The DS718+ is currently going for $309 so that makes it $130 for the drives - $65 a piece, which is a saving of about $40 total based on current deals on the reds.

I would've loved a 4+ bay at this price with 2 drives lol.

Love my Synology NAS. Just turn off auto updates after installing the first update after getting it and install them yourself after at least a few weeks/1 month. Sometimes they push out buggy updates that can be a pain to solve. Never happened to me personally, but I do see it every once in a while on their official support forums. I run a very vanilla configuration and run very few software packages, so maybe that's why I never have any major problems.

With that much storage, I would hope you're at least mirroring (RAID1).

I assume most people will use SHR with their Synology NAS.

I have a DS218+ and two 4TB WD Red drives on order from Amazon. It ends out being the same cost give or take a few bucks. This seems like a better deal, right?

718+ has a better processor; 918+ has the same processor as 718+ but has 4 bays and allows for adding SSD for better caching.

Yes, the DS718+ is worth canceling and ordering this deal. I just got my DS718+ today from the $309 deal, and also ordered two 4TB Red's from Amazon since they had a good deal and the 15% cashback. This combo deal is even sweeter than that. Wish I would have waited and saved a few bucks.

The BIG question is, that WD drives are OLD! versions??? or are really the current 4TB WD NAS versions WD40EFRX ?

Is clear that are not the PRO ones but I want to know if that are recent.

The image looks like old drive, not like this with a full red front: https://www.amazon.com/Red-4TB-NA...r=8-3&th=1

You do realize that the second and third pics on Amazon also show the old label right?

Also does the new label signify any actual change in the hardware?

I think that's good advice for just about every electronic device. nod
