Pros:

It's a simple HBA, no bells or whistles. The price point is fantastic! Performs great.

Cons:

None

Other Thoughts:

This is the HBA that I've been looking for for a long time. I use ZFS for file servers (generally on FreeBSD or with FreeNAS), and this HBA is perfect for that. It's a straight HBA; no RAID on the card. With some RAID controllers you have to make a RAID0 for each of your drives you want to pass through. With this controller, it's literally plug and play.

Performance is fantastic, as expected from LSI. If you need to build a file server with software RAID (ie, ZFS or Windows Storage Spaces), this is THE controller to get!
