Hi I'm very new to Raspberry Pi.  I want to setup a low power consumption Plex Server at home, attached to an external USB HDD.  Would any of these capable of doing what I wanted?  Thanks.

@eugeneykc Very poorly. It won't really support transcoding.

 

Invest in a Nvidia Shield TV instead - [Amazon Link]. They're a little more expensive but support full Plex hardware transcoding out of the box (assuming you've got a Plex Pass subscription). This means it'll stream to any device and is also a darn good media player / emulation device / gaming device on its own.
