In Europe the easiest to get card is propably Intel sasuc8i, which is ~130€ in most German web stores.

comment FreeBSD ZFS RAID-Z2 performance issues
The thing is, the idle timer "issue" is still basically imaginary, because there seems to be no data to indicate that it would cause the drives to fail prematurely.

comment FreeBSD ZFS RAID-Z2 performance issues
Don't know about FreeBSD, but I've been using 1,5TB WD Green EARS 4k sector drives with ZFS on OpenSolaris for about 9 months without problems. 6 drives in raidz2 has been enough to saturate gigabyte network.
