The Newer Technology MAXPower 6G PCIe eSATA 2-Port RAID Controller Card is an ideal choice for efficient, high-speed, low-cost, RAID capable connectivity for your Mac or PC. The Newer Technology PCIe RAID controller card features port multiplier support. With this controller card you can add two eSATA ports of data transfer rates up to 500Mb/s. It supports RAID levels 0 / 1 / 5 / 10 or non-RAID independent / span JBOD for up to 10 drives.

Port Multiplier Support
The Newer Technology PCIe RAID controller card, in addition to supporting any single or dual eSATA enclosure also supports port multiplier enclosures to connect up to 5 drives into a single eSATA port. By supporting port multiplier enclosures, the RAID controller card can provide massive storage and increased data protection by connecting enough drives for protective RAID arrays such as RAID 0, 1, 5 and 10.
Adds Faster Than Factory Interface to Mac Pros
The Newer Technology PCIe RAID controller card, by connecting an eSATA interface equipped device, offers faster backups, file transfers to high-end audio/video editing, thus, taking the data transfer performance to an entirely new level. Optimally compatible with Mac Pro models and PCs with an available PCIe 2.0 slot, the Newer Technology PCIe RAID controller card works with any eSATA interfaced equipped external hard drive or optical drive to deliver significantly faster data transfer rates over the fastest factory equipped Mac Pro interface of FireWire 800.
Future Ready Yet Fully Backward Compatible
With the installation of this card you get immediate speed. This also makes a Mac Pro or PC ready for greater speeds in future. The Newer Technology PCIe RAID controller card is fully backward compatible with PCIe 1.0 slots as well as previous generations of SATA 1.5Gb/s and 3Gb/s drives.

                I just bought this controller card last week and it did exactly what I needed it to do with no hassle. It made it possible for me to cheaply and easily turn my Thermaltake BlacX Duet Harddrive dock into a RAID. It was definitely the best and most affordable way to get that done, so I was happy with it.

                        I bought this for my DroboS and then found out it won't work with the Drobo. I called Max Power and they told me that I needed the less expensive card for the Drobo. I purchased the MAXPower 6G PCIe eSATA (not RAID) and it works great! It's probably a great card, but hopefully this review might save someone the trouble (and money).
