This desktop was compared with 5 others p196 in C Shopper issue April 03. All six desktops were of similar price...£1410 inc.(within £2 of this). Browsing their specs I was taken aback to see the Hi-G was raid zero. The reviewer seemed not to notice,- the only indication of raid was in the sentence "The Hi-Grade Ultis has an Intel 2.8GHz processor while a striped 2x80Gb hard disk array gives the biggest capacity of the PC's on test" in the config summary. This is a one horse race, I thought. The line-up with proc'r were Evesham 2700, HI-Grade 2.8, Mesh 2.8, Polar 2400, Systemax 3.0, Aries 2700. Stars awarded (in order) were 3,4,4,2,4,3. More objective were the positions/6 in the five benchmarks... Hi-Grade was 3,3,3,5,5. This shattered my idea that raid zero near doubled the speed, and that perhaps I should have given more attention to that historic hyperOs thread? Or 'striped' was a slip?
I have a Hi grade notebook and it is a got bit of kit and the back up that goes with it is very good as well.I bought it direct from higrade picked it up when they said it would be ready and when it went wrong ,accident, they collected and returned as promised ,as the cuprinol advert says "just as it says on the tin".
