NO - NAS - Network Attached Storage - So you attach over network -( not sata ) Which will be 1Gig = MAX 100MBs

To slow to pull media off if your trying to get best speeds. Fine maybe depending on unit to pull a single Prores stream. But come render time you want to feed your machine the media as fast as possible.

You have an old computer your going to put all your source media on. So when that dies as it's old... what are you gong to do ?

You could just get a 4bay Esata raid for media. Raid5 and make sure you have a backup of all media - maybe on the NAS you intend to build as a failover? Which would go direct into this
The way raids connect can vary from Thunderbolt / FW800 / Esata / SAS / Fibre depends on the box you buy. And make sure if in a raid you use the right kind of hard drives for Raids! And don't mix different drives - So no old disk plus a few new that ain't the same.
