HighPoint RocketStor 6661A-NVMe overview

  • 1Description

Connect additional Thunderbolt 3 peripherals and NVMe M.2 RAID storage to your compatible Windows or Mac system using the RocketStor 6661A-NVMe Thunderbolt 3 to NVMe RAID Adapter from HighPoint. This adapter is equipped with two Thunderbolt 3 ports, which provide bi-directional speeds of 40 Gb/s. While one port is used to interface with your host system, the other can be used to daisy-chain up to six devices together, including dual 4K displays or a single 5K display, thanks to support for DisplayPort 1.2. Thunderbolt 3 also supports 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C and provides 15W of power to compatible devices for charging.

In addition to the Thunderbolt 3 ports, the RocketStor 6661A-NVMe has four NVMe M.2 ports, each of which supports one SSD. Overall, up to 8TB of storage is supported, or 2TB per port, along with data transfer speeds of 2800 MB/s and RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10 configurations. Each RAID configuration provides speed, redundancy, or a combination of both, and for those who do not need the benefits of a RAID, single drive configurations are also available.

HighPoint's RocketStor 6661A-NVMe Thunderbolt 3 to NVMe RAID Adapter is compatible with Thunderbolt 2 devices, as well as USB 3.1 Gen 2 (USB 3.1). Please be aware that any daisy-chain connections will terminate if a peripheral or device is connected via USB Type-C. Included is a Thunderbolt 3 cable, a 60W / 100-240 VAC external power supply, and a power cord. Protection is provided by a limited 1-year parts & labor warranty.

General Features

Compact and Portable NVMe RAID Storage for Thunderbolt 3
The RocketStor 6661A-NVMe allows you to add NVMe RAID storage to most Thunderbolt 3 Windows platforms. Each RocketStor 6661A-NVMe solution supports up to four M.2 SSDs in RAID 0, 1, 5, 10 and single-drive configurations, and can deliver up to 2800 MB/s of transfer performance, which is well-suited for professional media applications that require maximum sustained read and write speeds.
Designed for Thunderbolt 3 Windows and Mac Systems
Like other HighPoint Thunderbolt 3 I/O solutions, the RocketStor 6661A-NVMe was designed with simplicity and ease of use in mind. The slim enclosure includes a pre-installed NVMe RAID controller, which can be quickly accessed via quick-release thumbscrews. The RAID controller supports up to four M.2 SSDs and 8TB of storage. SSDs can be added via a user-friendly installation.
Quadruples NVMe Storage Capacity
Unlike most NVMe solutions, which tie a single SSD to a PCIe module, the RS6661A-NVMe supports up to four individual M.2 SSDs and up to 8TB of total storage. Each SSD can be configured to operate independently or as part of a RAID 0, 1, 5, or 10 array. The RocketStor 6661A-NVMe has been qualified with a wide range of NVMe SSD's, including Samsung's 2TB 960 Pro Series.
HighPoint NVMe Manager with Integrated TRIM & SMART Monitoring
The RocketStor 6661A-NVMe includes HighPoint's NVMe Manager interface, which allows users of most experience levels to quickly configure the M.2 SSDs into RAID arrays or as stand-alone drives. TRIM support promotes the longevity and endurance of each SSD, while SMART monitoring allows customers to keep close tabs on the physical attributes of each device, including temperature readings, total bytes written, and disk usage values, plus essential tools for planning, configuring, and maintaining mission critical SSD storage. Quick Configuration menus allow new users to get everything up and running with a few simple clicks. In depth, Advanced Options allow experienced professionals to fine tune SSD module configurations for specific applications.

    HighPoint RocketStor 6661A-NVMe reviews

    RocketStor 6661A-NVMe Thunderbolt 3 to NVMe RAID Adapter is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Versatile NVMe Storage I noticed that this product is just the combination of an SSD7101A-1 RAID card and the RocketStor 6661A expansion dock, in a single package. I was able to create my own unit, as I already own the SSD7101A-1 (love it), and had recently purchased the RS6661A for a separate video project. It's hard to tell from most of the pictures provided by the maker, but this thing is genuinely small, and is actually portable rather than "mostly portable", as in, having to pack everything in a separate box. You only need the small power adapter, TB3 cable and the "chassis" as HighPoint calls it (a few pounds at most and 2x10x6 inches). This combo is also really fast for a Thunderbolt 3 drive. When RAIDing 4 NVMe SSDs together I was able to reach over 2800 MB/s on a Windows system with a Thunderbolt 3 connection (4x Samsung 970 EVO). That is higher than the prebuilt TB3 to NVMe drives you can get at the moment, and a lot less expensive. I did not have any issues configuring it for use with a Mac System either. You can setup the drive as ExFat and share it with both platforms. It's the fastest portable storage I've have ever owned. I am going to buy another SSD7101-A for my workstation (PC), as I want to make this a permanent storage option. I initially wanted to try this configuration out so just to see how fast it could actually perform on a TB3 port. 2800 vs 13000 may seem slow (vs. using it the SSD7101A-1 with a workstation PC), but it's extremely fast for anything connected via Thunderbolt. It is also the only option out there if you need more than 1 or 2 NVMe SSD's. Nothing else can currently support 4 SSD's. It's based on the SSD7101A-1 so you can mix and match NVMe SSD's. You do not have to commit to one brand/model and are free to upgrade performance/capacity in the future. The rate at which NVMe drives are evolving, you will quickly outgrow any prebuilt solution currently on the market, so something like this product is a must for serious users/pros.
