Sounds legit, post your setup so we can recreate it.

Thanks in advance.

People always try to run plex off of their NAS when it's not what it's fully built for. It's network attached storage so you should use it for that. If you want to run plex, use a HTPC and then use the qnap for storage.

My setup uses a qnap and dell server via iscsi and VMware. In fact, it uses the T20 that's on a deal right now too. Good time to do that if you want that setup.
Building your own mega box o' drives will always be cheaper then buying this or comparable prebuilt device.

You pay for 5 things over unRAID (Or any other DIY)
1) Convenience
2) Convenience
3) Convenience
4) Size of the box
5) Uses less power

If you can do it yourself. You usually get a bit faster machine and better performance.

This one is enterprise more like, there is no HDMI. I was looking for Linux for my TV and this one cannot do it. I was looking for 453a model, still waiting for price drop.

Hmmm.. tempting.

Plex streaming spreadsheet. Next exactly required, but I Think it shows transcode ability regardless of what software is used. Seems like it can transcode 1080p, but I am really not sure if I want to get this or wait for 4k now. Probably not worth waiting.

Doubt it, but maybe someone more knowledgeable could say otherwise. For multiple 1080p transcodes I'd go more for something like the Dell t20 xeon server for $250AR that was listed a few days ago.

I'd say no, the SOC is: https://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu....-420CA+SOC

So transcoding nowadays is done with GPU or APU, so just get a model with that. It will provide you 4k as well.

Pretty sure Plex transcoding is 100% CPU

Yea, last a heard with 4k streaming it's done over HDMI and not over the enthernet. Streaming 4k over the ethernet is probably not going to happen anytime soon with an affordable option.

Still, I think this unit would make for a great file NAS.

What's the benefit of this versus a low cost unRAID setup using HDD laying around the house?

Why? 4k only needs 45Mbit for standard rate and 65Mbit for higher framerate over eithernet... Even 100Mbit can handle that.
