Opinions please on the 3ware PCI IDE Raid card?

This is a PCI card with IDE adapters.  You connect IDE
drives to it and it runs RAID.  I think you can
connect 4 IDE drives per 3ware card.  I've been told
that these cards can outperform SCSI.

Bonus question:  Is there a way to build a "cage" of
IDE drives connected to this 3ware card that shows a
red light on the front for a crashed drive and a green
light for an OK drive?
