This review is from: SeaSonic SS-400L2U 400W Single 2U Server Power Supply - 80PLUS Gold
Pros: Fit the case as expected.
Cons: It should come with 3 cables to connect to the MB and peripherals. It had 3 cables but 2 of them were the same as each other. So I can't complete my build. Sent email to support 6 hours ago. No response.
Other Thoughts: I have used these before for other builds and had no issues. If support does not get back to me today, I will likely purchase another one from @mazon(easier to return) and keep the second as a spare. Cables should not be a big deal when swapping one out. Will think twice on future builds. iStarUsa seems to have the cables already attached so there is no risk of poor quality packaging.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast, does not take up a drive bay and has no moving parts. Plug it in, add the drive in the OS. May just show up depending on the OS. And you are done. All in all. It took me about 10 min to have this in the server and being used.
Other Thoughts: We use these for processes that must be done quickly and have a ton of Disk IO. You can spend 1000s of hours getting the code to run faster and or use more Ram or you can shave your IO times by magnitudes just buy using one of these. The cost becomes a no brain'r once you understand that.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Just works. Put it in anything and it will work perfect. I have used dozens of these and have never had one not work. Setup of the array is easy. Bootable, fast and reliable. I have never had an issue with any bios or other card causing issues with these. The i4 version is also solid and basically the same card.
Cons: The placement of the connections is a little off putting at first. But I have not had any issues bending the cables as needed. I regularly use U2 cases and this has never caused any issues. Does however make me choose the slot closest to the side of the case to make sure if I need to add another card, that the cables are not an issue.
Other Thoughts: If you have never used a raid card before and need one that will be reliable and easy to setup and use, this is the one.READ FULL REVIEW
