VALUE FOR MONEY
|design||It is very interesting to see what Synology have done with the design on the DS3018xs. They have a very well known chassis design and rather than making a completely new one (as QNAP have been known to do with new product ranges and series) they have created a chassis almost identical to previous diskstation NAS, but this one is wider and can hold 6x HDD or SSD. This makes it look very similar to the DS1517+ and DS1517+ - But this one is so, so much more powerful!|
|features||This is possibly the most powerful Synology Diskstation NAS ever made (with the possible exception of the DS3617xs). It can do ANYTHING that you need a NAS to perform. However the features and abilities of this device do not stop internally. This unit arrives with a 5 Year Warranty and the SRS - Synology Replacement Service. That means that If you have a hardware issue during the first years of you owning it, they will send a fast replacement. Likewise the 5 year warranty is a huge bonus for business users.|
|performance||Thanks to a Intel D and DDR4 ECC Memory, this unit performs insanely well. Plus the unit has a PCIe slot for adding upgrade cards - this means that file operations and iOps are can be made incredibly high. This is truly the NAS to beat|
|value||It is really hard to fault the Synology DS3018xs - it is seemingly the NAS that is teh evolution of everything Synology have done in the past 5 years. Almost every industry standard (software and hardware) have been exceeded on this unit. This is easily in the top 10 NAS of 2017 and 2018|
|design||Still no LCD panel.|
|features||Fantastic features that push the boundaries of the DSM software - however the CPU at this time has not been hugely bench tested outside of the NAS, so hard to know it's full potential at this time.|
|performance||I know it is a silly complaint - but the lack of any kind of non-network access (such as Thunderbolt or Direct attached access like that of the QNAP TVS-673)|
|value||The price will definitely put the more budget buyer off|
