Could I just compare it to choosing between a VPS (software Raid) and Dedicated server (Hardware Raid). The answer is always gonna swing to hardware unless there other factors to consider LOL

A hardware RAID has its own processor and memory to
run the RAID application. Its like independent system dedicated to the RAID application

I've seen far too many issues with raid in the past. Use a proper backup system, your accounts will be restored in half the time it takes to get the raid array back up, just from my own experience.

If you can afford you a really good raid cards then you need to purchase N+1 at least, where N is your servers count if one of yours will be gone or/and unavailable to purchase anymore you need to have it on hand.

And if you can't buy good ones I think that software raid is a good deal then.

One mention: never connect SSD drives to cheap RAID cards! Ever!
I'd suddenly noticed that my SSD can get me much more IOPS without 'megaraid' card for example!

Hardware RAID for sure.

I would also recommend using CacheVault, or a BBU at least.
