Opinions vary on that point.

If the thing you have to replace is the raid controller itself, and
if you've had it deployed for enough years (or, these days months:-)
so the model you used is no longer available, it can sometimes get
worrisome trying to get your bits back off the drives.

This got hammered out on Slashdot recently.
