5 out of 5 eggsImpressive performance so far

Pros: 1802 MB/s read 562.4 MB/s Write on 12 4TB 5400RPM Drives in RAID 6.

Cons: None to mention at this point. I am concerned with premature failure, as other review authors mentioned, but folks who experience premature failure are also the same people who feel motivated to write newegg reviews.

Other Thoughts: Working great thus far. Controlling my PLEX Libraries. Upgraded from an areca 1223-8i card. I will likely buy another as the last two generations of areca cards have been good to me.
Newegg needs to implement a review system similar to a m a z o n so we can know whose reviews are real and who is having a hard time and ranting. Newegg reviews are often misleading because the people who post them are not experienced and/or qualified to use the hardware they are reviewing.

5 out of 5 eggsRuns like a charm

Pros: Runs so smoothly don't even know its there. Setup was a fairly straight forward. Manual is invaluable. Been running a 6 disc RAID 10 + 1 spare for nearly a year. It is Hyper-V server running a Dev/Test network of 10 virtual Servers.

Cons: None really. Does take about 30 seconds for the raid to initalize during startup/reboot.

Other Thoughts: Will definitely buy again

1 out of 5 eggsHoping it was just bad luck...

Pros: Looks nice, big heat sink, 4gb of memory... abundant list of options to customize

Cons: Died in less than 24 hours - so now waiting for stock to show up again so I can get a replacement.

Not sure if it was sitting on the shelf for a while, but the box certainly had a decent layer of dust on it as if it was in the warehouse for a couple months on it's own.

Other Thoughts: Very excited to put together my 12 disk SSD Raid, had it going, initial boot I saw it asking about setting it up. First I needed to update firmware on the SSD's, and right when I was about to put them on the Raid Card, the raid card disappeared and no longer appeared on startup. It no longer is being seen by the bios. Tried in another machine in case it was a bad slot on the motherboard, same deal... I've owned 6 or so of the areca cards in the last 7-8 years, this is the first to die on me. Hopefully it was just a fluke.
