the only adventage of RAID-5 is less "wasted" space than RAID-1. one and 
the only adventage. write performance is terrible on small writes - 
exactly what happens on database usage.

with today sizes of disks more "wasted" space doesn't make much a problem, 
as i don't think your database have hundreds of gigabytes.

did you look how much disks (no matter what RAID or just devices) are 
actually used?!

use systat
