I was initially worried that I would need to jump through some firmware upgrade hoops to avoid the on-board RAID functionality, but it worked fine out of the box - I installed the card, attached 8 SATA drives (mostly WD Red 4TBs) and they all showed to Debian as individual drives as I desired.
I've only been using this card a few hours, so can't report on long-term reliabilty, but initial impressions are good. A "zpool scrub" is reporting 1.4GB/s for my pool of 14 drives (7 mirrored pairs). 8 drives are on this card, 5 are on the motherboard's 6-port SATA controller and one (due to my case being full) is in an external USB-3/UASP enclosure.
Installing "sas2ircu", it's showing IR firmware v22.214.171.124.
The card is not the shortest card and with the connectors on the rear face you do have to make sure that you have enough unobstructed space behind the card. The heat sink on the card is not ridiculously large so it will all fit in the width of a single slot but I would advise good airflow to prevent overheating.
