Great NAS...Very Responsive...an EASY Upgrade Process from DS718+ 7/6/2020 10:36:00 AM

Pros: - Very Responsive Interface
- Upgrade from DS718+ was ++SEAMLESS++
- Adding new disks is easy
- Plug 'n Play Operation

Cons: - Process of adding new 10TB disk (SHR) can take 48 hours for checking parity scan, but this is normal for RAID or SHR management of a disk this size...10TB is a large disk.

Overall Review: - The greatest feature by far for Synology NAS products is the Disk Station Manager software and User Interface.
This feature alone provides:
-- Ease of Use
-- Confidence when managing data
-- Reduces errors since the interface is so easy to understand
-- Keeps user "out of trouble" or from making mistakes

Synology makes a SOLID product with software that is perfectly mated to the hardware, providing the user a seamless positive experience when operating the NAS.

Great Plex Player 6/28/2020 11:13:31 AM

Pros: When adding a Crucial 8GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Laptop Memory Model CT102464BF160B chip makes it a great NAS and plex player.

Cons: only two drives

Overall Review: I have a Synology DS418play for plex and needed to build another plex player for a friend I found that this was the route to go. Does the same thing as the 418play but only has two drives. Will defiantly work for what I need.

Works great 6/26/2020 8:21:05 AM

Overall Review: This is the first diskless nas that I’ve bought, so I don’t have a large pool of experience to judge this from, and I know just enough about network engineering to get myself in trouble. Having said that I found this relatively easy to set up. I struggled with somethings at first, but then I realized what steps I was missing and was able to get it done. If I’d had more experience I’m sure it would have taken no more than just a few minutes. Currently I’m using this exclusively as a Plex server and it’s preforming as I had hoped it would, can’t ask for much more.

Great product 6/26/2020 7:38:06 AM

Pros: Works well and it’s surprisingly quiet, fits anywhere with the option of installing one or two hard-drives of any size.

Cons: It’s kind of hard to setup to me at least I had to watch some YouTube videos to install for my needs and some of the apps are outdated

Overall Review: I almost returned this product because I couldn’t get it to work my way but after watching a few YouTube videos I was able to install it, I’m glad I didn’t return because now it’s exactly what I was looking for and would recommend it to anyone interested
