for me its not about the filesystem but more about the backup.
My recordings are on 2x1TB storage groups running ext4. Its not raid but 
when one drive fails I only loose half the recordings.
Things I want to keep are off loaded to the video storage on a raid6 NAS 
(ext3) with anything else thats digitally important.
I've have an external HDDs (USB Maxtor 1TB, ext3) but find that its only 
useful for moving data off site or temporary backup when rebuilding a 
eSATA disks are better (faster) but if you don't need the portability 
the same money will buy you 2 SATA and which you can easily raid on most 
modern platforms.
