This month, Thecus will begin phasing in the popular Plex Media Server software into its product offerings with new 7-bay, Top Tower, and rackmount NAS. Additionally all existing Thecus customers, the Plex Media Server app will be offered free of charge through the Thecus App Center.
For those who are unfamiliar with Plex and its products, Plex Media Server has became the de facto standard in home media streaming in recent years. The software makes managing a vast digital library of Movies, Videos, Music and Photos quick and easy, while the Plex Media Client app allows streaming from the server to any supporting device. The Plex client is featured on many of today's smart TVs, Xbox 360, Android, iOS, Linux, Windows, Mac, and even the Raspberry Pi.
I have been running the Plex Media Server software as my personal media server for over a year now, and honestly can not imagine life without it. It makes organizing, managing, and playback of my digital library so easy that I forget its running sometimes. With Thecus adding the Plex Media Server app to its offerings, the company has just moved to the top spot of my list!
