3 out of 5 eggsGreat 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.

3 out of 5 eggsWorks 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.

Documentation is awful. They insist on creating a floppy but that's only needed if this is the boot drive. Otherwise follow these steps instead on Windows:
1) Install the card and attach drive.
2) Boot. Hit CTRL-A to go into Adaptec setup and disable BIOS, it isn't needed and slows down the boot.
3) After reboot and windows tell you found new hardware, stick in the driver disk and let windows search it. Works just fine.
