Working Well4/5/2012 8:39:29 AM

Pros: - Works with VMware ESXi 4 and 5 (used with both) - Will hardware RAID up to 4 SATA drives (3gb/s) - Setup/configuration tool is easy to use

Cons: - Pricey - No 6gb/s for SATA drives

Overall Review: - Comes with a mini-SAS to 4xSATA cable - This card is true hardware RAID, not software RAID like many MOBOs (makes a difference for something like ESXi) - We are running an Intel server MOBO, which is why we decided to go with Intel RAID controller - Haven't had to rebuild an array yet, will update if we do

Pros: Hardware RAID that works with VMware ESXi, RAIDs 0/1/5/6/10/50/60

Cons: A little pricey

Overall Review: I went with this card because I had an Intel motherboard and figured that everything would play nice that way (and it does). The card comes with a Mini-SAS to 4xSATA cable, so don't buy your own.
