My experience agrees with yours. However we did find one gotcha -- see the thread starting here for details:

In a nutshell, be careful when using an nfs mounted data directory combined with an init script that creates a new data dir when it doesn't find one.

FWIW, if I were to do this anew, I would probably opt for iSCSI over GigE with
a NetApp.

Any particular reason? Our NetApp technical rep advised nfs over iSCSI, IIRC because of performance.
