It features a long list of technologies designed to protect the information on the arrayed hard drives.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks Fairly Well

Pros: Very easy to get up and running. I had this installed, attached to the enclosure, and configured in under an hour.

Cons: The web based configuration application crashes constantly, and the service needed to be restarted often while I was configuring the RAID. The drive identifying LED flash mechanism doesn't work with the enclosure I'm using. No LEDs on the enclosure flash when the flash command was given. I'm using a Sans Digital TR8M TowerRAID enclosure, and used this RocketRAID device to replace the original eSATA RAID device that came with this.

Other Thoughts: Great value for the money. I just wish the LED flash capability worked with my enclosure so I wouldn't have to guess later on when replacing drives.

1 out of 5 eggsexpecting a Raid card, not clearly described

Pros: Small form factor
PCI-e card sata 6Gbs

Cons: Bought this card on Newegg after the pci card I had wouldnt allow large volumes.
Searched for a raid 5 capable card and saw this device. going with how my other card was constructed(sata ports on back side of the card) I assumed the card had esata and sata.

Not sure why it is advertised as a raid card with 5 support (when 5 requires 3+ drives) Will have to return it since it was listed incorrectly

Other Thoughts: Don't see how Raid 5 can work with only 2 interfaces
Back view would be good to show There are no sata ports underneath.
This card is a HBA not raid.

1 out of 5 eggs622 Driver Failure

Pros: cheap

Cons: Only needs to be one Con if the driver continues to fail randomly. DumpChk reports back the following:

BugCheck D1, {0, 9, 0, fffff8800107ecda}
Probably caused by : rr62x.sys ( rr62x+14cda )

This is on a brand new, virgin Windows 7 Pro System, so, no other odd ball drivers are installed on this computer. The Blue Screen of Death happens randomly, and I just happen to be sitting at the desk on one of the Blue Screen episodes. Ran Microsoft's Dumpchk against their database, and found out it is the 622 driver. There are no more "new" drivers for this board -- so, not sure what I am going to do at this time

Other Thoughts: It would be nice if the folks at High Point would update their drivers -- I cannot believe I am the only person that is having this problem.

5 out of 5 eggsWorking good in 8-bay JBOD

Pros: -works as a replacement to my Sil3234 bundled esata card with my Sans Digital TR8m-B

Cons: -none so far

Other Thoughts: I purchased a Sans Digital TR8M-B in 2009 from newegg which came with a Sil3234 esata card. In 2015, I started getting "The driver detected a controller error on disk#" event viewer ID 11 errors across all my 8 drives. I tried numerous things to fix it but nothing worked reliably. I took a gamble and ordered this RR622 and so far I have been error free! Super happy this card fixed my problems! kinda crazy the old card "died" as these controller cards have no moving parts. I run my Sans Digital with a WIndows 2008 R2 server. It may have been a software conflict but I was unwilling to rebuild the server (due to time constraints). I am just happy the RR622 fixed my problem

5 out of 5 eggsActual port multiplication, FINALLY!

Pros: Many of these eSATA cards (RAID or not) claim to offer port multiplication. What they fail to clarify is it only works in 1 port...if at all.

This RR 622 however, supports in both! Spec sheets claim 5 driver per port, and I can confirm 4 though each.

Cons: On board speaker/siren, this is a con for me, others may find it desirable. I set it off during first day of installing/troubleshooting different arrangements of settings. If I turn off the enclosure while computer is still on, it blares.

Other Thoughts: Using it to connect a Rosewill RSV-S8 enclosure (8 bay) to a Lenovo E73 running Win8.1Pro. in JBOD mode to utilize Win8.1's Storage Spaces function. So far so good.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed to work

Pros: It appeared to be a decent card for the price.

Cons: I installed the RocketRaid card to connect a GRaid via eSATA to a system with an Asus P6X-58E motherboard. With nothing connected to the card, the system worked fine - except, of course, I could not access the Raid.

With the Raid connected to the card, I could not access the Raid. After 10 minutes or so, the RocketRaid card emitted a continuous high-pitched beep. Then after about 60 seconds, it forced my system to power off! This was reproducible and repeatable.

I corresponded with Highpoint / RocketRaid support for several weeks; they even sent me new firmware to try.

The card simply didn't work on my system.

Other Thoughts: Support was responsive, but very slow to respond. Turnaround on updates and questions was a day, sometimes two.

1 out of 5 eggsPackaged with RAID storage solutions

Pros: I didn't have to buy it separately?

I got what I paid for?

Cons: Periodically freezes my computer after trying to write ANYTHING to it.

Other Thoughts: The issue can be fixed by removing the card or shutting off my raid box.

I'm excited to get what I paid for again... with a more expensive replacement.

5 out of 5 eggsIncredible for a little card

Pros: Worked right out of the box with FreeNAS 9.x, hosting a Mediasonic ProBox enclosure and 4 drives in ZFS array. Extremely good disc access times despite the PCIe 1x 2.0 speed limitation.

Cons: Died due to power brown-out and spike that killed the surge suppressor, PCU, and motherboard as well. My fault because I was lazy and taking my time to install the new UPS. This is NOT the parts fault, and in fact the drives and all data survived.

Other Thoughts: For low cost server components, this can't be beat if you are hosting multiple drives in an enclosure. I've ordered another for the time being, which is running along perfectly, but will be looking for the PCIe 3.0 compliant version when it is released for the upcoming build.

1 out of 5 eggsRun away from it!

Pros: 2 external ports

Cons: There are already so many negative comments for this product, but I still want to add a piece of my story.

1. Difficult to set up. Set it up with RAID 5 using Sans Digital TR5M+B enclosure (BTW, it is so bad that Sans Digital include this card as part of their enclosure, should really use other products). Not easy. So many tricks you have to google the answers, e.g. you have to run the service manager as administrator; nowhere to find their latest drive but only contacting the customer support (yep, the one on the website is definitely not updated); didn't PnP for my computer, etc.. The worst part is you got not clue or hint from the product manual/instruction/website. The only way to figure these out is to google and contact the customer service.

2. Unreliable performance! My RAID 5 worked for about a week, and started to give BSOD. Tried different configurations and updated drivers and firmware. No help. It got worse and worse, and started to report failed hard drive (all of HDD are brand new!). Was able to recover from HDD failure, but it took ~30 hr, each time. So far I have used the RAID for 2 months, and HDD failed for 3 times already. Have extremely unstable access to my storage: dropped array, BSOD, failed device are so often. Still trying to figure out what is the reason and it seems very sensitive to many factors: overall system resource, write/read speed, file size (at least one other person mentioned it too). Now I read it only because I need to copy all the data to my backup storage. Once it's done will never use it.

3. Other flaws: long boot time, low transfer rate, horrible customer service... most other things you saw from other comments.

Other Thoughts: One important reason I found to fail my RAID is the "Intel rapid storage" service, which was part of my pre-installed Windows. You can google how to completely remove the service from the system. After I did it, the array became slightly more stable, just slightly, meaning less frequent failure. So far that is the only thing I am sure how to improve the stability a bit. The customer service has no knowledge of it at all. The only thing they do is to blame your system is low-end.

5 out of 5 eggsPositive Review

Pros: For all the negative reviews, I thought I would go ahead and put in my 2 cents worth. I have owned this card for about 3 years now. Used it with 2 TRM8 towers and recently switched to a single TRM8. (8) 2TB Hitachi drive in a Raid 5 array. I keep one as a hot spare, so I have a total of 12TB left (8x2 = 16TB - 2TB for raid 5 parity - 2TB for a hot spare). The first time I had issues with my array was when one of the TRM4 towers failed (power supply). Bought another TRM4, swapped the drives, and away I went. Second TRM4 failed (power supply AGAIN!), so I move to a TRM8 (which uses a "standard" power supply and is easily changed out). In all that, I simply replugged the RR622 into the new towers and I was golden.

This morning, my wife hears an alarm going off (the TRM8 has an audible alarm when things go bad) By the time I went to check on it in the evening (after getting home from work), the RR622 had detected a failed drive (correctly) and rebuilt the array using the hot spare! TOTALLY AWESOME!! An absolute win for HighPoint in my opinion! The only thing I had to do was pull out the failed drive, pop in a new one, then set the hot spare as the new drive. This whole even (actually a non-event) worked flawlessly! For the price of this card, you cannot complain. Want a "real" raid card, then shell out several hundred dollars. For $50 (or whatever it is going for now) you simply cannot go wrong. Wait, you say you lost all of your data because of this "crummy" card? Of course you have a backup, right? Right? I don't care how much you spend on a raid card, if your not backing up your array, at some point you WILL loose your data. Guaranteed!! Don't blame HighPoint because you failed to backup your data. Anyone smart enough to create an array should be smart enough to backup their array too.

Cons: For the price, absolutely NONE! People need to stop whining that this isn't a "real" raid. No kidding! For $50 bucks!?!? Get real!

Other Thoughts: I bought a spare RR622, because at some point it WILL fail. I completely expect it to. Just like those $300 "real" raid cards, they will fail too.
