Synology DS3018xs PROS

designIt is very interesting to see what Synology have done with the design on the DS3018xs. They have a very well known chassis design and rather than making a completely new one (as QNAP have been known to do with new product ranges and series) they have created a chassis almost identical to previous diskstation NAS, but this one is wider and can hold 6x HDD or SSD. This makes it look very similar to the DS1517+ and DS1517+ - But this one is so, so much more powerful!
featuresThis is possibly the most powerful Synology Diskstation NAS ever made (with the possible exception of the DS3617xs). It can do ANYTHING that you need a NAS to perform. However the features and abilities of this device do not stop internally. This unit arrives with a 5 Year Warranty and the SRS - Synology Replacement Service. That means that If you have a hardware issue during the first years of you owning it, they will send a fast replacement. Likewise the 5 year warranty is a huge bonus for business users.
performanceThanks to a Intel D and DDR4 ECC Memory, this unit performs insanely well. Plus the unit has a PCIe slot for adding upgrade cards - this means that file operations and iOps are can be made incredibly high. This is truly the NAS to beat
valueIt is really hard to fault the Synology DS3018xs - it is seemingly the NAS that is teh evolution of everything Synology have done in the past 5 years. Almost every industry standard (software and hardware) have been exceeded on this unit. This is easily in the top 10 NAS of 2017 and 2018
Synology DS3018xs CONS

designStill no LCD panel.
featuresFantastic features that push the boundaries of the DSM software - however the CPU at this time has not been hugely bench tested outside of the NAS, so hard to know it's full potential at this time.
performanceI know it is a silly complaint - but the lack of any kind of non-network access (such as Thunderbolt or Direct attached access like that of the QNAP TVS-673)
valueThe price will definitely put the more budget buyer off
