My CCTV is more important. I'll travel an leave my home being monitored and I don't want to loose everything.
When I move to my new house I could build a bigger array for media adding one more 1.5TB drive. Build a second array on RAID 5 with 3 drives for the security cameras and leave one hot spare.
The big raid 6 array would be better for bigger vacations when I need more recording time. I'll think about it. I didn't want to do that just because my first option on keeping everything apart, media and CCTV.
I think this is hardcore config
If you switch to MPEG-4 - it would be only 1.12TB per month
