The only one I have ever used was a cheapy one from deal extreme[0] This
actually worked fine (minimal testing other than formatting and some
file copies.) It was being picked up before the internal sata controller
and reordering the drives which was a pain. I cant be sure if you would
get one with the same chipset as me or anything though as its a noname
brand from somewhere in china.
