featuresFor 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
performancePerforming 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,
valueHard 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
designUsing 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.

  CONS
featuresThe 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.
performanceOnce 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
valueIf 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.
designA 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.

Synology DiskStation NAS DS118 reviews


20/08/2020 | Guest | GB Flag |
What is the maximum storage DS118 NAS can handle?
It is better to ask SPAN for free compatibility checks. But as today you could fill it with 1X 18TB Seagate Ironwolf. This would give you a total raw storage of 18TB
19/08/2020 | Guest | GB Flag |
Can I use any drives with this NAS?
Yes, but we would recommend to use WD Red or Seagate Ironwolf. They consume less energy and generate less vibration and noise.
18/08/2020 | Guest | GB Flag |
Can I upgrade the RAM on this NAS?
Looking at the specs, this NAS should allow RAM upgrade. Ask SPAN.COM for free compatibility checks.
17/08/2020 | Guest | GB Flag |
Is this enclosure suitable for a SSD - such as Samsung EVO SATA III SSD
Yes, it will work with Samsung, WD or Seagate SSD. In fact this will improve the internal speed and make apps run faster.

Lovely little one bay, perfect for backup with the ease of Synology brand know how! Just choose the capacity drive of your choice and you are on a roll.
26/03/2018 | Usama Z | AE Flag |
I am stuck between DS118 and DS218J as a offsite backup nas. I am currently using DS218+ as my primary NAS device. Via cloudshare sync, the files will be transferred from DS218+ to DS118. Further, DS118 will be plugged with an external usb drive for hyper backups. There shall be no other use of DS118 except for taking backups. What is your recommendation. Thanks
As a backup, a DS118 is great.

If you would like to further protect the data, then a 2-bay such as the DS218J or DS218play is a better option, using a RAID-1 (mirror).

Transcodes all my videos from Iphone. I have new Iphone 8 with 4k video. No problem. Good price.
08/12/2017 | | GB Flag |
Listed on Span as supporting Plex and in fact it does not, due to the ARM v8 processor without v7 compatibility.

It is true- PLEX have not yet created PLEX server app version for Realtek processor. So if your intentions are to use it as PLEX server, you need to wait little longer until Plex develops an app for it. In meantime you can still use it as 4K transcoding NAS with Video Station app. Plex will struggle even with 1080p transcoding when they will release an app. CPU on its own is not very powerful, but transcoding chip makes it very powerful with Synology own apps.

This is revolutionary release! First super budget transcoding device for home! Before you had to get at least ds216play to enjoy video resolution conversion for different mobile devices. So DS116 would let you only stream you media - that way using too much of your WiFi bandwidth. DS118 now will allow you to watch easily your videos when you are on the go using 3G or 4G. H265 and 4K transcoding adds this extra benefit of transcoding videos from new iphone 8 and iphone X videos. Great release.
