Just to throw in my 2 cents worth... I've used both the 3ware 850x SATA raid card and currently have an Adaptec 2410 SATA raid card. The machines are database servers with fairly large databases (75MM records+) I'm not as deeply technical as many of the others who have responded to this issue, but having done no tuning of any sort, both cards perform about the same. In addition, neither of them has failed or been a problem. Like I said, just my 2 cetns worth.
