Channel Check under Windows 2008 R2 1/2/2012 11:40:47 AM

Pros: None.

Cons: I placed the 2744 driver under the Windows Driver Verifier. It immediately detected that the 2744 driver was using kernal memory which it had freed.

Windows will boot if no disks attached to the 2744. If disks are attached, the error is "NMI: Channel Check / IOCHK". This usually represents a hardware conflict. Using an HP Proliant DL380 G7.

In system BIOS, the 2744 detacts attached disks, configures and initializes arrays. This problem appears to be Windows centric, in the disk I/O sections of the 2744 driver.

HighPoint Technical Support only responds with scripted answers. Then only through a web support portal and "very" slowly. Any technical details provided, stack trace info, crash dumps and the like are completely ignored.

I had high hopes for this controller, I have been completely disappointed and will probably seek to return it. I took a chance and paid the price.

Overall Review: HighPoint technical support is worthless. Best to avoid.

Does not work 9/30/2011 10:17:13 PM

Pros: Promises to support up to 16 drives

Cons: Drive initialization takes forever. In my case, it never completes, and the buggy driver and management interface cause disk manager to hang and prevent effective management of the attached arrays.

Overall Review: Do Not Buy. Does Not Work.

Quality peice of equipment 3/8/2011 1:46:29 PM

Pros: Monumental performance increase in all of my games. I upgraded from an 8800GTS. I can now run Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, Crysis 2, and Deus Ex 3 at the highest settings. Of course you have to take into consideration all of the GTX580's in which i raided together, while at the same time running 26 3tb SSD's in crossfire.....i love my computer :)

Cons: lack of compatibility while trying to SLI together my 256gb of DDR RAM. I would definatly suggest spending the extra benjamin if you plan on doing so

Overall Review: Not heavy enough to work as a paper weight. Plan on buying a few more so i can RAID together my 12 Intel i7, sandy bridge processors.
