  PROS
designWith a newly created chassis released with improved ventilation, but still managing to keep compact (even introducing new hardware inside) this is by FAR the best Synology design yet. A welcome improvement to the old DS916+ chassis.
featuresThe Synology DS918+ NAS will do it all. If you need a NAS to watch and transcode 4K, Run several VMs, Apple time machine backups, host a plex media server, run an itunes server, run a business from, run surveillance cameras over the network, provide a CRM and CMS system, as well as host several websites - The DS918+ is the NAS server for you
performanceEasily one of the best performing Synology NAS devices available for home and small business users. Also if the default hardware isn't enough, this is the easiest to upgrade, featuring RAM upgrades and NVMe slots
valueThis could possible be the best NAS of the year. We still have a couple of months before we can truly decide, but for this price and the HUGE amount of software and hardware option in the price threshold make it irresistible.

  CONS
designThe two rear fans, though fully controllable, cannot be completely switched off and this may annoy some people. However any noise they make on their lowest setting is still lower than the HDD you have installed.
featuresAlthough it can do many of these tasks at once, if you need to do ALL of them at once, you will need a solid Intel Xeon at the least.
performanceOnly fault I can find is that there is no 8GB Default version available to buy, as you found with the DS918+ (8GB).
valueIt is a shame that there is no 8-Bay option with this hardware - as the DS1817+ is rather disappointing by Comparison

I am using id as photo editing storage device. Dual LAN ensures other people in the office are getting best speed possible.
27/07/2018 | | GB Flag |
I use High Availability function with two of these! My business can not afford even 1 seconds downtime or service slowdown. Normally if your drive blows, it might take a day until replacement drive will be syncronised and there will be a slight slowdown of performance. If your NAS is broken, you need to slide old drive into a new unit this might take some time especially if you don't have replacement unit.

With two Synologies set up in High availability mode, if one is gone other one will take over in matter of 2 milliseconds. None of the users will even notice that their data actually being served by other NAS. This is what i understand PRO stuff.

hi DS918+ what is the ssd that you can put in 2 spaces your you tube vid says ?? 2 times m.2 NVMEs i want to go to 8GB memory I want to hot swap if my WD6TB drives fail. can I set up a RAID so that there is always up 2 discs that can fail. or call me 07768593979
The x2 ssd are for M.2 Nvme drives and are used for cache. As of Raid - SHR2 or Raid 6 would suit your needs

I think I must have read everything there was to read about the DS918+ from Synology before I finally settled on buying it from Worldspan complete with 16TB of WD Red Harddrives and 2 m.2 NVMEs. I watched videos on Youtube read comparison sites a plenty and it was Robbie at Nascompares who finally pointed me in the right direction to Worldspan. He said I would get reassurance and any answers to any questions that I may have and he was spot on. I finally had my new NAS delivered last week and I cannot be more pleased. I know that if I have any questions or problems I can go back to them for advice. I would recommend this route to anyone else out there looking. Overthink and then end up here!

A very good alround machine

I have two friends with the DS918+ who rave about it so figured it was time to join the club! I am running CCTV storage, PLEX and general storage on it. I will probably recommend it to two more friends (I am sure this is how pyramid schemes start.....! ;) )

Good job fellas. DS918 8GB arrived well built, tested and good to go.

Totally set up with this 918+. This is the uber 4 bay option from Synology, the support on it is excellent, fully capable of pretty much anything thrown at it, handles and runs beautifully.

So so happy with the DS918+! Runs our home data, kids movies, p/t home business, the works. The Synology User Interface is very friendly, perfect for us NAS newbies. A couple of friends already have this model and their recommendation was spot on.

Synology ds918+ plex works just great. This video transcoding engine really gives this extra push.

If more VMs needed I would do ds918+ ram upgrade

Unbelievable innovation from Synology. NVME with its crazy fast speeds speed up massively internal operations. This is definitely be best selling NAS of 2018!

NVMe speed is over 2000 MB/s that's more than 5 times faster than regular SSD.
