1 out of 5 eggs Worst thing I ever bought 07/07/2011

This review is from: HighPoint RocketRAID 2300 PCI Express SATA II (3.0Gb/s) Controller Card


It's small.


It doesn't fit in a low profile case since the sata cables need a bit of extra space to fit on the card to the case's cover can be closed.

I've try 3-4 week to get the controller work as I waned. It's fail all the test I've done. It doesn't restore properly from a simulated hard drive crash. The OS (ubuntu 10.04.2) can't detect the driver properly. A plugged cd-rom is not even detected. The controller doesn't promote the disk in the BIOS.

Please, don't buy.

Other Thoughts:

After 3-4 week of headache, I want to return it but it's just too late. I will probably by a chip Sata controller and do software raid with MD.

Too bad it cost me 129$ extra and 3 week of my time.
