Altho i wish it had the quad core its still plenty powerful for the best $250 - $300 nas you will find. Anyone on fence on waiting on a nas shld jump on this. Even if just for surveillance or media library functionality you'l get your $$ worth in no time. Then theres countless other value added features that ALL WORK almost effortlessly

Remember hardware is only 1/2 the battle, without solid & efficient software u got nothin but paper specs. This will crush most (even the quad core / 8-16GB ram) nas from other vendors (and u can upgrade the RAM if you want)

Im using:
NTP server
Dns server
Radius server
LDAP seever (for my lab )
Suerveillance (kills even most cam company nvr's!)
File server
Median / movie server (for my shield tv, apple tv, roku, airplay, dlna hosts)
Photo station (automatic geofence phone pic uploads from households apple devices)
Cloud server
Mac backups / time machine
Vmware esxi / vsphere storage - all my vm's and data live on the synology, vmware esxi server has no local storage (iscsi / nfs mounted to vmware)
Auto usb flash / thumb drive backups (incremental)
Ftp server

And prob much more stuff i forgot im using

Been using my 212+ for the last ~7 years. As a person who frequently buys new gadgets the Synology diskstation is one of the best products I bought that I still feel no need to replace. It just works.

Thanks! Been waiting for the 218+. TU!

According to ccc, this is the lowest price on amazon ever.

I also picked up a pair of WD Red 4TB drives for $110 each. Not the lowest price I've ever seen (I think that was around $100), but the DS218+ is useless without disks and I thought this was a fair price.

I've had my Synology DS213j for almost 4 years now. I mainly use it to store all my RAW image files and access them via Lightroom.

Awesome NAS. Been using this for over a year now with those shucked whites from Easystores. Zero drops, zero complaints.

Anyone know what other retailer is selling this for $250? I couldn't figure it out with a quick google search. In my experience, Amazon only price matches other retailers and rarely cuts prices except a few times a year.

Synology Nas devices almost never go on sale since they build such a quality product they don't need to.

Tempted to get this since I love my 918+ so much.
