Customer Review

on 25 May 2011
A while back I had an Acer Aspire EasyStore H340 Windows Home Server that was running out of space and also took a long time to backup using conventional USB 2.0 ports. Since that server has a built in eSata port on the back, I though... great lets buy a dual disk eSata enclosure and that will fix the problem! Right? Wrong!
The eSata port (controller) on the back of the server does not support port multiplier. The server would not see any disks even if they were configured internally in the enclosure as a big single RAID 0 virtual drive.
The solution was this card. It solved all problems and still gave me an extra port if I in the future want to add yet another enclosure to the server to increase the now 10TB of available store to possibly 14 TB. Just thinking now that the 1st hard disk I ever had, had a wooping 5 MB of storage...
I have now the 2 disk enclosure of which 1 is adding to the disk pool in the home server and the other is used for (very fast) backups (well much faster than USB 2.0 in any case).
Very happy with the card so far. If you find yourself in a similar situation you can't go wrong with this card.
