What the difference editing video via 1GbE or 10GbE connected NAS?

But how crucial is it to have 10gbe vs 1gbe for video editing. My drive has SSD options – should I go for that have store working video files on those drives.

You can edit on either of the connections. The difference is speed. Editing via 1GbE is like working on a slow USB2 external drive. Whereas 10GbE is more like editing on external USB3.1 gen 2 drive. So you can work on both. But on the slow one, you will get loading symbol all the time during 4K editing. It would be ok with 1080p though most of the time.

I hope this helps.
