Well I stopped using raid couple of years ago. Seems they would work for a while then take a lunch break and never return to work. I just use the raid controllers like they are a regular SATA controller. Have 6 drives working with no problems to date.
I to have noticed that SATA drives are set to 1.5 G instead of 3 G straight from the factory. Just remove the jumper and you get 3 G. Would be nice for the manufacture to indicate this on the box thought I will admit that it is printed on the drive on how to set it. Was a while before I noticed this little tidbit. You do not have to remove the drives from your system, just take a small paper clip bend part of it straight and form a small hook at the end of straight portion. Works like a charm to remove the jumper (they are very small and hard to remove otherwise).
