Recently had a price drop on Amazon and is now the best value of the My Cloud Home drives in terms of TB/£. Lowest it’s been according to CamelCamelCamel. Appreciate its nowhere near as cheap as the clearance or refurbished deals often posted for the 2013 My Cloud drives but for anyone that’s after one of these newer models, this is a great price

Been reading the comments on Amazon wrt this drive, pls have a read first as they are consistently bad and explains why.
Some recommend the previous model.

I’ve been keeping an eye on these as I wanted something that can run DNLA or Plex and stream raw UHD rips to a 4K TV. I’m guessing a router would be no good for that? Would I be better with a refurb model of the the original My Cloud drives? High read speed is obviously important as UHD rips seem to be 60-100GB in size

The total size wouldnt matter, just the speed through the network.

DLNA is something Ive seen in routers but not PLEX, for something like that youll probably want a compatible NAS or computer.

Plex keeps a list somewhere on their site if you want to go the NAS route, be careful if transcoding is something you want as cheaper devices may not support it (one reason I went the server route).
I found a £2.50 DLNA certified router in charity shop. (It says it on the back)
According to the reviews on Amazon, you can load a Plex extension onto this but its partially lobotomised as you cant order your collection as its all mixed up. Please confirm if still valid.
