  • Seems to have come right

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Seems to be working ok now. Get around 70MB/s transfers. Plugs and plays. Slots fine into a 54mm expresscard slot.

    Cons: Was getting around 10-15MB/s when I first plugged it in. I used the standard windows drivers and it wasn't happy. Since the CD supplied is a mini one and I have a lot load drive, I couldn't use it. I downloaded a driver from softpedia.com (JMB36X Raid driver) and installed it. I restarted and plugged it in, then for about 30 seconds, my whole system locked up every second in time with HDD activity. After that, the read speeds improved. Just trying it now, system still exhibits this locking up behaviour when I reconnect the drive. This could be something to do with a conflict between the RAID controller and the filesystem present on the device (just a guess - don't know much about it).

    Other: It works, it's cheap. I can now put an SSD inside my laptop and leave all the large files to this puppy.

    Pros: It is plug and play for Ubuntu (actually any Linux distribution should work). I did not need the CD.
    I get consistently over 70MB/s for my external disk while connecting to USB2.0 would achieve up to 25MB/s (variable, depends on CPU load and size of files).

    Cons: I did not find any.
    I'll write in the comments if it breaks down too soon.

    Other: It is worth to invest in eSata for your external storage. USB 2.0 is not fast enough, and the throughput highly depends on the size of files, and the CPU load.
    I wish the packaging mentioned that it supports Linux.

    Pros: * Very cheap compared to other alternatives in our local internet computer shops (30% of prize of cheapest)[CZ]. * It works like a charm with my netbook Asus N10J. With Windows 7 (32bit) no driver CD is needed, just launch Search for new devices in the Hardware Manager. * Advantage of using eSATA instead of USB to connect external HDD drive is great especially with this slow-CPU(Atom) netbook. * Speeds measured with CrystalDiskMark + Samsung 500GB (HD501LJ) disk in Transcend external Disk case: Sequential Read : 72.456 MB/s Sequential Write : 78.357 MB/s Random Read 512KB : 31.539 MB/s Random Write 512KB : 54.271 MB/s Random Read 4KB : 0.441 MB/s Random Write 4KB : 1.195 MB/s Test Size : 100 MB Date : 2010/04/03 23:10:37 ( Compared to USB connection: Sequential Read : 26.546 MB/s Sequential Write : 21.520 MB/s Random Read 512KB : 18.213 MB/s Random Write 512KB : 21.440 MB/s Random Read 4KB : 0.404 MB/s Random Write 4KB : 1.228 MB/s Test Size : 100 MB Date : 2010/04/03 23:52:03 )

    Cons: No cons so far.

    Other: For now I am satisfied with this buy. I hope it will last for long enough :)

  • First flush eSATA card I found for laptops

    posted by awdark on 17:45:01 G10T 13/10/2009 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: It is flush with the laptop so it looks nice. I connected a SATA laptop drive and I managed to transfer a large file at 60mb/s (according to vista's speed meter) Did not need drivers for Vista 32 or Win7 64bit.

    Cons: Driver disk is unreadable. A bit thick so it is hard to insert and pull out without a esata cable connected to it.

    Other: Nice card to have, much better than going through USB2.0.
