The PEXSAT31E1 2-Port PCI Express SATA/eSATA 6 Gbps (SATA 3.0) Controller Card adds one internal SATA 3.0 (6 Gbps) and one external eSATA 3.0 (6 Gbps) port through a single PCIe slot.

Providing simple connectivity between a host computer and SATA 3.0 internal and external devices, the PCIe SATA/eSATA 3.0 adapter/controller card offers a cost-effective solution for connecting high-speed storage, such as High RPM Hard Drives , Solid State Drives (SSD), and external storage arrays, which in turn allows for easier data backups and archiving. With full support for SATA 3.0 hard drives and data transfer speeds of up to 6 Gbps, the adapter card features a native PCI Express single chipset that provides enhanced compatibility, reliability and performance for external SATA 600 MB/s storage needs.

The controller card is backward compatible with SATA 2.0 devices, providing the versatility to use older storage, and features support for RAID 0 and 1 modes as well as port multiplier capability with command-based and FIS-based switching for connecting multiple external hard drives to a host PC through a single external SATA connection. Suitable for installation in slimline or small form factor computer cases, the PEXSAT31E1 offers a dual profile solution, including a low profile/half-height bracket for easy installation.

Works in linux server but not as expected

Pros: - Works in CentOS 5.8
- Performance is increased by 30% in single dock station with 6Gbps and 4k sector size drive

Cons: Expected twice performance improved based on 3Gbps to 6Gbps speed change but only 30%. But, this is still good.

Not compatible with HP servers?

Comments: It would be nice if StarTech or Marvell (or both) kept a known incompatiblity list. Its the least they can do if they're not going to address compatibility problems (or if the problem is with HP instead of Marvell).

Did not work

Pros: -None

Cons: Same result as previous poster. Tested on HP ML370 G5. This card caused Windows parity errors and was not usable. Updated firmware as suggested by support however they acknowledged that this is a known issue and recommended an older model card.

NOT for servers

Pros: None for our purpose

Cons: Does not work on an HP Proliant DL360 G5 server.
Gives a "NMI: Parity Check / Memory Parity Error" when inserted.
We bought these cards in order to move data from/to the server rapidly. They simply do not work- insert the card, get the error, remove the card the error disappears.
