5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Used this to connect to two SAS expanders for a total of 36 drives. Installed in a PCI Express 3.0 x8 slot, so it's fast. Worked out of the box with Ubuntu Server 14.04.

Cons: None. Anyone complaining about RAID needs to read the description again.

Other Thoughts: This card helped form the storage of a backups server. With 36 drives in one large RAID10 array (mdadm), the system is very, very fast.

Works well in a Supermicro card. I originally had older HBA's from a different manufacturer installed, but the motherboard didn't agree with them. The LSI worked great.

5 out of 5 eggsFast, works with Linux

Pros: Bought this to interface to a 24-drive SAS backplane in a server enclosure. It works well with CentOS Linux (kernel 2.6.32), both for drive access and to do enclosure management (ie, make the backplane LEDs work). Drives are hot-swappable. Fast. PCI-express 3.0 means that it will never be the bottleneck, even when using all eight SAS links flat-out.

Cons: Boot times increase. Not sure why LSI's option ROMs take so long to start. Not a big deal for a server that stays on 24/7 though.

Other Thoughts: Note that this is an HBA, not a RAID controller. It does not do RAID5/6 on board, it's simply a way to talk to your SAS drives.

Bought this to build a storage server. Using a Supermicro 6047 24-disk chassis. The server runs CentOS 6.5 and uses ZFS. bonnie++ benchmarks on a raidz2 array with eight 3TB Seagate 7200 rpm SAS disks gave about 540 MB/s sequential write, about 600 MB/s on read. The 4-link interface to the backplane would likely be a bottleneck once all 24 slots on the backplane are populated, but that's still more speed than I'd need for now.

4 out of 5 eggsPurchased 3, RMA'd 1

Pros: 3Ware, now having been acquired by LSI, is the leader in hardware RAID. A company I trust and have had wonderful data saving experience with in the past. This device is natively supported by the linux kernel.

Cons: I had to RMA one of these because of a faulty solder on one of the SAS ports. But NewEGG, as always accepted it with out issue.

Other Thoughts: I have had to re-flash 2 of these devices to support with new firmware to enable support for larger drive capacities. Not my favorite thing to do, but each has been with out incident, and enabled all advertised features.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

Pros: SUPER fast. Maxxed out my PCIe x4 2.0 slot with just 2 SSDs. I'm in the process of getting a system with PCIe x8 3.0 slots to truly test this beast with 6 drives. Will update after. I'm getting amazing speed by just creating a software RAID 0 setup through windows 7.

Cons: Since power and SATA data are all 1 connector, I need new cables for my 4x1 5.25" drive bay. Oh well, I should have researched better. Very clear in the pictures.

Other Thoughts: This card is not advertised with integrated RAID but is instead an HBA (host bus adapter). This is well documented on LSI's website and very clear. If you want the IR firmware you can flash it or just buy an OEM variant from IBM/Dell/HP (if you can find it).

1 out of 5 eggsNo RAID support!

Pros: Other than that...None: Card did not function as a RAID controller...shipped with IT rather than IR firmware!
The box reads "Integrated RAID"...don't believe it!...though you could get lucky (-:

Cons: I purchased this Host Bus Adapter to configure a 4-SSD RAID-0 partition for Win7 Pro (64bit) on a new ASUS Sabertooth X79 motherboard system.
After several contacts with LSI support (I use that term "support" loosely), I was finally told that the card was shipped with non-RAID firmware (IT rather than IR). I was told that the firmware (BIOS) could only be changed by creating a DOS bootable flash drive, downloading specific files and typing in specific commands. You first have to delete the IT firmware and without rebooting, then flash the new IR firmware. If you do accidentally reboot, the card becomes useless.
I followed all the instructions found on LSI Knowledge Base documents, only to receive an error message that (after much research) tells me that the flashing can not be accomplished on my motherboard. I tried the same process on an ASUS P5Q (P45 chipset) motherboard with the same negative results.

LSI refused to RMA the card to change the improper firmware!

Other Thoughts: Thank you NewEgg for giving me a RMA with a full refund!
I have built several hardware RAID systems in the past without running into this kind of difficulty!
It's been two weeks of frustration and disappointment and a total waste of time and money.
By the way, the cables that come with this kit include power connections at the drive ends of the SATA cables, so they cannot be used with any hot-swap drive bays with their own built in connectors. I had to spend an additional $50.00 (incl. shipping, etc) for new cables.
I talked to and e-mailed several LSI support personnel and they are either unwilling or unable to provide any information that is not already in their publications. In fact, I could not get all the correct information without referring to many difficult to find LSI documents.
If you order this product you could get lucky and get the proper firmware and have no problem, but there is no way to know beforehand!
