I've installed it on my Shield. It's pretty good. I've gotten it to Direct play 4 movies at a time and transcode up to 2 (9mbps bit rate) 1080p movies.

Given the ability of the Shield to both run the Plex server and directly access a NAS I consider it to be an awesome minimalist solution. (I am running a secondary Plex server off my Shield, my main Plex server has more transcode power)

I'm with you. I share my Plex library with family and friends and can have up to four 1080p transcodes going at one time, so having a more robust setup is necessary for me.
