Adaptec 1420SA is JUNK!

I wrote them to ask if there was any possibility of support for something else and they were less than helpful. You have to click on a secondary link to learn that, oops, sorry, only the enterprise SP1 version of SuSE is supported. Now, a word from Adaptec: Write cache not catch means that the memory on the card caches the writes so that the OS can go on, and then as the drives can handle the data it writes it out. Unfortunately, we do not support Fedora Core and currently there are no plans to do so.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux version 4. Adaptec used to mean that you were getting decent hardware. Justin, so did some aspect of their driver suddenly make the card a true hardware RAID card?


Light them up boys!!! May 31, at The good Adaptec cards as we know them from the SCSI-era were designed by a different type of engineers.

The list of non Windows operating systems that they do support is meager at best and only includes versions that are at least a year old. ClarkConnect Forums by ClearFoundation: Those cards were fast. After being happy with previous products from Adaptec I got sloppy and purchased a SA … just to end up here.

I did fill it out even though I am sure it will get sent to the scrap heap. April 24, at 5: There is no reason for adaptef in either Windows or Linux since both OSes already have that in them.

I will definitely not buy this card. I hate throwing money away!!

December 4, at 4: Adaptec makes crap hardware anymore. Then perhaps it could be put to some use…. 142sa the most expensive ones are slower than almost anything else. The support is also tied specifically to one version of the kernel, so if you want to update your kernel to fix security issues you are screwed as well.


That means that as soon as something attempts to write to the drive it gets written, but you are limited to the speed the drive can write information. But today there are enough other companies that do a better job in. I installed 2 set of server and using SA.

Adaptec cards of today are slow. I mean come on.
