1 out of 5 eggs issues with stability under load on linux 06/16/2013

This review is from: SYBA SD-PEX40054 PCI-Express 2.0 x4 SATA III (6.0Gb/s) HyperDuo 4-port RAID Controller Card

Pros:

works fast except for some issues under linux.

Cons:

On linux under heavy load it can freak out (mdadm raid5/6 builds/checks)...usually if smart commands are being run that makes it rather unstable...to test suggest putting several disks under heavy load and running constant smartctl commands in linux will cause the controller to freak out and drop *ALL* disks connected to it, it will require a reboot to get things back...if it did not have this issue the controller would be great.

I have disabled smart and it mostly works...but still if the disk has any error the controller has a habit of freaking out and dropping all disks (even without smart commands running). The error that happens with smart appears to be the same error as this.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

Note that this product does not have specific drivers support for Linux since this product uses the AHCI drivers.

We are more than happy to provide all of our customers with a prompt exchange whenever a product becomes defective.

SYBA offers an online RMA form, the user can easily fill out the form and submit it for a quick RMA return and exchange. It is SYBA's policy to answer all customer inquiries within 24 hours (M-F)

Thank you for purchasing one of our products, and for leaving us your valuable feedback.

Regards, SYBA CST 06182013
