This review is from: Intel RAID Twenty-four port Expander Card RES2SV240
Awesome performance and ability to mount nearly anywhere. The power connector on the top can be used instead of plugging the card into a slot, but using a slot is generally easier if one is available.
None thus far.
I would like to add that despite the newegg image showing only the card, the box it arrives in contains both a low profile and full height bracket (full height installed by default) and also comes with 6 SFF-8087 to SFF-8087 cables (2 short, 4 long) just as the Intel documentation says it should.
Additionally, there are only 6 connectors on the card, there is nothing additional on the back. One or two connectors can be used to connect to your SAS card, which leaves either 4 or 5 connectors open for use. Using two of the connectors would only really be necessary if you're pushing the interface to its bandwidth limits/chaining cards together for ridiculous numbers of ports.
