SAS 2.0 is designed for much higher speed data transfer than previous available and backward compatibility with SAS 1.0. The 6Gb/s SAS interface supports both 6Gb/s and 3Gb/s SAS/SATA disk drives for data-intensive applications and 6Gb/s or 3Gb/s SATA drives for low-cost bulk storage of reference data. The ARC-1882 family includes 8 ports low profile as well as full height 12/16/24 internal ports with additional 4 external ports models.
Beware Lengthy repair
This review is from: areca ARC-1882IX-16 PCI-Express 3.0 x8 SATA / SAS 20 Ports 6Gb/s SAS/SATA RAID Adapter
Pros: Amazing card, works extremely well. I have 4 servers i built all with the same card
Cons: The newest of the cards failed after 3 months, which is abnormal for this type of hardware and wouldn’t have been a big deal except. to get it taken care of under warranty. i had to fight with them to get them to fix it and i had to send the card out for repair essentially bringing down this server for the 6 weeks it took them to repair the card.
Other Thoughts: Buy two if you want to use this card. as for me i wont be buying them again
