Description

Initially SATA was designed as an internal or inside-the-box interface technology, bringing improved performance and new features to internal PC or consumer storage. Creative designers quickly realized the innovative interface could reliably be expanded outside the PC, bringing the same performance and features to external storage needs instead of relying on USB or 1394 interfaces.

Rocket Raid for a MacPro Tower. Downloaded latest raid software, driver, firmware could not be located for Mac. Loaded driver and raid software-crashed computer. Contacted support-no solution. Removed driver and raid software & cleaned up machine with TechTool. Reloaded latest software and driver--crashed machine on startup twice, then started ok. tried a restart, crashed machine on shutdown.

I returned the product--standing policy, if a new product can t provide up-to-date software for Mac OS it goes back.

This company is unable to support their products.
If you need support forget it.

I ve been dealing with them for over a year (if you can call a one way conversation "dealing with").

Web support is a laugh.
Phone support is non-existent.

Basically if you need help you will not get any.

I ll make it brief - I was looking for a replacement for my two Sonnet E2p cards since I upgraded to a 64-bit version of Snow Leopard and the Sonnet E2Ps are not supported in that configuration. A chat with my local MAC guru + a google search later I decided to try this card. It was priced lower than the Sonnet E4P and was in stock at my local FRYS. I got it home happily, plugged it into my MAC Pro and connected the external case I had where I had 8 drivers softraided via OSX 10.5.8 into 2 RAID0 disks.

The OS booted but No Drives Mounted.

I ran disk utility and saw that even though the card and the drives were recognized the RAIDs appeared to be bad.
I knew this to be false so I booted back into 10.5.8 (from 10.6.2) and copied all data to single drives, then rebooted in 10.6.2, deleted the old raids, created new ones.

Immediately after the raid was created the system went into kernel panic and not matter how many times I rebooted the system kept kernel panicking either immediately or a short time after the boot.

For a card that is "natively supported by OS 10.6.2" this really sucks.
I am returning it tonight and getting the E4P - it may cost more but I hear it actually works (what a concept.)

BTW the support was horrible as well - I tried contacting them and they kept telling me that the card works natively in OS X 10.6.2 because it shows up in the system profiler. Really? is that the only test these guys go through to make sure that their hardware works? Wow!
