              I use this in a mac pro for Codex download stations and also with a fanout cable to esata devices. Works great. Mounts RED media via red readers faster than any other host card I've used.

                I use this HBA to connect an LTO-5 tape drive and several eSata drives and RAID enclosures to my Mac Pro without a problem. Using this with an HP tape drive and Bru backup software (Bru Producers edition) is the way to go if you want both SAS/eSata connectivity and reliable backup solutions for your Mac Pro while sacrificing only 1 PCIe slot.

                Comments about ATTO Technology ExpressSAS 6 Gbps SAS/SATA PCIe 2.0 Host Bus Adapter (8 External Ports):

                I installed the Atto Controller as documented in our Mac PRO Server, theExpressSAS H680 driver, connect the Tandberg Data SAS LTO-4 tape drive, then reboot and start the backup software.

                No glitch. I just had to select the new drive and the LTO was ready to be used.

                Our version of Mac OS X Server was 10.6.7

                The performance are great...
