I personally wouldn't buy anything but a LSI 9211-8i, or Dell Perc H310 from ebay from $50-$100. Just flash it with IT mode firmware and you're good to go. I'd avoid the ones from china though... as they are probably cheap clones.

So, how do you set these up? Do you make a raid in lsi during boot up? If so, how do you monitor for failed drives? On my new box I have 6 sata ports available but I also have dell perc 700 that is not utilized now, but my case is able to support 8 drives. thanks

Don't use the card as RAID, just set it up as is and xpenology will sort the rest out :smile:

NO way!! So I just need to clear any configs form raid card, plug in all hardware and synology does the rest??? Does it get any info from the card? Can you post a screen shot of of the info when you go to disks?

 

THanks

After some research my card does not support IT mode so I can't use it. So if anyone is trying to use the perc h700, you have to create a raid on the card.
