Synology DiskStation DS1817+ NAS Review Discussion

Recommended Posts

The DS1817+ is powered by a Quad-core 2.4GHz CPU with an AES-NI hardware encryption engine and up to 16GB in dual-channel DDR RAM. This scalable NAS solution offers up to 80TB in storage on a single system (8 x 10TB drives), which can be expanded to a healthy 180TB via expansion units. That said, the DS1817+ is somewhat of a mixed bag overall--something you don't hear very often when we review a Synology product; performance lacked in several areas where it should have excelled, which certainly due to the design flaw where the add-on card slot is poorly ventilated, thus leading to overheating and sluggish performance. Because the PCIe slot is a huge selling point for the newer Synology NAS solutions, this makes for a significant issue.
