Thanks for pointing out that adaptec card is a SW RAID. Its hard to know which are or are not true Hardware RAID cards.

I am not sue I understand the RAID-0. I have a RAID-0 on my PC for video editing performance. But on the NAS are you recommending RAID-0 for video streaming performance?

On the Dell PERC 5i, I thought I read somewhere they have compatibility issues with Intel chipsets and work best on Nvidia chipsets.

My original approach was going to be JBOD but then I thought about what a pain it would be to repopulate the backup drive should any drive fail. That is why I was leaning towards RAID5. I also don't necessarily have the same size drives in this RAID which is why RAID10 wouldn't work for me.

Thanks!
