Amazon has the QNAP TS-451+ 4-bay Diskless NAS for $354.11.

The cheapest Amazon or Newegg have ever had this unit was $379 several months ago. Yesterday this was priced at $434 on Amazon, and is currently $389 on Newegg through 11/26 with promo code. With Amex $25 off 200, Newegg price would come down to as low as $364.

$354 is the lowest price I've ever seen for the TS-451+ from a reputable seller.

In case people are not as familiar with Plex, the question shouldn't be "can it run Plex?", but "can it transcode Plex?" (Transcoding allows your video to play on any plex client on any device at any time)

The crappiest, slowest NAS can run Plex. But you need horsepower to transcode. Just something to research before pulling the trigger.

It should. At least mine hp microserver gen8 which has similar hardware running plex easily (it actually runs few VMs with plex inside one of them).

Very good price for this unit.

I am not sure if I need a NAS or not. What's the difference vs a PC with a large hard drive or two set up for file sharing via homegroup on windows.

I currently access windows media center recorded tv and music files stored on my main htpc from other laptops and htpcs in the basement and bedroom for example. Would I benefit from moving to a NAS in my situation?

I got one because I need it long time ago. It's still the second powerful NAS 4-bay after 453A.

Plex server and Raid 1 setup are the biggest advantages over a htpc and homegroup setup.

Streaming to multiple devices simultaneously while having everything backed up is amazing

Your portable devices can download Plex app for Android/ios while Tvs can be paired with a device like Amazon Fire, Roku etc to stream to your tv

Man this is a fantastic deal. I have been looking at the ts-451 and the synology ds-416. I was about to pull the trigger on the 451 on Newegg last night but thought I'd wait to see what popped up today. Glad I waited! Nice find.

Is the $150+ difference b/w the ts-431 and this worth it?

I decided a week ago what brand NAS to buy: QNAP or Synology. Finally, bought Synology 2 bays NAS as QNAPs have serious stability issues according Amazon's reviews.
