What do you want it for? That card is (to be honest) crap. But if all you need is a few extra SATA ports, and have no better option for expansion, then it will do the job. It's pretty pricey for what you get though.

if you have any PCIe slots then you will get much better bandwidth for your drives.

What board do you have, what slots are free, what are you using the ports for, how many ports do you want, and what is the budget?

Then use the onboard ports. Nothing will outperform them, whatever your budget.

As I understand it, the SATA 6Gb/s ports are unaffected so you can use them without issue, and there is less than a 1 in 3 chance your other ports will degrade over time. And by the time you do run in to problems (if you run into problems), the RMA processes will be in place for you to get a new replacement board.
