LSI MegaRAID SATA/SAS 9260-8i 6Gb/s PCI-Express 2.0 w/ 512MB onboard memory RAID Controller Card, Kit
  • RAID 0/1/5/6/10/50/60

  • 512MB DDRII cache (800MHz)
  • $539.99
  • $529.99
  • Free Shipping (restrictions apply)

Pros:

This is a rock solid Raid card. I am currently using it for 2 raid 5 volumes, each has four 1.5 TB Seagate hard drives (consumer hard drives). Both read and write speeds are in excess of 280MB p/s. I am using 64K stripe on one and 128K on the other. I have thoroughly tested the card to see how it handles drive failures such as: removing drive improperly and then putting back in. You have the ability to set properties like rebuild priorities and so forth. The card can rebuild a 1.5TB hard drive from a raid 5 or 6 in under 5hrs.

Cons:

Less than admirable performance when striping across 8 drives (raid 0/00) I tested a few different stripe sizes. It is particularly slow when cache isn't enabled and your copying\reading smaller files.

Other Thoughts:

I would recommend this card to anyone who need solid performance and is willing to pay for it. I will also recommend buying the backup batter unit (BBU) if you want to enable cache and still have a higher level of security if your system losses power.
