This review is from: LSI MegaRAID SATA/SAS 8704EM2 3Gb/s PCI-Express w/ 128MB onboard memory RAID Controller Card, Kit
Pros: Latest firmware/management software has "power down idle disk" option! Will have to play with it and see if it actually works. Haven't tested it yet.
It does work with Seagate 1.5 TB ST31500341AS. I have 4 of them in a Raid5 config.
Cons: Could use more flexibility in scheduling Media Patrol Checks, LSI's software only lets you choose Continuous, or Every X Hours. It can not be set it up for a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly @ X time. This is important to know exactly when it starts so degradation in performance can be accounted for quickly and predictability. Every so many X hours setting allows for the repetition time to drift depending on completion duration.
Other Thoughts: Take the supplied CD and chuck it, as usual it is grossly out of date. Update to the latest firmware immediately from the LSI website and install the latest managing software.
Windows XP 32 bit does not see my LUN that is 4.5 TB. Vista 64 bit sees it.
