All raid controllers support only 1.5 Gb/s SATA, so... how i can get raid ?

According to that i can use any adaptor.
My HDDs are 3Gb/s SATA II, but on adaptors NOTES they support only 1.5 Gb/s SATA.
So question is - Adaptors that works with SATA will work with SATA II ?

Re: RAID Ctrl for SATA II drives.

your SATA II drives should automatically downgrade to SATA I when connected to a SATA I card. Some Seagate drives have a jumper you can set to force SATA I operation, but I haven't found that necessary as of yet.
