I'll wait for the raid version, integrated intel raid controllers are slow a good rocket raid card with memory is the way to go for larger arrays

69.99 for 2 internal SATA ports, ASUS is charging a measly 30.00 for their U3S6 card which features 2 USB 3.0 ports and 2 internal SATA 6GBS ports. For that 69.99 you could buy the ASUS card have 4 internal SATA, and have 4 USB 3.0 ports. The ASUS seems like such a better buy.

RAID0/1/10 is fine with Intel RAID, RAID5 with any software based controller or just pure software is the slow one, but even then i got a few RocketRaid 2300 cards in service and for a software raid card there quite impressive.

Why not put internal and external connections on one card?

Agreed. If it had RAID 5 and a few more ports I may be interested.

Can any drive on the market fill the 3Gb/s bandwidth without raid?

Bigger lane doesn't mean a drive is capable of a higher speed. Why go with it as a raid controller if no drives are capable of using Sata2 speed? For raid controllers in that price range you can get RAID 0/1/0+1/5/10.

and no - no current gen hdd's will use that bandwidth but soon to be released SSD's will

and falchard RAID5 cards at that price range are rubbish software based ones

Attention all:
If you don't have a high speed solid state drive you won't see a performance increase.

I like the fact something useful is coming out for my wasted slots. I would like to play around with one and do my own benchmarks for fun..

Yeah Asus came out with a card that has BOTH USB 3 and Sata 6Gb at HALF the cost. Now as for RAID functionality that would be a better offer.
