    Synology DiskStation DS1618+ reviews

    DiskStation DS1618+ 6-Bay NAS Enclosure is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as expected and very quickly Hi, We are software developers' company at the Farber Consulting Group, Inc in NJ. We needed a NAS unit to backup all our clients' work and our windows servers and MS SQL database daily. Had 6 8TB HD Red and 256 MB cache from WD and worked like a charm. The unit is quite and it is located in our office. We intend to install 10 GbE network and change the switch box to match that speed. Regards, Doron dFarber dot com

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Issues with Win 10 and SLOW (SLOOOOOOOOOOOOW) I had high hopes for this NAS. Loaded it up with 6 x 6TB WD Red Pro drives and completed setup. TWO MAJOR ISSUES that a google search shows are VERY VERY COMMON with no good solutions. First, the Synology may or may not show up under "computers" in Win 10 Pro file explorer. If it does not, you can not directly access files on the NAS nor can you copy to the NAS directly. Second, when I was able to get the NAS under computers (seems to randomly work every now and then - I know PCs do not do this, but this NAS does), copying files is SLOW. I mean REALLY REALLY SLOW. Upload speeds are aboutr 8-11 Mbps on a 1gbit network. I'm thinking of returning all of it (NAS + Drives) but fear that could be a restocking fee (ie lose over $2000 in hardware that is useless; or lose the restocking fee) I needed to use this for my 10+/-TB of photos plus other files, videos, etc. I should have stuck with my WHS 2011 machine!
