Default HighPoint RocketRAID 2310: review by TechGage

After a range of testing on a DFI board, TechGage found that this dedicated RAID card would takea load of of your cpu, and improve most aspects of your computer's performance enough to give it the Editor's choice and a 9/10 grade. Here's their list of Pros and Cons:
  • Pros
  • Small
  • Affordable
  • Performs better than onboard solutions in most tests
  • Takes load off of the CPU
  • PCI-E
  • 4 SATA II ports
  • NCQ support for those that need it
  • Informative Manual
  • Cons
  • No eSATA (see RocketRAID 2314 for this)

I've been wanting one of these HighPoint RocketRAID cards for a while now. Of course I was looking at it for Window Home Server (coming out later this year) with their version that has 8 or 12 SATA connectors. Now hook up all those with 500GB to 1,000GB drives... *drool*

12TB Home Server?
I can dream.
