Oh, they are rock solid, as long as you don't use them. I have one in my
home machine and it's been more or less trouble free. The machines at the
office no longer have any adaptec controllers as they were currupting
filesystems left, right and center. For some strange reason they stopped
doing that when we replaced the 2940's with BusLogic controllers.
Incidentally, my new machine has a Symbios 53c875...
