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

    Pros:

    It's very cheap and works as it should. Easy to install. There was 2 sata cabels with the package. Good chipset. Can use both with raid or without.

    Cons:

    Tight fit. You have to carefully force it in the pci slot. Can't use large harddrives than 500 Gb, maybe a firmware upgrade can change that.

    OtherThoughts:

    You get a cd with drivers for alot of different cards, so instead of manually finding the driver it's better to let windows automatically find it for you.

    Bottomline:

    Cheap, good and reliable. Very easy to configure. You get 2 sata cabels with the card. Just remember max 500 Gb harddrives.
