Even with the latest firmware, we still saw a high rate of false 
failures.  Plus these cards have been EOL'd by 3ware, so don't expect 
any support or RMAs.  It's very worth the extra $$ to bump up to 
today's card versions.

I've heard rumors of a PCI-X platform with a complete firmware re-write 
coming soon from 3ware, should be quite nice.
