Product information

Pros and cons

According to our NAS expert
  • Pros:
    Thanks to the Quad-Core processor, the NAS can handle multiple heavy tasks such as streaming 4K videos and creating backups.
  • Pros:
    You can stream movies, music, and photos directly to your TV via DLNA.
  • Pros:
    With the 2 included disks, you can create RAID 0 (striping) or RAID 1 (mirroring).
  • Con:
    With RAID 0, you'll lose files in the event of a defect and with RAID 1, you only use 2TB out of 4TB.

Product description

The Synology DS218play + 4TB is a NAS bundle with 2 hard drives of 2TB. This allows you to create a RAID 0 or 1 setup, which saves your files faster or more securely. Thanks to the 1.4GHz Quad-Core processor and 1GB RAM, you can stream and transcode live 4K video files to your smart TV or console. If you install the Synology app, you can also play media on your smartphone and tablet. You can even send music from your NAS to speakers that support Google Cast. The photo software allows you to organize all your photos with labels, sort them into albums, and share your images directly with friends or family. You can access your film and photo collection in a remote browser via Synology's simple QuickConnect site.

"Fantastic NAS for the price"

  • Pros:
    Decent speed
  • Con:
    Gets erratic when running background indexation

"Best product I have purchased this year"

Robert Suarez | 20 October 2019 | In the version: NAS with no hard drives

  • Pros:
    Cost effective
  • Pros:
    Great software and storage capacity
  • Pros:
    Like look and quiet function
  • Con:
    Not as easy to install drives as the + version.

I compared multiple reviews and products and this was the best product for the cost by far. Spending more money for a higher Ram chip has no impact on my use of a NAS unless I was using more of the multimedia apps. I only need a mass storage device that is on my home wifi network.

  • Pros:

  • Pros:

The ds218play is an easy to setup NAS. The UI is easy and the number of packages present are also nice.
