great card, I've used 3ware a few times and their hardware seems to hold-up solidly. Customer support really is great too. However, this unit is EOL though the web-site does not indicate that. 64bit drivers for Server2008 are not available and will not be developed. Get the newer version of this card, 9650SE, instead. Otherwise, card works well and supports SATA drives at least 750G maybe larger.
