BTW, just as a data point, my Areca controller (ARC-1210) has on several
occasions demonstrated it's ability to recover nicely from drive
failures. One of my Maxtor disks has this bad habit of periodically
hanging. Popping the drive out and putting it back in causes the
controller to immediately notice it and begin an automatic background
rebuild (its a RAID5 configuration w/four 500GB disks). The rebuild
takes about three hours to complete (on an unloaded system).
