Are you really going to use more than 100mbit of traffic?  Surely the IO 
of the raid 5 will be the bottleneck - rather than your network?  Unless 
HD records at higher than 12MB a sec which seems unlikely to me.

Raid 0 will improve write speeds which is available on FreeNas  - but 
then no redundancy.
