Looking for some suggestions.  Modest budget.

I'd like a H/W based RAID card and SATA III, but considering budget I'd consider SATA II and H/W RAID.

I had once considered PERC RAID controllers as these could be had for a reasonable amount of money.

Thank you.

Depends a bit more on what you are looking for. If you are pushing data over single gigabit then most of the sataII stuff will be plenty fast.

I've got a Highpoint RocketRaid 2680 I'm looking to sell. Supports 8x Sata III. Supports very high IOPS for SSD's.

PERC's are indeed cheap and plentiful. They don't support jbod which can be a pita.

I'm a huge fan of the Areca cards. I currently run the 1882ix-12 for RAID 0 with Cricial C300 SSDs. You will get plenty of performance witht he 1880ix line as well.

Agreed. The 1882ix's are great. I've got a 1882ix-24 myself. It should come with a larger cache though.

Thank you, all.  I looked over the Areca pricing.  Good stuff.


Ended up with a $100 PERC 6i
