NAS's have the convenience of being cheap, small, and good for simple uses.

Dedicated storage servers are usually much faster, and can sometimes be a bit more expensive than off the shelves NAS's, but are much faster than a NAS for more intensive operations.

For your uses, I'd just use a NAS.

I usually recommend Qnap or Synology for Nas's.
