        "I will then go for RAID 10 with the two 15K drives and a RAID 5 array with 5 disks and one hot swap spare."

         

        This is an old post, but performance to dollar, (2) 75GB 15k SAS - ESXi Install (6) 146/300 15k SAS in RAID 1 + 0

        Always works well for me, and when in a Virtual atmosphere, I generally buy refurb drives, and keep two extras, saves money- not much risk.
