Anyway, I got myself a 8-port Highpoint, unfortunately it's only 1.5Mbit/s (SATA and not SATA II), but at least it was priced half of what the Adaptec costed.

Might I ask what you paid for it? I myself had decided to go with
either 9650SE-4LPML (~ 300 €) or 9650SE-8LPML (~450 €) (data sheet here: But after checking
prices, I'm not sure if I shouldn't also go with the HighPoint RocketRAID
2320, given that this 8 port card costs approx. half of the AMCC/3ware one.


I paid just below €200 for it, but I can't say yet how it is, I'm about to install it this weekend..
