Pros: Card is one of the best!
Largely due to the inclusion of Raid 1E and 5EE, these will give you 500MB/sec write and reads on nearly any 4 sata disks.
Cons: Runs very hot, but does not affect its performance or reliability.
It may cause other cards next to it in a tower case to heat up a lot.
I added a small fan on the heatsink and it took care of that problem.
Other Thoughts: Some say the cables are not included with this as a con, but there is a separate version of this card sold on Newegg from Adaptec - KIT , that includes cables etc.
Add on the BATTERY unit for the card, it runs faster - like adding a turbo, and increases reliability if a power failure happens.

Other Thoughts: Had to special order cable for my specific backplane Supermicro M28E2.
You should check which cable you need before you plan to use it. They have many different cables for different applications i found out.
Pros: all in one that almost delivers what we all want
Cons: Before you buy any color Laser:
Add the price of all the toner cartridges for 1000 & 5000 sheets.
Often it's over $300 for the set of 3 colors and 1 black.
1 Ream of paper is 5000 sheets. How often do you go through one?
Other Thoughts: NOTE: Fax is standard on Phaser 6110MFP/X model versus optional on this 6110MFP/S model
