    Hi kids, anyone still here?

    I've got an NF7S v.2 that I'll be retiring in the future. In
    themeantime I've got an IDE drive that's growing bad clusters and I
    want to replace it with a shiney new SATA one. And obviously I want to
    take it with me when I upgrade to a newer machine. But my two SATA
    ports are now occupied. I see there are SATA expansion cards out
    there, but has anyone got any feedback on a good one to look at?

    I'd also consider an external device since this could be for backing
    up but I don't want to run it thru a slow USB connection

    Thanks and Happy Holidays!

    C.
