Highpoint RocketRAID 1820A Review

In a recent quest to add a 1+ terabyte media server to my home network, I stumbled onto the Highpoint RocketRAID 1820A. This RAID interface supports up to 8 SATA drives with support for RAID levels 0, 1, 5, 10, and JBOD at only $208.00 through

If you have ever hunted for a RAID 5 card, finding something that does true hardware RAID for a reasonable price is next to impossible. Even if you do find it, the chance of drivers being available for anything other than Windows is near 0. Nevertheless, Highpoint delivers hardware RAID 5 with drivers for Linux, FreeBSD, and even Mac OS X. It also supports Windows if you prefer.
