3 out of 5 eggs Good card, but ESX 5.1 sometimes crashes 06/21/2013

This review is from: areca ARC-1882X PCI-Express 2.0 x8 Low Profile SATA / SAS 8 Ports 6Gb/s SAS/SATA RAID Adapters

Pros: Advanced configuration options. Configurable over network. Works great with enterprise 10K and 15K disks. Removed 2 eggs for support

Cons: If combined different speed disks (15K or 10K with 7.2K) the card will not handle it well causing ESX 5.0 and 5.1 server to crash.
Support is non-existent. US support is some guy in CA that might or might not answer your email and if he does it is usually "deal with it" type of answer. This card comes with low profile bracket and detachable network connector, BUT package does not contain separate bracket for network connector and cable that would connect connector and card. I sent an email to "US support" and i got an answer that areca does not manufacture cable and that i should create cable by myself. Several days later i got an email from some other company asking $40 for cable, but no network connector plate.

Other Thoughts: I have 5 Areca raid card and i'm thankful i do not need support yet since they they just work (except already mentioned issue with disk combination), otherwise i feel it would be nightmare dealing with support.

OCZ Agility 4 AGT4-25SAT3-512G 2.5

1 out of 5 eggs FS corrupted after 1 day - very disappointed 09/21/2012

This review is from: OCZ Agility 4 AGT4-25SAT3-512G 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: large size?

Cons: it is actually slow drive...reading is really slow. The biggest problem is that my os got corrupted in 1 day of use. interestingly i got first blue screen of death with my laptop after i installed this drive. simply not worth $300.

Other Thoughts: I hope to get my money back so i can buy something that really works
