tw-cli? You are probably talking about the 3ware cards then. They
have SAS/SATA/PATA interfaces but I never heard of a SCSI one.
The drivers work fine under linux but performance can be really bad
in some cases so we are avoiding them in favor of the areca ones.

For SCSI cards we've used both Adaptec and LSI and both work fine under
linux although we had to limit the Adaptec speed a couple of times since
bugs in the firmware caused problems with an external RAID box.
