  4. i'd send them a email. i'v had firmware updates to fix compatibilty issues with raid controllers from seagate. i would imagine they probabley have them too. good luck.
  5. sry clicking wrong buttons sas is a beast in it's own and untill you use it , i don't think there is any convincing you. all i can say is drive benchmarks don't always mimick real word use. you just have to try it. there's a reason for them having a price premium. best regards

    Cheetah15k5 speed

    is this your boot drive or xtra storage drive. you'll get a little more with a newer card and if this is not your boot drive. but if this is your boot drive thats probabley causing you slower rate but not much more around, 90meg/s no caching, caching will give you higher burst rate i'm running u320 2230slp with 10 of them.

    XP Pro install (Doesnt see SCSI)

    i would work around the floppy issue if you have access to norton ghost and ide drive i would do a ide drive install, install scsi drivers within xp and then ghost xp onto scsi after you complete install only ads ten minutes to your hole process with out the frustration. good luck
