Pros: Cheap as in cost, not as in quality, at 60 bones this SATA/SAS backplane is a deal. Has built in power/activity lights. It has 2 40mm fans which are quiet enough that it could be used in a Desktop or even a HTPC. I don't know the db rating, but it is about as loud as my PS3. Backplane and drive caddies are metal and seem to have good airflow. Mine came with enough screws for all 4 caddies and one extra set of screws. It also came with 4 SATA cables.
Cons: Drive caddies are metal, but the face plate and locking arms are plastic. It looks like they will probably hold up, but only time will tell.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Intel RMS25JB080 PCI-Express 2.0 x8 SATA / SAS Integrated RAID Module
Pros: Intel name, LSI SAS2308 controller, 2 x SFF-8087 ports, crazy cheap considering what it is/offers.
Cons: None, besides other thoughts.
Other Thoughts: This particular piece of kit uses a proprietary Intel connector and is only compatible with a select few motherboards. If you are looking for a SAS RAID/HBA card for use in a normal desktop/server you want the RMS25KB080 (2 x SFF-8087) or RMS25KB040 (1 x SFF-8087).READ FULL REVIEW
