This will easily work as a Plex Server. Now as far as 4K, you said "encoding", I assume you mean "transcoding". If thats what you mean, I don't really think this equipped to transcode 4K HDR files in real time, you need alot of CPU horsepower for that. I don't really believe most people transcode 4K HDR files currently, especially if you're talking full size UHD BluRays which can be upwards of 50-80GB per file. If you're Direct Playing these files then this should be more than enough. The only limitation at that point would be your connection speeds. As far as 1080p HD this should be perfectly fine for both DirectPlay and transcoding thanks to Intel Quick Sync support on the CPU. (You need a Plex Pass to take advantage of that though)

This is where you want to look: https://nascompares.com/2021/03/13/plex-synology-nas-performance-guide-2021-edition/

According to that, it _does_ support 4K SDR via hardware transcoding.

I also procrastinated this and was reading last night on things to do with a NAS besides backups. Glad I waited and saw the lightning deal this morning. Plus for prime members with a prime card 6% cashback during Primeday.

Bought the DS920+ last year for 550, great purchase, great interface. Well worth the money even more so at this price.

Running 4x16TB seagate exos in RAID 6. Primarily used for media consolidation (movies/TVshows/anime in one place) and PLEX.

Been waiting for this, thanks, picked one up. I have a BH Payboo card, so I get my state tax removed, but Amazon is still a better deal with the lower lightning price, 6% back on the Prime Visa, and I had some gift cards to blow too.

I bought a QNAP TS-453Be 4-Bay in 2018 and it's been rock solid. Any point in upgrading to a DS920+?

If I bought the 4 bay for redundancy/backup would I be alright with shucking some WD external HDD's or would you guys recommend the RED HHD's?

From Amazon page:
Average 15% performance boost to photo indexing and other computing-intensive operations, as well as database response time.

No Idea what that increase is compared to...

As someone that has an HP Microserver Gen 8, Gen 10, Gen 10 Plus, various 4-Bay Qnaps, and an Asustor (I do media work, so everything is backed up), the main benefits to the Synology are the compactness of this nas, quietness (compared to the HPs), power consumption, OS, app ecosystems, user friendliness, and a good community. The Gen 10 Plus is a step up from this in many areas. However with the HPs, RAM is more expensive due to ECC. Depending what OS you run, it my open different problems. I run Freenas/ Truenas, which has different requirements depending on what you are running and how many drives you have.

If you want something you want to setup once and not think about it again, the Synology will do it.

If you need to keep tinkering around with hardware or OS, that's the HP.

I have a question about power usage. I'm running a raspberry pi 4 with a 5tb external drive running as a docker server running 24/7. I assume that it is using about 10w. I'm curious about the power usage of this nas if this is populated with drives. Will it go up to around 30-40w average? How about using nvme cache? Will it reduce the power usage?
