customer reviews
Customer Reviews

“Just a great piece of hardware for the price. Faster than PCI-X RAID cards (for servers) and very well supported. I'm using it in FreeBSD 6.2 without issue. The module driver works great, no need to compile. Highpoint also supplies an CLI manager, which I've also used. Also, tech support is great. I had problems (my fault, not the card) and when I called support, I get an answer right away from a human who actually knows the product.”
