Review: HighPoint RocketRaid 642L SATA/eSATA PCI-E x4 card

HighPoint cross-platform 642L RAID card examined

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 PCI-E x4 HighPoint RocketRaid 642L. 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. Electronista was given a chance to try out this new card, click to see what we thought!
