HighPoint’s RocketCache allows you to create your own high-performance storage solution using off the shelf hard disks and SSD’s. Capitalizing on HighPoint’s industry-proven RAID technology, RocketCache HBA’s can aggregate multiple SSD's and hard disks into single storage units, in order to maximize transfer speeds or data security. The RocketCache 3240X8 puts you in the driver’s seat. You can configure for maximum performance, optimized protection, high performance with cache protection or high protection and cache performance.
Pros: It's a good idea, in theory.
Cons: The technology has not matured.
Other Thoughts: When it becomes a bootable device, then it will be an excellent product.

Pros: This Cache card is super fast and very easy setup. I set mine up with a WD 600GB Velociraptor as the HDD and used 2 Adata SX900 64GB SSD's and a OCZ Vertex 4 as the cache accelerator. All the drives are SATA 6gbs. Im getting well over 1500MB per second reads and over 1200MB per second writes. the first program I loaded on the this system was a 37MB program and within a second after I pressed load, and Its was allready loaded and finished. Im going to make a change to a 1TB HDD as I want to put my 2 VelocityRaptors back as a RAID 0 configuration it only toped out at around 330Mb per second. and as soon as I get a litte more cash Im going to get another 3240x8 and tie the two Vraptors to two more SSD's I am extremely impressed with the performance of a such an inexpensive cache card. And would definately recomend it.
Cons: None so far. except that it seemed to slow my boot times by a tad.
Other Thoughts: From the reasearch I did about this card it a waste of money by using more than 60-64GB SSD's as the accelorator drives. And the Adata 64GB SSD's run over 500MB/s.

Pros: Inexpensive and relatively easy to configure. Definite speedup in some software build processes.
Cons: NTFS filesystem corruption. I haven't yet root caused it, but with the write back cache enabled, one of my large software build jobs consistently corrupts the filesystem.
Other Thoughts: The card's BIOS doesn't play nice with bitlocker. Assumes my system has changed config at every boot.

Somewhat Hit and Miss
Pros: Flexible ssd caching solution at a reasonable price.
Cons: Non-configurable, loud audible alarm.
Other Thoughts: Tech support was responsive, but couldn't answer my questions. Eventually, an engineer responded (in rather poor English) with detailed information.
