VALUE FOR MONEY
|design||With 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.|
|features||The 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|
|performance||Easily 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|
|value||This 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.|
|design||The 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.|
|features||Although 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.|
|performance||Only fault I can find is that there is no 8GB Default version available to buy, as you found with the DS918+ (8GB).|
|value||It is a shame that there is no 8-Bay option with this hardware - as the DS1817+ is rather disappointing by Comparison|
