I have seen lots of drives go bad too. But don't discount Murphy. You might just have a bad day and a firmware upgrade of your controller resets the raid set. Most people with more then one 3ware card will set it up in JBOD mode and then use it as a software raid5 with a external log.

My experience with the MegaRAIDs has been that the cards do work fine, provided that you do everything exactly the way the card expects - which is sometimes complicated, sometimes difficult, and usually counter-intuitive. ; )
Yup. I have screwed up raid sets before on our servers too.(during testing and with backups).
I just feel that my data would not be safe with the setup that you have provided. They even had bugs in the 3ware raid config which caused corruption in degraded mode. If that happens on your raid0 array or any array you are going to lose data. But I think that the chances of severe damage will grow in this raid0 setup.
