3Ware, imo.  Reading the reviews of the Promise RAID controllers
around the web, they seem like more trouble than they are worth.

3Ware's controllers come with notification via email Windows and they
are supported on all the live CD Linux kernel's I've tried, as well as
having FreeBSD support.

But in this case, I would profer the Buffalo NAS, just because it is
less likely to be broken by a non-SA.
