This is the EXACT SAME CARD as Vantec's

Strengths:
See the Vantec reviews More honest in their advertising than Vantec.
Weaknesses:
Buggy, doesn't do mirroring very well, no monitoring software
Summary:
Same card as Vantec's, but with a different publisher.

No Issues

Strengths:
Works.
Weaknesses:
Not breaking any speed records (only SATA I)
Summary:
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

Strengths:
Cheap
Weaknesses:
RAID 5 failed
Summary:
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

Strengths:
easy to install and seems easy to config - very cheap
Weaknesses:
losses raid and server drives turn off
Summary:
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

Strengths:
Cheap
Weaknesses:
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.
Summary:
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

Strengths:
Works great in half day increments.
Weaknesses:
Need to reboot every 12 to 18 hours as the drives dissapear.
Summary:
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.
