SATA Comparisons

Slashdot linked to a SATA comparison. These are higher priced and higher performance cards, but it's good to know what's out there and available. Man, technology has come a long way... their highest recommended card, the Areca ARC-1120, has it's own onboard http server to let you monitor your hard drives.... wow. This card also supports RAID6 (RAID5 + another parity drive and the ability to withstand two simultanious drive failures if I read it right). Something to think about for the next incarnation of the server. Of course, I think that the $700 US cost for this might make it a bit price prohibitive for me :)

If you don't think this should be a problem, feel free to contibute via the paypal link though!
