I use a spare RPi4b as a Plex server for my home. It looks a bit silly, big disk and small RPI, but it works fine and is energy efficient. I am seeing the same up/download speeds at Pastrychef.Out of curiosity, I just tried to create a new OpenMediaVault NAS on my Raspberry Pi with an old 2.5" drive. From start to finish, it took less than 45 minutes. Most of the time was spent on trying to make sense of unintuitive UI. But once set up, everything worked as advertised. Even performance was pretty decent considering it's just a Raspberry Pi. I got ~70-90MB/s writes and ~105MB/s reads.
Setting it all up will take some effort. I am using a WD 8TB USB disk for sharing.
RPI is passively cooled, so completely silent.
