  PROS
designIf it ain't broke, don't fix it! That is the motto of Synology by the look of their chassiS design this last few years and in the DS1517+ NAS from Synology, this is kept in check! A great combination of metal and plastic where it count, this unit much like it's predecessor (the DS1515+) factors like noise and heat are kept low and this enclosure definitely ticks the boxes for all the Mac users out there - plus looks really nice on your desk! Not exactly vital, but in an age of modern design, a welcome addition.
featuresThe remarkably powerful Quad-Core CPU that the DS1517+ arrives with is an excellent multi-tasking and single task NAS. Those who are familiar with the Synology software and the Synology range will take one look at this unit and what it can do and fall in love! Also, arriving with either 2GB or 8GB or DDR3 memory (which can be expanded further to 16GB!!!) whatever you did in your previous desktop Synology NAS, the DS1517+ and DS1817+ will do it better!
performanceWith this being the highest powered Synology Desktop NAS yet (if you overlook the DS3617xs) then it won;t come as a shock that the DS1517+ and DS1817+ are two of the best performing NAS ever released from Synology. Whatever you need your NAS to do, however you need it to perform, this unit can do it. And don't forget that to expand your storage, you can always use two of the DX517 Synology NAS Expansion devices to add an extra 10 HDD to your storage capacity. This can be independent storage, one GIANT RAID combining all potential 15 HDD bays, or used as a synchronised backup from the NAS to the expansion. A terrific and full featured NAS server
valueAlthrough this might not be the cheapest 5-Bay NAS in the market, the Synology DS1517+ NAS is the go-to NAS server for Mac users, those who want a streamlined and user-friendly UI and most importantly of all, the people who want a NAS that sits there doing the job it needs and don;t want to tinker. An excellent NAS server and some fantastic product output buy the joint best NAS providers of 2017.

  CONS
designfeatures like a lack of LCD, remote control and one touch copy button will put some users off - if you need these features, then then QNAP TVS-473 may well be the NAS server for you.
featuresSynology NAS still lack functions like HDMI, LCD, DAS connectivity, Thunderbolt, remote controls and more. A little bit of a pity that we are still yet to see more action from Synology on this, as QNAP really dominate on these areas!
performanceBecause the DS1517+ NAS is a closed system (no direct access), all performance and application use is limited to network only. Of course, given the improved encryption system 'AES-NI' in use and all login and access permissions and credentials are checked constantly and the BTRFS file system for background checks and snapshots, this is only a partial disadvantage.
valueIf you are of a mind to upgrade more, to tinker with the hardware, to play with your device in the settings, direct access and generally are of a slightly more technical mind, then the Synology DS1517+ might seen a little too expensive for what you get. For you, I recommend the QNAP TVS-671, TVS-673 or the TVS-682. All 6-Bays and all in a similar price range to the DS1517+ NAS.

Synology DiskStation NAS DS1517+ (8GB) reviews


09/07/2018 | greg@evertec.co.za | ZA Flag |
Hi, I currently have a Synology 1511+ NAS with 5 x Seagate ST3000VN000 3TB drives. However, I need more storage space. Thus, I want to upgrade to a Synology 1517+ NAS with 5 x Western Digital Gold WD101KRYZ 10TB drives. Is there any other configuration I should consider? Are you able to send me a quote for pricing? Regards, Greg
Hi Greg,

Good NAS, I trust it.

With Synology 10Gbe Ethernet Adapter you can actually direct attach this NAS to your PC. This will let you have file transfers with speed around 600MB/s (RAID5). No need for 10Gbe switch. That is budget option for single user.
11/04/2017 | | GB Flag |
Just found out in pdf spec. sheet that its possible to upgrade this NAS with self error correction memory ECC RAM. Important if storing sensitive information.
• 16 GB (8 GB x 2) DDR3 ECC SO-DIMM kit (RAM1600DDR3L-8GBx2)
• 8 GB (4 GB x 2) DDR3 ECC SO-DIMM kit (RAM1600DDR3L-4GBx2)
