NAS Server for Plex -DVDs, Blu Rays and 4K movies

NAS Server for Plex. I have a very large collection of DVDs, Blu Rays and 4K movies. I have at least three thousand of them. I also have close to 100 TV series and and a couple of terrabytes of music. As I’m running out of space for all of the disks, I began inquiring around about alternative ways of storing my media. I just recently came across PLEX Media software and became very intrigued. I want to know what I all need for a server and how to set it up. I recently hooked up two 8 TB external drives to my PC, which works but my TV series alone will more than fill that. I would probably need to start with say 40 TB and expand up to 100 plus TBs with a RAID configuration. It will take me a long time to rip all of those disks into digital format anyway. Any advice and pricing help would be appreciated. I see you will have a Black Friday sale soon, so that might help.

$3000 to $5000 100 plus TB

Black Friday Sale is generally for selling old or unwanted stuff. You need something reliable and easy to use. As an ultimate Plex multimedia server, people choose Qnap TVS-1282-i7 or DS3617xs from Synology. These two are high capacity and performance NAS solutions capable of dealing with 4K media. These two are also easily expandable with expansion units. Now there are Ironwolf 14TB drives and WD red 12tb drives available allowing you to achieve the capacity you are looking for.

When deciding between Synology and Qnap, it is a question about – are you more like a technical guy or a consumer type. Qnap will have all sorts of extra configuration capabilities. Whereas Synology will allow you to set it up and forget about it and just use it. Qnap will always offer more hardware performance for your money. Whereas Synology will compete with its software capabilities and interface.
