Voted!! These definitely come in handy for storing everything. I just wish Laptops started coming with eSATA ports with port multiplying, especially the higher end engineering laptops.

Nothing beats having a good NAS for video production. For longer video projects, different scenes can export to uncompressed formats on the NAS (allowing multiple computers to work on a complex render lengthy video), those parts can then be combined and exported to the final format)

There is almost no performance impact if the NAS can maintain a decent throughput and IOPS.

Save 4K footage as EXRs, or all the rendered frames from a 3D application (mainly Maya). 1 minute of renders can take up to 500 GBs. NAS is a saviour.
