I am looking for a eSATA card that is well supported in Linux. Particularly, I am looking for an eSATA card that works with a linux driver and can handle NCQ. (NCQ should allow the card to operate fast. My card/driver combination apparently does not handle NCQ.) The upgrade may help, since I suspect that there is more support for eSATA drivers in the PCI-e configuration than my current PCI requirement.



This looks like a promising card…

Does anyone have any other suggestions?
