This review is from: HighPoint RocketRAID 622 PCI-Express 2.0 x1 SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Controller Card
OK, card for the money, if you can get it to work.
Driver availability/stability issue.
San Digital TR5MB, original PCIe card started showing some issues.
CentOS 5.9 server (Dell Precision 390). I was hoping it would be plug and play card, but it did come with a driver disk. Unfortunately, the disk only went to CentOS 5.5. After a few trials and tribulations, I found additional drivers on the web site (up to CentOS 5.8). Had to download the opensource and was able to create driver for my kernel. After insmod, began scanning the unit, again and again. Rebooted, hangs on udev, scan issue again. Rebooted, after insmod was able to access the drives in the unit. driver occasionally aborts, so there is a stability issue. Haven't quite given up yet.
