Most onboard RAID controllers these days are rather flaky. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a RAID controller that is reliable, has many options and is inexpensive? We may have just found the answer with the HighPoint RocketRAID 1740 and 2300 SATA II cards. Could these inexpensive RAID controllers be the solid and feature-packed cards you’ve been looking for? Join me as we take a sneak-peak to upcoming reviews of the HighPoint RocketRAID 1740 and 2300 SATA II cards.
Both the HighPoint RocketRAID 1740 and 2300 came packaged in similar ways. We don't want to spoil too much of the upcoming review, but here are some pictures of the cards. The top row of pictures are of the 1740 and the bottom row are of the 2300.
The 2300 is a PCIe 1x card while the 1740 is for use in a PCI slot. Will there be any difference in performance benefit by using one over the other? Stay Tuned.
