Adaptec - Adaptec Serial ATA RAID SA Enclosure Kit

A noticeable share of Serial ATA devices is intended for professional use. It should even force Adaptec Serial ATA RAID 2410 some other more expensive interfaces from the market of entry-level professional storage devices. Among Adaptec Serial ATA RAID 2410 things, a very useful feature is the hot-swap function of storage drives, initially built into the SATA interface. In this article we are going to review its main features. The bundle is simple: The bundle also includes a special 4-wire cable to connect the enclosure to the controller running order indicators on the front panel of the enclosure: The enclosure comes in two colors — beige on the photo and black.


The manufacturer offers three-year warranty for this kit. It's a relatively old controller — it appeared together with the SATA interface.

Adaptec traditionally uses this processor in its products and has already fine-tuned universal Adaptec RAID code: Perhaps, the main difference of Adaptec Serial ATA RAID 2410 sole AARSA controller from the same controller in the SA Enclosure Kit is a special 4-pin connector in the latter on the photo on the rightintended for plugging a signal cable from the enclosure, which controls LEDs on its front panel.

Each individual bay is equipped with a flap handle for removal and a latch hard drives cannot be locked with a key. The sleds are numbered from Port 0 to Adaptec Serial ATA RAID 2410 3 that's why you should stick to this order, when you install hard disks into the enclosure.


The enclosure itself has two indicators at the side — fan mode and system overheating. Its rotational speed can be controlled automatically depending on the temperature inside the enclosure there are special jumpers on the board for this purpose.

Serial ATA ports channels are numbered on the board. There are four SATA connectors with filtered power supply at the back of the enclosure board, so that it's no problem to install and remove hard drives, even when the system is running. There are two unpackaged LEDs near Adaptec Serial ATA RAID 2410 of these connectors see the photo of a connector above. Their Adaptec Serial ATA RAID 2410 is "delivered" to the front panel of the enclosure through plastic light pipes they are laid on the sledge under a hard drive.

And finally, there is a special pin-connector at the back for a 4-wire cable to the AARSA controller.

The main control features like enclosure management, S. Controller's BIOS contains a proprietary utility to monitor and configure operating parameters of the controller and connected drives. The latest technology Adaptec R.

RAID-on-Chip is evidently not supported either. Especially as the SA Enclosure Kit is a completely tested product. Nevertheless, we still carried out some tests for the controller — four-drive RAID 10 versus a couple of controllers from other manufacturers: All the more interesting it will be to determine which model is the fastest in RAID 10 easy to calculate. BIOS and driver versions for the Adaptec controller — 7. We used the following testbed configuration to test storage drives: Intel Pentium 4 Adaptec Serial ATA RAID 2410.

Maxtor 6EL0 Power supply: Each NTFS partition occupied half of the entire disk capacity that is the second partition started exactly from the second half of the disk. FAT32 partitions were MB, the first one starting at Adaptec Serial ATA RAID 2410 outer edge of the media on the "fastest" tracksand the second — exactly from the middle of the media volume.

It should be mentioned that our attempts to test Adaptec and 3ware controllers connected to the PCI-X bus in this system failed — there were some glitches. As a result, we used the jumper to set the motherboard to PCI64 mode.

Results of the physical parameter Adaptec Serial ATA RAID 2410 Linear reading rate graphs for RAID 10 on various controllers are the first to go click icons to see full-sized graphs. Let's proceed to interface transfer rates. But there are surprises even here. Only Sandra managed to evaluate the interface transfer rates of all controllers more or less adequately.

The majority of other utilities for Adaptec and 3ware controllers acted strangely — the effect of cache in these controllers.

As the SiI has insufficient cache memory, we can only assume that this transfer rate is a total of reading rates from buffers of two "parallel" hard drives in the array. There are no surprises in the average access times.


But then, the Adaptec controller obviously demonstrates the best results compared to the other contenders.
