1 out of 5 eggsHorrible write performance

This review is from: LSI Internal SATA/SAS 9211-8i 6Gb/s PCI-Express 2.0 RAID Controller Card, Single--Avago Technologies

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Failed backups, poor transfer speeds, I've tried updaing the driver and firmware, but WIndows Server 2012 R2 just has horrible write performance (1-2MBps), on multiple server motherboards, both SuperMicro Intel and Asus AMD.

Other Thoughts: Spend the extra $100 and get an Adaptec or Dell H710 (rebranded LSI).

5 out of 5 eggsWork great with Freenas right out of the box

This review is from: LSI Internal SATA/SAS 9211-8i 6Gb/s PCI-Express 2.0 RAID Controller Card, Single--Avago Technologies

Pros: It just works. Mine shipped with the latest firmware which is by coincidence the exact firmware required by Freenas

Cons: none come to mind

Other Thoughts: If you are buying for Freenas and do your research you may come away thinking that the ver 20 firmware is too new as I did. I went to great trouble to flash my cards back to vers 16 only to find that the new ver 20 firmware is no required, lol. I flashed them back to v20 and all is well. Love these cards.

2 out of 5 eggsno windows 10

This review is from: LSI Internal SATA/SAS 9211-8i 6Gb/s PCI-Express 2.0 RAID Controller Card, Single--Avago Technologies

Pros: none

Cons: What can I say.... L.S.I. wants you to down load the drivers off of their web site and the drivers don t work with windows 10.
So needless to say this card is going to be returned, just another waste of time.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent with BSD/Solaris

This review is from: LSI Internal SATA/SAS 9211-8i 6Gb/s PCI-Express 2.0 RAID Controller Card, Single--Avago Technologies

Pros: Works great with BSD & Solaris
Has IR & IT Firmware available for using as either a RAID card or HBA (Target)
Passes all SMART information to the OS
BSD 9.x (FreeNAS) / Solaris 11 & OI have native support.
UEFI Shell flash utility for changing firmware / bios
Quick controller init time

Cons: UEFI or DOS is required to flash the IT firmware.

Other Thoughts: Purchased this for use in a backup storage system with FreeNAS 9.1 with ZFS. Performed stellar. A second card was used in a Solaris 11 dev box. Again, stellar. Great product. If you dont need advanced card based raid functionality and are looking for a great card to use with ZFS, this and its brethren are your man!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great! Very fast!

This review is from: LSI Internal SATA/SAS 9211-8i 6Gb/s PCI-Express 2.0 RAID Controller Card, Single--Avago Technologies

Pros: I'm using this HBA card with 4 4tb western digital red drives in a software raid 6 with debian 7.

So far I haven't seen any issues and am seeing around 280 mB/s reads and around 240 mB/s writes.

Cons: A little expensive, but you get what you pay for!

1 out of 5 eggsFailed after 4 months

This review is from: LSI Internal SATA/SAS 9211-8i 6Gb/s PCI-Express 2.0 RAID Controller Card, Single--Avago Technologies

Pros: Plugs in and sata drives immediately recognized. No configuration required if all you need is sata drive expansion.

Cons: Just quit working after 4 months of use. My linux raid 6 suddenly failed on all 8 drives attached to this controller. I do not recommend this for file server reliability.

Other Thoughts: I used this in a linux raid 6 array with 9 drives 3Tb WD red drives, 8 of which were on this controller. Initially everything went smooth. The server ran flawlessly for 4 months, then suddenly the controller failed. I swapped pci ports with the video card and no change, so I doubt it was the MB, but plan to test with another linux box. Asus p8z77 MB, Xeon E3 processor, Seasonic ss-660xp power supply.

4 out of 5 eggsFast and Stable

This review is from: LSI Internal SATA/SAS 9211-8i 6Gb/s PCI-Express 2.0 RAID Controller Card, Single--Avago Technologies

Pros: There is really not a lot to say about this card, other than (1) it works, (2) it's stable and (3) it's fast. You're going to be limited by your OS and the drives themselves, and there's no fancy cache memory to cheat with, but if you're running ZFS or similar on a NAS box you don't want those things. It's also inexpensive, which is a big bonus.

Cons: It's NOT for those who want on-board RAID or battery-backed cache. If that's your thing then buy an ARECA card, stuff it full of memory and add the battery unit to it.

For host-software-based disk storage (e.g. ZFS file stores on a Unix box), however, this is the cat's meow.

5 out of 5 eggsQuality

This review is from: LSI Internal SATA/SAS 9211-8i 6Gb/s PCI-Express 2.0 RAID Controller Card, Single--Avago Technologies

Pros: - Easily flashes from IR (Integrated Raid) mode to IT (Initiator Target) mode.
- Excellent performance (for class of card).
- Well supported by FreeBSD (for ZFS).
- Handles 8 drives in IT mode with ease.

Cons: (none)

Other Thoughts: For the purpose of ZFS, this card is superb. Works well and works consistently. Would purchase this card again.

5 out of 5 eggsYes it's Bootable

This review is from: LSI Internal SATA/SAS 9211-8i 6Gb/s PCI-Express 2.0 RAID Controller Card, Single--Avago Technologies

Pros: Card boots just fine, I have two 15000 rpm 256 gig sas drives in a raid 0 striped array, wie 6.5.

Cons: For some reason I can't access my raid controller on my ASUS crosshair 4 formula with this installed, though not really a con. It is the motherboard, not the controller that has the issue.

Other Thoughts: Worth the cash. Works flawlessly.
