Used in home to build RAID 6 from eight 4 TB discs. Is very usual and fast for me, for home. I made few tests with different discs, RAID and settings. See pictures, maybe will help you to decide that this cheapest RAID card on market is for you or not. HighPoint RocketRAID 2700 HBA’s are cost-effective, high-performance PCI-Express 2.0 6Gb/s SAS RAID controllers, and are ideal for SMB server and workstation configurations. HighPoint Turbo-RAID Technology: For over a decade, HighPoint has strived to take the cost and complexity out of RAID. We were the first to introduce affordable RAID 5 solutions to the storage marketplace, for both SMB and consumer applications. HighPoint Turbo RAID Products and Solutions are powered by our industry proven RAID stack, which leverages the powerful system resources and robust 2nd generation PCIe x8 host interface of todays modern computing platforms. Turbo RAID Technology delivers the industry’s best Cost-Performance value, and the industry’s most affordableRAID-6 Storage Solutions. RocketRAID 272x/271x HBA’s support a wide-range of storage configurations including RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, & JBOD. Complete, Flexible Upgrade Paths: RocketRAID 2700 HBA’s are fully backwards compatible with SAS/SATA 3Gb/s devices, PCI-Express 1.0 and 2.0 motherboards, and are compliant with all major operating systems including Windows, Linux and macOS. RAID arrays can be freely moved to any other RocketRAID 2700 HBA. Upgrading, scaling and expanding storage has never been easier. RocketRAID 2700 external-port HBA’s were designed to work in conjunction with Rocket EJ Series SATA JBOD Expander and SAS-Expansion modules, which can dramatically expand the storage capability of each Mini-SAS connector.
