SATA Host Adapter Recommendation

I have a Highpoint 4-port PCI-E 4x card in a server that has worked well
for a few years. It's a bit pricey, but I've had no problems with it.
Recently, I've gotten 3 Rosewill RC-218 cards because they're much
cheaper and I don't need the RAID functionality on other cards. I'm
building servers with them now, but FreeBSD recognizes the disks
attached to them fine (so long as your on >= 8.2 and you add
hw.hptrr.attach_generic=0 in /boot/loader.conf). I haven't tried
hot-swapping any drives yet, but I'm assuming since it's SATA it should
work fine. I should probably verify that soon.
