Performance has been very good and I've been very satisfied.
Stephanie Sullivan
The hardware is very nice and driver support for the LSI controller chip is built right into the Linux Kernel.
J. Alvarez
Modern drives have so much cache that you don't really need a caching RAID controller anymore.

I can't really rate this one highly enough. While playing with ZFS on Linux, all the flaws in my storage subsystem (8x2TB Seagate LP drives in a port multiplier chassis, all going back to an i7-920 fileserver) really were shown up. Read speeds barely cracking 50MB/sec were the norm. Tests with md didn't show much better, so it was obviously time for an improved storage adapter setup.

Migrating from the port multipliers to this card got double the speed, even with relatively slow drives. Going for more, moving from a x4 slot to using half an x16 slot (both PCIe 2.0) got me a huge boost. ZFS scrubs (showing off mostly read performance) now top 450MB/sec, even with the relatively slow, low power drives. Couldn't be happier with the performance, really. Install was a plug and play affair on Fedora 14, no fuss at all. It's also worth noting that my (accidental) downmoding of the card to x4 had no other ill effects, and it worked fine, as it should.

Blazing, compatible with Linux >= ~2.6.30. With 8 Vertex 2's in a Linux software raid10, I'm getting sequential read speeds _averaging_ 1.5 GIGABYTES a second, write speeds around 600MB/s. A test raid0 made me double take with read speeds > 2GB/s and writes about 1.3GB/s. I have used these as storage swiss army knives. Wherever I have controller issues, drop one in. I have also used a number of the 16 port controllers of the same model with similar results. As a bonus, optical drives work too. Highly recommended.

Using this in my FreeNAS system with WD Caviar Red SATA drives and CIFS transfers are averaging around 100-110MB/s (large file) on 3-year old i7 hardware. This is up from 70 MB/s while using the onboard Intel Q57 controller so I definitely recommend it if you're looking to increase throughput. I researched SAS controllers a bit obsessively and found that this line of cards fares well amongst the FreeBSD community. The on-card connectors are mini-SAS (does not come with any data cables) so I had to buy a mini-SAS to 4SATA cable for this to work with the SATA drives.

Bought 3 for a norco esxi/oi/napp-it home setup. mobo is a p8b ws. passthrough worked with no issues on all 3. oi sees all drives on all cards

Only minor annoyance I had was updating the firmware. oi/napp-it work best with IT firmware (because IT firmware disables raid mode on the card). These come with IR firmware. You cant simply overwrite IR firmware with IT firmware. You have to erase the IR firmware first, then install the IT firmware. This process can only be done using the DOS method. I went through 3 mobo's my house before I finally found one that would let me use the sas2flsh.exe in dos boot environment. The newer mobos are not compatible with this tool for whatever reason.

Bought this to replace the built-in SAS adapter in my aging (but still fast) workstation so I could boot up from SSD at SATA3 speed into 64-bit Win7. I am not particularly skilled at PC hardware but have no fear of trying things myself. This adapter requires a special driver for Win7 to boot and I was nervous about how to handle that. Instructions were clear enough that I was able to bumble through with little drama. I now have two SATA3 SSDs and two 2TB SATA2 drives attached with room for four more. It is now three months and I have experienced no issues. Good investment.

Works great with FreeBSD 8.3. I can run 8 more hard disks at high speed.

I wish the power consumption was a little lower. I think it added about 10 watts at idle.

We purchased this as a replacement part for an older LSI 8-port SAS 3GB HBA. The previous card has worked flawlessly in FreeBSD in an enterprise ZFS server application, and the hope was that this would as well (there were mixed reviews previously related to driver incorporation in the default FreeBSD). I was pleased to find that it was fully detected and supported at every level so far: everything is fine in BIOS (despite having multiple other HBA cards present), it worked immediately in FreeBSD, and it properly handles hard drive installation and removal for an actively-running system.

We haven't finished stress-testing it yet, but using the older LSI card (and a large bank of drives) we were able to hit 2-8 GB/s with the caches disabled, so I am very optimistic about the potential performance we will get by adding this (and faster, larger drives) to the server.

I got this card to get more SATA III ports than my MOBO (ASUS P9X79 WS) provided and it does an excellent job of that.

When I received the card, the directions were vague about how to install the driver. Adding to the confusion were directions for installing the driver during the installation of Win 7. I sent an e-mail to the manufacturer asking for clarification and, although they never did tell me how to install the driver, they did say that the driver needed to be installed during the installation of the OS only if I wanted to boot from the card. Since I didn't and I saw one review that said it worked right out of the box, I installed it and fired up the computer to see what would happen. Win 7 found the necessary driver for it and I didn't have to do anything else.

The heat sink on the card runs pretty hot and I was concerned if it was too close to another card, the other card could be damaged and the heatsink might not get enough air flowing over it. I relocated the card from where I originally wanted it to the bottom PCIe socket (fortunately, it has eight lanes) so air would flow over it unimpeded from the front case fans and be exhausted by the PSU fan. Don't install this card where airflow is restricted, such as between two other cards, even though the cover is perforated.

One thing I was concerned about was if the card was hot swap capable since nothing in the specs was said about it. I needed two of the SATA ports for two hot swap bays on my computer. I suspected the card was hot swap capable since one use is for servers in which it would be highly desireable to be able to swap out a dead HDD without having to shut down the server. I'm happy to report that it is hot swappable.
