If you want a very efficient media server for your home than consider running a Linux distro and using Plex media server to stream to your smart tv, Roku, etc. I have an older netbook that serves an a full time media server. It sits in the closet and runs 24/7. I am running Linux Mint XFCE 18 as my OS streaming to a Roku stick. Another device I use as a media server is the Raspberry Pi.
