Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Nicely looking unit.

Performs very well for what it is.

Overall I am pleased with my purchase.
Bad points:
Fan is noisy with on board b120i disabled. Since there is no driver for my Linux distro, I have to disable this. This is a known firmware bug, which makes the unit much louder than it should be!

p212 is not supported by iLO - I think it should be, and p222 is overpriced considering the other cards on the market.

Please add better Debian support, including native .deb ports of HP's array management tools.

HP's documentation is sprawling and disjointed. It is hard to decipher their marketing terms from actual meaningful information about the product. If you're familiar with the HP way then I'm sure this isn't a problem, for everybody else it takes a bit of getting used to.
