  Product Profile : Abit ST6-RAID 
 
The ST6-RAID is an 815EP B-step board, supporting Coppermine and Tualatin-based Pentium III and Celeron processors. For more information on the board, visit Abit's website at: http://www.abit.com.tw
Performance: 8/10

As far as 815EP boards are concerned, the board performed on par with what we'd expect. Obviously no match for a 2 GHz Pentium 4 or 1.4 GHz Athlon, but then again, that wouldn't be a fair comparison in the first place!

Stability: 9/10

Aside for the single, seemingly random lockup while installing 3DMark2001, the board performed with excellence.

Quality: 8/10

Abit's BX and 815-series boards have never given us any trouble.

Features: 9/10

Just about everything you could want on a board, from Abit's excellent SoftMenu III, to on-board ATA100 RAID.

Layout: 8/10

With the exception of a poorly placed ATX power connector, and a CD-In connector which may give certain PCI cards some trouble, the board's layout is clean.

Documentation: 7/10

Abit's manual is what we would describe as slightly above average.

Price: 6/10

As far as 815 boards go, the ST6-RAID is near the top of the price bracket. However, you do get more in the way of features, so it's not just empty cost.

Overall Rating: 9/10

Probably the best 815EP board out there, although we find ourlselves rather indifferent to 815 boards at present. Even the best 815 boards.
