4 out of 5 eggsIt's an SAS RAID card

Pros: 8 SAS/SATA 6GB/s connections through two SFF interfaces. Installation was easy enough and the included software makes management and maintenance a breeze.
I obtained near theoretical IO speeds with 4 short stroked Constellation drives in RAID 10.

Cons: This is not completely a hardware level RAID controller. It has a BIOS accessible during boot. Here you can create arrays and various other drive utilities. Unfortunetly, the arrays will not initialize until the software is installed and ran.

Other Thoughts: Other than the software needing to be running, this is a great card. The software is only there for configuration and management and as such does not put much, if any, of a load on the system.

I am using this card to build an external mirror array of our internal RAID 10e array on a Xeon file server running win server 08 r2. A little extreme in the redundancy, but necessary.

3 out of 5 eggsSort of works, warranty is a hassle

Pros: It does work, have it handling 5x750GB+1TB in RAID5 and 2x250GB in RAID1 with some JBOD left over from the 1TB and two 250GBs. Similar to a Matrix RAID setup. Crystaldisk gives read speeds in the 250-350MB/s (sequential) range.

Cons: Channel 3 reliably fails on a daily basis. After talking with Highpoint on the matter they recognize the fault with the controller card but refuse to ship a new card out before receiving the faulty card. So be warned, if the card is faulty you will basically lose access to whatever the card was running for at least a week.

Other Thoughts: On the upshot, I've found that if I restart the system after booting in the problem with channel 3 disappears and it will run stable for long periods of time, longer than I care to find out. This is most likely an issue with external based setups and not something I would expect to find on, say, the 2720. The problem appears to persist even when allowing the drives to spin up before powering on the system itself.
