I've got a 3Ware ​9650SE-8LPML SATA RAID controller that's been a bit troublesome. It was working fine but died on a scheduled reboot, in such a way that even the BIOS wouldn't POST! 3Ware were good about replacing it, but the replacement they sent was DOA, the second one worked ok. I still find reboots on this machine very stressful!

And why do makers of RAID cards make it so hard to update firmware? They persist in requiring DOS, Java or even Windows, I almost always have to resort to some unsupported hack in order to get updates done on Linux.
