Pros:

Solid card, no hiccups during install.

Cons:

The prompt to press ALT-M to enter the RAID BIOS doesn't show on my system. You have to blindly press ALT-M repeatedly while the system boots to configure the card and drives attached to it. It's probably not the card's fault, more likely the Dell motherboard / BIOS it's forced to run on.

Other Thoughts:

Whoever said this doesn't work on Windows Server OS is full of it.

I stuck this in an old Dell Core2 Duo E4500 system for use as a Small Business Server. I used Win Home Server 2011 (which is based on and uses same drivers as Server 2008 R2), as we'll never have over 10 users, and didn't want to pony up the cash for the SB Essentials version.

That said, I put the two drives (2x Hitachi Travelstar 2.5" 1TB 7200rpm 32mb cache) on this card as a boot device. Windows booted off the CD and immediately recognized the RAID device and installed to it. Device manager showed it as a "standard AHCI device" but after installing drivers off the CD, it was properly installed and configured as the Marvel 92xx SATA3 RAID controller.

Since this will be a small server that hosts a Quickbooks database and a couple other essentials, I doubt I'll be really testing this card's speed in any way. Definitely performed the way I need it to, so it's money well spent and recommended by me!
