Just wanted to post what I think is a firmware bug with the 1880 series RAID cards and SSD's. I have 3 x 50GB OWC Mercury Pro Extreme RE SSD's in an internal RAID0 array that I boot from using a 1880ix-16 card. I noticed in the storage manager that the SSD's randomly and intermittently will initialize at 1.5Gb/s instead of 3.0. If I cold boot it will change, and sometimes all 3 will initialize properly at 3.0. I have no media or SMART errors and the OS is running fine. Cabling looks OK as well. When all 3 are initialized at 3.0, I get sequential read/write of 887/580 MB/s using Aja (4.0gb, 1280x720x10bit). When one drive gets set at 1.5, the sequential throughput is decreased by about 40%. It is not noticeable with regular use of the computer. I sent a email to Areca support. Will post when I hear back. Anybody else using SSD's with these cards?
