The one I was referring to wasn't an "X" model. :) I've got it installed 
on a box that doesn't have alot of disk activity, so that's probably why I 
have'nt noticed. :) I bought it just for fault tolerance, and I don't care 
much about software raids.

So, if the original poster, like me, wants fault tolerance at a nice price 
rather than performance, I can recommend this: MegaRAID SATA 150-4 (or -6 
for 6 ports). 

Dunno about prices in Australia tho'. :)
