Re: Promise RAID controler problems

Most "IDE RAID" products from Promise or Highpoint are not real "HW RAID" at

the most expensive cards from Promise (those have even own memory).
I have to second this recommendation.
IMO the 3ware RAID cards are THE solution for hardware ATA RAID. Everything
else is substandard (firguratively AND literally) when compared to the 3ware.
Yes, there's the Promise SuperTrak (that's the card Eduard alluded to), but
it costs *twice* what the comparable 3ware card does, and is 25% slower.
