A Bit Pricey But Worth it

I've been a fan of Synology for some years now and all I was hoping to do with the DS218+ is add an updated 4K option for my streaming. It does this quite well and meets my demands. It does tend to slip into sleep mode quite readily and then takes about 30 sec to wake up and respond to a file demand or listing request. This may be something I have to tweak. It supports up to 14TB so I'm looking to expand my storage soon as I can afford the heavy price that demands. Had this for nearly a month now and it meets my expectations - as do all Synology products. Well done! Only complaint - and this is generic to Synology - I just wish they continued...view more

So much more than a NAS

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

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).

So Far, I'm impressed

The person I spoke to in at PB tech Manukau was very knowledgeable. I told him what my needs were for a NAS and he recommended this Synology Dis Station DS218+.

I came back the next day (a few days before #nzlockdown) and purchased it, along with some Seagate IronWolf Drives.

It was very straight forward to assemble and configure. The remote access, via Online, app, and VPN, was also very easy to set up on the NAS.

Based on setup and initial Use I would definitely recommend the Synology DS218+

Synology DS218+

Great unit, easy to set up and get going. Plenty of additional apps to choose from. Did the usual search and compare before deciding on Synology and they appeared generally at the top of the lists. Good selection of compatible drives available to choose from.

Bigted

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.

Does what it says, pretty slow transfer

Easy as to set up with mac systems... easy to use and transfers with no issues. Although transfer speeds are pretty slow.
