Thank you both for your insights. :-)
Stan - I assume you mean the Adaptec 6405E:
That looks like a nice card, and Adaptec is a name I respect. I infer
from your posts that to use the product correctly, I should buy matching
HDD's, after checking Adaptec's compatibility report?
Do you have any experience with the Hybrid RAID mode?
Henrique - your arguments regarding software RAID and mixed drives make
sense from a single-point-of-failure viewpoint. Do you consider SATA
drives okay for workstation/SOHO server use, or should I go with SAS?
Does anybody have any comments or recommendations for inexpensive 2- or
4-port SATA3 HBA's (or SATA2 HBA's, or SATA RAID cards used as
HBA's), such as products made by SIIG or Promise?
