The Synology DS1618+ is an NAS for small and medium-sized businesses. Thanks to the 2.1GHz Quad-Core processor and the 4GB of RAM, this network drive can handle several demanding tasks at once. This means you can make a backup of all your important documents, while also recording images from the surveillance cameras in your business. Because you can mount up to 6 hard drives in this NAS, you'll always have sufficient storage space. Thanks to RAID, your files are also safe. Manage the performance of your NAS with the Synology DSM software, and use it to update the firmware, manage your media collection, and install all kinds of extra apps such as Surveillance Station to store images from your IP cameras. Share files from your USB flash drive or external hard drive in your network via one of the 3 USB 3.0 ports.

I bought this Synology DS1817+ 8Gb to replace a Synology DS1815+ which suddenly broke down. I ordered and chose Same Day Delivery, and the same night I was able to replace the faulty unit.
Migration went very smoothly, move the 8 harddisks from the old unit to the new one, and upon startup the request came up whether I wanted to migrate. The rest went mostly automatically.
All in all happy of the DS181x+ series, good software, good hardware, good way to recycle old harddisks. Pity the old one broke down, but it will be replaced under warranty.
