Ah, I was about to trust RAID5 more than that. So, if you have a RAID5 array and the controller dies, you can't put another controller on to it and continue using it? Another thing I've seen concerning RAID5 is file corruption. How can you corrupt a file on a RAID5 array? What are the chances of corrupting an entire array?
