    Well I have no idea when it comes to plex but I'll give you a run down.

    New 75" 4k tv hisence s8
    Most of my media is on my nas synology 415play
    Ps4 Pro also has plex.

    Before we used to watch everything via a Intel nuc.

    What's my best option to play 4k media on my TV.

    Do I let the nuc do the grunt work (will prolly need to upgrade it)
    Or upgrade my nas and let the ps4 do it.

    I currently find if I try to use plex and my nas is horrible it drops of other apps such as sonnar and nzbget

    I run a Plex server on my DS218j and use MrMC on Apple TV as my main playback device. Only real issue is that the Apple TV 4K does not handle TrueHD Atmos...

    PS4 would probably be fine as a Plex client...

    I found the base PS4 to be pretty shit for Plex.

    I say use the NUC.
