  • Silicon Image SATA controller

    posted by Bringer on 06/22/2008

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month


    Kinda cheap for 4 extra SATA connectors comapared to other cards selled locally where i live.


    Hard to fit, my first time ever i have to use a file on any hardware to get clearance enought to get the card to fit in the pci port.

    Driver cd is loaded with drivers for many other cards, so if you are a "noob" with computer hardware its easy to get lost here.


    Ok card, for an ok price, but wont fit all motherboards "out of the box"


    The price is about one third of the price for an "original" Promise controller i fitted recently, that one has only 2 sata connectors.

    Also, the Promise controller needed an oldfashioned diskette to get the drivers proper installed(Who uses 3.5" diskettes now these days???)

    Overall, an ok card, but build quality could be better.
