5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Raid Six Card

Pros: I purchased this card to go into my 24 TB Home Movie Server, The setup was a breeze, Set up the OS (Windows Server 2008 Enterprise) on a on two mirrored drives and set up a hot spare. And I currently have nine 1 TB set up in a raid 6 with a 10th 1 TB Drive set up as a hot spare. Set went quick as well as drive expansion less than 24 hours with no interruption in drive access or performance that I have seen. I would definitely recommend this card if you don't want to loose you Data/ Movies/ etc.

Cons: NONE!! But if I need to put something down It's a large card, and defenatly needs to be in a server case.
