5 out of 5 eggsAreca ARC-1224-8i

Pros: Good SAS 2.0 card for the price
Dizzying array of RAID levels supported
Ethernet port provides convenient http-based OOB management if you don't want to futz with the BIOS

Cons: Does NOT support SAS expanders
Shipped with back-rev BIOS / firmware

Other Thoughts: This is a very nice card overall, but I bought it specifically for the use-case of coupling it with an Intel SAS expander (RES2SV240). Areca's website implied that all their SAS 2.0 cards support expanders, but it turns out in reality only the 1882 and up versions to do so, which it a total deal-killer for me WRT this card. Not exactly NewEggs fault, and the card is otherwise a fine piece of hardware, hence the 5 eggs rating.

Flashing the firmware was a snap through the web-management thingy.
