Synology DS418 overview

  • 1Description

Designed for home and office use, the DiskStation DS418 4-Bay NAS Enclosure from Synology allows users to share and synchronize files across multiple devices and public cloud storage services from virtually anywhere, while also helping to boost work productivity enhance team collaboration, and engage in real-time 4K H.265 video transcoding. It is equipped with four 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 four drive bays, this NAS will allow you to store and share a large number of files, including videos, music, photos, and documents with up to 2048 user accounts and 200 concurrent connections.

The DS418 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 1.4 GHz Realtek RTD1296 Quad-Core and its 2GB of DDR4 RAM allows frequently-used files and applications to be quickly accessed. The NAS is capable of achieving sequential read speeds of up to 226 MB/s and sequential write speeds of up to 170 MB/s, while a dedicated hardware transcoding engine can transcode 10-bit 4K H.265 video on-the-fly. Also featured are two USB 3.0 Type-A ports, which allow it to be connected to your Windows or Mac system, and network connectivity is achieved via the dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, allowing your stored data to be shared with users throughout the network and support link aggregation and failover. Data may also be made remotely available through the free iOS and Android applications. Using the integrated 4K multimedia server on the DS418, Video Station and DS video can be used to convert and play 4K videos from most computers, mobile devices and other media players that don't support Ultra HD formats.

For those who require RAID support, the DS418 supports RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, and 10, 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.

The DS418 is engineered to be energy efficient. Not only does it offer two 92 x 92mm fans to help keep the system running cool at all times, its noise dampening design of 20.9 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.

    Synology DS418 reviews

    DiskStation DS418 4-Bay NAS Enclosure is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from In love with my new backup system This is easy to use, easy to set up, and easy to access.� I have four 12tb drives in it set up as two volumes, so the first volume has mirrored drives containing my backups to the end of 2017, then I'm starting 2018 on the second volume of two mirrored drives.� So far I've easily pulled photos from it when needed, added photos easily, and set my Lightroom catalog to access these drives for the archive.� A few things require use of the web interface to set up, but that's not too hard.� Maybe not the ideal for an absolute technophobe, but if you're comfortable with a few basics you'll be golden with this system.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Synology ROCKS! Needed to expand my storage so upgraded from a DS214 to the 418. Process was very smooth and painless (but did take a while as I was adding a lot more storage in their Raid config). Synology apps and quality is outstanding - I use primarily for backup and storage of audio media and have never had any issues over many years. Highly recommended!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb piece of equipment. There were a few little bumps getting it set up the way I wanted it, but once I got over a moderate learning curve, it's exceeding my expectations.� Tech support has been terrific via online support tickets and chat windows on their web site. I have two 10TB HGST Deskstar drives configured in RAID1 and a spare 2TB WD drive I had laying around as a BASIC drive in slot three. � Synology Drive instantly syncs selected folders on my desktop system to folders I defined on the RAID volume.
    Date published: 2018-05-18
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits my needs To store photos in raw, just what I needed, easy to set up and runs very quiet and runs raid for reliability.
    Date published: 2018-07-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solves So Many Problems! Love my DS418... �it now serves as a destination for Time Machine backups from 3 Macs, a file backup for 60k photo files and as a NVR using Synology Surveillance Station. �Setup onto my home network was very easy and the DSM management software is very easy to use. �Using Synology's own SHR raid configuration to make later drive size increases easier. �The iPhone apps help extend the value to where ever I am. �Would buy again!!
    Date published: 2017-12-03
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Couldnt be easier. This thing couldnt be easier to set up. I put 4- 6TB HDDs in so I get about 16TB of storage. I just moved and all I had to do was plug it into the new router and used the Synology Assistant to find it. And then I was ready to go. My only issue is the OS is a little finicky. It takes some getting used to. Would Recommend.
    Date published: 2018-11-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surveillance Station Workhorse We loaded three 4MP cameras at 12 FPS on this unit and the CPU barely climbs above 6%. FAR better performance than the 'NVR' unit Synology features.
    Date published: 2018-10-04
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Synology DiskStation is great Fine performance and ease of use.
