It depends on your priorities.  If you are after sheer transfer speed a
smaller stripe size is best because a single transaction is likely to be
spread over multiple disks which then deliver the data in parallel.

On the other hand, if your priority is not the transfer speed of a
single transaction but, instead, the ability to process multiple
transactions in parallel without too much congestion a bigger stripe
size is preferred.

My recommendation for moderately to heavily used file servers with
multiple clients is therefore to use a bigger stripe size.  This also
goes for web servers and DB servers as they are likely to cause multiple
parallel disk transactions as well.
