5-0 out of 5 stars Works Great
Got a 160 Gig Maxtor Hardrive for G4 QuickSilver.Only got 127 Gig.Put Sonnet Card in No need to load any software or drivers, Now I get all the space that is supposed to show.152 Gig.No problems.Rom on current shipping models supports large drives.

4-0 out of 5 stars Cool
Great product!!! love the ATA 133 speeds...my only gripe is I can only use 137 gigs of my 160 gig Hard drive...and it comes with the firmware for OS9.... so you have to upgrade the firmware for OSX.

Also I could only connect 1 lage drive per cable. I tryed connecting 4 137 gig Hard Drives ( 2 per cable ) wouldn't work...

way better than my old ATA 66 though....yippee!

3-0 out of 5 stars Poor support. Fix for 8MB buffer hard drives a year late!
I purchased this controller card over a year ago (2002.) I connected an 80GB hard drive with an 8MB memory buffer on this controller as my secondary disk. The card seemed to work without problems.

I decided to use this faster 80GB hard drive as the primary disk. So I upgraded to Mac OS X 10.2 and installed the operating system on this disk; that is when the problems started. Intermitently it would stop at the grey (hardware) boot screen. Other times it would crash the machine during the initial boot sequence and drop to the Open Firmware prompt, where the only option was to type shutdown; mini-computer sysadmin deja-vu.

I also noticed this controller could only find the HD if connected to IDE channel one. I tried moving the stock HD to this controller, but it couldn't boot either.

After countless installs of the operating system (MacOS X 10.1 and 10.2) and not have it work, I found the latest firmware for this controller fixes problems with hard drives that have an 8MB buffer. Fixed in March 2003, more than a year after the product has been available!

I recently updated the firmware and can now boot 10.2 from it. No problems so far. The firmware update program is only available for MacOS 9.

Be warned if support is important to you.

PS: Note this is an ATA133 IDE controller for the Mac, NOT an SCSI controller. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Use a new hard drive in an old PC
    I used this so I could add 120GB hard drive to my old PC as a secondary drive. I'm using it to hold video files for when I'm assembling home videos to burn on a DVD. The old BIOS in my computer doesn't recognize a drive that big, and a controller like this allows Windows to see the drive when the BIOS can't.

    It was a snap to install, just snap the card in a PCI slot, connect the drive cable to the card and start the computer. The card I got already had the most updated firmware, so I didn't need to update anything.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Incompatible with Compaq Presario Desktop
    I bought this card to add disk controller channels to my 5 year old Compaq Presario (500 MHz Athlon) desktop.Instructions were simple enough.As stated in the directions, the computer recognized the card and recognized the drives that were attached to the card (DVD ROM and CD burner) but then the computer would not boot.It just sat at the Compaq splash screen forever.If the card was installed, but the drives were not connected, it recognized the card, noted that there were no drives connected and still would not boot.I tried moving the card to every PCI slot in the computer (five of them) with the same results.There seems to be a compatibility issue with this card and the Compaq motherboard.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Definitely 5-stars!
    Easy to install and worked the first time. This is the ATA adapter to buy if you want to add more drives and/or break the 137GB barrier. As a bonus it supports ATA-133, the highest speed version of EIDE, but is compatible with 100/66/33 drives as well (most disk drives are 100 MHz, Maxtor being an exception at 133 MHz). This card allows you to use one channel for 133MHz and another channel for 100MHz drives (up to 2 drives per channel). Nice! Until Serial ATA disk drives drop further in price, this is the way to easily and cost effectively add more (and large) hard drives to your system.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Incompatible with Compaq Presario
    I purchased this Ultra ATA/133 controller card to access a new 160 GB hard drive.As recommended I installed the controller card and turned on the computer.Windows XP would not boot up.According to SIIG technicians, there is likely a compatibility problem between the controller card and my Compaq Presario 7AP140 and/or Windows XP.Double check compatibility issues before installing this card!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good if you need more IDE channels
    I bought this several months ago when I scavenged a CD and HD out my old computer to put into my new one, and discovered I had run out of IDE channels.Installation of the card is a snap under WinXP.Stick the card in, tell Windows where to find the drivers when it detects the hardware, reboot once the drivers are installed and you're up and running with capacity for 4 more IDE devices (as long as you've got the bays to hold them) for not a lot of money.Total installation time for me was about 10 minutes. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Ultimate performance and improvement in my computer speed
I ordered this product because I did nto want to upgrade my desktop with all new mobo and stuff. Bought a 200GB HD during Thanksgiving for only 40 bucks and was not able to be detected by my Win ME/Trigent Cognac mobo (HP XG838 machine. ) Added this card and now motherboard recognizes the HD with proper size.

When I got this card its firmware was already latest. Installed WinXP Pro and now my 800MHz celeron/256MB Machine boots in less than 1 minute. It was a good buy for just 30 dolllars and also got my points with Amzon visa card. I certainly recommend this product who are still using old machines and want to put high capacity drives.

1-0 out of 5 stars Doesn't deliver
Word of warning:If you're using any SATA HDs or trying to hook up a DVD-RW, don't get this card.I was trying to simultaneously install a new IDE 80GB HD and a DVD-RW, and had to get this card because I already had 2 CD drives and a Zip drive taking up all the IDE channels on my motherboard, plus my primary drive was a SATA Raid.The card will install flawlessly on an XP machine, but XP will hang on bootup when attaching a DVD-RW.I tried multiple configurations with this card and ultimately could not get my setup to work.I was also trying to install the 80 GB HD on the card, and if you have SATA HD (like I do), then you have to do some serious motherboard BIOS tweaking before the PC will even boot up.It keeps trying to boot straight to the empty drive.Nothing that I tried attaching to this card would work.I'm planning to return it and go with an ATA 133 card with XP specific drivers.

5-0 out of 5 stars Compatible with XP
Even though it doesn't say it, this product is 100% compatible with Windows XP.XP will detect it and install the driver.No need to install the driver from the floppy.It's as fast as an onboard IDE.

4-0 out of 5 stars Works great!
The package arrived before I thought it would and it works the way it is supposed to. I was pleased with how the card was packaged. Over all a good experience.

2-0 out of 5 stars Product works...barely - no support
Bought this for my old Toshiba Infinia machine.Works but still have system board conflict.Can't install Linux since doesn't recognize drive.Have 2 tickets into them, first one for Win95 problem was entered 10 days ago with no response.

3-0 out of 5 stars Bad linux drivers support.
Work's well in my Windows 2000, doesn't work with Linux 2.6 kernels.
Don't buy it if you plan to use it in Linux.

5-0 out of 5 stars Greased Lightning! RAID 0+1 WORKS!!!
FAST is the word! This is precisely what I wanted. I needed to secure data on a 'server' that was also being used as a main computer system. I did not want it slowed down AND I wanted to secure my data.

After reading extensively on the internet, I decided on this card and using acceleration as well asdisk mirroring. RAID 0+1

It works!

However, beware : you need to make sure your bios is upto date and the latest drivers are installed.
This necessitated downloading updated bios and upgrading.

The actual software set up and configuration was easy.

Satisfied and pleased!

3-0 out of 5 stars Truly Fast, but beware of compatibility and tech support
I purchased the Fasttrak TX2000 to improve the capture rate of analog video. I'm using it to stripe two 7200RPM Ultra drives. Now that I have it running, it has exceeded my expectations nearly tripling my capture rate. However, installation was painful. It is known to be incompatible with some chipsets (I have the 815E but the 845 is a known problem) when using an nVidia graphics card. I absolutely could not get both my nVidia GeForce card and the Fasttrak to work together. It is also known not to work with the ATI All-in-Wonder, thought I ended up using the Radeon. Be sure to check your chipset, graphics card, and info on the Promise web site before buying this card. And don't expect any tech support - I submit 6 emails and called them twice. I never got a response, nor was the phone answered. I give this card 5 stars for performance (with a compatible graphics card) but 0 stars for lack of support.

5-0 out of 5 stars Exactly what I was looking for...
I was looking for a way to protect my PC's data when the inevitable hard drive crash comes. And this was the perfect solution for me. I didn't know anything about mirroring a week ago, so I asked a question about it in a newsgroup. Someone suggested getting a RAID card. A little reserach turned up this one. It was easy to install, and relatively easy for a non-techie like myself to configure with my particular PC. I called Promise Technology's telephone support twice during installation and their response was outstanding. Very helpful and right on target. Highly recommend! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Neat card!
    First off, the Sonnet Tempo HD (THD) is different than the picture. It's actually a card with a single PATA channel for 2 regular IDE drives, and a laptop-style ATA connector with space for a 2.5" HDD to mount directly on the card. If you have a laptop HDD lying around from an upgrade or a deceased machine, this is a good card to consider. It's vaguely reminiscent of the "HardCards" of PCs past - those were RLL adapters with 3.5" drives mounted to them.

    The card itself is a nice shade of purple, great for those of you wanting to put this in a PC with a window case, and offers another hard drive for space-strapped rack cases, which is where mine went. It's built on a Promise controller, which has been rock-solid of late, not like the bad old days of ISA slots. No idea if the device offers RAID, but that's not really a concern. The object is more storage, not fancy ways of storing things.

    Interestingly enough, there are two versions listed for this card. One for Windows, and one for Mac. I purchased mine from a "Mac" dedicated store, and put it in a Windows machine. No driver disk was included, but the generic Promise driver downloaded from Sonnet's website had the card up and running in a matter of minutes. It plays well with the Silicon Image ATA controller in the slot beside it, and has offered nothing but quiet reliability since it was installed.

    Installation was standard, just stick it in a free PCI slot, turn on the machine and let Windows ask for the drivers. Installed, formatted the attached drive with NTFS - It didn't like FAT32 for some reason - and away it went. No problems to speak of, and it's as fast as it's going to get using a 4200RPM drive.

    The card is a bit pricey compared to other ATA adapters, which can usually be had for $50 retail, or less online. But, if you need more storage and don't have any free bays, this is the way to go.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Not as easy as it could have been
    I got the card for my G4 733mhz powermac at home. I am in the process of upgrading the mac and this was gonna be the first step and the cheapest step in trying to speed my mac up.

    The box that card came in was nice. But the card did NOT come with any cables, and the cable that was in my powermac was too short to work with the card. Luckily I am a bit of a computer geek and had a couple of extra cables lying around. The manual that came with the card was xerox copies and had 1 staple on the top corner. Not very encouraging, but if they did that to keep the price of the product down i am cool with it.

    I had issues installing the card and the drives. First time i booted up it didnt see the drives. second time it didnt see the drives also but when i booted using the cd and ran disk utility my drives were there. turns out i had the cable going from Slave to Master to Card when it should have been Master to Slave to Card. Finally I got things working.

    I was expecting the new card to speed my boottime but its actually taking longer now. I have my boot drive connected to the card and its taking around 10 or more seconds for it to start booting now. I guess it spends the 10 secs looking for a drives new location. First boot it took atleast 20 secs of just the dark grey apple boot screen with no movement at all.

    Do I regret getting this? Not really. I already have 1GB of RAM and the only other speed upgrade options I had were the ATA 133 card and processor upgrade. This was cheaper and I guess it did speed my mac up a bit when launching programs and browsing images from photoshop. I wont give it a 5 cuz it lacked cables. ... Read more

Product Description

Affordable high performance Serial ATA connectivity for increased performance and data protection. Ideal for PCs and workstations requiring optimum system performance such as audio/video streaming and gaming.

The Adaptec Serial ATA Host Controller 1205SA offers improved system reliability by adding 32-bit CRC error checking for all bits transmitted (command, data, and status).

Parallel ATA provides CRC only for data packets. Serial ATA also features built-in support for first-party DMA to eliminate bottlenecks associated with on-board DMA controllers.

It also minimizes electronic noise that can lead to data transmission errors.

One of the biggest breakthroughs offered by the Serial ATA technology is PC-friendly cabling. The thinner insulated SATA cables are much easier to install than the shorter, wider Parallel ATA cables.

The smaller SATA cabling allows for improved airflow inside the PC chassis for a cooler component environment.

3-0 out of 5 stars Does not work on some Dual G4s
I got this card for my MDD 1GHz DP G4, and was able to easily install it, the only problem being with the layout of the MDD G4, which has a huge heat sink, which makes it slightly
difficult to get the sata wire to thedrive.
Once the system came up, it recognized the drive (Segate 200GB 7200.8) and I was able to format it into three partitions.
Unfortunately I ran into trouble trying to copy any file larger than a few K. Getting the repeating error message:
kernel: SIIG3114ATAR1::handleTimeout: SIIG3114ATAR1 Command handleTimeout for channel(3)
kernel: IOATAController device blocking bus.
After calling SIIG tech support, they quickly determined that I had a Dual G4, and that they had not been able to reproduce this problem (not their exact words) And indicated that it may not work for my system. I am in the process of returning it.
Amazon forces me to give this a rating - so I gave it a 3,since I have no idea how well it works on other systems. ... Read more
