designIt 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!
featuresThis 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.
performanceThanks 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
valueIt 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

  CONS
designStill no LCD panel.
featuresFantastic 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.
performanceI 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)
valueThe price will definitely put the more budget buyer off

Synology DiskStation NAS DS3018xs 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.
  • RAID 5 combines efficient storage with excellent security and decent performance. It is ideal for file and application servers that have a limited number of data drives. Very fast read data transactions while write data transactions are bit slower. In case if drive fails, you still have access to all data, even while the failed drive is being replaced and system rebuilds the data on the new drive.
  • RAID 6 combines efficient storage with excellent security and decent performance. Similar to RAID 5, read data transactions are very fast. Two drives can fail and you still have access to all data, even while the failed drives are being replaced. It makes it more secure.
  • RAID 10 combines pros and cons of RAID 0 and RAID 1 in one single system. If one drive fails, the rebuild time is very fast because data being copied from the surviving mirror to a new drive.

Synology DiskStation NAS DS3018xs reviews

Very useful to have an expansion kit for extra storage. Saved us having to buy an entirely new NAS, reconfigure things etc..... Instead we bought this, fitted 3 more drives and have room for expansion as needed. We are running on a separate RAID controlled by the main NAS although I know there are other options.

8GB RAM ECC RAM (that's automatic error correction) - never restarting NAS. Intel Pentium D1508 Dual Core 2.2 GHz 2.2 (base) / 2.6 (turbo) GHz processing unit. That's fast ! And on top of that 5yr Warranty- and not just regular one- Synology will actually send you out replacement NAS all for free before you even send yours. That's is enterprise level NAS on your desktop. Great innovation!

Will this unit be good for 4k transcoding and surveillance? Thank you.
This is very powerfull NAS. It will do  4k transcoding and surveillance, virtual machines and plex server all at the same time and not gonna get tired. It also comes with free Synology replacement service included for 5 years.

How does this cpu will handle with Plex Transcoding and with 4k? How this unit compare to QNAP TVS-873?
The CPU featured in the Synology DS3018xs will be very, very well suited for PLEX and will in all likelihood be superior to the AMD featured in the QNAP TVS-873. However the DS3018xs will be tailered more towards the file server community and not media - meaning the price will be noticably higher when the Prices+Availability are published. If you are on a tighter budget and/or need something much, much sooner, I would recommend The QNAP TVS-873 https://www.span.com/product/Qnap-Desktop-NAS-TVS-873-8G-8-Bay-RAID-0-1-5-6-8GB-RAM-+-USB-QuickAccess~59550
