Package and Contents
Before we get into the benchmarks let's have a squiz at the packaging as well as the card. Highpoint uses its new white, blue and red box packaging for all their controller cards to come from their factory. On the front you get a small picture as well as some basic info on what the controller card feature set is.
On the back you get a bit more detailed info as well as some sale info on the card itself. Highpoint has always given buyers detailed info on their controller cards from the box so you know what you are getting and what to expect - no tricky surprises.
Inside the box the first thing you get is the RocketRAID 2130 user manual. This is extremely detailed for a controller card manual. All the settings from the jumpers, BIOS and admin settings as well as Windows install software are included within the many pages.
Rather than floppy disks, a single CD with all the Windows drivers and software are included. A boot option is also included to make Windows XP or Windows 2000 installation diskettes. You can also use the RocketRAID 2310 with Linux, FreeBSD and Mac OS X.
Highpoint includes its own metre long SATA data cables which they have been producing since they started releasing their controller cards. There are 4 in total, enough for the 4 ports that the card supports.
Last on the package list is a half height PCI riser bracket for use in small form factor server cases like 1U or 2U chassis.
