sanity check: is 9211-8i, on 8.3, with IT firmware still "the one"

We're about to invest heavily in a new ZFS infrastructure, and our plans 
are to:

- wait for 8.3, with the updated 6gbps mps driver

- Install and use LSI 9211-8i cards with newest "IT" firmware

This appears to be the de facto standard for ZFS HBAs ...

Is there any reason to consider other cards/vendors ?

Are these indeed considered solid (provided I use the new mps in 8.3) ?
