    Perfect for my DVD drives
    Nice card, updated to the non-RAID bios and am using it for my DVD drives. I can now use the 6GB mobo ports for my 6GB drives and this for the slower optical drives. Still, I get great speed from them, rip an average DVD in 5-8 minutes and burns disks nicely too.

    Dealing with MonoPrice is as awesome as ever!!

    PROS: Small footprint card. Works as advertised. Bios flash utility in Device Manager "Properties" in Windows.

    CONS: None so far.

    Works well for the price
    I needed 6 SATA ports, and I had three PCIe slots, so three of these fit the bill nicely. The BIOS was an older version, and I changed it to the non-RAID BIOS without a hitch. I'm using it with the original Windows Home Server based on Server 2003 and I haven't seen any issues at all. You will want to visit the support page at www_siliconimage_com to get the other BIOS. Just load the drivers, and one of the tabs in the drivers property window has the flash utility.

    PROS: Cheapest way to add SATA ports to your system. They didn't seem to add a measurable amount of power consumption to the system. Very small cards.

    CONS: The ports on the card don't support locking SATA cables.

    Elastix/Asterisk PBX
    I have several of these installed in Elastix/Asterisk PBX servers running RAID 1 and have never had a problem with them. Thanks monoprice.

    PROS: Inexpensive

    Easy installation

    CONS: None at this time.

    Works Great with unRaid
    I picked up this card to use some of my PCI-e slots in my unRaid box. It just dropped in and worked right away (as expected under linux).

    I don't have any recommendations on using this card's internal raid support. UnRaid simply uses this as generic high-speed SATA ports.

    PROS: Inexpensive, simple, fast and supported

    CONS: I have not used the on-board RAID

    I love this card
    I've used this card in several unRAID servers. It is perfect for squeezing in an extra 1 or 2 SATA drives at full speed, no PCI bus bottlenecks. I don't use the onboard RAID functions, so I can't comment there. However, if you just need a simple PCIe x1 SATA expansion card, you can't go wrong with this SIL3132 card.

    PROS: Cheap. Fast (enough). Works, no configuration needed. Physically small.

    CONS: None.

    Great for the price
    Just to add to the previous reviews, if you want to use the card without raid, let it install automatically. Then go into the properties under device manager and there you will see the tab to allow you to flash the bios to the non raid version. Restart and install drives for non-raid. You don't need a drive attached to the card to do this, at least I didn't. I was looking at the dos programs for flashing and then found the tab under the device properties. Works fine with Windows Home Server and an older Biostar TForce 6100AM2 motherboard. Would like to test to see if it works on the (x16) PCI-Express Bus since I am limited on slots. Haven't tried this setup yet. Many x1 cards only work in the x1 slot. Good buy for the price and fast shipping with the USPS option.

    Excellent value
    I'm using this card on a WHS 2011 system and I'm very happy with it. WHs 2011 is built on 2008R2, but what works one, doesn't necessarily work on the other. This card works well for a 2 port controller.

    PROS: Inexpensive,

    CONS: None

    The small, low-profile SATA Pci-e card installed without a hitch. Simply plug it into your motherboard, boot up your OS, let it find your card, install drivers from the CD and you're good! I am not running mine in RAID, I simply attached a single 1tb SATA drive to the PCI-e card and Windows XP found it without a problem.

    I tried using a higher-price different brand card bought elsewhere, and it failed to keep a connection with the HDD, but Monoprice's card works great!! Would definitely buy again.
