Other Thoughts:

My last review was pretty negative, where I couldn't find any help or documentation on the website. I finally follow the leads of one of the review and looked into their forum section. Found a firmware update, and updated both controllers. Now I am getting a steady 60 - 70Mb write speed. Disregard the forum thread that says firmware update for raid 50 only. I am using raid 5, and I took a change to see if performance would be better since I was getting topped out at 8Mb write. And sure enough the firmware did fix the major issue.
