I've been testing my $30 SiI3114-based "RAID" card, and it blows. Seriously, for anything other than JBOD the system crawls (lots lower than IDE on the same box), but I suspect my 2 GHz Celeron is not helping the card very much. Resynch of a 3x 500 Gig RAID 5 array takes over 12 hours, hardware or Windows Server 2003 "soft" RAID...
JBOD runs very nicely though.
