Anyone use this? I saw it on Ben's Bargains and thought about getting it...it's got $1 shipping, so $16 total.

That thing is going to be limited by the 133 mb/s transfer rate of the PCI bus, and it doesn't look like that card support RAID. Do you need the additional ports or can you just use the ones that are on your motherboard?

Well I wanted that becuase I can't seem to get another Serillel2 at a reasonable price so I'm stuck with a Serillel0 that isn't recognized by the mobo.

And it does software RAID 0 or 1...is a software RAID not as good as a hardware RAID?
