5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works great with Gentoo Linux. Lets you add the drives in a SAS enclosure to your system each with a separate full-performance link. No RAID settings to mess with which is a bit more convenient if you were just going to use software RAID anyway.

Cons: Expensive. There seem to be cheaper controllers out there that actually provide RAID but I wasn't sure if I could find linux drivers for them so I got this one instead.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for ZFS

Pros: Works exactly as described in IT mode (Initiator-Target aka non-raid mode) for presenting disks directly to an operating system for use with OS-level raid (Linux md, etc). I've used with ZFS under various Solaris/Illumos operating systems (Solaris 10, OpenSolaris, Nexenta, Illumian, OpenIndiana, OmniOS, etc) including under VMWare ESXi with Intel VT-d VMDirectPath PCIe passthrough mode, all functioned properly without any issues.

Cons: Upgrade both the firmware and BIOS immediately upon receipt, sometimes the cards sit in a warehouse for quite a while and ship with very outdated firmware. SAS2Flash utility supports Windows, Linux, Solaris or vSphere rCLI and only takes a minute to run.

MiniSAS cables (SFF8088) can be pricey. Shop around.

Other Thoughts: I've had a 9200-16e since it came out in spring 2010 (same SAS 2116 chip as the 9201-16e, but a slightly different component layout) as well as multiple 9201-16e/16i cards and I've been very happy.

Mac OSX (10.6+) driver available from AstekCorp for $50. Tested briefly in a Mac Pro and it worked as described.

The DOS based SAS2FLASH doesn't work on newer Nehalem or Ivy/Sandy bridge systems with EFI. Use SAS2Flash under another OS instead.
