5 out of 5 eggsDoes everything it claims flawlessly

Pros: I use this controller to drive my home media server and started out with four 4TB Seagate's in a RAID 5. As my purchased movie collection has continued to grow, I've added a hot spare, then a few more 4TB drives, then migrated to RAID 6 w/ hot spare up to the full 16 drives my server chassis will hold. There was zero down time on each expansion or migration and others in the house didn't even notice. Both the command line (CTRL + H during POST) and the GUI are relatively intuitive and easy to navigate.

Cons: I'm not sure if it's a reflection of the controller or more likely the Seagate ST4000DM000 4TB 5900 RPM 64MB drives, but adding two drives on the RAID 6 takes over a full week to complete - but as stated above, this was online and with no appreciable impact.

5 out of 5 eggsWorth the investment

Pros: Works. 6 Gb/s SATA. Good drive status info and good performance with low system overhead. Painless setup and config.

Cons: Haven't figured out how to run the server part of MegaRAID Storage Manager software on Hyper-V only O/S, so it requires a full server or client host O/S. Command-line interface works, though.

Cheapskate nickel-and-dime add-on licenses for SSD caching and other features.

Not compatible with my SSDs perhaps because I haven't purchased the add-on licenses.

Other Thoughts: Running on an old D955XBK / Pentium D940 as a WHS w/ 8 x WD2003FYYS and soon adding 4 x WD1500EARS. This replaced using 2x soft RAID 5 and I couldn't be happier. Instead of repeated BSODs and useless messages from Windows, I got "Drive X failed", and was able to replace, rebuild array, and carry on. Rebuilding a 4x 2TB RAID 5 array took 5-6 hours, vs. 30 with Windows. Cross-array file copies are > 180 MB/s in some cases, keeping in mind that the server platform is old PCIe 1.0/1.1 x4 = 1 GB/s max I think.
