4Kn LSI Compatibility List

We’ve seen a high amount of users wary of purchasing 4Kn drives due to fears of compatibility woes so we put together a list of SAS Controllers with 4Kn support to help aid with choosing drives. Please note this does not cover OS Compatibility, and while most Linux Distributions as well as Windows 10/Server 2016+ support these drives, those locked into older distro versions might still have trouble. Keep your OS Updated!
