the write speed to the NAS with 6Gb/s HDD's is limited by the 1Gb network in my case anyway.

This is only correct as long as you are writing small amounts, so the disk's cache has a chance to do its job.

When writing amounts that don't fit in the disk's cache (> 256 MB), you are limited to the disk's native speed. As long as the data fit into a single, empty, cylinder, you might (on a large, fast, disk) be able to max out the disk interface at 6 Gb/s. If the R/W head must move to a different cylinder (or you must skip used blocks in a cache block, so a read/modify/write cycle may be needed), the write speed drops drastically.

A similar argument applies to read operations.

I have neglected the O/S overhead, file-system overhead, RAID overhead, etc., which would slow things further.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
