Product worked great but what is shown is not what is received. 9/22/2017 7:09:39 AM

Pros: LSI Quality
Worked great out of the box with FreeNAS 9.3 and FreeNAS 11.
Worked great out of the box with Proxmox VE 4.x and 5.0.

Cons: Did NOT come in the box shown, was just the plastic cover usually protecting the board.
Did NOT come with a manual, which was shown.
Did NOT come with a CD, which was shown.
And what I needed, did NOT come with the Low Profile bracket.

Overall Review: Product worked great and highly recommend them but I will only give it 4 eggs due to invalid marketing/advertising.
Make sure you purchase the cables to connect to your backplane or drives.

Ready for use right out of the box 6/25/2017 5:49:13 PM

Pros: Host Bus Adapter card shipped in IT mode with firmware 20.00.02.00
All I had to do was update the firmware to 20.00.07.00 to use with FreeNAS version 11
The newer chipset runs on PCIe 3.0 which is supported on my X11SSM-F motherboard.
Worth paying more for the genuine product, no chance of getting a knockoff card. ;-)

Cons: None

Good card with the proper firmware. Don't rely on their technical support 3/5/2016 12:15:37 PM

Pros: Fast, works with FreeBSD 10

Cons: Expensive. The Company's technical support is useless and they don't properly test their firmware updates. Details below

Overall Review: I've never written a review before, but I am compelled to do so after my many month's trek to get this card working in FreeBSD 10.2. I have 2 of these cards. 1 worked fine right out of the box, the 2nd one I bought a few months later and it gave me nothing but problems. The cards are in 2 separate systems controlling drives in ZFS pools.

The 2nd card would give me random read errors on every drive attached to it (so 8 of them) fairly regularly when transferring any sizable amount of data. I did some debugging and ruled out any of the hard drives, cables, etc. It was down to the card of the motherboard, so I tried replacing the motherboard thinking something might have gone bad. The new motherboard was even worse and resulted in read errors on boot.

This is where I contacted technical support and things went really down hill. They provided me 3 different tools to get information, none of which worked. 2 versions of tools to run on FreeBSD, which produced errors, and their LSI Preboot USB stick which wouldn't work. It's possible I choose the wrong option as there were many, but they never provided any instructions for getting the information they wanted despite me asking repeatedly. They also never tried to fix their BSD native tools. Oh, and they also threw out there that their LSI Preeboot USB stick, something they control the environment for 100%, doesn't work with all hardware.

They repeatedly harped on the fact that my hardware was not on their compatibility matrix, which was true. Their compatibility matrix lists cables, hard drives, and whole servers but not a single independent motherboard. They took the time to certify hard drives, a useless endeavor, but not a single motherboard. If you build your own system you can't ever meet their compatibility matrix.

My first 2 motherboards were by Gigabyte and LSI/Avago/Broadcom's tech support recommended getting a Supermicro board as they don't have issues with those, so I did. I ended up spending more money than the board was worth (a questionable path) on a new motherboard, CPU, and memory. I put it all together and still got read errors. I gave them the exact model of motherboard I had purchased, and after harping on it not being on their useless compatibility matrix they suggested trying to downgrade the firmware but otherwise had nothing to say. Despite my giving them the exact model of the motherboard, they couldn't be bothered to point me at the right tools up front. The BSD utility can't downgrade firmware, only upgrade. The LSI Preboot USB stick, which they recommended, has the tools to downgrade firmware but doesn't work with EFI. They didn't bother to mention that fact until I had already tried and failed of course.

I looked at my working board and found that it was running firmware version P17, so I used the EFI shell to downgrad the bios and firmware to P17 and all my problems went away. I noticed someone else running Ubuntu mentions they needed to upgrade to P20, but for me that version was full of failure. From what I saw it looked like a pretty severe contention issue in their firmware/bios.

If you buy this card beware that their tech support is useless and there is a probability you will have to play around with firmware/bios versions to get one that will work for your system. It is really inexcusable for a HBA vendor to be flaky regarding hardware. You can spend a lot less and have much better compatibility.

I have never had a tech support experience as bad as this. If there is any problem you can bet they will claim it's a compatibility issue and not really try to help.

Doesn't like to let my old AM3 motherboards POST with drives attached 1/14/2016 9:07:24 AM

Pros: Works well if I wait until after my machine POSTs to slide the drives into their bays. I was able to use it like this for a week and move all my data from the old arrays to the new one, but I could not leave it in the machine permanently.

Cons: Causes all kinds of weird boot-loops and CMOS/BIOS settings corruption - was never able to just "reboot" with this card in the machine and drives attached to it. These are old consumer grade Gigabyte socket AM3 motherboards.

Overall Review: Will probably work better for people with real server motherboard/BIOS

Update firmware before using 11/14/2015 9:54:19 AM

Pros: Fairly cheap, works out of the box on Ubuntu Server 14.04, works with consumer hardware. Performance is good once firmware has been brought up to date.

Cons: Like other people I got bit by the increasing UDMA_CRC_Error_Count on all 8 of my drives. As well as mpt2sas0: log_info(0x31080000) errors. This also caused my raid 10 to repeatedly degrade. Upgraded to firmware p20 and now it works like a dream.
