Is HighPoint Technologies a good company for raid cards? I've been trying to decide between the HighPoint RocketRAID 1820 (8 Port SATA Controller Card) and the 3Ware Escalade 8506 (4 Port SATA Controller Card). They are both, I believe, 64bit (which I have support for on my mobo). I know aolhater swares by 3ware, but I dunno if I want to spend that much money. Is HighPoint any good?
I bought a highpoint raid controller for the server I mentioned earlier. The array would never finish initializing. It would lock up every time. I completely eliminated any possible problem by trying it in a different machine. RMA'd it and got the escalade and have been using it since.

3ware > *

edit: the highpoint is pci-x 133mhz, the 3ware I got is 64-bit/66MHz PCI

Ok, thanks for your help. Looks like I'll bite the bullet and spend the extra cash for the better card. Now to see if a relative of mine can get anything for cheaper.....

btw if i were doing PATA raid I'd only use as many drives as I had channels. Two drives in an array on the same channel = performance suffers

that's kinda slow as I've usually averaged about 2000mb on my raid to raid transfers with 3ware.

all of the raid arrays ( with 3ware ) are master only individual channel.

How the fuck are you sir? 11TB at home? Jesus, our main HQ SAN is only 14TB usable, and I have 21TB at the DR site. I guess by "business documents" you mean Porn, and by "Linux ISO's"you mean Blu-Ray rips

I'd say you win peace of mind knowing that you won't have to wait 3 minutes for your crappy DSL connection to DL a 30 second anal clip every time you're ready to punch the clown.
