VALUE FOR MONEY
|design||This Standard 8-Bay NAS is the lower tier alternative to the popular DS1817+ NAS from Synology. That said, the sleek, modern and compact chassis design from Synology is still a firm favourite for many and also quieter than most. If it ain't broke, don't fix it!|
|features||Though it lacks the higher end Intel CPU of the bigger PLUS model, the Annapurna CPU found in this device is the perfect blend of speed and multi-purpose use for multiple file exchanges across many folders and applications. Likewise, it can be used in more conventional home uses like Plex (without transcoding), Surveillance, mail servers, Apple Time Machine and more. It may not be breath takingly fast, but it is more than enough for most to get by with.|
|performance||With an above average read and write and multiple gigabit LAN ports (RJ45), ease of use, versatility of the operating software and more, if this is your first or second NAS, you will be pleasantly surprised at how well it performs for your day to day tasks in a home or small office environment.|
|value||This unit is priced evenly in their 'food-chain' of NAS devices. You will not be paying top dollar for this unit, however you do get what you pay for in terms of overall power and ability.|
|design||However this design This design is becoming a little stale so many years after release and could well be due an upgrade.|
|features||As soon as you want to perform more business class or power consuming applications, you will hit the limits with this unit. It is a mid range NAS device and should be treated as such.|
|performance||If you are looking for a more business concentric NAS that will be able to smoothly handle a multi user access environment or more graphically demanding task will find this device rather limiting. In those cases, I have no hesitation in recommending the Synology DS1817+ NAS|
|value||For those thinking longer term, it is worth considering spending a little more and going for the more powerful NAS device so you can grow and expand your needs within the lifespan of your hardware.
