Synology DS718+ overview

  • 1Description

Built with a quad-core processor, an AES-NI hardware encryption engine, Btrfs file system support, and real-time 1080p/Cinema 4K video transcoding, the DiskStation DS718+ 2-Bay NAS Enclosure from Synology is designed for those who need a high-performance NAS that has been optimized for not only intensive workloads, centralizing data backups, and storing UHD media content, but also to safeguard data and deliver fast file transfer speeds It is equipped with two drive bays that are capable of natively supporting 3.5" SATA hard drives, as well as 2.5" SATA hard drives and SSDs. Using its two drive bays, this NAS will allow you to store and share many files, including videos, music, photos, and documents with up to 2048 user accounts and 500 maximum concurrent connections.

The DS718+ runs on Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM) OS, which is a browser-based operating system which helps to simplify managing your Synology NAS. Its CPU is a 1.5 GHz Intel Celeron J3455 Quad-Core with a burst frequency of up to 2.3 GHz, and its 2GB of DDR3L RAM, which be upgraded to 6GB, allows frequently-used files and applications to be quickly accessed. The NAS can achieve encrypted read speeds of up to 226 MB/s and encrypted write speeds of up to 184 MB/s, while a dedicated hardware transcoding engine can transcode two-channel H.264 (AVC), H.265 (HEVC), MPEG-2, and VC-1 video at resolutions up to 4096 x 2160 at up to 30 fps via Video Station and DS video. This allows 4K videos to be converted and played on-the-fly on devices that do not natively support Ultra HD formats.

Also featured are three USB 3.0 Type-A ports and eSATA port which allow it to be connected to your Windows or Mac system, and network connectivity is achieved via the dual Gigabit Ethernet ports that support Link Aggregation and Failover, allowing your stored data to be shared with users throughout the network. Data may also be made remotely available through the free iOS and Android applications. For those who require RAID support, the DS718+ supports RAID 0 and 1, as well Synology Hybrid RAID and Basic RAID, each of which offers performance, data redundancy, or a combination of both. For those who do not require a RAID, JBOD is also available, allowing each drive bay to be individually utilized. Additionally, once connected to a DX517 expansion unit, RAID 5, 6, and 10 are also supported.

The DS718+ is engineered to be energy efficient. Not only does it offer a 92 x 92mm fan to help keep the system running cool at all times, its noise dampening design of 18.4 dB(A) makes for quiet operations. The server supports numerous scheduled power on/off cycles and hard drive hibernation to further minimize power consumption and operation expenses.

The Synology DiskStation DS718+ 2-Bay NAS Enclosure operates on 100-240 VAC at 50/60 Hz and includes an accessory pack, a 65W AC power adapter, a power cord, and two RJ45 LAN cables. It is protected by a limited 3-year warranty.

    Synology DS718+ reviews

    DiskStation DS718+ 2-Bay NAS Enclosure is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great NAS I've owned six or seven Synology products throughout the years.� Their software and interface have always been easy to use, but haven't always felt their 2-bay NAS product specs; specifically CPU and memory were up to par compared to the technology improvements on PCs, Laptops and mobile devices.� I've been using the 718+ for a couple of weeks now and it's been the speediest Synology NAS I've used to date.� Accessing the NAS from a PC, importing photos from a PC or viewing them from DS Photo Mobile and recording and playing videos from Surveillance Station have all been flawless.� I bought the additional 4 GBs of RAM, but this took over a week longer to arrive,� I've since installed the RAM, bringing the total memory to 6 GBs, but the CPU and memory performance worked well running at the default 2 GBs.� PS - BH Photo & Video gets 5 stars as well, but no surprise here.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great NAS I am very Happy with the unit.� It is very fast. The software is easy to use.� Shipping from B&H Photo was same day, Recommend checking Synology Web Site's compatibility listing for drives before purchasing them. Please note that if you want to do SSD Caching you either need the 4 Bay version or the add-on expansion unit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The great "little box" I got the Synology DS 718+ for storage and backup. The device is compact, but the functionality is great. I upgraded the ram to 16GB, with 8 GB allocated to a virtual machine. It can also be setup for remote access. I am still exploring the possibilities with this great "little box".
    Date published: 2018-02-20
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upgraded From DS-216J It's everything I expected. The 2 gig RAM needs to be upgraded to 6 gig. The DS-216J was under powered what I was doing.
    Date published: 2018-03-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice little machine I bought this for a 4 camera server and media server and it does both very well simultaneously. I want to eventually use this NAS for other things but I am still trying to learn all about it. I have only had it for a few weeks now and haven't had time to explore some of the other things it can do. It is a little more techier than what I thought it would be but there are lots of articles available to help.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best 2-bay NAS I already own a Synology (DS215J) before buying this one so I can't compare to other brand but what I can say it that it's much much faster than my previous.� It does everything I want in a couple of milliseconds (except transcoding videos).� With the of 8Go RAM (which gives me a total of 10Go) the NAS is never overload and it's really appreciate. IMO, it worth it's price !
    Date published: 2018-01-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great & Easy it is easy to set up, works great, synology has some great apps. I use it for backup of some mackbook pro' and for Surveillance Station that works great is easier to use than Ben's Software Security Spy-about the best for the Mac. With Surveillance Station i have greater secure access to video without port forwarding.
    Date published: 2018-08-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Don't let such a little box fool you. �It is PACKED with capability and performance. �The outstanding feature is the software. �One can do time machine backups to it, host a website, use it as a near line storage repository, and much much much more. �And.. �given all that, it's not that expensive.
