I have not been warned, and I have a SCSI internal ZIP drive on a  2940U2W PCI 
card along with a PLEXTOR CDrom drive and 2 HP DAT drives for two years 
without problems (except the recent versions of aic7xxx drivers that do not
work at all ;-)

I use it intensively as I do with the DAT drives. It works well, with an
acceptable speed (~40MB/s using hdparm read test).
