For those that have set up RAID 0 or other arrays for your library, what block size did you define? I would guess for most of us we have relative large files (20MB or larger) plus some video files that could be larger. So did you set up your RAID with 128K size blocks?

I've always kept it at 128 (and I do 3D animations with video encoding on my workstation). Depending on OS, I've read that some people have encountered problems with other sizes.
