My experience with Highpoint RAID controllers

Repeat.  Ad infinitum.  Ad nauseum.

Only happens when you’re attempting to write massive amounts of data…which is only a problem if you’re using RAID to safely store massive amounts of data while providing fast access to that data.  As I do.

Although I admit to being vulnerable to accusations that the drives I’m using are not on  the “recommended” list (I don’t know if they are, or not), when all four drives are knocked out of a RAID 1+0 set and the standby spare drive is dumped, too, rather than losing just one drive or just one mirror set because of TLER, I suspect the RAID controller – a RocketRAID 620.
