Bought the card after reading the reviews and seeing people could upgrade the bios using the SiI bios update utility to a newer version or to remove the pseudo-raid functionality; as a user of ZFS, the only thing the raid functionality did for me was to extend boot time. Unfortunately the card I received has a WinBond W39F010 Bios chip which is *not* supported by Silicon Image's Bios update utility. Seeing as how Syba doesn't make Bios updates for their products (they generally rely on the chip manufacturer), it's pretty safe to say this card cannot be upgraded from the bios it came with (which for me was a Bios from 2006 -- the latest is from 2010). There's no telling what the card can or can't support going forward (I don't have any AF drives to test with this card to see if it recognizes it or not), but I'd stay away from this card until Syba or Silicon Image releases a utility to update the card (or you can always replace the bios chip with one that's supported if you're a fan of...

I purchased over $300 in PCIe eSATA cards trying to find one that would work correctly and reliably with my 8-bay Hard Drive Enclosure ( eSATA 8-Bay Hot-Swap 2.5/3.5-Inch SATA III Hard Drive Enclosure with UASP (S358BU33ERM)) using Windows Storage Spaces. Although they all had port multiplier support, they exhibited a huge range of frustrating issues, despite generally being more expensive than this one, ranging from not seeing all disks, to driver blue-screens, to sporadic transfers, to random disconnections. This one, at last, is a card that just works. I've been using it for a few weeks under heavy CPU and disk load, including a test where I rebuilt one of my disks, and both the card and the drivers are solid, and can transfer to all 8 disks over a single eSATA cable at the max attainable rate for my setup. This is the card I've been looking for for years, and I'm happy to have finally found it.
I have tried 8 different mediasonic cards they either died in a few days or came that way all 4 of these Syba cards worked right out of the box with native drivers (windows 7) with my mediasonic 4 disk enclosure. These cards were recommended by Mediasonic's tech support. If that is not an endorsement I don't know what is. I wish I started with these cards. SIL3132 chipset makes this card hot swappable. After two weeks of struggling with other brands i highly recommend this product.

Save $10 and buy the usb 2 version of the 4 drive enclosure and spend $20 on this card you will be much happier
