X-bit labs has a thorough look at Promise's FastTrak100 TX4 IDE RAID Controller card, so if a 4 channel RAID sound up your alley then go and check it out.
To begin with I would like to say that FastTRAK100 TX4 controller has been available in the market for quite a long time already (if I am not mistaken, it has been out for about a year now).

Firstly, the controller didn't show any "correct" results, and secondly, it didn't work with some mainboards....
