Works out of the box
This is a great addition for anyone looking to add more sata devices to their computer. I personally needed more ports to accommodate more hard drives in my newly-installed sata backplane, and didn't want to use port multiplier technology due to concerns over bandwidth constraints. This card is pci-e 1x and works like a charm; i'm running under ubuntu 9.04, and literally didn't need to perform any setup beyond installing the card and plugging in my drives. The featured sil3124 chipset is widely supported, which is one of the reasons i went for this model.Good price, great value--why get a card with anything less than four ports if you're going to install one anyway?--and works like a charm. Highly recommended. Note that the card as well supports raid functionality, but i'm not using it as i've already got a software raid running via mdadm under linux.
By Lukas Caron
Works fine, a bit expensive
First of all, this is not a real (hw) raid card, raid functions are implemented in the driver. For me that is ok, i did not need it for that. I am using this card under linux (ubuntu 9.10) for a software raid array with the linux kernel software raid (mda), not using the drivers by silicon image. I actually flashed the non-raid bios available from silicon image's site and you should too unless you want to use their raid drivers.Building the same array (same drives, same kernel, same everything) using the sata ports on the motherboard (foxconn 785g) resulted in constant failures of the array. Switching to a gigabyte mb made things better, but still not perfect. With this card i have zero failures for weeks. So as a 4 ports pci-e sata card, it works like a charm with recent linux kernels.The biggest negative is that it is way too expensive for what it is good for. It should sell around $30 like the pci (non pci-e cards from the same manufacturer with the same chipset do. Strangely i found outletpc to be cheapest, even if not by much.

Dell users beware
Bought this for my dell inspiron (bought in 2010)... Won't let my computer boot. Just sits there at a black screen. I didn't expect this to be absolute best quality with great support, since i had a similar card for a pentium 4 dell i used to have, but that card worked fine. This one just causes my machine to sit idle at a black screen and not boot up. Check the reviews on [...] too, other users had the same issues.
By Michaele Bohlmann
Awesome!
This is a great card, especially for the price. I have it running 4 sata drives and first on xp than on 7 and it works great.
By Arthur Hughes
Works as expected
This card had worked reliably for me for several months so far. Recognized with no drivers needed on my ubuntu 10.04 system.
By Patrick Gaillard
This was d.O.A when i got it.
I installed this controller, and everything went in smooth, i needed another sata hookup, and i though this would do the trick. Wrong!! First of all i could not load the drivers from disk that came with the package, then i went online to download drivers, it was not reconized on my computer, no download. What the "h" is going on! I done a system check and found the unit its self was not working properly.I waited to long to send it back, because i did not install it right away. That's my fault, no problem! Maybe someone eles has a good one i am sure, but this one did not work for me. Not happy i have to order another!!!
By Isabel Dominguez
Problems, problems, and problems
This card brings me bed luck, because another hard drive attached to this card is dying. It seems to work perfectly with two hard drives, but my systems hangs with 4 hard drives running at once, and i do not see anything in the logs. I have sandy bridge based system with ubuntu 11.04.

Raid **beware**
I swear by sil cards as they have worked flawlessly for me in the past (have 6 running in older machines). This one came with a bios from 2006 - and it failed to boot my existing os. Standard procedure is as follows: 1. Install the card. 2. Boot the machine. 3. Install the driver. 4. Reboot the machine. 5. Shut down machine, move the sata cable to the raid card (id0 is the second connector from the face - 1 | 0 | 2 | 3). 6. Turn on the machine. The card is suppose to work even if the motherboard bios fails to recognize it, however, all i kept getting was failure. Flashed the bios to the latest 2010 version. Rebooted and all was well.Beware** if you do not feel comfortable performing a command line bios update, this is not the card for you.

3124-chip hotplug not working
I intended to have 4 sata ports instead of 2 with my present controllerthis card uses silicon image 3124, my other card uses 3132.This card froze my 32-bit linux kernel when hot-disconnecting drive, a question that works fine with my other cardbios was many years old, this is a 2005 hardware designmy advice is to go for a card with a more modern chip
By Miriam Rodriguez
Great
I wanted to add more sata devices to my computer and this hardware helped me so much, anyone in the same boat with me should definitely consider purchasing one of these.
