This card has been done with minimal PM/field input!!! Somebody did it in his cubicle and threw it over the fence to users to test and QA it.
Based on the reviews that I saw on internet I got one of these for my server at home. what a mistake :( It has been nothing but problem after problem.

I have finally got it to work, but what a mess!!!
I started with two 4T HDDs and two 60GB SSDs. Don't do that! either pick one SSD @ 60GB or two SSDs @30GB each. the software that was written for this board, most likely does not have a large enough hash table to allocate larger SSD space than 60GB for caching. And of course not a word about this in the user guide! I had to find it the hard way.
If you use a larger SSD, DON'T be tempted to create a drive of the remaining space. it may work in the beginning, but after a reboot or two, it messes up everything and it is down hill from there listening to that annoying beep that is not even mentioned in the user guide and how to acknowledge it to shut it up! Not to mention the performance hit when accessing that drive while it is being used for caching.
You basically have a very narrow path to success and if you deviate a little, it is a crap shoot.

It is day 2 that I have it running here, but no confidence that the array will be maintained. I will update the thread after a week or two. the price of this card may be reasonable, but then again, "you get what you pay for".

UPDATE:: I have had the card for almost a month now and tried setting it up with several different SSDs and crashed and burned many times. The winning SSDs were Kingston 30GB SSDNow 200V. other models just gave me nothing but grief. The HDDs seem to have been OK. I used WD 1Ts and Seagate 2Ts and Hitachi 4T disks and they all worked fine.

Brought this product and ran it at Maximum Performance mode only.

My setup is 3x Crucial v4 32GB SSD + SSHD Seagate 2TB.

While it runs decent with the 3 SSD and Harddisk, with a Simple GUI setup.

The SSD Cache is limited to 68GB which is a limiting factor when considering for this product. Sure you can partition the extra ssd space for other uses but that also affects the transfer speed of the card. Unless of course you are fine with it, or if do not mind using 256GB SSD as cache and whats left of it as partition.

The Product works fine but its not great or anything...just meh/okay, I was reluctant to spend any more that a 32 GB SSD due to the 68GB Cache Size limitation and its a PCI-E transfer speed limit, so I went with the 3 32 SSD(Wanted to make use of the 4 GB Cache). And you cant boot with this card.

While the Setup is definitely faster HDD. Unless it gets an update that allows more than 68GB SSD Caching, you might find other hybrid duo pci cards more practical choice than this which can make use of full SSD space and is actually bootable .
This is and aging card and needs a update, unless u have special Raiding needs this card can pass.

The first time this thing lost power all the data was corrupt. I was running 2 HD in raid 1 with ssd as cache. Any raid card should handle a power outage and not lose file tables... I understand some file corruption but not complete file table lose.

Intriguing product - the performance is impressive, and it is well worth the money if you opt for smaller SSD's (which makes sense based on the capacity requirements anyhow).

It was nice to see if actually make it to the market, and not end up vaporware (saw a prototype at CES this year). An interesting write up is available at Storage Review (positive, citing this thing could challenge enterprise solutions in some situations, let alone a desktop/workstation).

I am currently using it with a 2TB Seagate + a pair of 64GB Crucial C300's, and am still experimenting with different modes.

The test numbers are great (even for the security modes), but more importantly, the difference is really noticeable if you use the cache-RAID as an install disk for applications (especially image editors, in my experience). I could also see gamers going for this (Skyrim+mods).

It would have been nice to see a bootable option, but it would probably be wasted on something like this, anyhow.
