VALUE FOR MONEY
|design||Keeping 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).|
|features||BY 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.|
|performance||Alongside 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|
|value||Easily 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.|
|design||Still not sure why they didn't update the chassis, as they have done with the DS218+|
|features||As 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+|
|performance||The 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|
|value||The 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.|
