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