  • adaptec 2410sa raid card is bad


    after reading that with the iomega storage... very bad...
    i have to share what a fun i have with this raid card...

    hardware adaptec 2410sa raid card.
    connected to a supermicro storage server
    2 sata 80GB mirror for OS
    and 4 sata 500GB WD raid edition24/7 HDD's for raid 5 (only this drives are on the adapted card)

    ok and here is the story.

    after copying hours data to the new storage server... i monitored the write speed.. the raid 5 writes at 50MB's + - per second... every thing seems normal.. for a week on morning the storage performance is going down so i check it and i found out that the adaptec card is writing at 1MB's per second... checking and testing nothing helps...
    i take the disk out from the raid and test every disk... write speed is ok 50 MB;s per second... so card is crap... i call the vendor and he replaces the card... again same story copying hours data... and i am back online 50 MB's per second write speed... 1 and a half week later the new the card shows the same symptoms... performance drops down to 1 mb's per second...

    my conclusion is that THIS ADAPTEC CARD 2410sa is CRAP

    and next week i will test a promise card... i think thats the name...

    Question to Admins and moderators....

    maybe we can open a list or some sticky post with crap and good hardware ?
