Choosing a NAS or HTC for PLEX
Which is better?
1. A HTC (Home Theater Computer) running as a PLEX server and player, mainly for digitizing music CD collection to playback through home network, adding a few available 1TB drives
2. A new 4 bay NAS central PLEX and data server for a number of household computers.
Usually HTC will be cheaper then a NAS. But you won’t have a RAID protection.
With a NAS you can build bigger volumes then HTC would allow. And you can easier sharing options and data protections functions.
NAS- bigger, safer.
HTC – cheaper and faster.
I hope this helps.
