Is there an optimal block size for USP and/or 9980V?  I know that there are issues with very small block sizes, but there must also be an upper limit where increasing the block size serves no purpose.

Does anyone have any opinions?  The background to my question relates to getting the best out of either striped or concatenated volumes on SFW with SQL Server; lots of options to be taken but which will be most optimal; a lot of it depends on what the array likes and dislikes.
