External RAID 5 recommendations

I've just about had it with one of our RAID systems. It's an Enhance Technologies S8MS rackmount SAS RAID. It's worked perfectly for the last 3 years and now it's eating drives. Just came back from service and it just failed again. The service guys there said they tested it and it passed after the replaced the backplane. It has all new drives in it also. We've got 2 others and they run fine (they do eat a drive every couple of months though). Anyway, what are you guys using? Can you recommend any other system? On all 3 of our systems we're using RocketRaid 3522 cards and I'd like to not have to buy another controller. I've had it ...waiting 8 hours to rebuild the array every couple of days. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
