    14 months of use
    I was impressed when I purchased the adapters to upgrade my dell inspiron 530. I had only 4 sata ports and needed more. Yesterday (04 Sept 2011), my system locked and for the next 15 hours I removed everything and slowly reassembled my system. The culprit was my sata card. Now I'm back to only three drives and a cdrom. Not sure what I'll do.

    PROS: Great price and performance

    CONS: One of two failed after just fourteen months

    Response from Monoprice
    I understand. It was just an observation. It was good while it lasted. My solution is to retire the other card because I try to keep matched systems..

    Anyway, you guys totally rock!

    Card works just fine in early 2009 Mac Pro (8-core)

    PROS: Ordered this card based on the reviews here and they were right the card works just fine in my recently purchased early 2009 Mac Pro (8-core). No driver install, just plug in and fire up!

    Works with OpenSuse Linux 11.1 right out of the box
    As the title says, it works great with OpenSuse linux 11.1.. Didn't have to do any type of extra configuration or download any new drivers, it just works! I use this card along with, "E-SATA HDD Docking Station (USB+E-SATA)" (PID 5330) and it works great!

    Quick ship, not able to test because I did not check to make sure that my computer had a PCI E slot

    this card works good once i figured out how to use it, put your cable in the main slot or slot 1 for the computer to recognize attached hdd's lol

    Works with Mac Pro and Mac OS X 10.5.8
    The Mac Pro Quad-Core Intel Xeon 2.8 GHz (early 2008) has 4 PCI slots (two 16x and two 4x). This eSATA card must be installed in one of the 4x slots. The card I received was manufactured by Best Connectivity and uses a Silicon Image SiI3132 controller chip. A driver CD is included, and contained the same version of the Mac OS X driver as posted on the Silicon Image support page.

    I've been using it for several days, and haven't had any issues.

    Works fine in x1 slot
    I just wanted to state that it works fine in my PCI express x 1 slot. 2 of the earlier reviews claimed it had to go into a x4 slot, but the manual doesn't support that claim and it seems to run just fine in my box. I have Windows 7 and am using the drivers that came on the CD. I just popped it in and am getting a solid 80 MB/s transfer rate to my external SATA dock.

    PROS: Cheap and seems to work just fine. I have it in a PCI-e x1 slot.

    CONS: None so far.

    Purchased 2 of these for Simpletech 1TB and 1.5TB Pro Duo drives on Vista x64 machines. Installed easily and Vista produced the drivers within a few seconds of logging in.

    Used the IOGear cable from here and didnt have to trim any of the cable to make fit.
