What disadvantages were you referring to with hardware raid?
In some cases you need to replace failed hardware with the same model,
which might be difficult to do. MD raid is very hardware agnostic. Unless
you buy high end gear you may end up using effectively proprietary
software raid. The two main advantages of hardware raid are that it can
be shared with Windows and there may be less traffic on your bus.
