3 out of 5 eggs Good product, just not as advertised 08/26/2009

This review is from: Adaptec RAID 1430SA 2241000-R SATAII PCI Express x4, 4 ports Controller Card, Single

Pros:

We have a few of these cards. I give the card 5 itself 5 stars but the Newegg marketing no stars at all. See the Other Thoughts section for more.

The Adaptec cards work well and reliably. The setup is simple, with few demands on system resources. If you want a bulletproof RAID 1, 0, or 10 setup, these cards are worth the price. The BIOS and drivers are the same as those used in Dell servers for the CERC RAID.

Cons:

Slows system boot somewhat. For a server, this is a non-issue. As other reviewers note, the initial array build time is not the fastest. Again, this is not a big deal in actual use.

Other Thoughts:

Newegg markets these cards as being the retail version. We purchased two retail cards from another vendor and the contents were as advertised on the Adaptec site and as pictured here on Newegg. What Newegg actually sells as of August 2009 is the OEM version. This version does not include cables, etc. Newegg is charging retail price for the OEM product. If you want OEM, you can find it cheaper than this.
