A dual profile solution, the eSATA controller card includes a low profile/half-height bracket for installation in slimline or small form factor computer cases.

worked perfectly, right out of the box

Last month I bought a new desktop, and I wanted to use my eSATA 1TB external with it (yes, I am related to the dinosaurs). I'm really glad I bought this card. It worked perfectly right out of the box, and installation was a snap. Best hardware upgrade I ever did myself. For reference I'm running Windows 8.1 on an Asus desktop with an Intel quad core processor.
