I had about 14T spinning across several 8 port 3ware cards using
180-200gig HDs a few gigs back. out of 14 or so cards, we had one that
was bad, the rest worked great.  They would occasionally kick out a good
disk and mark it as bad, but the proper sequence of remove drive from
array, pull drive from canister, re-insert, re-enable, would bring it
back online.  You could manage them all either over a web interface or a
CLI, they would send out mail for failures, etc.  I never did any real
performance testing on them, they were all just used for storing images
over NFS.  We were running Linux and using ext3 and xfs on RAID 5.
