Will the hardware controller work with Hitachi 1TB 7200rpm SATA drives? (The description seems to say that it will only work with SAS...)

    Yes. I have three standard SATA 1TB 7200 Hitachi drives in my Mac Pro that are in RAID5 via this card.

  • These cards work with either all SAS or all SATA drives. I believe I read that one may not mix SAS and SATA on the same RAID card.
