VALUE FOR MONEY
|features||For such a compact and cost effective device, it is possibly one of the best cost v hardware NAS that Synology have ever produced. Supporting many common NAS applications and functionality such as transcoding, 4K Playback, surveillance recording from IP Cameras, Apple Time Machine and more Don't let the size fool you|
|performance||Performing better and with more efficiency than the older DS116, the DS118 quad core Realtek CPU and DDR memory mean that you have a good balance of power underneath the bonnet. However it is designed more with efficiency than power in mind and therefore you should factor that in when buying,|
|value||Hard to argue with so much ability and output at this price range. You need to overcome the lack of RAID protection and intel CPU, but after that you will not be disappointed. Easily one of the top 10 NAS devices we have seen so far|
|design||Using the same chassis as the DS116 NAS, the DS118 NAS is a compact, low power use, low noise and discreet size. If you are looking for a NAS you cancelled in a cupboard or draw somewhere, this may well be the perfect NAS for you.|
|features||The only downside, despite the high performance, is that this is based on the fact it is an ARM processor and therefore will always pale in comparison to a solid x86 based Intel or AMD CPU. Disappointing that PLEX has not yet released supported plex app.|
|performance||Once you start looking at tasks that factor higher amounts of rendering, transcoding or much broader multimedia tasks across multiple streams at once, you will start to struggle|
|value||If you have used NAS in they past, especially a device released this year) then the DS118 will not exactly blow your socks off. For it's size and price tag, it is an excellent NAS, but more designed with first time NAS users, micro users or those on a tight budget in mind.|
|design||A Single HDD NAS, as many already know, lacks RAID protection. This should certainly be a factor to take into consideration when considering a NAS to store all your data.|
