The new ARC-1880 Series runs eight product SKUs deep with each model differing by a small amount from the next. Today we are focusing on the ARC-1880ix-24, the flagship model of the group. The ARC-1880ix-24 has the ability to connect to twenty four internal drives and four external drives without using additional port multipliers and has a user upgradable (up to 4GB) 1GB DDR2-800MHz cache module. The core component on the ARC-1800 Series is the RAID-on-Chip 800MHz I/O processor that was designed to offer high speed redundant functionality without compromises.

 

The ARC-1880 connects to your PC through a high speed PCIe 2.0 x8 port. Users can also use a full size x16 port without issue, but the controller will only use 8 lanes.

When it comes to the Areca ARC-1800ix-24 features, nothing was left off the table as you can see from this exhaustive list above.

 

When it comes to pricing, the MSRP in the US for the Areca ARC-1880ix-24 is 1399.99 USD, but Newegg currently has stock available for 1349.99 USD. The Newegg price didn't offer much of a discount, so I did a little searching and managed to find the lowest price online at Cost Central. They list the Areca ARC-1880ix-24 for 1110.32 USD.
