Pros: Fast enough to use an SSD with SF-1200 controllers. I have a few Mushkin enhanced SSDs with 275MB write and 285 Read. I have been searching for a hardware raid device that does not slow down the drives; this is that device! I did some benchmarks with Ubuntu, and the read/write/access speeds were the same when in Raid 1 ( mirrored ) as without.

Cons: Not really specific to this device, but any SSD in a raid environment will lose TRIM support. This device is no exception. I suppose software raid in Linux might support TRIM, eventually.

Overall Review: I highly recommend this for faster SSD use.
