I have been ripping my blu ray and dvd collection to my hard drive and have a WD cloud running through a Netgear Nighthawk 1900 router. I found there is a lot of buffering issues with my current setup. I know that I could use a regular hard drive hooked up to my router via USB 3.0. Is that the best route? Is PLEX worth the added cost for a software interface? I have Apply TV on most of the TV's and would like to have a quality app that can access these movies and play them without buffering issues. Any advice would be great! I have an open mind on where to go from here.
