Works with Windows 8.1

Pros: Works great with Windows 8.1. I anticipated problems but there were none.

Cons: Slightly annoying on startup because the program loads before the BIOS and displays an option to configure it. It delays startup of Windows by a few seconds. To me, having the extra two drives is worth the wait.

Works, but not fast.

Pros: Very cheap.

Cons: Slow! It's a PCI-E 1.0a single lane device, so it's getting a bit long in the tooth..

Can't beat it for the price, but don't expect high performance out of this Sil3132-based card.

Will definitely be buying more for my next build
