It seems like I read somewhere that RAID 5 begins to really take a beating when you get in to higher numbers of drives due to a 2TB limitation in the algorithm. All of the high-end arrays I've looked at use a different algorithm for providing multiple drive failure tolerance and the speed actually improves (supposedly) with higher numbers of drives.

I've done SATA RAID 5 on 3ware. As Borat would say, "is very nice!"
That was first gen sata so I wasn't very impressed with performance vs.
U320 SAN storage but benchmarks I've been seeing from co-workers of
their current-gen SATA arrays is actually spanking my U320 SAN in a
number of areas.
