Pros: Excellent performance, even in a PCIe 2 8x slot. With 6 SATA3 drives (WD Red) connected, I can read at 900MB/s over 6 channels. Very stable under Linux 3.4 kernel. From what I've read, this HBA can only be saturated using SSD drives. Hook this to a SAS Expander and you've got a very high throughput solution with 8 channels of 600MB/s.
Cons: Only has a small passive heatsink that runs very hot. I added a spot cooler to it, to extend it's lifespan. It's probably designed to be run in a high airflow environment, like a 1U server with blowers.
Other Thoughts: Uses the mpt2sas driver under Linux.
