I've been using mine (9550sx 4 port) for about 2 months now, and it's
been great. I've got two arrays on it right now, one raid1 and one
raid0, both running very happily. The default centos 3ware drivers
don't work with it yet. I'm not sure if this changes in update 3 (due
soon) or not. Rebuilding the 3ware drivers for centos are trivial, and
3ware is hosting community provided driver disks and such on their
site. Basically for the money, I'm quite happy with it.
