Nice website and generally good reportage.
WRT this Highpoint review though:
CPU utilization is important when comparing RAID controllers, and should be reported.
If the CPU is running at 50% to get that nearly 600MB/s sequential read then this really isn't much of a RAID controller - and also not hardware RAID. If the CPU is running at a few percent then the card looks very good.
A measure of latency would be very valuable too: especially latency versus number of disks in the array.
