For us RAID 5 is perfect. All we have on our main RAID volume is the raw footage that is double backed up as soon as it comes in the building. Then every night we back up the project file volume to 10 TB Iron Wolf's. Drives have been a major workhorse over the years and I have had two failures in 19 years. Backups saved the day.

So since we went with 4 TB drives with only 8 bays we needed the extra space and our backups will give us the peace of mind if the RAID fails.

I'd almost go RAID 0 just for space sake as long as we have solid backup procedures.

Also we auto save our projects to our internal drives so they are not on the NAS in case of failure....at least we have the project files.
