    Can't do anything but stick with previous positive speakers about the product. Nothing to add at all except an oh so vital thing, at least for me personally: Head's up that it does not (always) manage to stream 4K movies via your local network, in Plex! Run gigabit and 3x 7,200 RPM hard drives in Raid 5. The movie files for large pallets are simply not the CPU. Just google about it and there is more info about it, for example here: https://forums.plex.tv/t/hardware-acceleration-problem-on-synology-ds918/214246/6 and https: //www.windowscentral .com / Synology counter station-ds918-good NAS plex 4k playback Apparently a well-known problem that I didn't know before I bought it, a bit boring. However, it works fine with Kodi (instead of Plex). Codec has never failed me. Still think that for 6k you could have got a NAS where CPUn pallet with the transcoding better, otherwise it would have gotten 10/10.

      Good NAS for storage when more and more streaming services choose exclusive content, but also for other personal storage. Use this for Plex and Infuse. Plex itself has some problems, especially when you choose to connect the NAS via VPN. It is possible to run extremely much with the NAS and "hands-down" to Synology for adding a lot of good services, ranging from Mail server, DNS server, RADIUS server, AD server to "Download Station". Also runs Docker with containers like Pihole etc. - Could have been easier to configure certain services Demo for DSM: https://demo.synology.com/sv-se

        negative: - Get full volume encryption (per share encryption has lots of limitations, and metadata is stored unencrypted in any case) Positively: + Simple administration + Good maintenance plan (eg get mail that tells us that the disks still have it okay) + Can service most things + Dock support + Quiet After power failure, it starts up with full disk check (was offline for a few hours once). I have therefore invested in a small UPS. Feels better so.

          This is a really good product. It is especially good for small businesses or for enthusiasts who want incredibly good performance and many choices. It has a good and practical design and it performs really well, especially in combination with a router that supports link aggregation. The cream on the mash supports dual PCIe SSDs that make it a true performance sample. Synology software is also really powerful and at the same time simple and reliable. I never need to worry about it and it's easy to configure it. Synology has several significantly cheaper models. However, if you are looking for the best, it is hard to beat this one. I'm really pleased.

            Synology DS918 + is a very nice NAS, a good buy for the IT enthusiast. The 2018 models have a new better chassis and hard disk drive than on the DS916 + precursor. Good to know: Officially, it is possible to expand to 8gb frame but it should be possible to upgrade to 16gb ram according to unofficial sources, such as: https://forum.synology.com/enu/viewtopic.php?t=136028 NOTE! Read carefully which modules are working, I bought the Corsair CMSA16GX3M2C1866C11 and they did not work in DS918 + even though they have exactly the same specifications 204pin DDR3L 1866mhz sodimmon non ecc etc. as other memories reported to work! The m.2 ssd hard drives can not be used as their own volumes, but only as ssd cache. It requires two ssd for read and write cache, with an ssd being the only read cache.
