hi roger, thanks for the reply,

besides being 100% true, it's irrelevant. I'm not using the card's raid
features. As a standalone drive controller, it should be no different
from a non-raid version (it's HPT302 instead of HPT372) and therefore
should do the job normally i.e. with proper I/O speeds.

yes, they are. I'd be interested in finding out decent and well
supported (linux opensource drivers, preferably in kernel tree) low-end
(cheap) non-raid SATA controllers for 2/4 drives.

best regards,
pedro venda.
