Yes, Qnap 472XT just like other XT models are great for multimedia. The UHD Graphics 610 can easily cope with 4K local streaming and even dome smaller 4K file transcoding in Plex. Using the Video station app you can transcode the majority of 4K files. If you connect via HDMI there is no transcoding required at all. And if you stream over the local network to a compatible TV, again transcoding is not something that is required.

Regards the memory, this is something easy to upgrade. But unlikely you would need more than 4GB unless you use Virtual machines.

Noise will depend on drives rather than NAS itself. WD Red seem to fairly quiet drive.

I hope this helps.
