Package and Contents
With all our reviews we like to start off with the box and what you get. It's always nice to know what you get along with the product - after all, if you don't get what you need from the start, it's hard to setup a good system. The box that Highpoint slaps the RocketRAID 2322 in is the white, blue and red box that denotes its server/workstation products, as this is aimed more at the workstation user, but desktop users can benefit from this product, too. The front has a picture of the card as well as the model number.
The back of the box contains a lot of information on the card, a detailed layout drawing with labelling of the features and circuits as well as a full spec list. Highpoint always go the extra mile so you know what you get before you buy it and we like that.
The documentation and software are pretty simple. There is a single user manual with all the features, BIOS settings and specifications of the card to get you up and running. The CD contains drivers for Windows 2000, 2003, XP, XP64 and Linux distributions to get you fully set, so there are no downloads from their website required.
Highpoint have included some nifty cables. At one end is a large Min SAS connector that routes four SATA channels through it. At the other end of the cables there are four e.SATA plugs. The RocketRAID 2322 supports up to 8 e.SATA devices, so there are two sets of cables included. If you are going to use one of the Highpoint X4 or X8 external enclosures, you can also get a Mini SAS to SATA cable pair with SATA ports at the end rather than e.SATA connectors. The e.SATA variant cables we were supplied with measured one metre in length.
