    ATTO Technology R680 reviews

    ExpressSAS R680 8-Port External 6 Gb/s SAS/SATA RAID Adapter is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from A pain to install but works fantastic The Bad: Had to install this on an intel Mac Pro with Lion. The drivers it came with not only didn't work but froze the Mac and had the fans running so hard that I was worried the Mac would literally take off! Uninstalled drivers and card but the fan STILL wouldn't shut off. The Good: Tech support was FAST (less than an hour via email) and they had an updated driver on the site. Started over with the new driver and eveything went super smoothly. Driver was fairly easy to configure (it was my first time configuring RAID 5 on a Mac). Anyone with experience will have no issues with it. Tested it by moving a folder with 4.1 gig of data. It took 46.2 seconds..... Awesome!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Needed as replacement for R380 Mac OSX Yosemite didn't support our ExpressSAS r380. ATTO advised to replace with the R680. It works fine with all of our applications.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy install Easy, quick setup. Connected solidly to G-Tech RAID. No-brainer with setup/software. Discovered overheating problem when rendering 45 minute movie. It would terminate connection. Swapped card slots for better air flow over heat sink and it worked as it should.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blazing fast, easy install Replaced an ATTO R380 which was well past its Best Before Date.� Picked up both AVID SAS VideoRaids immediately and got me back up and running.� Fast shipping, reasonable price and excellent communication from B&H.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stepped right in Thunderbolt support was key. Have a R800 Fusion RAID and our R380 cards were a little unreliable so jumped up to the R680, works like it should. Back to editing.
