This review is from: HighPoint RocketRAID 622 PCI-Express 2.0 x1 SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Controller Card
Pros: I didn't have to buy it separately?
I got what I paid for?
Cons: Periodically freezes my computer after trying to write ANYTHING to it.
Other Thoughts: The issue can be fixed by removing the card or shutting off my raid box.
I'm excited to get what I paid for again... with a more expensive replacement.
Pros: The enclosure might be fine?
Cons: The included PCIe card is a significant detriment to the performance of my 4.8 GHz 6-core watercooled monstroscity of a computer. It locks up my computer for a few seconds of every minute after trying to write ANYTHING to it.
Other Thoughts: San Disk ought to ship this enclosure with one of their own cards. The included HPT RocketRaid 622 is a sad excuse for a raid controller.
I'm excited to see if a "SANS DIGITAL HA-DAT-4ESPCIE" that I just ordered will allow me to push the envelope of my 8-bay raid box...
Pros: Consistent speeds in HDTach
Cons: 1. Slower than my OCZ Vertex II
2. Periodically locks up (without crashing) with disk light stuck on
2.a. Their recommendation is to secure erase to fix it.
2.b. After doing that, the issue occurred AGAIN, 2 months later.
Other Thoughts: Corsair blocks the words "OCZ" and "VERTEX" from their forums for a reason... because other companies make other SSD's.
I'm going to replace this drive with one from another company, and put this junk in the laptop that collects dust under my desk at work.
