The DiskStation DX513 5-Bay Expansion Unit from Synology delivers an effortless solution for volume expansion and data backup for selected Synology DiskStation models. It seamlessly scales up the storage capacity of your DiskStation by adding 5 hard drives on the fly when connected directly to an expansion cable.

Volume Expansion & Backup
The DiskStation DX513 provides you an easy way to immediately scale capacity by adding 5 hard drives on your Synology DiskStation when you are running out of hard drive capacity. You can expand the RAID volume on your Synology DiskStation directly without having to reformat the existing hard drives and ensure that your DiskStation continues its service during the capacity expansion. It can also be used as a dedicated local backup solution for your Synology DiskStation. When created as a separate volume, it provides a great backup solution to the local hard disks in case of system failure
Reliable Plug-and-Use Design
You can connect it to your Synology DiskStation using an expansion cable with custom-designed connectors on both ends, ensuring a reliable connection and maximum throughput. The 3.0 Gb/s connection speed allows the hard drives connected in it to operate as the internal ones of Synology DiskStation
Green & Easy to Manage
Its deep sleep mode can be manually configured to take effect automatically when the system has been inactive for a period of time. This not only saves energy but also extends the lifespan of the hard disk. Furthermore, the DiskStation DX513 can automatically power on/off when paired with selected DiskStation models, so the system runs intelligently and efficiently without your intervention

      I am usinig with 1812+. As soon as I connected it is working fine. The cable is very small and it is hard to connect between different shelves.

      Hope they will give long cable in future

          This just what I needed. I'm a professional photographer and I filled up the first five drives in short order! This will bring my network storage up to 20 TB and I hope hold me over for another two or three years! The unit just sets up as another drive and will be controlled by the original Synology drive. Everything works flawlessly.

            This was my 2nd DX513 attached to a DS1512+, so I knew what to expect, the expansion process takes a considerable amount of time, i.e. approximately 4 days with five 3 TB drives plugged.

              I've had the 1010 since 2010 and quickly filled it up. The expansion unit was the next step. I'm a professional photographer and wanted a system I could save my work to that would back up and save quickly and easily. These are the best units I've seen on any market. I've had drives fail and need only to pull the bad drive and install a new one. Done, nothing lost and it's back up and working perfectly. Happy camper!

                After installing the 5 drives and connecting the unit to my DS512+ the build time was fast. Everything went smoothly and is running great. Will buy another when I need more space.

                I purchased this to expand my Synology DS1513+ NAS. Setup and installation is easy and straightforward. The unit is nice and quiet and the performance is exceptional. I'd buy another in an instant and would highly recommend this unit if you want to add additional volumes to your Synology NAS.

                I'd give it 5 stars except for the fact that its front bezel has a glossy finish rather than a matte one, as shown in the online pics. This is minor point, but it doesn't match my DS1513+ :(
