Looking for a P222 Raid Controller

Anyone know of any deals on any p222 raid controllers?

 

I found a HP broker who has one @ £185+ vat.

I bought mine from Ballicom for £194.99 excluding VAT. There were a few other places selling it for slightly cheaper but I wasn't sure how trustworthy those companies were. I've dealt with Ballicom before and it was also covered by the Google Certified Shop protection scheme.

 

You need to make sure your P222 card comes the low profile bracket, the 512MB FBWC card and the supercap module. Some places sell the FBWC and supercap module separately if it was a pulled card.

 

The low profile bracket is necessary since the regular bracket that the P222 card comes with doesn't fit in the G8 Microserver. If the card was a pull from a working server then it probably won't have the low profile bracket.

You could search for 633540-001 654873-001 (512mb FWBC & BBU) for P222 or P420 on ebay,

I got myself a used zero memory P420 (~60€) and a 512FWBC & BBU Kit (~30€).

 

Sometimes you could get a lucky shot with   (633540-001 + 654873-001) for ~1€.
