3 out of 5 eggsYou cannot use this just for the extra ports!

Pros: Low price for a 8 port raid card, has bios, looks easy to work with (did not configure any raids)

Cons: This card CANNOT be used just to add extra sata ports to a computer! My intention was to use this for Linux md raid but the drives do not show up. It wants to initialize them, which will destroy all data.

Other Thoughts: Rated 3 eggs to try to keep it neutral, the card itself may not bad for what it's suppose to do, I suppose, it's just a bummer that it cannot act as a non-raid card and just present the drives to the OS. Returning and will try to find a non-raid card for my needs.

5 out of 5 eggsGood card to graduate from a HBA card.

Pros: -Latest firmware as of this review, 7/26/11, supports 3tb hard drives.
-Great customer service from adaptec.
-Management software is very easy to use
-No problems while during setup.
-Worked with no problems on my Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD4-B3.

Cons: -As of 7/26/11 no EFI firmware for this card. if you have a motherboard with a uEFI bios this card will not work.
-Limited supported RAID levels.
-Requires adequate airflow over the ROC to keep it cool. Adaptec could have shipped with a better heatsink or one with a fan.

Other Thoughts: gigabyte ga-z68x-ud4-b3

This is my first non-HBA raid card. I previously had a highpoint rocketraid 2310 which worked very well. When I first got this card I was on windows xp and would receive the "delayed write failed" message and my serial number was also showing an error whenever I tried to register it on the adaptec website.

I contacted customer support to resolve both issues. Once the agent, Norman(great help), had input my issue with my serial number he gave me technical support for my problem. The serial number issue was resolved the next day and I never did resolve the windows xp error because I upgraded to windows 7 and have not had an issue since.

11 of my 15 hard drives are configured in JBOD. I have a RAID 10 array with 4x2tb seagate green drives that spin at 5900rpm. With HD tach this array benchmarks at 919MB/s burst and 405MB/s sustained read. I am very pleased with this card so far, would buy again.
