Hi all, I am looking for a cheap eSATA card, preferably PCIe.
I wonder if anyone has recommendations for cards, brands or chips/drivers.
I am somewhat inclined to prefer a device that uses AHCI, as it is
Here are a couple I was considering:
MASSCOOL PCI-e 4 port SATA2 (SIL3132 Chip) Model XWT-PCIE10
Any day, UPS should be dropping off a 2-port SIL3132 card from
NewEgg. I'll tell you how it works.
StarTech 2 Port PCI-Express eSATA/SATA (1 Int + 1 Ext) Card Model PEXESATA2I
(uses (jmicron) AHCI)
Since I've already got a jmicron chip on my mobo, I decided not to
possibly confuse Linux by adding another jm363 unit.
