The best? Buy a brand product and you will be fine. As with most professional stuff there is no 'best' form a certain level on, they all do their job very well. Choices are made by interoperability and compatibility (when you need to migrate your RAID to a new controller).

There are not many adapters on the market, the most common is the LSI MegaRAID SAS 9260-4I - this a server SAS raid controller for up to 4 disks. (I think only LSI makes internal SAS adapters nowadays, and the Intel one's may be LSI OEMs as well)

But this would be a waste of money - since you only want to connect one disk of course.
