SYBA SD-VIA-1A2S Combo IDE + SATA PCI Controller Card
If you want a RAID controller for the latest hardware in a new computer, then you 're certainly better off choosing a different model. However, for older hardware (or a legacy system) this is a great choice offering solid performance and ease of use as long as you keep its limitations in mind. It installs into a PCI slot on your motherboard and offers a pair of SATA ports along with an older ATA port. This is a great way to build a simple RAID in an older computer or to add some SATA ports to your system, and it also supports RAID 0, 1, 0+1, and JBOD types so you get some decent flexibility. The included software is pretty good, giving you some decent tools for setup and managing your RAID. Plus, this model supports Linux and versions of Microsoft Windows going all the way back to Windows 98.
