Excellent and Easy

17 June 2019
This was my first NAS (unless by a stretch of the concept one includes a Time Capsule). My 2009 home Time Capsule died ( - yes 2009!!) and I needed another backup drive. Was apprehensive about venturing into this NAS territory, but recognised the bonuses beyond backup. I would consider myself just comfortable at the most elementary IT level provided and so long as there are sensible clear guidance or instructions available, I am prepared to give things a go. So after a fair bit of review, the Synology DS 218J stood out as the way to go.

The physical setup was limited to adding the two 2TB WD Reds I bought along with the Synology and I wa...

Easy to set up, fast and great UX

Synology software is so easy to use and the set up and running of this has been a breeze - especially comparing it to the WD MyCloud it's replaced.

SME Backup system

18 February 2019
After six years my old NAS box was creaking and upgrading it would cost more than buying the Synology DiskStation. I didn't realise that it would be difficult for me to install with my limited skills but PBT sent an engineer who did a good job setting me up. The system has taken a few weeks to settle down, essentially because I use my MacBook Air offsite giving little time for back ups to complete.
I now have a triple back up system: the Synology DiskStation and Apple Airport extreme, both quietly working in the background, and a 6 TB seagate (also bought from PBT) that lives offsite
I'm happy.

Excellent Product

27 December 2018
We have set this NAS up with two 2TB Western Digital Red drives, designed for NAS usage.
The capabilities of the Synology OS are quite remarkable, and something of a surprise!

Synology DiskStation DS218j

7 September 2018
Being my first NAS I found the set-up of various access methods not overly complicated if you have a little confidence.
Was disappointed to find I could not map a network drive/folder accessed via the internet. This functionality was only available via internal home network access. Work-around was to run a mirror copy synced via the internet connection which is fine if you have the hard drive space and acts almost like another back-up but not suitable if the folder/drive is large (multi TB)
Back-ups were easy to set-up.
Not tested for speed. Overall pretty satisfied so far.

Synology NAS Drive DS218j

8 August 2018
Does exactly what we need it for.
Pros: Easy to set up VPN access to it from remote locations
Very easy to setup

cons: None yet.
This is our 4th Synology NAS unit in our company and they have been very reliable and trouble free.
Good price at the time as well.

First NAS

21 June 2018
I bought this recently primarily as I wanted something within a modest budget. It had to have enough capacity and capability to work as backup, as well as streaming AV content in the home.
I found it easy to install the HDDs and setup the device on my network. It took a little while to work through the plethora of apps but finally decided on a small number initially just to do the basic regular backups.
Will look at streaming later.
Would definitely recommend this product.
