RAID 5 vs RAID 6

I'm getting tired of people advocating RAID 5 vs. RAID 6. They go on like oh, in a RAID 5 a bit error URE will get you one day! We spent 10,000s dollars sending our RAID5s to OnTrack. Yes, that's tens of thousands of Uncle Sam Dollars.

Single bit error in a RAID 5 is much cheaper to recover from than a RAID 6 controller failure or an operator accidentally deleting the array. Ever asked for a quote on RAID 6 recovery?
