Most Favorable Review

Ubuntu 9.10 and Windows 7 (64)

HighPoint RocketRAID 640L PCI-Express 2.0 x4 Low Profile SATA RAID Controller Card
HighPoint RocketRAID 640L PCI-Express 2.0 x4 Low Profile SATA RAID Controller Card

Pros: Works fine on Ubuntu 9.10 and Windows 7 64 bit. Up to Linux-Headers-2.6.31-14 and that's all the support you will get from HighPoint. You have to modify the sh. your self for higher headers, i.e. 33.. or newer Ubuntu releases.

Cons: HighPoint doesn't support you in anyway with this product. Drivers don't keep up with new linux distros. Windows 7 is no problem.

Overall Review: Ubuntu Server 9.10 64bit is the best OS for NAS so far.

Most Critical Review

FAST -- 1 - 2 min on - Dead

ADATA S599 AS599S-40GM-C 2.5" 40GB SATA II Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
ADATA S599 AS599S-40GM-C 2.5" 40GB SATA II Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Worked for a while

Cons: Installed in a computer that was started for one day each month. Worked fine for a year. Then we where lucky to get the drive to work for 1 to 2 minutes and then freeze. Now it is dead, with less than 100 hours on it.

Overall Review: Newer purchase ADATA SSD again.
