The Highpoint Rocket Raid 404 was judged to be the fastest IDE RAID controller in the group test by a very close margin. The performance in striping mode is a particular strong point for this controller.
A total of eight drives can be connected to the four channels in RAID levels 0, 1, 0+1, and as a JBOD. The lack of buffer memory and external interface is disappointing. A warranty period of only two years does not gain this card many points; neither does the non-existent exchange service and the exclusively English-speaking telephone hotline and website.
The Ultra-DMA/ 133 controller is suitable for applications such as audio and video processing, which require a high level of performance and a lot of disk space. With a good overall performance, the Rocket Raid 404 takes third place.
