        This is a great raid card that enables you to connect up to 4 large external harddrives to your machine. The card enables the computer to read the drives quickly and efficiently, enabling fast, time saving backups of your raid 0 drives.

              Works as advertized. Definitely needed if you purchase a G-speeed eS RAID unit from G-Tech. Each eSATA port can control a separate RAID tower with multiple drives.

                    I needed an inexpensive but trustworthy sata pcie card to connect some raid drives to my mac computer. Since I'm using the drives to store media for AVID, I wanted something I could rely on for good performance and this card seems to do the trick.

                            Fast, and seems to be reliable after short use as least. A bit touchy getting drivers uploaded as card didn't come with any software or documentation. Also, package inside was already opened -- hope that's not a bad sign.

                                              We had some issues with drives dropping off of our Firewire 800 ports on our Mac Pro. We made the switch to eSATA and every problem that we were having went away.
