The Plextor motherboard/SATA compatibility list is so out of date, how does one know if the drive will work in their system?


#5

Intel chipsets are golden, there are few compatibility issues reported.

Nvidia based chipsets are a bit different. I know initially nforce based systems had fits with the SATA Plextors. I believe many of those issues have been resolved with driver updates, tho I can’t be certain as I’m not running one.

I’m not sure about the oher vendors and chipset compatibility. Some would question the wisdom in using those solutions (myself included)… but that is a discussion for another day… :smiley:

It thinking that mb with the ICH5 or 6 chipsets should be ok. I have Intel board which is not on the list, but the chipset is. What bothers me is that Plextor says the PX-755SA “Test was conducted with 2 SATA HDD set up as RAID. Motherboards with 2 SATA ports or less are untested and therefore considered unsupported for this drive model”, and mine only has 2 sata, but is native. I’m thinking it’ll work ok because it supports native SATA. I won’t find out until tomorrow though.

Everything working fine, had it for few weeks now. FYI my mb is Intel D875PBZ.
