Ex52 nvme

Comes to $61.18

Looks to me like a downside is the lack of enterprise drive but the processor is more powerful and ddr4 ram as opposed to ddr3 other than that I'm unsure if I should switch or not. Looking for advice

It's cheaper, has stupidly fast NVMe drives and the i7-8700 has an iGPU that Plex can use for Hardware transcoding.

I'd switch in a heartbeat.

Edit to add - In the Hetzner Robot interface if you cancel your order (specifically the order, not server - you'll see there's two options) within 14 days they won't charge you. It isn't a free trial though because if you do this too often they'll stop supplying you with servers.

This is the performance of my EX42-NVMe according to Sabnzbd. The NVMe drives are fast.
