Pros: See notes

Cons: See notes

Overall Review: Heres the bottom line and important points of this adapter.

First, it’s old at this point. As such you should NOT be building a prod business server with this in 2018. I mean, come on. Why? Cause its old tech so naturally it wont be fast.

In regards to performance, this card does well with spinning disks. Just as well as a 9271 in my experience. Rebuild times may be a bit slower but if you’re rebuilding a raid 6 with 6tb drives on ANY card its gonna take forever. That said, between LSI, adaptec, and areca cards I’ve used, LSI cards tend to have the best rebuild times.

Do NOT attempt to raid SSDs with this card. It will perform terribly. You want a 9266 or 9271 for that. Those will perform just as well as a 9361 for the most part. Their CPUs can handle it.

Management on windows using msm is great IMO. No experience with linux for me.

Yes, boot times will suffer when you install ANY raid card. To dock eggs for that proves you are a noob.

A minus is lack of jbod support. A bonus however is the ability to force write back without a bbu.

So far Not good

Pros: No pros yet, because I can not get it to work

Cons: There were no installation instructions and no CD's that came with the units; I ordered two of them. So far these cards are headed to be returned unless I can find some documentation to install them in an ASUS PRIME H270-PLUS/CSM LGA 1151 Intel H270 motherboard. I tried to contact the telephone number of the vendor, but there was no one to answer the phone. I left a message on their answering device.

Super Slow

Pros: If it did what it should it would be great.

Cons: Doesn't come with "premium addons" like LSI MegaRAID FastPath that are now free on other cards (9265 for example). Even with the premium addons I get abysmal performance. 8 x Crucial mx200 SSD's in raid 0 transfers from and to Ramdisk are SLLLLLLLLLLLOWWWWW.
Latest drivers, latest firmware, performance still terrible.

Good concept but poor execution

Pros: Not many RAID card offers RAID 60 configuration. This is one of the few that I researched.

Cons: It worked the first time. But after reboot, I can no longer enter into WebBIOS. Don't know if this is a problem with the new UEFI BIOS or not, since the card was with 2012 packaging.

Overall Review: There is no way to change the wait time during boot. It takes a looooooong time.

Also, poor documentation. The vendor expects users to go online and download manuals electronically. When it comes to time to troubleshoot, I don't really have the manual handy to enter into BIOS and run command lines.

It also ran hot, so I have to install a 120mm fan on the side panel to keep the case cool.

I returned it.

Excellent

Pros: Worked great out of the box. I installed this in a EVGA E762 classified and it worked no problem without updating the firmware. The setup gui was better than the others made it out to be, although my mouse didn't work (probably due to being run through a multi port usb hub). The card is very small in real life, it fit right between two GTX 480 hydro coppers with good air gaps. The card also works flawlessly with WD Sata III 3TB Reds. Incredible bandwidths on these cards!

Cons: The battery backup unit is ridiculously expensive, you guys have got to be kidding me! Drop the price on those, or at least make them last a very long time. This is the reason you guys get 4/5 eggs, the price on the BBU is a little too greedy methinks.

Amazing customer service

Pros: * Amazing customer service -- everyone had thought my RAID was dead forever, with terabytes of lost data, but LSI calmly walked me through diagnosis and got my RAID back to an online state, which let me recover all of my data!
* Great performance even with complex encoding like RAID6 over 8 drives (when battery backup is online -- slow writes otherwise).
* Worked reliably over 2 years.

Cons: * Battery backup didn't last very long (~2 years), so had to replace, which wasn't terribly cheap.

Speed Racer

Pros: Setup is simple. Support is ample. Tech support helped with all my questions before I received the card. Youtube videos cover basic setup too. Buy a battery back-up for the entire machine. It is cheaper than the add-on card.

Cons: Price, but you get what you pay for. Wish these had the new super capacitor backup the new intel cards have.
