I have a 5 disk RAID 5 array of older 160GB drives for photos and video.
Haven't gone that route for TV because I've had more problems with FS
corruption taking down an entire partition than hard drive failures at this
point.  I like the multi-mounts for TV.  I use RAID 5 for the photos because
they're far more valuable to me.
