I have used the PERC cards that ship with the medium sized Dell servers and
the Mylex DAC960 cards. Both of them work fine, although the performance
from a small DAC960 was not impressive. I tested them extensively and found
them to be OK.
I've also worked on a Debian machine with a 3ware controller (not sure which
series), it worked fine, but I never had a chance to do a full test run as it
was a live production system before I got there.
