I've had exactly the opposite experience.  When I want my storage to
work (which is, well, usually), I use a hardware RAID controller.  Using
software RAID only adds bugs (more software layers to fight with),
slowness (both in actual read/write latency and in consumed CPU time
per storage transaction), and makes it nearly impossible to fix when the
OS gets its metadata out of sorts.
