1, 2001) Adaptec ATA RAID 2400a is a four channel ATA100 RAID card with
advanced features such as OCE and RAID5 support. It suports four
channels and transfer rates of 100mpbs per channel.
Aside from its fast speed using cheaper IDE drives vs. SCSI drives, Bitstop likes this card for its ability to add extra drives to expand an existing RAID5 array. (You can’t expand a software-based array like in windows). It has automatic spare fail-over also.
