Review: HighPoint RocketRaid 642L SATA/eSATA PCI-E x4 card
While a handful of drives is adequate for most, there are situations calling for a truly epic amount of storage -- either internal or in external RAID cases. Or perhaps a specific computer has an older SATA protocol on its motherboard, and the need for speed is beckoning -- on a budget. Either situation is addressed by the new <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/278766==http://www.highpoint-tech.com/USA_new/series_rr600-overview.htm" rel='nofollow'>PCI-E x4 HighPoint RocketRaid 642L</a>. By itself, the specs for the HighPoint RocketRaid 642L card are fairly impressive. The card is a full 6Gb per second PCI-E controller with a pair of external e-SATA ports, and a pair of internal SATA as well. With port multiplying cases, the e-SATA ports can support five drives each, for a total of ten external drives. Specs are one thing, actual utility is another. <em>Electronista</em> was given a chance to try out this new card, <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/278767==http://www.macnn.com/reviews/highpoint-rocketraid-642l-sataoresata-card.html" rel='nofollow'>click to see what we thought</a>!<br />
