Both are now owned by Avago.  (Not sure when that happened, last I
looked LSI was its own company.)

I find the 3ware CLI a little clunky but easy to understand.  I find the
LSI CLIs (both MegaCLI and storcli) incredibly confusing, and the GUI
interface is not intuitive (and I think doesn't expose all the
information about the controller; the Nagios LSI plugin found errors
that I could find no trace of in the GUI).

Agreed; I'll share some of my experiences in another post.
