All of my research on the topic certainly agrees with that assessment.
Basically, I have found:

- If you pay less than about US$1000 for your card, you are getting
"fakeraid" (that is, software RAID implemented in firmware)
- With disks being so cheap today, you are hard pressed to justify using
anything other than RAID1
- The software RAID in the kernel is much more uniform, in that you can
manage disparate hardware in exactly the same way
