It does work but some performance issues in windows 8.1
I bought this to replace a rocketraid 622 card for my external raid cage. It worked fine under windows 7 but i have to say that since upgrading to windows 8.1 there have been some issues with file copy performance. It seems like a caching issue but i'm not sure whats wrong. The drive is current and windows 8 is supported, but when i copy files from any other drive to the raid array connected to this card, it will copy fast at first, then after about 10 seconds it will slow way down and drop to 0kb/sec for a moment, then pick up to around 130mb/sec for a short time and then drop back down to 0, repeating over and over until the copy is completely. I had similar issues on the rocketraid card but was given a beta driver to use and that solved the issue in the past. I have not been able to get an updated driver for this card to solve the issue. It does work, but copy speeds are not great due to all the stops and starts. I may try going back to the rocketraid card if i can. I wish there was another good esata raid card option with good performance that fully supports windows 8.1

Missing dual disk support
This controller works, but didn't work as i had expected. I had an older io gear controller that died and i bought this as a replacement. I had a single esata cable that connects from the controller to a dual drive thermaltake external disk. With my old io gear controller, both disks in the thermaltake would show up with separate drive letters. The crest controller only sees one disk. No matter what configuration i try, when i put a second disk in, the driver seems to hang up. I miss being able to access the second disk.

decent interface for port-multiplied enclosures
I'm using this card in a dell t5610 running ubuntu linux 14.04. I use the card to connect 2 external enclosures, one 4-bay sans digital and one 5-bay sans digital, both loaded with 4tb hgst disks configured as zfs pools. I like the fis port multiplier support; it is transparent and shows disk information as expected. However, with a vantech 4-bay esata enclosure, the individual disks' smart information was inaccessible.I ran into an unusual problem where the external enclosures would rapidly loop through resets with a "read scr" error when i tried to access the disks therein even for simple zpool imports. I replaced the esata cables i was using with some separately-purchased esata cables with perhaps a slight improvement but no resolution of the basic issue. A comment on another esata controller review suggested that this could be caused by low power, but not to which component this was related. I reseated this controller in the "75w" pcie slot (#3 in the t5610 owner's manual) and everything worked at least on a surface level; disks come online with no errors or link resets on connection/mounting. The links do still hard reset during heavy read/write operations but at least they mount and the data is accessible. I wish the power requirement, if indeed it is true, were directly addressed by the manufacturer or included a connector to supplement the pcie power delivery.As reported by iotop, when the enclosures are not going through a link reset, read speeds seem to be sustainable at about 380 m/s and write speeds sustainable at about 100 m/s.

Works as expected

Doesn't work reliably with Windows 10
Does not work with windows 10. Card is not automatically detected by win 10 and the drivers provided are antique (vista and win 7). Gives kmode blue screen errors over and over but when i remove the card things go back to normal. Error is is in driver mv91xx.Sys from what i can tell from the error message.
