Why are RAID rebuilds obstacles to data migration

I currently run a system using four 400 GB SATA drives configured with RAID 5. I want to replace all drives with four 750 GB drives. Can I do this by swapping individual drives after each is rebuilt?

The SATA controller is the Nvidia MediaShield and supports RAID 0 1 0+1 5 and JBOD. Tragically your proposed method is not the best way to migrate your data. Remember RAID rebuilds take quite a long time and are a resource-intensive operation. So expect your application to nicely suffocate while this is happening.
