Here's an example of one: When I last checked (which was, admittedly, a
while back), no NAS devices I could find would support the near-POSIX ACLs
over NFSv3. Worse, nobody that did support NFSv4 was support it's ACLs.

Building a NAS out of either Linux or Solaris, one gets ACLs over NFS.

It's a very specific need, admittedly, but it's one example of a situation
that might drive choosing a server over a "device".

[I did actually find one NAS "device" vendor that support ACLs over NFS.
But their device was a Linux machine. And it had many problems, none of
which I ever had on Linux that I'd installed myself.]
