Style Name: 2x eSATA Port Verified Purchase
I already had one of these and it worked flawlessly in two different Intel-based computers. So when a friend of mine wanted his own RAID array, I got this for him too. However, his computer is AMD-based, and it wouldn't work.

The issue was his motherboard already had a RAID controller and he was using it to mirror his C: drive. But when I booted with the 622 card inserted and the RAID enclosure connected, the 622 would walk the disks in the RAID enclosure, but the internal RAID controller never initialized. So it couldn't boot because it couldn't see the mirrored C: drive.

Looking at the web, I saw this was probably an INT13 problem, and the way to fix it was to get a firmware update from HighPoint support. Unfortunately, HighPoint doesn't put their firmware update on the web for download, so you have to contact them. This was more difficult than you would have thought.

I first tried emailing them using the support email address they had in the printed documentation that came with the card. There was no response. After several days, I sent a follow up email, but that fell on deaf ears too.

So then I called the support number also listed in the documentation. No one ever picked up this number, and it always went to voice mail. The OGM said "leave a message and we'll get back to you in 24 hours", but I never received a return call. This went on for 2 weeks.

Then I called the main number to complain, and only then could I speak to a real person. I was told that HighPoint no longer provided any other method of support except web support. Once I did this, HighPoint eventually got back to me with a download link for the firmware update as well as instructions.

Style Name: 2x SATA / 2x eSATA Ports Verified Purchase
I have been using this card for a year for two external drives connected to the eSATA ports with no complaints about speed or accuracy (i.e., no drive errors read or write). That should get a controller 5 stars since what you want is speed while accurate. (This is with Windows Server 2012, and the driver in AHCI mode not RAID mode.)

However:

1 star removed for absolutely annoying and unnecessary 30 second delay in this card's BIOS at each boot to "scan for drives". Other SATA controllers don't do this. It is impossible to avoid via configuration of any kind. While your server is stable and running at weeks between reboots this 30 second delay isn't important, but when you go into a software/hardware configuration mode (e.g., upgrading the OS or replacing failed drives) then a 30 second delay for each reboot gets frustrating real quickly.

Second star removed for this card not working with Windows Storage Spaces. The problem (which you can find in various postings on the web) is that this controller doesn't assign distinct "uniqueid" values to each attached drive, as a result, some drives attached to this card will not show up as available to be assigned to a storage pool. You'd think calling a field "uniqueid" in the specification would be a sufficient hint to a firmware programmer that the values assigned by the driver ought to be, you know, UNIQUE i.e., distinct, but not in this case.

Style Name: 4x SATA Port Verified Purchase
: Short version : Quick install, fast card, great product.

: Other Version : Installing this card was as painless as it gets. It's small and includes 4 SATA cables. After installing the card and powering up I installed the driver disc and rebooted. The config screen was easy to walk through. I set up my 4 3TB drives as RAID 5, saved and rebooted. The new drive was recognized by Win 7. After formatting I was ready to go.

I had my original 4 drive SW RAID still attached to the motherboard (ASUS Ramgage Gene IV) with the new drives attached to RocketRaid. I started copying close to 5.5TB of data from old to new. I watched peaks over 130/mb but it ran steady between 40-70 /mb. In all it took about 28 hours to move all the data (with some delays in interaction by me rearranging some things on the new drives).

Once the data transfer was complete, I detatched the old drives, installed the new ones in the case and closed it up. When I rebooted, all things we right where they should be (except for a small issue of drive letters). I didn't do a benchmark but it did seem these drives ran faster than the previous set (all drives were SATA III 3TB drives). This was especially noticable when writing data to the drives and copying data from other networked computers. HW RAID vs. SW RAID might have something to do with this impression too.

Cons:

None that I have found. Maybe that I paid for overnight shipping but didn't get it overnight. No reflection on the product in any case.

In summary, this is a very good card, at a very good price and it just plain does what it says.

Style Name: 2x SATA Port Verified Purchase
Installed this card in a new Win 7/64 PC I built and it works great. Installation was very easy and went smooth. Rather then run 2 or 3 independent HDDs for data and media storage, which I had on my Win XP machine before this one, I wanted to run a RAID 1 setup this time so all my files would be automatically backed up. This card does the trick, and the price is very reasonable and affordable. I now have two Hitachi Deskstar 2 TB 3.5-Inch CoolSpin RPM SATA III 6Gbps 32 MB Cache Internal Hard Drive 0F12117 for 2 TB of mirrored (RAID 1) storage. Plenty of room to store my large collection of photos and mp3 files. Setup was fairly simple using the WebGUI from HighPoint, and Win 7 sees the RAID array as a single 2 TB drive. Perfect! I never needed to go into the BIOS of the motherboard or Rocket RAID card. I would highly recommend this card to anyone looking for an affordable RAID solution to install inside a PC.
