This review is from: HighPoint RocketRAID 2721 PCI-Express 2.0 x8 Low Profile SATA / SAS Controller Card
Pros: Fits the HP Microserver Its relatively fast expensive
Cons: works with Windoze but difficult to get it working under Linux. You have to compile the drivers which can be difficult for noobs. never did get the HTTP web based management working.
Other Thoughts: the driver download section is difficult to use, you can end up at a web page that has old drivers / manuals
