5 out of 5 eggsGreat when paried with EJ240 expander

Pros: Very inexpensive 4 port controller. Can be easily paried with other Highpoint 27xx series controllers for a multi-controller solution. I am using this with an EJ240 SAS epxander and 16 - 3TB drives in an external chassis. Excellent performance and reliability.

Cons: The Highpoint documentation is a bit sparse but their technical support is pretty good (online only, vocie not available)

Other Thoughts: I've tested this with multiple 2720 controllers and with a Highpoinrt 2760A (24 x 3TB internal and 16 x 3 TB external drvies). All configurations have worked great and performance using the expander is still over 300MB/sec.

1 out of 5 eggsdoesn't work with SAS expander

Pros: not terribly expensive

Cons: useless in real server world - that is, more than 4 drives

Other Thoughts: I bought this to work with a Habey DS-1280 12 drive array. That unit has a built in SAS expander (the whole point of a chassis), connect to server with one mini SAS connector. This should not be a problem for a SAS controller card, it is a pretty standard config. After setting it all up, I could not see the disk drives. Researched on Highpoint site, and guess what, their well hidden support FAQ says it won't work with SAS expander. Nice. Have to return to NewEgg, figure out an alternative, and lose a lot of time. Thanks guys.
