Pros: It works really well with ESXi 5.1
Fine performance with 3 arrays of different config
Runs stable so far
Cons: Awkward positioning of the miniSAS connectors on top of the card which makes it virtually impossible to get the cables installed in the server we put it in
Gets rather hot
Other Thoughts: We replaced an Adaptec card with this because it always dropped out of the system on ESXI 5.1 on high I/O load (every two days or so). Also, with the Adaptec card we had PSOD's on reboots until they provided us with a "fixed" aacraid driver for 5.1
Maybe my review is biased because we are uberhappy not to have this card cr*p out like the Adaptec :]
Pros: Good idea if it worked
Newegg refunded without restocking fee.
Cons: Unit kept crashing and support said it was "normal" and I should just do a reset every time.
Other Thoughts: Not ready to prime time (or broadway).READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: D-Link DGS-1210-48 Web Smart 10/100/1000Mbps Gigabit Switch With 4 Combo SFP Slots
Pros: This is a great switch at that price. We have 6 of them and use many advanced features.
At first, as with all DLink switches, I didn't like the explicit "Save Configuration" feature. But now I think this is a marvelous idea since it enables you to undo catastrophic config changes (like locking yourself out, etc) by powercycling the switch rather than resetting it to defaults.
Cons: The DLink product registration website is a catastrophy, although customer support was eager to help with the problems.READ FULL REVIEW
