Easy setup, does what I want

This unit is very easy to setup. I had it up and running in 20 mins.
Very quiet when running.
I have added some of the DSM apps, which are up and running with a minimum of fuss.

An excellent small NAS

If you define a "real" NAS as one that has at least 2 drives, then this is a very good entry-level NAS / streaming entertainment centre.
It is well built, with user-friendly software that make setup pretty simple.
It is inconspicuous, quiet, and it "just works".

Not cheap, but excellent value for money

I am a computer builder and hi-fi enthusiast. Also a keen Synology NAS user - I now have 7 of them.
The DS218play is my smallest NAS to date, and was bought to house and stream a large (14TB) collection of hi-res music files.
2 x 10TB WD Red HDDs in RAID 0 configuration gives me 18TB of fast storage. It just works.
The Synology DSM operating system is user-friendly, and comes with the option of (free) MinimServer music software.
Not cheap, but excellent value for money. Happy camper.
