4 Port SATA Serial ATA PCI RAID Controller Card - Silicon Image

Why throw away your old PC just because you need a new drive and cannot find a good PATA IDE drive for it? Add four independent SATA-I ports to your PCI equipped computer and enjoy the benefits of the optional software RAID configuration for added speed and/or data security with this adapter card from Monoprice!

With SATA being the standard for the past few years, it is getting harder and harder to find a good PATA IDE drive for older computers. However, as long as you have an open PCI slot, you can add this adapter card, which gives you four SATA-I (1.5 Gbps) ports, so you can use the newer drives.

The card comes with an optional RAID utility, which lets you configure a RAID 0, RAID 1, or RAID 0+1 setup on two or more of the SATA ports. You can have one RAID 0 or 1 setup and two independent SATA drives, two RAID 0 or 1 sets, or a single RAID 0+1 set. The card uses the SIL3114 chipset and will work in a 32-bit 66 MHz PCI bus.

It includes drivers for Windows® 98SE / ME / NT4 / XP / Server2003 / Vista® / Server2008 / 7 (both 32 and 64-bit where applicable) and for various versions of RedHat, Fedora, and SuSE Linux systems.

Good product

Pros: Does what it's supposed to do, that is various RAID arrangements, very well.

Quite inexpensive for a card that supports 4 hard drives in various configurations.

Cons: Not really a con but a fact of life, the presence of this card, or any other RAID card, will increase boot time. This is simply the price to pay for having a RAID card installed regardless of brand. Fortunately, the "delay" is only a few seconds.

A real con: it does NOT display the SMART status of the drives connected to it. This is an important omission. and the reason I rated it card 8/10. Had this feature not been missing it would have earned a 10/10.

It does its job reliably and without any fuss. If it reported the SMART status of the drives connected to it, it could be considered perfect. As it is, it is _almost_ perfect.

Pros: Fast Delivery !

Exactly what I was looking for to complete my home made NAS. Works like a charm! I would recommend it to anyone looking to add multiple drives to their setup!

Pros: Decent price, ease of swapping bios between RAID and storage device.

Cons: Difficulty of location of device drivers. Very poor instructions, no way to swap bios and drivers with software provided on driver disk.

This is a rebranded, reboxed Syba card which if needing correct drivers, sends you to a third different company to get correct software if you can decipher their product coding. This is not Monoprices fault.

I installed the card, it installed as a Raid card. I wanted it to add only SATA ports, so had to reflash the bios of the card, easy enough, as was installing driver. Here is thw problem. This is on an older Dell machine. The adapter card is seen in the system bios, as well as Windows XP. Same with the two optical drives on the card. When you try and use either, you get a code 19 AND a code 28 error. These errors mean drivers are not installed on either the adapter or optical drives. The drivers for the adapter card are installed because device manager sees them unless you try to use the card via the control card managent software. Neither drive came with driver software, nor is there any from the drive manufacture as they utilize the Windows system drivers. This leaves me with two unusable drives as well as an unusable adapter card. The same code problem shows up when trying to set card up as a Raid card as well.

Mr. Lingo, therr is no need to replace the card. I ended up using it as additional SATA ports ( JBOD) in another computer and it worked perfectly.

Pros: Impressive. Works. Plug and play.

Cons: None.

Don't let the "RAID" word scare you off. I do not have RAID and installed this card in an old MSI K8 neo mobo with two 525 MBs SSD slipped in a 3.5 inch hotswap bay. I use as a "normal" PC on a LAN network. Worked from a cold boot with no OS. All I had to do is sit back and load the XP Pro OS. PC is powered up 24/7 since install on July 5th 2013 still working flawlessly. No meltdowns.

Breathes new life into an old system. Much faster with the SSD's.

Other people might think twice about tossing that old ATA drive computer gathering dust in the attic. With this little adapter, bring it into the 20th century for "brains" to run CAM mills, lathes. 3d printing. Headless LAN server, storage or a "smart" Linux based internet/LAN firewall etc. Or even building cheap systems others throw away for charity and make yourself the hero of the handicapped thereby adding to your self esteem and saving some landfill space !
