Under XP it is very easy to install the driver with the deliverd CD. It is almost plug-and-play. Because I only have some optical drives attached I do... Read more

    Works straight out of the box with my debian / kernel 3.2.0 amd64 machine. Comes with two sata cables. Unbeatable price. The sata cables are the shortest I've ever seen, not usable in my server box (luckily I had some longer spares) Not Pci-e. Hope it will turn out to be stable - so far it has a... Read more

    I needed to add 4 hard drives to a fileserver with only one PCI slot, and this was by far the cheapest card that fit the bill. Once I installed the right firmware, it worked perfectly as a non-raid card (It supports software-raid with the default firmware, which is not helpful under *NIX) in my I... Read more

    This controller card can be made to work with Windows 7 if you have the right drivers. And they do exist. I was then able to install Windows 7 as a new install onto a new SSD connected to this Silicon Image 4-Port PCI Expansion Card, also known as Silicon Image 3114. It only comes with drivers up...

    Good price works flawlessly on a Debian GNU/Linux, if you have to add SATA ports to your computer and you use the Penguin OS run like hell from VIA chipsets, all kind of problems, but with Sil chipsets never have any. Everything working perfectly till now. Haven't tried the RAID options but from... Read more

    - Easy to install and use - contains two SATA cables, about 50 cm long - drivers are included - supports raid functionality - very cheap for a 4-port card - recognized my 2 TB drives without problems out of the box, 3 TB are not support as far as I know. - pci is really too slow for four it works...

    Worked out of the box with Windows 7 using the driver CD. Windows automatically discovered an update and installed it. Works perfectly with 2TB drives in the newer shipped cards. Needs no external power connector. Cheeeeeeap! SATA ports are a slight struggle to understand because of the open is I... Read more
