I have had good experiences with the Promise Ultra100 TX2.
The Promise Ultra133 TX2 should be even better, but I have no personal
experience with it. (Apart from the slightly higher speed, the Ultra133
should be able to handle large disks out of the box, while the Ultra100
needed a firmware update to handle disks larger than 128GiB.)
