4 out of 5 eggs Compatibility Info 01/15/2014

This review is from: areca ARC-6120-121 Battery Backup

Pros: Allows write cache to work!

Cons: Compatibility information needs to be updated. It is expensive.

Other Thoughts: This will work with the ARC-1214 as well as the ARC-1882. Areca really needs a compatibility matrix for their battery modules as the previous "works with ARC-12xx" for the ARC-6120-3 doesn't apply.

2 out of 5 eggs Compatibility Issues 01/15/2014

This review is from: areca ARC-6120-3 Controller Card Backup Battery

Pros: Works with ARC-1213

Cons: Does not work with ARC-1214-4i

Other Thoughts: Description says that it is compatible with all ARC-12XX. Unfortunately, this isn't the case. Contacted Ben @ areca and he immediately was able to verify the problem. Battery information is one area Areca could provide more transparency.

  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: XP 32-bit support is listed on their website here:

I haven't used this varient of Areca controller cards, but I have found they support (ARC-12xx) all every version of windows I have ever needed whether 32 or 64 bit.

Cons: I haven't actually used this controller card.
