I'm using two HighPoint Ultra 100TX controller (PDC20268) with 2
channels each supporting 4x200GB Maxtor drives. Under 2.6 these
controllers have been quite straight-forward. I do, however, remember
some initial trouble under 2.4 (which drivers to include, etc.) and some
trouble getting the DMA to turn on automatically (hdparm + init solved
that one). Other than that they have behaved exemplary.
(My post of some weeks back where the wrong drive was marked as failed
by mdadm I don't think was due to the controller.)
