Alternatives to Dell storage?

So, does anyone want to recommend alternatives to the MD1000 for 3.5" 
SAS/SATA storage? I've looked at HP's offering but it appears to have a 
lower drive count.

Obviously direct LSI replacements for the prior generations of PERC are 
available, as well as the Arecas that some people seem to like. Any 
other suggestions on the controller front for RAID5/6 connecting to 
SAS/SATA enclosures?

The reasons for this question should be obvious. :^)
