Not long ago I got some nice second-hand SAS drives that I could use with my home server. I didn’t have a SAS controller that I could use with these drives at that time, so I started looking for one. I didn’t want to spend too much money and the specifications I wanted were not very advanced.
After some investigation I decided to purchase a Broadcom MegaRaid SAS 9341-8i controller. This controller is a bit old but it had the functionality I was looking for at an affordable price.
