Rating: 5/5Easy to use, robust firmware, SSD aware.
This review is from: areca ARC-1882ix-16-4G PCI-Express 3.0 x8 SATA / SAS 20-Port 6Gb/s RAID Adapter
Pros: Windows Server 2012 R2 Installation was a snap. Driver installed from CD during setup, no problems whatsoever. Firmware interface is easy to use and has all the options and tools in the boot ROM interface as well as in the HTTP interface. Fast. SSD aware. Detects SSD vs HDD. Global spares can be assigned based on type of drive. Works with Supermicro back-plane with dual color LEDS.
Cons: Initializing an array locks up the interface during the initialization. This is the case for the ROM utility and the HTTP utility.
Other Thoughts: Using with Supermicro SYS-2027R-WRF with 2 Xeon 2630's. SSDs are Intel S3510 series. Can't complain at all, would buy again. The price is 'high' but the performance and features are up to par and that's what matters in the end.
