<http://dict.leo.org/se?lp=ende&p=/Mn4k.&search=not>£70 is not a hell of
a lot. Highpoint offers only drivers up to 4.8 and 5.1 for a RR1520; it
might be discontinued. The RR1640 is more comfortable because it
attracts attention with a painful acoustic signal on hard disk failure.
You can even reinitialise the controller or verify a disk array remote
with a GUI from another machine. This is much for a controller of this
price range. ;-)
