2 out of 5 eggseSATA Card DOES NOT WORK!

Pros: The enclosure is OUTSTANDING and works exactly as it should. However, the entire package should be outstanding, and it is NOT. I gave it an extra Egg, just because the Rosewill enclosure DOES work. However, they are not getting any more than that because they should be supplying it with a quality eSATA card.

Cons: The supplied HighPoint RocketRaid 622 card is unreliable. No matter what I did, I could not get it to operate under ANY RAID configuration. The array would constantly break and when it was working, data transfer was horribly slow. Neither Rosewill nor HighPoint customer service was of ANY good. Rosewill blamed HighPoint and HighPoint did NOTHING! Highpoint gets NO Eggs!!!

Other Thoughts: When I hooked the enclosure directly to the eSATA on my motherboard and configured my motherboard for RAID I could get the enclosure to work. However, my motherboard RAID controller is slow and I specifically bought this model because of the supplied eSATA RAID card.

I CANNOT RECOMMEND THIS TO ANYONE.

3 out of 5 eggsGood at first - Now dead

Pros: It lasted 2 years and ran good. Worked well with the highpoint card that came with it.

Cons: Took all of a day to build the RAID 5 array on four 1.5 TB drives.
Every time I rebooted, it took at least an extra 2 - 3 minutes.
Now, the box is dead. It was showing signs of failing about two months ago but limped along until 2 days ago, now, it's just dead. Fortunately, I set my data to back up nightly... I called NewEgg and they told me my only option is to purchase a new one. I decided to reconfigure my system due to this.

2 out of 5 eggsMessing up my system

Pros: Price, looks, quiet fan noise, works well when it does.

Cons: When I have it connected to my Windows 8 PC it produces the same sequence of events; first, my display driver crashes, when the system regains its bearings I can't see any of the hard drives in the array and the indicator lights on the front of the array are out. Worst of all the system starts making high pitch, whiney noise very similar to a UPS unit warning. Even disconnecting the enclosure doesn't get rid of it; I have to restart the system each time that happens. My setup is a simple JBOD and it worked fine for the first 2 weeks.

Other Thoughts: I haven't been in touch with the tech support due to it being so close to the holidays. Very interested in what they might say.

Manufacturer Response:

The controller card for this prodcut is not compatible with Windows 8. Please consist of the following alternative Rocketraid 622.

1 out of 5 eggsUnreliable and possibly damaging!!!

Pros: Price and performance when it was working.

Cons: Power supply cycling on and off, bad power supply, and may have damaged some of my hard drives

Other Thoughts: I have had tow of these for about 1 1/2 years, one is still working and I have used these sparingly, over all not reliable products, single USB drive interfaces seem to be the only ones that last.

1 out of 5 eggsNever ever but it!

Pros: Easy solution to build a RAID-enabled disk library.

Cons: The enclosure really gives me a hard time. I changed it via RMA two times and I have same problems. The card RocketRaid 622 is disaster. It gives BSOD pretty often and I started to look for a similar card, but it is not easy. Last few days the enclosure starts generating a lot of errors, it constantly tries to rebuild the RAID volume by some reason.
I am gonna to give up and move HDDs to another desktop. Unfortunately the server does not have enough internal slots to accommodate those disks.

Other Thoughts: Spend $200-250 for new desktop case + CPU + RAM rather buying this unreliable enclosure. It is a joke.

4 out of 5 eggsConvenient

Pros: Simple and solid piece of hardware. Effective (and fairly quiet) cooling.

Cons: Although you can slide disks directly in from the front door, you'll have to unscrew and remove the outer case to secure them with drive screws. But this is only an issue when you're inserting/switching disks.

Other Thoughts: NOTE FOR LINUX USERS

Even if you're only using this as a JBOD passthrough, you'll pretty much need to install some custom HighPoint software for the RocketRAID PCI card. There are two main things you'll need, both available from their website (google the RocketRAID model number to find it):

* A kernel module for baseline hardware compatibility. HighPoint provides these pre-compiled for a number of distros, but they also provide the source, and based on the advertised version numbers you're probably best-off building it from source anyway. (It's an easy build, and there's only one .ko to worry about.)

* The WebGUI or CLI, which allows you to configure the hardware RAID or do other stuff like detach individual disks. (Personally I recommend the WebGUI for ease-of-use.) Setup is fairly un-complicated if you skim the included documentation. But both options are provided in limited package formats (RPM only for the WebGUI, RPM and DEB for the CLI) so depending on your distro you may need to manually extract the package.

ONE MORE NOTE

The PCI card has a speaker on it! This emits a very unpleasant noise when there's an unexpected failure, including when you unplug a disk, or turn off the enclosure. The only way to stop this noise is to use the HighPoint RocketRAID WebGUI/CLI, or to shutdown your computer. So, install the WebGUI or CLI.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It was delivered in one piece and it kept my papers from blowing away when my window was open.

Cons: The controller card is junk. I am using in a Ubuntu server and after spending hours figuring out how to get the correct driver for the correct kernel version the controller card does not even work for any RAID configuration. It only works if the disks are setup as JBOD. Any parity and the server crashes from a kernel panic. I'm not the only one having problems with cheap piece of trash. Almost 100 hours wasted.

Other Thoughts: DO NOT TAKE A CHANCE!
