ReviewNation has reviewed Highpoint's RocketRaid 404,
A raid-controller that cost $105 :
With the advent of large size/low cost hard drives, RAID is becoming more of a viable backup solution for end-users. What is RAID you say? Well it stands for Redundant Array of Independent (Inexpensive) Disks, a standard created in the 1980's at UC Berkeley. The idea is to replace a single hard drive with multiple drives with fault-tolerant data redundancy, invisible to the end-user. What used to be a server-only option is now available to the masses, at a low cost to the consumer. A prime example of this is the Highpoint RocketRAID 404 controller supplied to us by Highpoint Technologies
