Not familiar with that particular card, but HighPoint has a bad
reputation here. As do cheap 'RAID' controllers in general (because
although you might think you're buying a hardware RAID solution ,
you're not). Unless you buy a RAID controller which does all the RAID
work on its own processor, you might as well use Linux software RAID
which gets more testing than the cheap vendors' host drivers.
