What is the best NAS for a 1080p Plex Media Server?

Which NAS to buy for Plex – The Full Compatibility List for Synology, QNAP, Asustor, Netgear, WD PMSChoosing the right Network Attached Storage device for your perfect Plex Media Server can be a rather intimidating and daunting process. Over the years the NAS Server market has exploded with numerous devices becoming available to home, small business and enterprise users and with such a large number of NAS devices available it is understandable that it is becoming increasing hard to choose the best NAS for a PMS (Plex Media Server). I have been in the Network Attached Storage industry for a number of years now and have played with and owned many, many NAS servers from big brands like QNAP NAS, Synology, WD, Netgear, Asustor NAS and more.

When choosing the right Plex NAS, one of the most important things to consider is transcoding and whether you will need to transcode data from one size to another between the Plex Media server and the device you are watching the media on (iPad, ChromeBook, iPhone, Android device, Laptop, Smartphone, Smart TV, etc). If yes and you want to transcode 1080p HD media, then you will need a powerful x86 CPU like an Intel Pentium or i3 CPU at the very least. Whereas if you only need to watch your Plex Media in the home using the internal network and are not restricted by factors like the speed of your network connection, the device you are watching with being able to view large formats/codecs, or do not intend to watch large files at all, THEN you can use a NAS with a lower ARM v7 CPU from companies like Marvell and Annapurna. The options are very wide and I thought it would be worth taking the time to tell you which NAS server devices from each NAS vendor are the best for Plex in 1080p, 720p, 480p, SD and even just straight forward DLNA for your home network.

Which NAS to buy for Plex The Full Compatibility List for Synology, QNAP, Asustor, Netgear, WD PMS QNAP PL It is worth mentioning that All of the following NAS devices in my comprehensive list of Plex NAS servers:

  • Can host a Plex Media Server and access all the Media on the NAS as required
  • Either arrive with the Plex App already installed or have access to an App store internally that can download and install the Plex Media Server Application
  • All work worldwide and can be connected to your local US, UK, EU, AU, etc plug
  • If purchased Brand New, will arrive with at least 2 years of Manufacturers warranty (upto 5 years in some cases)
  • Will Play Media natively via DLNA and without transcoding to local media devices (Console, PC, Smart TV, etc)
  • Arrive with all CPU and RAM installed along with the Operating System, though in most cases you will need to buy Hard Drive media

How and where do I sign up for Plex? How much does Plex Cost?

The Plex Application for your NAS, Mac, PC, Android device is free and available in the NAS App store, iTunes and Google Playstore at no additional cost, though the free apps, though serving as an excellent introduction, will soon feel limited and we advise that if you upgrade to the Plex Pass subscription service for vastly improved options and add-ons. To begin setting up your Plex Media Server, you will need to head over to Plex and set up your account (use the below link) so you can have all your movie, TV show, music, and photo collections at your fingertips. Anywhere you go, on the devices you love.

How do I choose the Best NAS for my Plex Media Server?

In order to help you understand which NAS will provide the best possible Plex Media Server NAS performance in 1080p, 720p, 480p, SD, etc, I have set up a scoring system of AF. This Scoring System can be explained below:

A = Will Play whatever you throw at it in, will transcode 1080p via Plex and will in most cases transcode 4K Media Natively outside of Plex

B = Will transcode 720p and 1080p in Plex, however  may possible struggle with more dense media such as larger .mkv and .mov files

C = Will only transcode media up to 480p and is not recommended to those who want to transcode FULL HD media or multiple transcoding at once, however will transcode a lot of media natively outside of Plex via DLNA.

D = Will not transcode Media at all in Plex, typically an ARM v7 CPU and though can host a Plex Media Server, will not be able to transcode media for destination devices

E = Cannot transcode media and not especially suitable for Plex as even the App will struggle to play and download metadata (for thumbnails, descriptions, etc) at the same time – not recommended.

F = Cannot transcode Video or Audio, runs the Plex App poorly, has low NAS specifications and you’d be better off with a 1996 VHS player
