Customer Reviews

Finally got it working! 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. The instructions, however, were missing some steps, so it took another couple of go-rounds until I actually got this thing working.But working it is now. It's even faster than it was before the firmware upgrade - I now see about 100mB/s on writes, where before it was closer to 60mB/s.On final note. In the process of getting this to work, I found that during the boot, you can press the END key on the keyboard when the 622 is initializing. This will bypass the 622's BIOS initialization and proceed with the rest of the boot. When Windows starts, the Windows driver initializes the card again anyway, so it works just fine in Windows even if it doesn't initialize in BIOS. This is how I was able to use the RAID array before I got the firmware update from HighPoint. 4You need this info. Alright, so I went and got one for myself, because I was having difficulty setting up a RAID on my motherboard through my own methods. After some research, I came to the conclusion that having a RAID controller on a PCIE slot (PCIE x1 FYI) would handle the RAID, and avoid the necessary overhead to the system.The unit is quite easy to install. Just find an open PCIE slot, bump out the grate covering the slot on the back of the PC case, and slide into the slot. The unit came with SATA cables (I think they're SATA III, but I am using my own that are for sure SATA III), and a low-profile din if needed.Once the hardware is installed, boot up your PC and navigate to HighPoint's website. You will need to download two items in order to set up your RAID. For ease of discovery, I would recommend Googling to find the relevant page on HighPoint's website - it isn't very intuitive, but Google's spiders have found it no problem for you. So, download BOTH the drivers for the card, AND the WebGUI. Then extract both folders, and install the WebGUI. For the RAID drivers, you will need to navigate to Device Manager, find it in the list of items (it will probably have a yellow exclamation mark on its icon), and then Right Click>Update Driver. From there, you then need to search manually on your computer for the drivers. Navigate to the folder that you extracted just a bit ago for the drivers, and choose the folder that fits your system (32 or 64 bit). The utility will finish, and successfully mount the controller. Then, restart your computer so that the computer can properly initialize the controller.Now, we can finally begin using the hardware. Launch the WebGUI, and navigate through the utility. Confirm that the controller is finding the drives correctly, and navigate to a tab that has "Array" on the left selection. From here, you can begin a simple utility that will create your desired RAID.Lastly, once you have finished setting up the RAID, open up Windows Explorer (like you would to open a file somewhere on your computer), Right Click on your computer, and then click on Manage. From here, select Disk Management under Storage. You should see a new drive with the same size that you set up during the RAID utility, and should also have a black (not navy blue) bar across the top. Right Click, select "New Simple Volume", and follow the Setup Wizard to create your new drive.Once you have set up the drive, you have finished, and can begin using it just as you would with any other drive. Congratulations! You now have an active RAID array on your PC. 4Good for JBOD eSATA 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. 3It installed easily with the drivers that I downloaded from the website ... I already purchased one of these cards to use on a Linux system about two years ago. It worked out of the box with no issues.I recently purchased a second one to use on a Windows 2012 server system with an ASUS P9X79 WS motherboard. It installed easily with the drivers that I downloaded from the website (I did not receive a driver CD with the card!). After I connected 4 - 3TB drives and configured them in a RAID 5 array the system failed to boot. When I disconnected the four drives, the system booted fine.After reading various articles and reviewing the BIOS/Firmware for the card I noticed it was running V 1.0 of the firmware. I then downloaded the latest BIOS/Firmware (V 1.3), flashed the BIOS and that resolved the issue.So please make note here that BIOS/Firmware 1.0 will not work on some systems. 4Great potential, but needs SERIOUS 64-bit driver improvement work Was initially very excited about this card, as it had both the e-SATA port multiplication AND 6gb/sec SATA throughput I needed for my drive array attached to my Windows Server 2012-based micro server. But stability of late has been declining due to timeout response errors directed at the card - disconnecting my drive array and throwing my server into near-constant turmoil. Turns out that the drivers for x64 Windows OS platforms apparently are to blame, as others have reported similar issues and when testing the card and array on a 32-bit Windows OS, 100% reliability is returned. The "latest" x64 Windows drivers for this card on the Highpoint site are from 2012...so not sure why there hasn't been more work done to improve stability on a card that must have extensive usage on various x64 server machines. I'm one card/driver timeout away from switching to a more reliable e-SATA/RAID card...even if its only 3gb/sec. 3Wonderfully simple, very fast. I'm using this to run 3 Seagate 600 SSDs in RAID-0 on Windows 8 with no issue, and crazy fast speeds. Love it.Figuring out which drivers to use took about half an hour, and probably would've taken significantly less if I had read a bit more closely - HighPoint has several models with *very* similar names, so if you run into problems getting the drivers to work, make sure that the device and the driver actually have the same name.The one significant downside I'll mention is that the card adds about 20-30 seconds to your boot time, and so far, I've been unable to find a way around it. Not a big deal if you're the type who rarely shuts down, but if you're turning on your computer multiple times a week or day, the added boot time can be a problem; especially if you were hoping to use it with SSD's to speed up your system. 5A Good, Solid Raid Card I purchased this RAID card to use with WD 3tb RED drives as my main storage array.The original plan was for 2 cards with 2 Raid 0 arrays attached.YOU CANNOT RUN TWO CARDS at once (at least in my experience). The BIOS will give an "out of memory" error and lock up.Pros;Extremely resiliant, I was able to move arrays between two cards, in two separate sockets without errors or having to rebuild.Just plug and go.Extremely versatile and easy to set up (assuming basic familiarity with RAID)In my system it was supported by UEFI biosCons;The windows management software is a bit like it came from the 90s The Intel Raid monitoring software is much much better.It does add a small delay to boot time. Although in my experience it was only about 5-10s.The resiliency is the reason this is a great card. My second card is a cold backup in case a controller dies. 4Solid card for use with basic RAID sets I've been using HighPoint RocketRAID cards in Macs for years, and I've always found them to affordable and reliable for maintaining external RAID sets for non-mission critical applications. For this card, I needed to create a large RAID 5 volume out of 7 4TB drives in a 15 drive eSATA port multiplier enclosure. Using the web-based software, I was able to quickly create the RAID set, which then popped up as a volume to be initialized on the Mac. I use the volume as one of my rotating backup sets with Retrospect backup software, and it's quite speedy and stable. It's certainly not even close to being as fast as other types of external interfaces like miniSAS or fiber channel, but it gets the job done for this particular application. I'm going to give 4 stars instead of five due to its x2 PCIe capability (most other RAID cards are at least x4) and its occasional inability to remount volumes once inserted into the eSATA unit without a restart (basically a hot swap). 4Doesn't play nicely as a second controller without flashing the BIOS I bought this card because my on-board eSATA controller was out of capacity. After installing this card and a new drive I though I was good to go because it booted up first time. However, after configuring the drive the machine would no longer boot up. Delete the configuration and it would boot again. The upshot seems to be that the card expected the drive to be bootable, which it wasn't and is never going to be. After some digging around on the vendors website I came across an instruction to flash the cards BIOS and turn off the INT13 setting. The instructions were very sparse, but doing that involved not only downloading the BIOS update but also creating a bootable USB stick to boot into DOS and run the update. I got there in the end, but probably spent about 3 hours figuring it all out. The card now works fine but note that it is slow during boot up. It sits on a Scanning for Devices screen for about 20 seconds. 3Get a Slot Fan These cards are much maligned, and rightly so. They're easy to use, but have a dependability issue. I finally came across the solution that has created an excellent solution. I bought a slot fan for the adjoining slot. Keeps that card cool as can be. I've not heard a squawk or error out of the raid set since I found this solution. Works perfectly. Had the same thing happen on an LSI Commercial Card, except in that instance I screwed a mini-fan right to the heat sink. Runs cool as can be. Lesson learned. 4
