Great, Cheap SATA Card – Silicon Image 4-Port SATA PCI Expansion Card Reviews

posted by Lachy3000 on 06/22/2009 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Works great. Currently have 2x1GB HDD's connected and have not had any issues. Great for when you run out of SATA ports. Will definitely buy a few of these when i get round to building my NAS. Takes up very little space inside the PC.
Cons:
Requires a firmware upgrade to support 750GB or greater HDD. Very easy to do this. Boot XP into Safe mod with command prompt and execute the upgrade exe file.
Other:
Should come pre-flashed with large HDD support.
Bottomline:
Great, cheap SATA card. Will definitely buy more of these in the future.
