Yes you can. Either through a browser logging in and using 'MyPlex' or through the iOS/Android/WP8 app and point to your IP/domain.
I have only been using Plex for three weeks now so I can't say why he is doing "so good". PMS has had difficulties on my old PS3 setup though and needed _a lot_ of tweaking.
Since Plex is free apart from the mobile apps, it seems like a good way to go. Note they have WMC plugin as well.
On performance the Plex server is set to max quality for local streaming, i.e. 20Mps and 1080p. On the iPad it appears perfect, when streaming from outside the home network he is set to 10Mps 1080p and it still looks very good in a browser.
