This review is from: LSI MegaRAID LSI00305 (9266-4i SGL) PCI-Express 2.0 x8 Low Profile SATA / SAS RAID Controller - Single
Pros: True Sata3 controller = super fast with sata3 SSDs. Get the battery backup for this so caching can be enabled. Without caching, expect speeds to match the Sata3 SSDs. Turn caching on and speeds will skyrocket way above the SSD capabilities. 4 corsair force gt 60 gigs with caching on in raid 0: reads: 2.6 GB/s, writes: 3.2 GB/s. Without caching in raid 0: reads: 1.9 GB/s, writes: 1.8 GB/s. Needless to say, get the battery backup so caching can be enabled.
Cons: Price, Heat, Battery & the WebBios Interface. This is an expensive card. It runs very hot so have a well vented case. The battery doesnt come with the card, that would have been very nice. The webbios is dated and it shows. It's easy to use once you become comfortable with it but its definitely outdated. The heat, battery and webbios shouldnt turn anyone away from purchasing the card though. These are minor annoyances really.
Other Thoughts: Caching can be turned on without the battery backup in a raid 0 but that is at your own risk. This is a very nice controller.
