Great Card if OS supports it
Pros: Great Card on Windows based systems.
Cons: Lack of support for FreeBSD system even tough it has support for FreeBSD 6 (?) at one time. Also could not get Linux to recognize any SATA drives on it. Only SAS drives seem to work with the Linux drivers.
Other Thoughts: If your in a windows environment this card will work without a hitch. any Trying another card if your using any Unix\Linux systems.

Not Supported on RHEL/CentOS 5.5
Cons: There is not driver for the RedHat / CentOS 5.5 (kernel 22.214.171.124). The latest driver from Adaptec is for RHEL 5.4 (kernel 126.96.36.199).
Other Thoughts: Unfortunately I will have to return it.

Works well but avoid these traps
Pros: Cheapest SAS controller I could find from a decent manufacturer. Good price/performance if you don't need RAID.
Cons: Doesn't come with a SAS cable, only a SATA cable, but its hard to figure that our from the docs. Extra cable is $35.
