Card not working in power down mode.8/13/2007
The card went in fine and worked great with a Seagate 750G. But then overnight I received Delayed Write Failures. All settings failed, each night a Delayed Write and the machine would lock. No info on line, took a week for SII to respond. A new bios helped, but still the machine locks in power down mode. The only way to boot is to force a reboot (force power off). If you never spin down your drives this card works great, 2.6G between Sata drives. I have now replaced this card with a different one and no problems.
