It basically just makes media content management extremely simple because you only ever have to manage it in one spot (your PC) but can then access it from a multitude of platforms. There's more to it in terms of presentation style, metadata, etc. that people like a lot, but at its most basic level it's an easy way to organize and access shitloads of media without having to copy it to multiple devices.
So, you can set up a Plex 'channel' with all your downloaded media on it (presumably with a nice interface to help you navigate)?

Do you use a NAS (networked accessed storage) box for your media? I have one for my music, so I don't have to leave my laptop on all the time.
