Heck, here's two execellent reasons to go with Qlogic... In the mean time I
have put my hands on a 2940UWD so I'll benchmark both cards and
share the results sometime after I receive the Qlogic.

Good question... I just handed my request to the purchasing dept. and
they told me they found it locally here in Montreal (Quebec) - which is
not of big help for most of you anyway!
Thanks for the info.
