OMG everyone needs to look at this, the OP should look no further then this steel from Amazon, What am I missing?

Synology DS-416 a whopping 90.33 cents  :o Everyone needs to grab a few of these before they fix the price.

Is it worth a $110 price differential over the former TS-451?

 

I have the 451+. It has good performance, and I upgraded it to 8GB of RAM.

Super quiet too.

I don't see why the 5D wouldn't work - it appears as a normal USB external HDD.  I don't have a Shield or I'd test it, but the 5D works just fine plugged in to my Asus router (RT-AC87U).

Before you go jumping to a Shield TV as a Plex Server, have a read around. There are many many people unhappy with the PMS side of things, amongst other complaints.

I have a Shield TV, but just continue to use it as my client, and my Gen8 (E3-1265LV2) as my server.

 

I suspect the Shield TV is ok when mainly direct playing, be interesting to hear how it fares with multiple transcoded streams.

Interesting. Maybe I just get a NUC or similar. I usually am transcoding one stream to the kid's iPad at most. Everything else is direct play.
