HighPoint RocketU 1022AM PCI-Express 2.0 x1 Low Profile USB 3.0 RAID Controller Card for Mac
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Good external RAID option for Mac Pros 06/21/2012

This review is from: HighPoint RocketU 1022AM PCI-Express 2.0 x1 Low Profile USB 3.0 RAID Controller Card for Mac

Pros: Easy to setup and use. It works like a standard RAID card, but USB ports make connections much simpler. The performance is comparable to many SATA PCI-E cards, and is very reasonably priced for a Mac-only RAID controller. RAID 0, 1 support is a nice addition (the card has its own software - not created using Disk Utility). Seems to work fine with large drives as well (I have a pair of 3TB Freeagents).

Cons: No issue with the product, but the name is really confusing - it can be very hard to find information about it online if you don't search using the full name: “RocketU Dual USB3.0 for Mac”.
Newegg lists Ru1022AM? Maybe Highpoint's part number? Some will confuse the Highpoint RU1022A with this card. DO NOT make this mistake. The "A" is for PC's only, and is actually a different design (check the pictures).

Other Thoughts: Good external RAID option for Mac Pros - performance is on par, and USB ports/connectors are much easier and more reliable, in my opinion, than eSATA (and cheaper than external MiniSAS). Also, you don't need the power cable to use the card - this is for the odd USB3.0 device that isn't self powered.

HighPoint Rocket 620 PCI-Express 2.0 x1 SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Controller Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Easy to use just take few minutes to setup the card, this card is plug and play no driver need. Has two SATA 6Gb/s ports, I connected with my 3TB Hard Drives the performance was good too.
I found they have Rocket 640L, I would like to buy this card with 4 ports for my another system next time.

Cons: no at this time

5 out of 5 eggs Easy / Speedy RAID Card! Love It 11/26/2011

This review is from: HighPoint RocketRAID 640 PCI-Express 2.0 x4 SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Controller Card

Pros: Good Management interface compared to onboard RAID. The RAID 5 performance is surprisingly good, and RAID 0 is impressive. Works equally well with hard drives and SSD’s, though you will want to update the BIOS for 3TB support.

Cons: Minor quibble, but the printed documentation sucks – lucky the CD includes a better copy.

Other Thoughts: Works with port-multipliers, but haven’t tried that yet.
