also hardware raid6 is very common today but in entry level storages you
can find only software raid6 and the performances are terrible.

in other words don't trust so much the entry level storages of many vendors.

to test if your storage is good or not you can use simply compare the
IOPS of the formulas with real results ...and many times you can find
that numbers are very different.
