Can you clarify "can't control how the drives will be put to use"? I use hardware RAID all the time, and I can control exactly how my drives will be used.

He means that if you are using hardware RAID it actually sees the two drives as a single drive. You can't partition some of the drive as RAID 1, some as RAID 0, and some as just a standard partition. Also, you can't move them to a machine with a different RAID controller usually and still read them.
