5 out of 5 eggsJust what it is supposed to do

Pros: This thing is amazing. It does what it is supposed to and will therefore keep my system safe, stable, and running. I am only running it in raid 1 but it works fine for that. I am confident the other options are also fully functional.

Cons: I did a test and pulled the power from one of my drives and for some reason the system froze. Although once I hard booted it, the OS came up again off the other drive and the rebuild completed within 20 minutes.

Other Thoughts: Just what it is supposed to do, what else would you expect from 3ware.

5 out of 5 eggsa reliable and compatible wonder

Pros: This card doest exactly what is says it's going to do - manage a RAID without involving (and thus - slowing down) the OS. The management tools from 3ware are good, many Linux distros support this card, etc. etc. etc... but most importantly - the card does it's job well (for 3+ years in my case)

Cons: not SATA

5 out of 5 eggsDependable

Pros: Dependable, good functionality, hardware RAID. Card is Linux Supported. Setup and use is straight-forward.

Cons: A little expensive.

Other Thoughts: Great for turning an old PC into a data server. This is used on an old PII Linux platform running a SAMBA server for research and data-acquisition storage. Extremely dependable. The rudundancy of RAID 5 provides piece of mind. Worth the investment if your data is important.

5 out of 5 eggsWorry Free....

Pros: Running (4) 200GB drives in RAID5 for months, haven't had any issues with the card. Drive failed and I was notified via email at work. This card is worth every penney.

Cons: Only supports 4 drives.

5 out of 5 eggsRaid 5 and rockin

Pros: Seemless install.
Works!

Cons: Pricey in comparison to the cheap contollers (but you do get what you pay for)

Other Thoughts: Original contoller (different brand) proved to be useless. Was setup as raid 0 but found out after the fact it was not writing to the second disk. Disk 1 failed and I was left restoring the data from my week old backup.
Second contoller (yet another cheapo brand) did not let me write large files to disk. Small files worked OK (strange but true) This thing works!

5 out of 5 eggsRAID Tastic!

Pros: This is an excellently stable and compatible RAID controller. Runs right out of the box with Linux 2.4, 2.5, 2.6 and newer, without any extra work.

Cons: None that I've encountered. This product meets all expectations.

Other Thoughts: It is backwards compatible with regular old 32-bit PCI. Havn't had a chance to test it on a system with PCI express.

5 out of 5 eggsQuality RAID Card for Linux

Pros: Recognizes SME 6.01-01 (e-Smith) server right out of the box. No driver install needed. This is the card for your Linux needs. So easy!

Cons: Expensive, but worth every penny.

Other Thoughts: After several weeks of trying to do Linux RAID with a 100TX2, I spent the $$ for this card. Couldn't be happier. Tested "hot spare" rebuild - works perfectly. The 3DM web based RAID manager for Linux is a total dream. This card rocks!

5 out of 5 eggsOnly way to go for SATA raid

Comments: The price tag tells you almost everything you need to know. If you aren't paying for hardware RAID you are getting software RAID. If you want that you can provide it without buying in to some proprietary scheme unsupported by your OS.

Linux support is excellent as others have mentioned and install is a breeze on fedora core. (odd i had the same experience with the same hard drives, 5 of them died on me.)

Pay for a real raid controller, and buy a quality disk. Start with one of these controllers :)
