Yes, we have numerous boxes deployed with various 3ware cards including 
that one.  All our critical servers running FreeBSD, Linux and Win32 use 
these cards.

It works VERY well for us in both respects on RELENG_4 and RELENG_5.

One note, the download info for their web management program 
( implies its only available for 
the 8000 series card which is false, as it is in fact designed to work with 
the 7xxx and 8xxx cards.

Although I havent run into disk compatibility issues, some people have 
issues with particular firmwares on certain Maxtor drives.  I run mostly 
with Segate drives right now, but in the past have run Maxtor, quantum and 
Fujitsu, all without problems. YMMV
