Is SFP+ or SFP or 10GbE overkill for NAS?



I have 10 GbE NIC's across my various machines (NAS, Desktops, Servers ) and  a 10 GbE switch.


Granted having some older macs and desktop still that have 1G, is there a real benefit of having such a setup?


Like when copying large movies (30-60GB plus) or lots of many files?


Just wondering.

If you have a good concept where to store files, then there's not a big benefit on 10GB bandwith.
I guess, I would appreciate it for doing backups form one NAS to anotherone, not in the same room... 
But here as well, I don't care, if a backup takes two hours from 3am to 5am or 10 minutes ...

Until now, I did not find a killer criteria to justify it. But I'd love to have it anyway ;-)
