I recently setup a 480GB raid5 array for work, using 4 160GB hitachi 8m cache drives. working flawlessly so far.
I knew that would be a factor... just checked the pata counterpart and it is indeed almost $100 cheaper at $252.

Is HighPoint Technologies a good company for raid cards? I've been trying to decide between the HighPoint RocketRAID 1820 (8 Port SATA Controller Card) and the 3Ware Escalade 8506 (4 Port SATA Controller Card). They are both, I believe, 64bit (which I have support for on my mobo). I know aolhater swares by 3ware, but I dunno if I want to spend that much money. Is HighPoint any good?
