Synology M.2 SSD Adapter
M2D18

Dual M.2 SSD adapter card for extraordinary cache performance

Elevate Your Storage Performance To the Next Level
Designed to supercharge your NAS I/O performance, Synology M.2 SSD adapter M2D18 significantly reduces random I/O latency, benefiting applications such as photo indexing, file search, and virtualization environments.

The dual M.2 SSD slots support both SATA and NVMe SSD, meaning higher SSD read/write caching and more primary drive bays reserved for data storage. Attachable heatsink accelerates thermal dispatching of M.2 SSD and assures system stability with excellent performance. Its flexibility in supporting 2280/2260/2242 form factors and meeting various SSD options saves you from vendor lock-in.

designAs this is a PCIe card, it is hard to comment on the design. Though I will say that the heatsink on the top is very discreet and the individual NVMe ports arrive with accessories and a heatsink for each drive in use. If what you want is a card that is balanced well between size and efficiency, this scores very well.
featuresThis is more a question for the DSM from Synology and the card is immediately picked up by the Synology NAS hardware, ready to be used for caching.
performanceVERY, VERY high performance, thanks to the NVMe support and you will see big performance jumps in virtual environments and editing over 10Gbe.
valueIt may seem a little pricey, but you will see INSANE IOPs speeds - if you care about how fast your server is going to handle and process your files, this is the card for you!

  CONS
designMy only real complaint is easy comparisons that can be made with the QNAP QM2 PCIe range of cards that arrive with the same NVMe caching support, but also much better heatsink and fan options - as well as several cards featuring NVMe and 10Gbe connectivity combined in a single card.
featuresSadly, you cannot use this super fast NVMe storage for general storage space, instead of caching - it is a shame that you are not given this option.
performanceSadly, in almost all Synology desktop that has 10Gbe AND a PCIe slot - so in almost all cases you cannot use BOTH 10gbe and this NVMe SD cache card.
valueAlways remember that the card will improve the INTERNAL speeds and will not improve your external speeds - for that you need 10Gbe connectivity.

Synology PCIe M.2 SSD Adapter M2D18 reviews


24/10/2018 | Guest | GB Flag |
Hi iv got a ds1817+ In the specs for the M2D18 it says SATA for my model.. Does this mean I cant use NVME Devices for extra IOPS on the DS1817+ and have to use M2 sata devices instead? Cheers
yes that is currently correct.
even though the M2D18 supports SATA and NVMe M.2 drives, only SATA drives will work in your DS1817+
this may change in the future.

This is a must have upgrade. Nvme speeds are amazing. IOPS go right up.
