    We definitely need multi device nvme adapters/controllers. Pcie slots are far too limited.

    I got a counter-offer for 10 units for $160 each. I declined it though. I can't spend money like a crazy clown even if its a good deal. Now they are all gone! I may go a few of the 400GB version though.

    Seems like he sold out before my $170 offer was accepted. Some people are willing to spend more...

    I had same problem with he sold out before accepting my $170. ...I think there are going to be a lot more of thee F80 SSD showing up, so sellers will be releasing in small amounts to keep prices up. Could be different seller on F40 vs F80, so the F40 sellers will have to wait for the $140-$180 F80s to sell out, before folks fall back to the $80-$100 F40s.

    Do these appear as 4 - 200GB ssds to the operating system or as 1-800GB ssd?
    If you can boot from pci (I assume this varies by motherboard) could/can you make 1-200GB the boot drive and raid the other 3?

    600GB is still too small for all my VM's but until I can get one of those nice little pci cards that allows 4 U.2 drives to be mounted for a couple of hundred dollars this seems like an awfully nice speed up.... and/or I should shrink my VMS. Desktop vms are fat.

    Sorry guys, I ended up picking up 9 of these at $180 in desperate bid to improve read performance in my environment. Does anyone have experience with using these as vSphere Flash Read Cache (vFRC)?

    I'm using a unique setup with VMware ESXi servers, a multi-head Ceph gateway solution, and a big Ceph pool. I'm hoping these buy me time until I build an all flash Ceph pool by putting them in the ESXi hosts as read cache or in the Ceph gateways...

    Still vacillating on these - someone who has them, is the onboard LSI chip capable of any form of RAID, even 10? I need more than 200GB for the boot drive for my workstation, and it's something like this or a new SSD for 3x the price...

    From what I've read, these appear as 4 separate drives since the firmware is running in IT mode. You'd have to software raid.

    I'm debating one of these to use as a write-through enhanceio drive cache for two different mergerfs drive pools in Debian. Looks like it could saturate 10gbit. Gah this forum is going to make me go broke
