This is the EXACT SAME CARD as Vantec's
Mr. Berzerk from Alberta writes:
- See the Vantec reviews More honest in their advertising than Vantec.
- Buggy, doesn't do mirroring very well, no monitoring software
- Same card as Vantec's, but with a different publisher.

- Not breaking any speed records (only SATA I)
- I've only used it as a SATA controller, not for it's RAID functionality. Used linux raid on top of it and had no issues for well over a year of constant use.
Works good for JBOD
Richard from Calgary writes:
- RAID 5 failed
- Sure, RAID 5 failed on this card but RAID 5 also failed on my motherboard controller. I just plain think arrays are a bad idea. If you value your data don't cheap out and use a RAID5 array. Hard drives are getting very cheap so make a 1-1 copy of your data. I use mine strictly as JBOD.
what a night mare
Robert from Red Deer writes:
- easy to install and seems easy to config - very cheap
- losses raid and server drives turn off
- installed SBS 2003 on it - worked good for enough to transfer all my data to it- then the raid fails and I thought that it was the motherboard on the server, but it turns out that it was the raid card- I lost all my data! Don't ever buy this product... unless you want problems!
Not impressed by this card
Steve from Sherwood Park writes:
- Seems to install fine, seems to work fine, and then presto...poof goes your raid drive. Same problem as buddy above posted...after a few hours the drives "disappear" from your system. A reboot brings them back, but then the same thing happens.
- Not impressed and as I've only had it a few days it's going back and I'm getting a better quality card. I have no tolerance for this sort of thing.
Save your money - spend a little more on a better RAID 5 card
Ranger from Calgary writes:
- Works great in half day increments.
- Need to reboot every 12 to 18 hours as the drives dissapear.
- Installed in a windows server 2003 environment. The drives would dissapear every 12 hours. Had all service packs, updated the BIOS - same results. Bought a new mother board - same behaviour - drives would dissapear. Installed server 2008 - same thing - drives would dissapear after 12 to 18 hours. Got a replacement card - same thing. Don't buy this card - save your $$ and put it towards a better RAID 5 card.
