New Drive Installed

I recently installed a new drive in our ProLiant ML350 G3 with Raid 5, to replace a defective unit. The system did the recovering, etc. properly. Since doing the drive install I notice that sometimes the lights on the three drives are not blinking at exactly the same time. I thought with the way Raid 5 was set up all three drives run as a unit. Is it possible that this is just an illusion caused by the lights on the drives being different brightness? There are no relevant entries in the event logs.

Thank you.
