BTW, if you need real performance and you can live with just 640GB of
storage instead of ~960GB, then a RAID-1+0 configuration would be
ideal. You'd have maximum reliability (because all your data would
be mirrored), but you'd also have considerably higher performance
(because you'd be striping across multiple disks).
Just a thought.
