As I said before, unless you're willing to spend some pretty major 
bucks, you're just not going to see that great RAID-5 performance as 
compared to RAID-1+0.  If this is just for archive and not 
production, then the write performance shouldn't matter much.  But 
you've got to make your own decision.
