Almost 3 month. CentOS 6.3. Production. I did not hear of any
problems. So it so far looks better than any other stuff we have had
before. Like HW-Raid5 and SW-Raid6 of different kinds.

We have/had Thumpers with a strange bug, probably combination of
crappy HW and crappy driver where the network interface suddenly would
stop after many many bits through it. ifconfig down; ifconfig up cured
it temporary. So you may want to invest in a network card with a
better chipset than the one that is builtin.
