  • Silicon Image 4-Port SATA PCI Expansion Card

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    It does it's supposed to do. Can't comment on the RAID features because I only have one 640GB hard drive hooked up. Not having any problems with it and performs at comparable speeds to the built in SATA on my motherboard.

    Cons:

    It was VERY difficult to plug this into the PCI slot. My card seemed to be a bit too thick at one end so I had to force it into the PCI slot, but it still doesn't fit all the way in and the gold connections are still sticking out a bit (even though it's not fully plugged in, it's operating the way it should be). This is not a fault of my motherboard.

    OtherThoughts:

    Would have been nice if it included an e-sata port.

    Bottomline:

    I'm definitely not happy with the build quality, but it's getting the job done.
