Recommended Sata Controller?

newjughead
Good day, can anyone recommend a 4 port Pci-e sata 2/3 controller card that is affordable and will work with Dvd-rw drives and 2tb HDD? Thanks for your time.

    Well, the cards I looked at did not specify that they could not be used with optical drives. But, neither did they specify that they work with optical drives.

    As most of the plug-in SATA cards are designed for use in setting up RAID arrays, they would not be tested with optical drives.

    The only 4 port SATA card I found that might work is the High Point Rocket 640. This will work best in a 4X PCIe slot.

    Most of the other 4 port cards that I did find are designed for a server application and may only support hard drives.
