I had this in my Amazon.co.uk basket at around £120 and was considering purchase when I received notification that it had dropped to £86.  Snapped one up;

How does that compare to a Dell H310 sas that you can pick up from ebay for about £25?

It is, basically, the same card (of course, the OP purchased a new LSI card).  The Dell H310 uses the same SAS2008 chip from LSI Logic.  However, the Dell cards need to be cross flashed with 9211-8i IT firmware as they come with Dell proprietary RAID firmware (there are pre-flashed H310s available on eBay for around $55)

 

I just purchased an H310 for $30 on eBay (beware of Chinese LSI/Dell fakes) and flashed it to 9211-8i 20.00.07.00 firmware yesterday.  Works great.

Look for server pulls or something similar in the EU.

Likewise, I got one the other week and flashed it to IT mode. Cost me about £30 total and works great
