Lenovo and Dell computer users should be careful when placing an order for SATA controller card.
  • Built-in Marvell 88SE9215 + JMicron JMB5xx chip, the stability and compatibility of this SATA expansion card have been improved. This PCIe x1 SATA card does not support RAID.
  • Supports Windows 7/8/10/Ubuntu (not support other Linux, Ubuntu does not need driver). Driver installation is required to avoid issues like "not all ports working" "won't power up" "slot empty". Multiple hard drives requires sufficient power so that to avoid "drop channel" "not working" an so on. Using multiple OS only supports Windows. You must turn off the power before pluging the pcie to sata expansion card into motherboard or removing it.
  • Compliant with PCI-Express v2.0 specifications, backward compatible with PCI-Express v1.0. For higher speed, motherboard needs to be PCIe 2.0(GEN2, fastest speed 380-450 MB/s) or above, plug the 8 sata controller card into x16 slot. Old motherboard x16 slot probably reach PCIe 2.0 speed, but other slots(x1/4/8) not. Fastest PCIe 1.0 (GEN1) speed with is 200-300 MB/s. Actual speed depends on PCIe bandwidth of motherboard. If all ports are used at the same time, the speed will be slow down.
  • PCIe x1 interface: This pcie sata controller card is compatible with PCIe x1, x4, x8, x16, not compatible with PCI slot.
