[CentOS] Calling All FS Fanatics

Now that I've been enlightened to the terrible write performance of ext3 on my 
new 3Ware RAID 5 array, I'm stuck choosing an alternative filesystem. I 
benchmarked XFS, JFS, ReiserFS and ext3 and they came back in that order from 
best to worst performer.

I'm leaning towards XFS because of performance and because centosplus makes 
kernel modules available for the stock kernel.

How's the reliability of XFS? It's certainly been around long enough.

Anyone care to sway me one way or another?
