  PROS
designKeeping the older chassis from the previous unit DS716+II is a smart move. The result is that costs are being kept VERY close to that of the previous unit. It is both compact, cool and quiet (though the noise of the drives should always be kept into consideration).
featuresBY FAR the most powerful and able 2-Bay from Synology and at this price level, it is VERY hard to beat. It can do EVERYTHING - Trancode 4K, Run as a Plex Media Server with transcoding, host a few virtual machines, store images in apple time machine - every thing most people need a NAS for, this unit can do it.
performanceAlongside the ability to perform all of the tasks you need from a NAS server in 2017 and 2018, you will have the high speed of read and write from the dual LAN ports. As well as supporting both the BTRFS files system and the SHR configuration - both of which vastly improve your performance and integrity of your data
valueEasily one of the best NAS servers of 2017. It has the power, the price and the compact size to fulfil your NAS needs and provide an ample storage solution.

  CONS
designStill not sure why they didn't update the chassis, as they have done with the DS218+
featuresAs it is just a 2-Bay, you will need to buy the DX517 to expand to higher than 2 HDD/SSD. If you need more than 2 bays for immediate storage, go for the DS918+
performanceThe RAM can only be expanded to 6GB - As apposed to 8GB as you might expect. The 4GB Memory upgrade is available from Synology, but still a shame you cannot officially exceed the 6GB Memory
valueThe only real negative for me was that the price is only £60-70 lower than the DS918+ 4-Bay, which features NVMe SSD storage on top and 4GB of goes upto 8GB.

Synology DiskStation NAS DS718+ reviews


05/08/2018 | Jonny | GB Flag |
How do you connect the NAS (Synology 718+) to a local PC via Ethernet using the LAN 2 Port as well as having it connected to the network via the router on the LAN 1 Port? This would give me higher connection speeds on the local machine. What settings do I need to change? Do you have an idiosyncratic guide as I’m not an network engineer?

You would need to set your IP address to static/manual on both the NAS and your PC - This might give you better connection but it’s the same connection speed through your router. Please keep in mind that if you connect directly through to your NAS you may not have connection to the rest of your network - It would be much easier for you to connect your PC and the NAS to the router.

Soon they will announce DS719+ with a release probably around Christmas. DS719+ will probably have no major changes (i hope at least nvme cache or 10gbe- but unlikely) just another number on the front panel. They might put in more energy saving CPU like Synology tend to do so far. Will be interesting to see comparison between 718+ and 719+ .

Good service from Worldspan, cannont recommend highly enough. I purchased the wrong NAS for my needs (DS218+) and they took it back and replaced it with the DS718+ (much more appropriate) without drama.

Oh now this is a good NAS! Much more bang for your $$ than you might expect from such a small device! Intel Celeron Quad Core J series moves this along very nicely indeedy.

Same as 918+ powerful enough to d most things. Great choice if you don't need 4 drives.
18/08/2017 | | GB Flag |
DS716+II Intel Celeron N3160 VS DS718+ Intel Celeron J3455

Frequency: DS718+ has 1.50 GHz CPU (slower Frequency)
GPU: DS718+ Intel HD Graphics 500 (not 400)
DS718+ Decodes Codec h265 10bit and Codec VP9 - DS716+II didn't
DS718+ has DDR3-1866, DDR4-2400 Memory
DS718+ has 6 PCIe lanes (not 4)
DS718+ CPU released on Q3/2016 (previous model- Q1/2016)
In average new CPU will be 20% faster.
