  1. Has anyone seen the reviews of the new Silicon Motion SM2262EN controller? The early benchmarks are very promising. http://www.thessdreview.com/featured/silicon-motion-sm2262en-controller-preview-2tb/ https://www.anandtech.com/show/13131/the-silicon-motion-sm2262en-ssd-controller-preview The random performance looks promising. Nothing short of Optane and maybe Samsung Z-NAND is a competitor. It does have its weak points, but shows some promise. At least we have a marketplace that is not totally dominated right now by 1 company.
  2. Hi forum. I'm looking to buy the mentioned controller. One online shop (I'd rather not tell ) offers the non-Dell version of the controller for 700 USD and the Dell version for 480 USD. The specifications look similar. Both are based on the LSISAS2208 chip and both have two SFF-8087 ports. The Dell version specifies model: 403-BBEL. The non-dell is the standard LSI model: LSI00331. Apart from the model and the price, I see no difference. I suspect that the Dell version may have some limitations because of the reduced price, but it is difficult for me to guess what those might be since my experience with cards of this type is limited. I plan on purchasing the cachecade module (ssd cache) along side the controller. Thus, if the Dell controller does not support cachecade, ill go with the more expensive one. Have you encountered a similar "deal" in the past? What do they usually entail? How can I figure out what the differences are short of emailing the shop and asking them (I have already done that). If the answer can be found on the manufacturers site (LSI and Dell), then any points on what to look for are welcome. If the difference lies in the return policy and warranty, I'm willing to take the chance. I can guess that "KIT" vs "non-KIT" pertains to included cables in the raid-controller market.
