    "The controller can connect with up to four PCI-Express busses" ??

    actually it's a 4x PCI-Express bus.

    more typo

    "RocketRAID 2644x44 controller is available now" (should be 2644x4)

    Where did the price come from? Other web site do not list the price, and no info is available on the manufacturer's web site on a quick search.

    avoid HighPoint

    Their mac support sucks. When 10.6 comes out, don't be surprised if they want you to buy a newer card instead of providing updated drivers... Happened at the 10.5 changeover form 10.4 with cards that were not that old.
