its nice to get more performance, but that was a bigger problem with older tape drives before lto - as far as i have read.
acutally you should think about compatibility.
some say never above 256 others say not above 64 kb. veam set it to 256k for me by default.
so i would keep it there.
otherwise you have to test each blocksize which performs better for your data and if its compatible with a replacement/recovery tape drive.
