5 out of 5 eggsLow ratings because of poor knowledge

Pros: These drives are fast and perform as advertised. I have them in two different mySQL servers and have not been dissappointed at all.

Cons: Fujitsu as a company may not have the greatest support. I have not had to test that theory yet.

Other Thoughts: There are some low ratings on this product because people don't understand what SAS is. SAS is SCSI a SCSI based drive. Don't confuse it with SATA. If you don't understand the difference and what controllers are compatible with which drives, don't rate the product low because of your lack of knowledge.

5 out of 5 eggsCorrection of misinformation

Pros: I have used SCSI drives in my own workstations since the dawn of the PC. The latest one I built has two RAID arrays. One uses three Seagate 37 GB 15k SAS drives in a RAID 5 array controlled by an Adaptec 6805 PCI Express controller. The other consists of 3 Seagate SATA 320 GB drives in a RAID 0 array controlled by the Intel chip on the motherboard. Every benchmark I have ever run shows the SAS array to be two to three times faster than the SATA.

Cons: 900 MB of usable SATA space cost me 20% the cost of three SAS drives and the controller. In the future I will be sure that the motherboard I purchase has the SAS controller built-in, which would have halved the cost of the SAS components.

Other Thoughts: I am in the process of putting together an order for a new workstation using twin quad Xeons in a Tyan motherboard. I will purchase the Fujitsu SAS drives, because they are a tremendous saving relative to other manufacturers. Incidentally, my cables for the SAS drives came from Adaptec. They are made for their controller, which has two connectors that can accept four cables each. I have verified that this controller will recognize SATA drives that connected with these cables. One of the primary virtues of SAS is that they can be chained in a virtually limitless collection that can span networks. For most home users the benefits of SAS probably do not balance the extra expense they entail.

3 out of 5 eggsJust to clarify the issue

Pros: I rated as average becaus I don't own these yet, but I needed to throw in my two cents worth. Just to clarify the issue, theory is that a a sata hard drive can be attached to a sas controller with positive results, but a sas hard drive cannot be atached to a sata controller with the same results. From what I understand, this is the beauty of sas, sata hard drives can be attached to an array alongside sas drives with no performance loss to either.

Cons: I don't own the hardware I need yet. You need a relatively expensive controller to research this theory. Theoretical benefits are increased increased read and write speeds, burst speeds, etc. (my nforce4 raid0 bottlenecks at about 110 mb/s with 2 raptors, they should be capable of quite a bit more than this, and a couple of 15ks should be a real eye opener.) I'll definitely let y'all know.

Other Thoughts: I'll let you know. Parts are on order. Should be a lot of fun finding out what these hummers will do with a good hardware raid controller.

5 out of 5 eggsNeeds an SAS adapter

Pros: 15k

Cons: low capacity

Other Thoughts: SAS cables can be plugged in to SATA drives. SATA cables CANNOT be plugged in to SAS drives. The SAS drives need an SAS controller, a SATA controller cannot operate an SAS drive. The reviewer that stated SAS drives can be plugged in to SATA ports has either misinterpreted or has not fully read the wikipedia article.

1 out of 5 eggsManufacture Warr Not supported

Pros: none

Cons: I bought 3 of these but never hooked them up since my HD controller did not come with SAS cables and now I am waiting for the boat from China to come in (3 weeks now). Meanwhile I called Fujitsu about warranty and RMA, I was given the run around and I could not get a straight answer. No Support = RMA. Not going to deal with shady companies.

Other Thoughts: Back they go.

5 out of 5 eggsYes, you can plug a SATA 1 or 2 into the SAS.


Cons: for much higher speed data transfers than previously available, >>>>>>>>and is backwards-compatible with SATA drives<<<<<<<<<<

Other Thoughts: Giving it 5 eggs even though I have not purchased becasue of the people who rated < eggs and just asked a question...

3 out of 5 eggsAnswer a question

Pros: N/A

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: In answer to a question posed by another "Reviewer" of this product:
11. Can I use Serial Attached SCSI hard drives in my Serial ATA workstation or desktop PC?

While not native, SAS hard drives can be used on SATA desktops and workstations by adding a host bus adapter.

4 out of 5 eggsNo Clue

Pros: n/a

Cons: n/a

Other Thoughts: Can anyone tell me if SAS needs an adapter card, or if it can just plug into a serial port on your mobo?

3 out of 5 eggsDon't buy

Pros: none at this point

Cons: The drive crashed in less than 6 month after installation. When I contacted Fujitsu I was told that I can't get an RMA for it. Fujitsu Taiwan Ltd. is a subsidiary (?) of Fujitsu and I would have to send the drive to Taiwan...

Other Thoughts: Fujitsu is out of my supplier list
