This is a low-budget suggestion:
I have good experiences with RocketRAID 1520 and 1640. I'm running a
1640 with three SATA drives since one year without problems; it's just a
little bit slow. Highpoint offers binary FreeBSD drivers for these
controllers, but I think that people don't like this kind of support
because Highpoint neglects it for older models and this dependency might
be dangerous in future. Keep in mind: you'll get what you pay for.
