1 out of 5 eggsDon't bother

Pros: None

Cons: Performs poorly.

Other Thoughts: Bought this to run a storage system comprised of 2.5 inch Western Digital 750 GB hard drives. Running in RAID 6 mode, JBOD mode, on FreeBSD or Ubuntu Linux, the controller causes the system to lock up in the middle of a moderate storage load. When I perform the same rsync to my system SSD, it runs flawlessly.

Switching to an Adaptec controller with a Chenbro expander. Hopefully that will work as advertised.
