    StarTech.com 4 Port PCI SATA RAID Controller Product Description

    Add 4 SATA ports to your PC through a PCI expansion slot, with support for high-performance RAID array installation
    • Configure for data redundancy, increased capacity or both with versatile RAID support
    • Fit almost any PC case with included low and full profile brackets
    The PCISATA4R1 4 Port PCI SATA RAID Controller lets you add four internal SATA 1.0 (1.5 Gbps) ports to your PC through a single PCI expansion slot, while offering support for several RAID modes or a simple JBOD (Just a Bunch of Disks) configuration. The PCI SATA card provides increased performance and capacity with RAID 0 (Striping), or a redundant copy of your hard drive with RAID 1 (Mirroring). Configuring in RAID 10 (a.k.a. RAID 0+1) lets you leverage both by creating a mirrored copy of your striped disk set. Plus, the SATA RAID card supports RAID 1+S (Mirror + Spare), which uses a third installed drive to automatically replace a failed drive and rebuild the mirrored set – even if it is the boot drive that failed. For the ability to fit most standard computer cases, the card ships with a standard profile bracket installed and includes a low profile bracket for adapting to slimline or small form factor systems. Note: While the PCISATA4R1 card supports any size hard drive in JBOD mode, the max supported drive size when in RAID mode is 2 TB (per port). Backed by a StarTech.com lifetime warranty and free lifetime technical support.

    For me it worked out of the box with Nas4Free (OpenBSD). I had been slightly apprehensive as to whether it would, but no worries.

    Worked a charm on a Dell SBS2003 Server. Too early to tell if performance and relaibilty are good, but so far so good.
    Not clear regarding which driver to use, but correct drivers are provided.

    Used as a business solution for a NAS file server (10 HDD setup) running FreeNAS which is Linux based, the controller was easy to set up and the FreeNAS software had no problems with the configuration, just as simple as fitting it to a free PCI slot, connecting the drives and that's all that was required. For the price a very good product and would definately use them in the future.
