Pros: Great Card, if it worked with my Dell T110 II

Cons: I bought the card, and found it is incompatible with a Dell T110 II . I tried to return the card, and was told a 15% stock fee would be added.I found this incompatibility, and hopefully adaptec will add this to the list. Below are the emails:
From Dell"
I discussed the issue with some of my coworkers and the general consensus is that the RAID controller isn’t supported in this system. I would explore switching to an H200 or H300 RAID controller. At least if they have issues, we have an escalation path since they are supported and we can find a solution to the issue. I’m sorry for the bad news. Please let me know if you have any other questions. I’d be glad to help any way I can.

From Adaptec:
Thank you for your update and the information provided by Dell. We are submitting a report to engineering to have them investigate the issue further. Unfortunately, there would be no ETA as to when a fix may be available. You can use the authorization form below to return the controller to NewEgg for credit or exchange. You will need to fill in the controller TSID and serial number and return the card directly to the place of purchase.

Best Regards,
Adaptec by PMC Technical Support

The Adaptec Team stated they will purchase a Dell T110 II for testing. This card does work on the Dell T110, but its the II that will get you.

Other Thoughts: I was disappointed to hear that I would have to pay a re-stock fee. I understand its "POLICY" but if the card worked, as expected, i would never even called adaptec,Dell, and then New Egg. It took hours to make these calls, not to mention the 2 week time I spent trying to get the thing working. Below is what I did..

Customer updated the card using the T310 and everything works fine, when the card is moved to the T110 II he is not able to boot to anything.
Card post and he has 2 Raid 1's but system will not boot to CD Rom.

He tried to change all settings in the motherboard with no luck. Tried different slots, the boot order is correct, no other changes can be done. Other recommendation will be to check with Dell if another BIOS change can be done to fix the issue.

Possibly return card to Newegg as incompatible.
He tried every single setting in him T110 II.

Updated BIOS in a T310 and everything works fine in this other system.

Customer will try as last resource installing OS using T310 and then move the card and drivers to the T110 II and see if that works fine.
Customer By Phone (Andrea Chacon) (09/09/2014 11:53 AM)

3 weeks.
Customer By Phone (Liz Brainard) (09/08/2014 10:24 AM)
Dell T110 II BIOS 2.7
7805 BIOS 30860

When the controller is installed the system will not boot to any media. He gets a message "efi_driver supported 10 open already error 14". He's tried different slots.

Suggested he update the system BIOS to 2.8 and use another system to update the controller BIOS to 32033. Try to find the system BIOS setting fail safe or optimized default and try different slots after the BIOS updates. If still not working try disabling anything on board that won't be used.

3 out of 5 eggsFast, Bad Management Software

Pros: Running 2 arrays of 15K Drives with fantastic throughput and responsiveness. Makes the system feel almost like SSD disks.

Cons: Price
web based management software is terrible.
Was not able to perform any significant functions using it and had to reboot into BIOS based configuration.

Other Thoughts: Running a raid 10 and a raid 1.
Data transfer is super smooth and almost 300MB/s write with Cheetah 15k.
Windows server 2008 R2.
Had to read into RAID driver install directions becuase driver install failed to show any volumes. Official fix is to install the driver twice lol. For this price come on, but works after that.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Worked right out of the box on Server 2012R2. Using it on an Asrock c226 WS motherboard to run a small server with 6x3TB WD Red drives in RAID 5.

Had no issues getting into the Maxview software (although Windows Server's security in the web browser gets in the way), and actually found it to work quite well. Had no problem flashing to the latest firmware over the network from a different PC.

Performance has been great.

Cons: None that I've experienced.

Other Thoughts: I previously tried an "entry level" LSI card, before upgrading to this one; the LSI failed to work because the motherboard was PCI-E 3.0. I have been nothing but pleased with this card and the associated software to set it up.

1 out of 5 eggsDisappointing

Pros: relatively fast (though not much faster than my 4-year old LSI 9650-8LPML with 1/4th of its cache memory), accommodates 4TB NAS drives and 3TB desktop drives for its array.

Cons: maxView Storage Manager software is the worst piece of hardware management software I've ever seen. I still can't get it to change or accept any login credentials. somehow I've never had this problem with 3DM2, which is a very similar Web management interface for 3ware LSI controllers. I have to use command line arcconfig, which is cumbersome and makes controller and array management harder than it should be (it could've been acceptable 20 years ago, not now)

Other Thoughts: if Adaptec aims to be a player in the prosumer and entry level IT market, they need to work on their horrible software. setting Apache Tomcat as the foundation for their Web management interface (and all related configuration and operational issues)? really?

bottom line: I will stick with 3ware. I bought this card only because it was $100 cheaper than currently and than comparable ARECA card, and by supporting PCI-Express 3.0 promised better performance.

compared to 3ware 9650SE with a BBU unit, I'm seeing maximum 20-25% better performance in RAID5 arrays than RAID6 array on 9650SE (with cheap consumer-level disk drives sporting only half the cache of the ones on Adaptec). running this Adaptec card on ASUS P9X79 WS motherboard. the 3ware controller is running on a 4-year old X58 Gigabyte motherboard.

this card can be described with just one word: DISAPPOINTING.

1 out of 5 eggsMajor issues with RAID expansion

Pros: - relatively inexpensive for 8-drive configuration out of the box,
- brand name,
- 1GB of DDR3 ECC memory for cache.

Cons: - major problems with extending RAID arrays, and nothing seems to work
- if you want MaxCache feature, pony up double the money for the Q model. yeah, like I'm going to fall for that.

Other Thoughts: At first I defined 2 RAID 5 arrays: 4 WD Red 4TB drives in one array, and 3 Toshiba 3TB drives in the 2nd array. After some time I removed all data and partitions from another of the Toshiba hard drives (the exact same model as the ones already in RAID 5 array) and attempted to expand my 2nd RAID 5 array to use this drive.

Not possible. MaxView doesn't let you do it. You can only assign the 4th drive as a local or global spare.

I managed to copy all data from my 3x Toshiba RAID 5 array onto the other array (4 x WD Red 4TB in RAID 5), but still can't create a new RAID 5 array consisting of the 4 Toshiba drives - whether I use MaxView, or whether I boot up into the controller BIOS.
This is unacceptable.

I used to like LSI controllers and now I know why.

I don't mean to be overly critical of this storage controller, but in my experience it's a garbage and a major time waste. Extending an existing RAID array by adding 1 drive of the same type is not supposed to be that complex.

I've never had this problem with 3ware LSI 9650-SE (used up to 3 of these at one time, each one connecting 8 1TB drives that weren't even NAS-enabled).

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: The read speed is high and the write speed is admirable. Card is very easy to use and set up. I have a 200mm fan on the side door of my case which keeps the card cool so you don't necessarily need to put a fan right on the heatsink like many say.

Cons: The time it takes for this card's bios to boot is probably 30+ seconds. I've used an Adaptec card in another computer and the boot was very fast, this doesn't bother me and might actually just mean I need to update the bios.

Other Thoughts: I have a 200mm fan on the side door of my case which keeps the card cool so you don't necessarily need to put a fan right on the heatsink like many say. If I take the door off and run the computer, the temperature alarm with sound. It's a good card, I recommend it!
