If you need a few more Sata ports grab one!

From what I can see in my usage is that this works very well and have seen a noticeable performance improvement in bootup times and drive operations.

I could not get the card to go into the BIOS by pressing the F4 or CTRL-S. The first time my PC booted, it locked up with the card just installed.

have 9 of these cards and have NEVER had one issue. The chipset on this card is a SIL3124 and it IS compatible. NEVER, EVER USE THE DRIVERS THAT COME ON THE CD. Those are the first drivers written. I downloaded mine. They all work like a charm.
I am using this card on Windows 7 x32, x64 and Windows Server 2008 without a problem. I am using this card on 2 x ASUS M4A87TD EVO x32 and x64, as well as a Supermicro C2SEA with Windows 7 Ultimate x32 and a Supermicro C2SBC with Windows 2008 x64.

If you have a problem ask for help. The important info on this card is that it is a SIL3124 chipset. Works on Ubuntu, Linux and Windows. x32-bit and x64-bit.

I put it in an older Intel P4 hyper-thread MB that has 150 transfer rate. Now I get 300 transfer rate with two 2TB drives and it works great. It took about a day to figure out how to get the drives to appear in the MB BIOS for booting. You have to assign both drives using the PCI card BIOS. It works with newer Norton Ghost for backup recovery after you make a new boot CD with Ghost.

Card was able to see my 500GB HDD but wasn't able to boot from it.
Booting from CD, could see my drive from linux perfectly, but I'm unable to boot from it and manufacturer didn't help me at all.
User guide it's pretty uselesss.
If you having only a drive in your system take care you needing to boot from another media.

There isn't much to complain about with this card, it worked, as advertised. My only gripe is how the card presented the RAID array to Ubuntu. I was able to build a software RAID from the disks, however it would have been nice to have my disks presented as a hardware RAID, as it shows in the RAID BIOS, instead. Besides that it does get decent speeds. I have a set to 2TB Seagate (ST2000DL003-9VT1) drives, and my array is quite fast even for green drives. Keep in mind though I'm using my disks in raid0 for maximum storage space. I will be migrating to a 3 disk, RAID1 setup soon due to the dropping prices for disks again.

Here is how the card is presented to the OS.

Works flawless in older PCI slot based MAC desktops.

Pros:
Modern chipset
Fully supported my Mac OSX 10.4.11 and up, no drivers needed.
4 internal sata II connections!
Its extremely low cost compared to those other brands (which use the same chips, but they put there brand sticker on).

Cons:
I didn't buy it sooner!

Noted: I have used this in G4, and G5 PCI based MACS with no issues.

Let me start by stating that this is an initial review of the card when not used as a RAID card. I maxed out the SATA ports in my motherboard so I was just looking for a card with additional ports. You may get better read/write speeds with a PCIe card but I all I have left is a PCI slot.

GOOD:
- It comes with the SIL3124 chipset (Host controller with 4 device ports, 3.0Gb/s SATA device). Faster than other cards having the SIL3114 chipset (1.5Gb/s SATA device), at least in theory since I haven't checked its performance.
- Can be used to used up to 4 individual HDDs when not configured as a RAID. I can't comment on the RAID performance since I'm not using it in this manner.
- Although it doesn't say it anywhere, it can indeed be used to add 4 individual drives. Just install the drivers and skip the RAID setup.
- That's about it. It works, not much more to say.

BAD:
- Documentation is terrible.
- Fit is not good. When the card is fully seated in the PCI slot the rear plate will not seat flush against the case. When securing the rear plate to the case with the screw there was a significant gap between the two. Driving the screw in probably resulted in slightly bending the motherboard so I just went in enough to keep it from moving. The screw almost wasn't long enough. I though it could be an issue with my case (Raidmax Super Viper) but my other cards fit perfectly.
- The supplied CD with the drivers was confusing at first. It had drivers for several devices, not just for this card. The best thing is to go to the website and download the latest drivers.

I purchased this card a few months ago for my Samba file server and it has been working, however under sustained heavy data traffic the system will hang periodically.

I contacted their customer support and will RMA the card. I must say their customer service support(at)sybausa.com is _very_ responsive, I have gone back and forth with them for a while and they always respond in 20 minutes tops, even late at night. Even though I wasn't able to use the card I'm giving the product 3 stars just because they stand behind it so well.

Did you know Syba has a 3 year manufacturers warranty? Wow, that's a long time for a budget friendly SATA card.
