Hey guys. It says this is a new account, but I’ve been following for a while, salivating at a chance to do a build.
Currently my Plex Server is ran on Nvidia Shield. I have 2 shuckable WD 10TB connected to it with a 512 external SSD. It is not ideal. In a month I will be moving to a new place where I will get 1000/1000 mbps fiber and more space. I would like to do a build, and per JDM post, I need a NAS and then a quicksync. I do intend on 4k streaming. I believe my ISP will handle everything but I would like the best way for hardware transcode, in the event I move somewhere in the future that my ISP can’t handle the upload. Yes, I will be purchasing more HDDs, with the bargain price at $125, I will probably buy at least 6 of them.
I share my server with my fiance’s family in Norway, and a friend here and there, but the majority of its use is at home. Budget wise, I have about 2k USD to spend. I’d rather not do that much but I would like the best I can get for the money to last a long time.
With that said, any suggestions for a NAS build, and also a transcode system with quicksync? Kinda would like to get pointed in the right direction. Thanks for any advice.
