don't know about the promise, but:

the 3ware is a lovely cheap (!) solution if you want a big array. it
feels (no real tests done) dead slow compared to, albeit smaller, MYLEX
arrays I've build, though.

(I had a hell of a time installing my last 3ware, turns out I had 2 bad
RAM and a faulty 3ware card, with everything replaced it's working fine
in debian-woody)
