VALUE FOR MONEY
|design||Though Synology have decided to use the older, rather retro looking Chassis that has been the model of choice for 4-bay cost-effective cases. However the contents of the DS418J are VASTLY improved!|
|features||Thanks to much better hardware inside the Synology DS418j NAS, the applications and software that the DS418 J can use fully is much, much better. Supporting 1080p, SHR, media streaming.|
|performance||Thanks to the inclusion of that 64bit dual core ARM based chip that is hugely better than the DS416J offering, performance is greatly improved and this is further enhanced by the inclusion of 1GB of DDR4 memory - twice that of the DS416J. plus it is a higher frequency DDR4 at 2133Mhz than the 1800Mhz od DDR3.|
|value||Easily one of the most game-changing 4-Bay NAS from Synology in 2017 and 2018 - A big improvement over the DS416J|
|design||It's a real shame that Synology are sticking with this case - it is hideous and with a poor method for HDD installation.|
|features||Still not ideal for a large-scale multi-user environment. Disappointing that PLEX has not yet released supported plex app.|
|performance||I still think they should have installed an Intel Atom CPU - it would have increased power consumption, but feel it would have still kept the hardware and internal spec costs at the same level.|
|value||Despite all the innovation, it is still a relatively weak when compared with the DS918+|
