I’ve recently started browsing this forum and a bunch of resouces about NAS and servers. I’m brand new to this and wanted to get some people’s thoughts on my build for my first NAS/Plex Server. Any advice is greatly appreciated!
I’m looking for the following features:
- Budget: <$500 (without drives)
- Low Power Usage
- 1 4k Direct, 4-6 remote transcoding.
- Low Noise/Silent
- Looking to run Plex Server as well as docker to run Sonar/Radarr
- OS: Ubuntu/Unraid
Will this be fine for what I need or should I look to upgrade any of the parts? I’m planning to shuck some WD Easystore 8 TB drives for my storage.
