Well, for a file server like NFS/Samba, you could also consider raid10,f2.
I would think you could get about double the read performance compared to n2 and o2
layouts, and also for individual read transfers on a running system
you would get somthing like double the read performance. 
Write performance could be somewhat slower (0 to 10 %) bot as users
are not waiting for writes to complete, they will probably not notice.
