    I installed this card in a Sony Viao VGC-RA830G running Vista Ultimate. No problem with seeing the card, but when I plugged the Seagate eSATA 750GB Free Agent Pro, system hangs on bootup if cable is plugged into the drive.

    worst, I also tried the Western Digital 1 TB iBook with the eSATA interface. The drive won t even power on even if you push the power switch.

    The siig site doesn t offer much help or info.

    Incompatibility could be with the drive, Vista, or the Sony Viao model. Whatever the case, I have not found an external drive that will work consistently with my system. Card might actually work great, but the incompatibilities I m running into discourages me with eSATA. Hopefully future drivers and updates will eventually resolve my problem.

    When the drives do work, the transfer speed is very noticable compared with USB and Firewire 400.

    Maybe the eSATA is better supported with Windows XP systems.
