LSI SAS8081E any good?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm thinking of getting this specific card for my NAS box. 8 ports, can be flashed to non RAID with IT, and there's many on eBay for under $50. I've checked for other decent recent cards and keep coming across IBM M1015 but they usually go around $100 a pop and majority of mechanical hard drives (7200 and slower) aren't fast enough to saturate SATA 3G, so 6G would be overkill unless 2TB SSD comes in for less than $100 a pop in the next 3 years.

LSi SAS8081E OK card? Or something for under $50 that is safe to use and is capable of non-RAID mode?

LSi is good brand, but you need to make sure you have cache writeback protect to prevent sata loss on power loss.

If doing transfer, power loss no battery means data in transfer is lost or damage.

Error correction is big importance, moving terabytes of files if bad error crc, files are ruin.

Lsi is nice, good utilities.
