            Comments about HighPoint Rocket 622 Dual Port eSATA 6 Gbps PCI Express 2.0 Host Adapter:

            Despite my less than nimble and fat fingers, I got this card installed and it worked beautifully from the start. No messing around with drivers or other unnecessary software. The eSATA cable was too short - so I'd advise buying a longer cable with the card. Four stars only because the cable was too short - otherwise, great. This drive and the eSATA connection serves as the core of a video editing system.

            The card is backward compatible with a 3 Gbps hard drive - which is good because that's what we've got. But it's nice to know we can upgrade.

                  Our prior review of this host adapter proved premature. Although it worked as a controller, it fails to play well with others. Each time WinXP is booted, this device initiates a Found New Hardware sequence, no matter how many times it's been installed.

                      The worst problem you'll have with this eSATA controller is getting it plugged into the backplane, because it's tiny. Other than that, it works right, and it works right out of the box.

                      Do NOT expect the same from the Mac version, the 622M, as it requires the computer to be rebooted before it recognizes a device connected to it. Each time you connect something. For that, they charge several times what this controller costs. Go figure.
