Decent attempt to bridge prosumer gap
Pros: - Holds a lot of drives
Cons: - too loud for a living or home entertainment environment
Other Thoughts: I can totally imagine that this device has a purpose. I'm just not sure what that purpose would be. 12 drives is getting high for "guess which serial number to pull" failures. It really needs enclosure support to identify failed drives.

Pros: Price, quality, ease of using hot swap bays, works great with my Mac Pro
Cons: No SAS Out SPF-8088 connector
Other Thoughts: This was the only SAS expander I could afford that met my requirements, and it met them with flying colors. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others.

Pros: Added 12 Samsung 2Tbs for 24Tb and hooked this into an Areca ARC-1680X and it worked great. Speed is great and have had zero problems.

Pros: Nicely made, Smooth edges. Drive trays slid into place with minimal effort. Pretty quite fully populated.
Cons: None as yet
Other Thoughts: I used an Areca ARC-1680x controller with a single SFF-8088 cable. All 12 drives showed up and intialized. Will test throughput once everything settles.
