Comments, Questions & Reviews:
Drive Size Limitation by Dave
I noticed that on their website, StarTech says that the card can support a drive of 750GB or below. I have a 1TB drive, and using a similar card, I couldnt access the drive properly. I imagine that this card would have the same problem with a drive larger than 750GB.
Here's the link to the info
Max hard drive size by Andy Bell
What is the maximum size of hard drive it will support, can I build a raid array with four 2TB drives?
I doubt that it has an inbuilt maximum as such, it should certainly handle 2TB drives. Yes you can set up a 4 drive array.
Can I use 2 cards by Des
I already have one of these cards in my home server - but now find I need another for more drive expansion, can I use 2 of these cards in the same PC / Server without any confilcts ?
Compatible with AT5NM10-I ? by Mart
Is this sata controller compatible with the AT5NM10-I that you stock?
If not can you advise me of a suitable sata card.
Should be compatible, yes - although doing so would use up the only PCI slot on that motherboard.
Raid functionality by Bill
Does that mean that I can create a RAID array using this card and install Windows on the Raid? My motherboard does not support Raid - only Intel Rapid Storage
Yes you can do that with this card.
