Media File Server

PenguinMaster

I am looking for a server that can stream movies, tv shows, pictures, and maybe backup some computers. The budget is $600 max. Does anyone know any good severs, used servers are ok, or any good software. I was thinking running plex on an Mac mini, with some external storage drives, but that would not be ideal for transfer speeds.

If you need me to follow up on something, please quote or tag me.

That would work fine. STreaming moves doesn't need a fast drive(normally 50mbit max, less than 10% of the drive max.

 

A basic synology or NAS box would work fine here, or something like a celeron or pewntium would work fine.
