    Bought one of these units, had it come with the 602a Firmware and had issues detecting different SATA drives in all of the ports, flashed it and now i have no issues it detects all drives. I am even using one of the top ports for two Intel SSDs

    Setup is 9207-4e4i connect internally to the top first port of the sas expander
    Drives connected to all other ports, using a Norco 4220

    I wouldn’t say that in all in fact I plan on buying another one, with a relatively easy firmware upgrade this performs excellent and can support twenty drives. Price vs performance is awesome with this it cost me like 21 bucks
