Update: June 18, 2010. Belkin does not support this card in any Windows 7 system. NONE. NADA. Avoid this product.

While this device does provide a huge improvement in bandwidth over USB, there is a problem with the design of the card.

When Windows 7 64-bit (I haven't tried it on other versions) mounts an eSata drive, the driver classifies this as a "hard disk drive", and not as a "removable disk drive." This misclassification causes NovaStor's NovaBack program to keep files open and makes the removal of the drive impossible without diddling within the Control Panel, Administration, Services, or doing a Shutdown and remove.

So far, no call back from either Belkin or Novastor as to how to fix the problem.

But I am able to transfer ~64 megabytes (not bits) per second from my laptop to the eSata drive, compared with just 19MB via USB.

The card works, but you might have some issues with it if you are using Fedora 11, without the latest yum updates. For my Flextronics 840 machine, I had to pull it out and plug it in a few times before I could get it too work. Sorta hit and miss.

However, with the recent release of 2.6.30, on Fedora 11 I have no problems now.

The only issue I have with the card is the fact that it is sorta easy for the external sata cables to become disconnected.

That is a problem if you disconnect a drive and it is not running a journaled file system, you could wipe it or suffer large amounts of data loss.

The product works great, but I had to download new drivers from the website because the ones delivered on the included CD kept locking up my system.
