While I've not had performance problems with reiser3, I have had RAID  
firmware problems which caused data loss on reiser3.  Rebuilding the  
tree on terabytes of email data takes a long, long time.  Weeks  
longer than restoring from tape.  I have not (yet) had similar RAID  
failures with ext3, so I can not describe my experiences there.
