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+ RAID options

  • JBOD- is a cost-effective network storage solution. If you have a lot of temporarily data to store, JBODs are an economical solution. Mind that the data is not critical or you have an effective backup scheme in place. JBOD is either a single or number of disks which are grouped together and presented to the Operating System as a single volume, called 'Spanning'. If you lose a single disk in the JBOD then you possibly will lose data, as the concept of a JBOD does not include not fault tolerance.
  • RAID 0 is ideal for non-critical storage of data that have to be read/written at a high speed, such as on a video editing station or an image retouching. RAID 0 offers great performance, both in read and write operations. All storage capacity is used, there is no overhead.
  • RAID 1 (mirrored drive) is ideal for critical storage, like accounting systems. It is also suitable for small servers in which only two data drives will be used (disc mirroring). It offers excellent read speed and a write-speed that is comparable to that of a single drive. In case a drive fails, data do not have to be rebuild, they just have to be copied to the replacement drive (mirroring hdd ). It can be used as back up mirror.
  • Synology Hybrid RAID can combine different sized hard drives to create a storage volume. When sufficient hard drives are included, SHR allows for 1- or 2-disk redundancy.

Synology DiskStation NAS DS218+ reviews


14/06/2020 | Guest | GB Flag |
What is the maximum storage DS218+ NAS can handle?
It is better to ask SPAN for free compatibility checks. But as today you could fill it with 2X 16TB Seagate Ironwolf. This would give you a total raw storage of 32TB
13/06/2020 | 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.
12/06/2020 | 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.
11/06/2020 | Guest | GB Flag |
Can this be used as a Plex server on its own?
Yes, this NAS should have an App available to install and run Plex independently.
10/06/2020 | 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.
09/06/2020 | Guest | GB Flag |
Is there any feel for when the 220+ may be released
Very soon. Plese use "notify us" button in meantime.

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
