3 out of 5 eggsOutdated: does not work with Advanced Format (4K sector) hard drives (i.e. any drive larger than 2TB)

Pros: Ostensibly well-built, with no issues installing the card or updating the firmware. Was dropped a few times while waiting on hold for Adaptec's (non-toll-free) tech support, but they ultimately did their job and after two days of contact the issue was identified. (Thanks Luis.)

Cons: Adaptec's webpage for the 1405 specifically states "Support for SATA and SAS devices with more than 2 TB capacity (up to 512 TB)", but when I added two new Western Digital 4TB Reds, they read only as 1677.90 GiB in Windows Disk Management console, even when partitioned as GPT. (A nearby Windows 8.1 machine was able to correctly identify and partition the drives with no issues.) Turns out the 1405 is an older card and it doesn't correctly handle Advanced Format (4K sector) hard drives, which is virtually every hard drive over 2TB in size, making their large-drive-support claim essentially false. Their tech support completely agreed with me, but Adaptec sales department was only able to admit that it was merely an "incompatibility" when negotiating an RMA. The tech support said that Adaptec's newer Series-6 and Series-7 HBAs should have no problems with 4K sectors; I can't personally verify that.

Other Thoughts: Hardware details: card was flashed to latest firmware (v5.0.1.0 2010-01-08 (!)), Windows Server Essentials 2012, Asus P8B-X (using x4 slot), Intel Xeon E3-1220, 8GB Kingston ECC RAM (KVR1333D3E9SK2/8G), drives in question: Western Digital 4TB Reds (WD40EFRX)

Knocking one egg for Adaptec's misrepresentation on their webpage, and another for their sales team stubbornly claiming that it's merely an "incompatibility", making RMAs difficult.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I have been using mine with Western Digital and Seagate 1TB to 2TB hard drives for about four years without issue.

Cons: Updating the BIOS can be challenging on an older card as in must be done from DOS. I would assume a new card to come with the latest BIOS revision. I tried installing a Seagate 3TB hard drive but the system only recognized 764.26 GB; however this may not be the Adaptec cards fault. A work around for this on Intel system exists, but I have not found one for an AMD system. Forums post suggest this may not be an issue with a newer (2011+) mainboards.

Other Thoughts: I am thinking about trading up to Adaptec RAID 51245.

Processor: AMD Phenon II
Mainboard: MSI k9N2 SLI Platinum
OS: Windows 7 Professional x64

4 out of 5 eggs1405 Controller

Pros: SAS or SATA devices can connect to the same controller.
Simple install.
Linux sees it out of the box, with no download of a driver.
SAS beats SATA badly, think SCSI vs IDE in days gone by.

Cons: 4-lane PCIe required. do not attempt in a 1 lane slot that has a 4 lane connector.

Other Thoughts: 4 eggs, because nothing can be a perfect 5.
