General Performance

The RS18017xs+ unlike the TES-1885U-D1521-8GR is made by Synology. People often choose Synology because of user friendly interface as well as being suited for Mac and Windows based environments. It is relatively easy to set up and use, and those who are new to Network Attached Storage are advised to go for the Synology. This model comes with new DDR4 technology random access memorty (RAM). DDR3 used to work at 800 MT/s (or Millions of Transfers per second) and some went as high as 2133. DDR4, starts at 2133 MHz. The increased speed means an overall increase in bandwidth.
