Introduction
SPM394 is 1 to 5 SATA Port Multiplier RAID Controller with LCD Module. It is designed to provide SATA port expansion, data protection and performance aggregation at various applications.
SPM394 uses market-proven Multi-port Serial ATA PHY technology and proprietary storage processor to provide very high efficient SATA RAID operation. With an easy configuration scheme, the device can be a pure port multiplier which provides SATA port expansion just like a SATA Hub, or hard-drive performance booster which provides a high performance device seen by host controller or hard-drive data protector which automatically backup data to prevent data loss from hard-drive damage. SPM394 also has advance mode to provide both benefit of performance boost and data protection.
SPM394 is a self-contained storage processor chip which completely frees up the main CPU loading and the SATA ports comply with eSATA specification, making it suitable for use in both internal system and external storage applications

Hi, current leadtime 63 days, really?
yes these are part of a bulk shipping order due in from Taiwan by Ship hence the long lead time

Hello, This piece matches very weel with my need. Just I would like know before ordering if I can use it on a APPLE MAC OS/X. Than you for replying
Henri,
Thank you for your enquiry. That will work with any platform regardless so you can use it with MAC OS/X

Hi,I have a few questions i hope you can answer for me?, 1,Would this controller work with any standard esata port? ( i have a maximus extreme-z,with esata ports i'm hoping to use). 2,would the controller allow me to have more than 1 array,ie could i say have 2 X 2tb drives as a mirror and 2 X 500gb as a stripe then another drive as a hot swap spare? 3,i see the controller has fan controller does it also have a temp input that can control the speed of the fan,depending on the reading from the probe? 4,essentially i hoping to use an old pc case and psu to turn this controller into an esata raid box,would this do what i'm hoping? Thanks in advance for any help offered Best Regards
Hi Pete the unit supports the following Supports PM aware hosts Supports non-PM aware hosts (Configured as Single Volume RAID) so if you connect to standard non port multiplier sata port it should work as a single volume RAID the controller cannot be configured for multiple raid setups the enclosure has temperature management which would allow you to alter the temperature to suit the speed at which any alarm would go off or the fan would adjust. this would be fine to convert an old enclosure into a raid box

This is a superb little piece of kit: I used it to create a raid 5 array using 5 Hitachi 7K3000 3TB drives. It works flawlessly in a WHS 2011 set up and easily achieves write speeds of 175-250 mb/s. Set up is very easy and installation is driverless and without any problems in a new server build using aASUS P8H67-M PRO. Naturally it can be used to set up RAID 0, 1, 2, 3, 5 & 10 as well. Hardware installation requires an empty external 5.25" bay and screws etc. Power is via a standard 4 pin floppy connector. A useful feature is the ability to create multiple raid types (subject to available disks- limit is 5 HDs) using the one controller. Drives over 2TB are supported independently of the mobo bios. If you are looking for a no fuss raid controller this beats all the nasty buggy PCI cards by a mile. It may be a little more expensive than those but in a different league for setup and performance. I cannot recommend this little Swiss army knife of a controller enough.

I was looking for a full hardware based raid5 solution for a server with Sata disks. Found SPM394 and ordered it after reading good reviews. UK price of Span.com was a lot lower than other European countries and Span.com ships to The Netherlands for a low rate. Delivery by Span was fast, communication was good and the device was well packed.

About the device: in one word -> perfect!

- Easy configuration, good instruction with clear text and pictures.
- Low energy consumption
- High performance
- Out of the box support for 3Tb disks (I use Raid5 with Barracuda XT 3000Gb)

Surprises to me:
- No heat production
- fancontrol (although I don't use an extra fan)
- temperature sensor and indication
- sound alert in case of failing Raid

This is how Raid should work, independent of the O.S.
I recommend it to everyone who looks for an easy, cheap but robust and reliable Sata raid solution!

Having only tried this running a three disc raid 5 array (Seagate 500gb 7200 consumer drives), the performance is impressive. Read and write times are pretty much equal transfer speed maxed out around 190MB/s... very happy with that.
