IMO, total overkill for PLEX server - no need to spend $1,000 after tax for a NAS

Build your own with an older Xeon for much less. Wow that is expensive.

While I don't think it is overkill for a plex server that is super expensive for a 4 bay. Should be an 8 bay at this price. Also, you are buying an older i3, equivalent to the current Pentium chips.

I've got less cash tied up in a dual E5-2695 V2 Xeon system with 128GB of ram in a 36 bay supermicro chassis. It's total over kill but runs unRAID and PLEX with no problems 51TB of storage.

I3 will be OK for basic plex server I suppose. Not worth 1k.

Kinda curious. Do you know how much electricity that draws while idle? I have been looking at maybe buying an older supermicro 24 bay but really don't want something that draws a ton of power being on 24/7.

May end up building a DIY 8 bay with a 1151 server board and G4600. Seems like that would be a good middle ground between electricity and performance.

Around 356 Watts. I have unRAID spin down my drives when they aren't being used. Under a full load with all drives spinning during a parity scan it's around 450 Watts.

if you go with an older chassis for the 24 bay try to either get a SAS2 backplane or a TQ where each bay has its own sata connector on the backplane. a sas1 backplane maxes out at a 2TB drive for how large of a drive it recognizes.

Would an embedded Celeron quad-core (j see series) with an old r7 or r9 amd graphics card transcode Plex fine?

The Dell server is only $299 from Dell directly.

I've spent maybe 500 on a Xeon based quad core with HT and even added 32gb EEC, and a ssd for my OS. Add in drives and it's still under 1k easy. I think with 4 3TB drives it ran maybe 400 more. So 900 for a system that consumes low power and has way more potential than this box. Heck the Dell Xeon is even a better deal

My system is a Lenovo TS440. I bought it off eBay brand new last year for 375. These Lenovo's rock for plex

Graphics card really isn't necessary at all for a plex server.
