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).

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.

All good so far

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

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.
