Synology DiskStation DS218j overview

  • 1Description

Designed for home users who need to back up digital assets with low power consumption, the DiskStation DS218j 2-Bay NAS Enclosure from Synology is an entry-level NAS for personal cloud storage that delivers rapid data transmission, with sequential read speeds of up to 113 MB/s and sequential write speeds of up to 112 MB/s. 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 with a drive bay adapter. Using its dual 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 1024 user accounts.

The DS218j 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 1.3 GHz Marvell Armada 385 88F6820 Dual-Core and its 512MB of DDR3 RAM allows frequently-used files and applications to be quickly accessed. 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 integrated Gigabit Ethernet port, 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. The DS218j is also able to function as a multimedia solution for management, streaming, and playback.

For those who require RAID support, the DS218 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.

The DS218j 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 18.2 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 DS218j 2-Bay NAS Enclosure operates on 100-240 VAC at 50/60 Hz and includes an accessory pack, a 60W AC power adapter, a power cord, and an RJ45 LAN cable. It is protected by a limited 2-year warranty.

    Synology DiskStation DS218j reviews

    DiskStation DS218j 2-Bay NAS Enclosure is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great NAS - once it is set up! I've set up multiple attached storage devices for work. This one is for personal storage - mainly for videos and pictures. In my opinion, the instructions for setup weren't as simple as they could have been. There are lots of options, and in some cases the terminology (or descriptions of the choices) could have been clearer. However, once set up, this NAS is quick and responsive. Everything works as it should. I've only had it for about a month, but I've had experience with Synology rack mount NASes in the past and they've had excellent reliability. I look forward to the same from this device.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from NAS does the job on my home network Do not use all the capabilities of the unit.� Easy to install. Dependability is the key and will to be determined.� Replaced a DNS-323 that was long in the tooth.� For my purposes, either device is transparent after installation, so it is hard to get too excited about this addition.
