5 out of 5 eggsBoris a moron

Pros: Areca cards are the best on the market, You must not mix different spindle speed hard drives in the same array. No wonder it crashes. and its not the cards fault.

Cons: absolutely none

Other Thoughts: Do some homework before you deal with Raid cards, SCSI or SAS

3 out of 5 eggsGood card, but ESX 5.1 sometimes crashes

Pros: Advanced configuration options. Configurable over network. Works great with enterprise 10K and 15K disks. Removed 2 eggs for support

Cons: If combined different speed disks (15K or 10K with 7.2K) the card will not handle it well causing ESX 5.0 and 5.1 server to crash.
Support is non-existent. US support is some guy in CA that might or might not answer your email and if he does it is usually "deal with it" type of answer. This card comes with low profile bracket and detachable network connector, BUT package does not contain separate bracket for network connector and cable that would connect connector and card. I sent an email to "US support" and i got an answer that areca does not manufacture cable and that i should create cable by myself. Several days later i got an email from some other company asking $40 for cable, but no network connector plate.

Other Thoughts: I have 5 Areca raid card and i'm thankful i do not need support yet since they they just work (except already mentioned issue with disk combination), otherwise i feel it would be nightmare dealing with support.

5 out of 5 eggsareca RAID controllers are awesome

Pros: I have two ARECA RAID cards in operation. An ARC-1880xi and this ARC-1882x. Both perform incredibly well. They have very advanced configuration options; but, are still relatively easy to use. A RAID controller with poor firmware or software can be an incredible headache. I'm not sure I'll every buy another controller that isn't an areca or Dell PERC.

Cons: It is very expensive, but the hardware, firmware, and performance is excellent.

Other Thoughts: I posted to the support forum once and got a timely and expert reply.
