5 out of 5 eggsGood RAID card

Pros: I have 4 machines with 3ware cards in them, and i've never had any problems with any of them. This one was for a mail server, and it works great. I have a pair of western digital 320G SATA2 (3Gbs) attached in a RAID1. The performance is good and the works just like all the other ones I have used.

Cons: When I got it, the machine wouldnt soft boot with it installed and a drive connected to port 0 and 1. I went to the 3ware website and got the lastest firmware and it fixed the problem. Since then its been working perfectly.

Other Thoughts: I really like 3wares cards. I run them all in linux. I was using Redhat and slackware, but recently have migrated them all to gentoo. The setup util they give doesnt have an init script for gentoo, but they are floating around out there on the net.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works great, getting 10,000 I/Os per second with a 256K cluster on three 250G HHDs in a stripe array.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Works in your PCI Express 16 slot for your video card. Use a pci video card if you don't have dual PCI-E 16's

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Far faster than integrated or software raid 5 - getting 250+ mb/s in a RAID 50, with 3% CPU usage (HDTach). Software easy to use and understand. Worked flawlessly right from the start.

Cons: It needs a pretty specific motherboard if you want to use it with an AMD X2, not many have a big enough PCIE bandwidth.

Other Thoughts: The ASRock 939 board is the only one I could find that has a true 4x PCI-E slot. Other boards just allocate the 4x slot a single channel.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Worked straight from the box. Linux kernel 2.15 and up come with the drivers included (3w.9xxx). Getting around 135 MB/sec read with 4 250GB drives in Raid 5.

Clear manual, great online support.

Cons: Battery Backup unit is expensive. Not all that much faster than a software raid 5.

Other Thoughts: Their online support gave me answers within one day. I had trouble seeing the 3ware BIOS at boot up. Support told me to turn on mobo raid so that it would enumerate all the devices and it worked.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing RAID card

Pros: 3ware is your choice if you want the best RAID card. It has great linux support. It only took a couple minutes to set up and configure the raid array. It has multiple interfaces, (bootup, command line, and web). And of course, its blazingly fast.

Cons: The card is pretty expensive. Supports an attachable battery backup but it's over $100.

Other Thoughts: Software-based RAID 5 has always scared me. If I have a hard drive go bad, I think I'll definately be happy I spent the money on this card.
