I posted in a different thread about this last night. I used to use carboys myself and made the switch to these a while back. You could use 2 for a 10 gallon batch easily with plenty of headspace. And you're right - you need bigger than a 5 gallon fermenter for the same size batch.
A bit late to the party here but I think these offer the best bang for the buck. Normally I'll do 6 gallons in each. Absolutely perfect for ten. I never bother to snap down the lids or use a fermentation lock either.
Welcome back to the hobby!
