I was close to pulling the trigger on a new custom build to be my new NAS. I have it parted via PC-PartPicker. My old Synology is showing its age.
My brother has a crazy ad hoc setup for his kids' Plex shows. One laptop is the server. His Synology NAS is the storage and a newer laptop
is the encoder. I have been using ffmpeg to encode my library into a friendly format for my Plex server on my Synology NAS, but this
is a chore in 2024. I'm after a NAS with CPU muscle to transcode everything I watch on the fly. Faster ethernet ports would be great too and Thunderbolt
ports open up the possibility of an external GPU.
I'm looking at the UGREEN DXP4800 Plus.

The UGREEN DXPN4800 Plus sounds like a solid choice for your needs. It has a powerful CPU for on-the-fly transcoding and supports 2.5/5/10 Gigabit Ethernet for faster data transfers. However, it doesn't have Thunderbolt ports for an external GPU. Make sure to check its full specifications and compatibility with your current setup before making a decision.

Good catch Bot. The next model up has what I need.
