3ware cards have worked fantastically for me... until I tried using them
with the Tyan S5360-1U Motherboard. I've not been able to boot any
distro of FreeBSD 5.x or 6.x with this board and the 3ware 95x series or
8x series SATA cards.
However, other then that 1 board incompatibility, they've worked like a
champ for me for years.
