Best NAS for 4K PLEX transcoding

Best NAS for 4K PLEX transcoding

The best NAS for Plex is definitely new 88X series such as TVS-h1288X. It comes with a Xeon CPU and also transcoding chip built-in. Normally you do not get Xeon with this multimedia chip.
Qnap ts-h3088xu is a rack that also features a transcoding chip, but it is quite expensive.

The second place will be i7 based NAS
