Aopen AK77 Plus: Now It's Stable, Continued
Four IDE ports accommodate a total of 8 devices.
Useful: The dual BIOS prevents a total failure of the board in the event of a flash procedure gone wrong. Unnecessary: The manufacturer shouldn't have bothered with the CNR slot. The board does not come with a USB cable for the fifth and sixth port. An optional feature involves equipping the board with what is known as the Dr. LED Panel, which is a slimmed-down version of a port 80 card. The performance ratings of the Aopen are less than impressive, landing in the last third of all test candidates for all benchmarks. One of the reasons for this is simple enough - we only succeeded in getting the board to run in CL2.5 mode.
The packaging of the Aopen board is a real turn-on!
RAID functionality: The Promise Ultra 100 "Lite" is located on the board.
