What customers say about "Features"
Synology DS1618+ 24TB-IW 6-Bay NAS Solution
  • Excellent performance, I have all drive bays filled using RAID 10 (1+0) and I couldn't be happier with it.
  • Download station is a phenomenal program, VPN support on OS level for many types of tunnels, Docker is amazingly easy to use on this OS too!
  • OS is great, intuitive, and from what I have read: software RAID is actually better with Linux, upon which DSM is based vs hardware RAID.
  • Plex performance is excellent! I have transcoded 4K with no problems over my AC network from the NAS.
  • Finding the device once it was connected to my network and configuring my RAID was flawless, as was joining it to my domain and adding users/groups.
Synology DS1819+ 24TB 8-Bay NAS Solution
  • The disk management software is extremely easy to learn yet powerful.
  • Running a single 1080p Plex stream barely ticks the cpu/ram which leads me to believe this NAS could easily run quite a few streams at one time.
  • Setup is easy, the quick connect is a neat feature, and the software is absolutely top notch.
  • Its QuickConnect software allows you to access your NAS from anywhere with a custom URL that makes it easy to backup or access files from anywhere.
  • The Synology software make these units a dream to work with as they are stable and user friendly.

What customers say about "Interfaces"
Synology DS1618+ 24TB-IW 6-Bay NAS Solution
  • 4x Ethernet ports with hardware 802.1 link aggregation support, paired with my router this is fantastic!
  • It's got three USB 3 jacks on the back and one on the front, very helpful.
  • The Plex service runs with no issues, and I now have my NAS managing my USB back on its own.
  • The USB backup alone was a huge win.
  • All outputs and inputs are located very conveniently. Highly recommend.
Synology DS1819+ 24TB 8-Bay NAS Solution
  • I/O performance is great and can be even better with the 10gbe expansion card.
