"It is Ok - struggles with transcoding - should have got the 914 as its cpu is way better"

"Really happy with both this unit and PB tech. Have it loaded with 8TB seagate iron-wolfs and it worked seamlessly first time (unlike the other brand NAS I bought first and returned).

DS418play supports 4K H.264/H.265 online transcoding via Video Station and DS video, allowing 4K videos to be converted and played on the fly on other computers, smartphones, and media players that originally do not support Ultra HD formats.

Good/Poor

10 September 2018
This NAS box works very well but the documentation provided with it is almost non-existant. The help desk at Synology spouted jargon at me, even after I asked them to explain to me in a simple manner.

Excellent NAS for home media streaming - PLEX

2 August 2018
Really happy with both this unit and PB tech. Have it loaded with 8TB seagate iron-wolfs and it worked seamlessly first time (unlike the other brand NAS I bought first and returned).
The software is OK, app store good (using PLEX app) It makes a bit of noise while copying so don't put it in the lounge! Can Highly recommend over netgear (which I also own) and Asustor (which i returned)

Great NAS

30 April 2018
This NAS is fast, easy to use and the software that it comes with is makes setting it up and using it extremely easy. It also works well with multiple people using it at the same time.
Only one minor thing is that you find that it does not support DTS audio and a small plug in you can install will solve the issue.

Highly recommend this product for those that want to have a easy plug and play NAS.

This is my second synology NAS. Definitely offers some improved performance of the ds416j I already have. The upgradable memory and faster processor is a real bonus. I also really prefer the front mount drive bay access. It's nice to not have to open up the case to add/change drives. Highly recommend Synology over the NAS brands due to the features and capabilities of the DSM software.
