So much more than a NAS

5 November 2018
I'm using this to store files of course, but also running the security software (which is really powerful and easy to use) plus I am running Unifi (on Docker) to manage my Ubiquiti network gear one. Ability to run Docker means that I can run just about anything on this device. I installed an extra 8GB Ram, but it is hardly touched - the standard 2GB seems to be enough for most things.

Works great

26 April 2018
Been use Synology NAS in business, this is the first time i bought a family NAS. It does everything i need, works well. There are apps in package center to do different things, love Synology DSM, easy to use. Actually 218+ is a bit overkill for a family NAS (if mainly for media center / storage purpose).

From the specifications and reviews this is a very good choice of NAS drive for home and small business. Needs some setting up though which makes it even safer to use.
Much more complicated for my small brain to setup than the previous WD MyCloud Personal Drive I had.

All good so far

14 December 2018
Purchased The DS218+ based on other good reviews. I not a total tech head, so I can't go into specifics. Got it for back ups and playing Plex media. So far so good. Seems quiet enough for my requirements - though I keep it in a cupboard.

Excellent

22 November 2018
This is my first NAS drive for home usage. My main purpose is to store images from different family devices using the Moments app. Works fine. Only issue I had was that it took more than 3 days to index/create thumbnails when copying over years of photos.

DS218+ best home server

31 October 2018
Purchased this couple of days ago from the awesome team down at PB Tech North Shore(Matt)

Worked exactly as we discussed and easily worth the money if you want to do away with the external hardrives and flash drives.

Very easy to set up and get going.

Cheers.
