QNAP 1079 pro/1279

We are an European based company and I've requested information at several companies for our IT situation:
- 2 Mac Pro's, one (mainly) for animations (AE); one for FCP editing
- 1 iMac for editing FCP
- 2 windows computers for project administration
- 1 macbook pro for FCP editing when the pressure is high
- Codec: Apple Pro Res 422
- almost never work simultaneously on one FCP project
- currently have DAS (10 drives x 2 TB)
- will need shared storage 10-16TB; getting tired of copy and searching for projects all the time

Response from one company: use Terrablock 8XS 16 TB (18000 euro, 23500 dollar for full installation (including FC, shared filesystem license, switch, etc)
Other company: use GBlabs 16 TB (19000 euro’s, full installation)
The usual suspects…. But another company advised me, to go for the new QNAP 1079 pro or QNAP 1279. it’s an NAS and not a SAN, but specs are looking OK and price is significant lower (16 TB, 9000 euros full installation)
Is this a no go area for editing? Why? And what are the main disadvantages?

Thanks in advance.
