Pros: - Worked right out of the box - Port expander support - Rear mounted mini-SAS port - 4TB drive support
Cons: - Ships with old firmware
Overall Review: I bought this as a card for my lan FreeNAS box. I wasn't in need of a high end card, just one that would work with my backplane and FreeNAS. So far it's got five 4TB drives connected via the port expander and it's running beautifully. Because it worked right out of the box, I decided not to update the firmware. The only issue I've found is when I was creating my five disk raid0 array, it didn't show the entire capacity of the array in the setup menu, just the combined capacity of the first two drives. After creating the array however it does show the full capacity of the array. I'm not taking a egg for that.
