Adaptec 2274900-R 72405Single PCI-Express 3.0 x8 SATA / SAS RAID Controller Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I installed this card in to my home Ubuntu file server to run its 22 hard drives. So far this card has worked like a champ. The install looks a lot cleaner going from 22 SATA cables to just six SAS cables.

It's probably overkill for a home server, but I got tired of dealing with drives falling out of arrays when under high IO load.

Cons: Monitoring software for Ubuntu seems to be lacking. I had to flash my motherboard's BIOS to get the system to POST after the card was installed. Afterwards I got a lot of kernel warnings until I also flashed the card's firmware. It's running solid now though. The card ran at 150F until I installed a fan next to it. Now it's down to 105.

Other Thoughts: Very pricey, but probably worth it. I debated dropping an egg due to the monitoring software for Ubuntu, but it's such a good card I hate to drop it to a four. It's probably a 4.5.

Rosewill RC-218 PCI Express SATA II Controller Card w/ 4 internal SATA with 2 external eSATA Design

  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I have three of these cards in my home server running Ubuntu 12.04, and they work great! I have several RAID-5 arrays used by these (an array using 2 TB drives, one with 3 TB drives, and one with 4 TB drives), and I have not had any issues at all

Cons: None really. I suppose I wish these were 6G.
