Good deal anything less than $40 or $5 per port hookup in my book. I have WAY too many of these HBA's, three 9211's, two H310's, two 9210's. Yeah I think I got all of that out of my system thank goodness.

Make sure you are using the older P7 version of sas2flash first. It took me a while to figure that. I was afraid that I might have bricked it.

@whitey has pictures of the steps in a recent post here with version hilighted.
Tru dat! :-D Learned that lesson LONG ago, I have the upgrade sequence engrained in my memory now for almost all 2008 card variants.

I got mine on Saturday.

Packaging was TERRIBLE.

They were packed 3 in a single Priority Envelope with 1 layer of bubble wrap around them!!!
1 8087 connection was bent, but I straightened it out.

going to be testing these ASAP

Mine were also packaged terribly (the same way). I had one bent 8087 connection as well, but I was able to straighten it out. I have tried to check on both of these cards with both megacli and sas2flash and neither one shows any adapters present. Also, I don't get the OptionROM loading screen either during bootup for either card. I'm not sure if these cards are duds or have been flashed incorrectly.

@rubylaser, are you trying to flash these on a motherboard you have used LSI cards on before? Just checking as I had forgotten about the PCIe problems these have on most Gigabyte and other non-server motherboards and not showing up in BIOS or utilities. Thought I had a couple of failed cards too, but in a SuperMicro board they flashed fine (mine were not from this deal, it was a couple of 9201-16e I think from a Compellant off of ebay.)
