I used Supermicro X7SPA-H-D525 which is integrated with Atom D525(Dual Core, 1.8GHz) as my NAS for last 5 years.

Recently, I was looking for a home media server and found that Plex can manage all kinds of media such as photos, videos, movie and TV shows. Plex also can be accessible from most devices like computers, smartphones, tablets and even TV. It’s amazing!

After setting up Plex on my NAS, I realized that Atom D525 is not enough for transcoding. So, I decided to upgrade my NAS box!
