SHR provides 1 to 2-disk redundancy to safeguard your data during drive failures.

Cost-effective
SHR maximizes the data capacity of your RAID when different sizes of HDDs are used. Calculate your RAID needs.

Easy Management
For novice users who have no technical background and still want to protect their data using RAID technology, a convenient installation wizard will guide you through all the steps during your first installation.

Scalability
You can add new disks on the fly in Storage Manager with a simple click..

Flexibility
While creating a volume, you can plan ahead and leave empty and unallocated space for future usage.


Easy file access with QuickConnect
Access files on your Synology NAS over the Internet without the hassle of setting up port forwarding rules, DDNS, or other complicated network settings.

  PROS
designUnlike the DS218PLAY, the new 4-bay DS418PLAY features a brand new external chassis, dual LAN ports for improved data transmission in the box and lockable HDD Trays - the DS418PLAY is a vastly better built unit that then DS416PLAY.
featuresLike the other 2018 PLAY series NAS, this device is a big jump in applications and ability over the old DS416PLAY. Additionally though it arrives with better multimedia and bussiness application support. With everything from 4K to BTRFS included - these are typically top-tier functions that are now available in this slightly lower price NAS.
performanceDefinitely performing better than it's predecessor, the DS418PLAY arrives with a solid J Series Intel CPU and 2GB of Memory. A much bigger jump than the DS416PLAY - Twice the power really.
valueNow that media is getting bigger (both in size and resolution) it is becoming more and more common for people to buy 4-Bay NAS servers for their space and RAID security. This is certainly a solid choice for those looking for a strong, reliable multimedia NAS for 1080p and 4K

  CONS
designStill lacking both an SD Card reader or an HDMI port. Come on Synology, give us what we want!
featuresHardware transcoding engine would take the strain off the CPU
performanceSeems odd that they didn't go for a Quad Core, as the non-PLAY and non-Plus NAS all seem to feature a quad core CPU (ARM based though)
valueThe quad-core CPU could have been useful for those who want to push their NAS to the limits.

Synology DiskStation NAS DS418play reviews


21/04/2018 | | EU Flag |
I wanted a NAS to run PLEX and was deciding between the DS418play and the DS918+. I was advised (correctly) that for our needs (mainly just movies via PLEX) that the two were pretty much on par and therefore saved me some decent money. Honest sellers who aren't just out for the quick money grab.
17/04/2018 | | EU Flag |
Arrived fully built and tested. A little bit of a false start in getting the correct RAID organised but all came good in the end.
15/04/2018 | | EU Flag |
We moved from WD NAS to Synology. Best decision. So many issues with the ancient WD and such smooth running with this version.
11/04/2018 | | EU Flag |
DS418play is proving to be a very easy to use NAS. Both is how the applications work and the operating system.
07/04/2018 | | EU Flag |
It was a choice between this and DS918+. I really wanted the DS918 version but having spoken with Steve and discussed my requirements, Span managed to save me money by pointing me towards this one (possibly a little too directly!) but now I can see they were right. I was able to buy the larger size HDs that I wanted. Good shove Steve. Good shove.

I am looking to start using PLEX in the future whilst adding capacity from my 2 bay NAS and this allows for it as well as room to grow.

My first 4K transcoding enabled NAS and what a difference it made! Lots of lovely media focused apps on the Synology website. Wish I had jumped in sooner.

We have upgraded to the DS418play from the DS416play (double the cache and improved CPU) for handling our home media (of which we have rather a lot!!) Kids constantly streaming music, other half video editing and me sitting quietly in the corner with noise cancelling headphones watching a movie. Bliss!

I have many people watching full HD videos in my home. I am even able to watch them from work. No problems at all.
11/10/2017 | | GB Flag |
Just pushed this box to its limits. It can transcode (yes you heard it right- not simply stream, but trans-code) 4 simultaneous streams at the same time. That is more than size of my family. So all of us can store our 4K videos from Iphones on DS418PLAY media server and watch them at the same time when visiting friends- like youtube, but private. ANd there will be no problem with file size and playing it. If you still prefer 1080P full hd video format that probably yo can transcode 10 streams at the time. That is a lot of power. If this sounds like overkill- you can go ds218+ or later ds218play.

File tested with:
Size: 644.9MB
Format: MP4
Original resolution: 3840x2160
video codec: HEVC
Audio: AAC_lc stereo
Bitrate: 36917.6Kbps
FPS: 24

Got it today and I am very pleased. I didn't know that instead of one 4k video stream I can do 2 simultaneously. So my wife can watch hears and I can do mine. Before with previous model I could not watch videos on my phone. But this new one comes with a built in trans-coder - co I can watch even outside over 3G. Home multimedia center must have.
02/10/2017 | | GB Flag |
Finally new 4 bay multimedia NAS is out. It has 4K video transcode engine built on board - so it doesn't use so important CPU power.
