Pros: Nice ATX-sized box. Sturdy construction and everything lines up like you would expect from a higher-end case.
Cons: I wish they made one like this in CEB/EEB. Had to pull out the HDD bay and remove the fan cover to access the power switches for each drive (only minor inconvenience). The removable bar that holds the 80mm fans can get in the way of dual processor setups.
Other Thoughts: A few quirks, but a very solid case nonetheless. If there was a CEB version available, I would have opted for it instead.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Respectable speed for a 7200rpm drive. I have bought 5 of them and have no failures of any kind so far.
Other Thoughts: I have 4 of these in a RAID 10 setup for my ESXi VMs. Additionally, I have another running an ubuntu box that has been running for 24/7 for ~8 months without issue.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Intel RAID Controller Card 6G SAS PCI-E x8 4 internal ports (RS2WC040)
Pros: Supported by ESXi 4.1u1 (and other versions). Easy to set up.
Cons: Pricey, but normal for this sort of thing...
Other Thoughts: Like the other reviewer, this was the cheapest hardware RAID solution I could find on newegg for my ESXi project. Working great so far! Using it with 4 1TB drives in RAID 10. Keeps my 3 (so far) VMs running smooth.READ FULL REVIEW
