Yup. Although when used with 150 MB/s drives it's a very reliable
card,and when equipped with a battery backup unit (so you can use the
write cache) it gives acceptable RAID 5 performance, better than a lot
of modern consumer-grade RAID devices. It'll be left behind by any
modern enterprise-grade RAID card, though, and on a decent machine
software RAID 5 may well be faster.
