No experience, just a thought.
It is used for big sequential writes and no random reads or writes. In this case I will used the biggest block I can to minimize the I/Os to the disk.
The reason we use small blocks is to minimize the redundant data transferred to memory when you need only one record in the block. When you write or read whole blocks, in big sets, use the block size that will minimize I/O.
