  PROS
designI absolutely love this new chassis. Robbie on our YouTube channel, when asked to compare it with the DS216+ case, described it as comparing the new Robocop movie with the older one. Much more modern shape and design, a good mix of sharp edges with all the curves in the right places.
featuresOn a hardware level, you are going to be hard pushed to find a better 2 bay in this price range. Only the Synology DS718+ gives you better hardware options, but at a price of just £280+ without VAT, this is hard to beat.
performanceFeaturing a great J series CPU from intel in Dual Core and 2GB of memory, this unit can perform all of the very latest applications from synology in DSM 6.2
valueSynology have really turned a corner on their NAS series with this upgrade to the DS218+ flagship home two bay NAS. This is a worthy successor to the DS216+II and highly recommended.

  CONS
designStill features that odd removable front panel, instead of lockable trays.
featuresJust one LAN port mans that link aggregation is not supported.
performanceThat dual core CPU, though an x86 chip that is highly suitable as a plex media server, is just a little underwhelming for creating even a single standalone VM use.
valueIf you reduce the size of your hard drives for this NAS by even 1TB each, you can afford the more powerful DS718+.

Synology DiskStation NAS DS218+ reviews


21/04/2018 | | EU Flag |
I wish I had gone for the DS918+ as I have two high drives in the DS218+ and have to look for expansion units. Never the less, this is a good little machine more suitable for home use I think than business as you may well run out of space like I did.

The better of the 218 range from Synology. Well worth the little bit of extra cost for the CPU and RAM.

Our first NAS and loving it! We were directed towards the Synology DS218+ populated with WD Red Hard Drives based upon our local and remote requirements and it has been a smooth experience from the start. Many thanks folks!

THE SYNOLOGY 218PLAY IS PROVING TO BE A VERY GOOD HOME NAS. IT IS RETAINING OUR DATA AND ALLOWING US TO SHARE IT BETWEEN US AS WELL AS SYNCHRONISING

Hi according to the website, I can select HD and you will install it into the NAS my question is is the size to select is the total size or one HD size i.e. if I select 6GB HD do I get 2 HD with 3GB each or 2 HD with 6GB each?
The capacity shown is the total,
So if you buy a 6TB model, that would include 2x 3TB drives
