It does not astonish me that you get 5 MB/s on a RAID-5 config, although if you
used SCSI and/or a real HW RAID-5 controller with significant cache (ie, 64+ MB)
that would help the performance by quite a bit.
Use RAID-5 for read-only or read-mostly situations and you'll be better off; use
RAID-10 for write-heavy filesystems instead.
