Yep. I just started getting into Plex. I had a prior PC sitting around collecting dust and my daughter wanted a minecraft server. So I started one on it and also decided to run a Plex server on it.
I have always ripped all my Blu-Rays and DVD to MKV's for years. For my 2 main TV's I have a WD LIve SMP player on one and a Popcorn Hour A210 on the other, which do great jobs. However, it's nice to have access to my movies now on the 3 bedroom TV's via either the Tivo Minis or the Rokus I have. I do hate that the Tivo version is seriously neutered tho.
The only shortcoming I have with Plex is I only every get DTS from any movie. I mis out on the HD audio list DTS Master Audio and such. This is where the WD Live and Popcorn Hour shine. They handle full HD audio.
