I've been using different models of Synology so far, starting with DS214se to more capable 1513 and 415 and now Synology 918+ is my primary unit.Pros:- Fantastic software.

After it was running for a week I decided to make it the repository for my Silicon Dust TV tuner's recordings, and although you have to set up a dedicated folder for that, it too works perfectly to play back recordings on all my devices.I think this is a very capable and robust NAS unit.

I have 6 total cameras I want to add to this, so that's another $200 on top of the $1200+ investment that I put into this unit and the drives to go with it.

This was my first NAS and this thing is great.

Editorial Reviews

Jane's Review: Should I buy this product?

Jane's Review

Yes! I recommend this network attached storage (NAS) enclosure based on its brand popularity. Let's go over the reasons why buying this network attached storage (NAS) enclosure now is a good idea, and also things to consider before you decide on this item.

1. Synology is one of the best selling, well known network attached storage (NAS) enclosure brand!

Brands

Synology is one of the best selling brands among other network attached storage (NAS) enclosure brands. I found some YouTube videos that talk about this product, which means this is a widely known product/brand. I have attached the videos above and links in the additional research section down below, so don't forget to watch and read those!

One thing to be careful about here is that I'm not verifying if this product's maker is a household name or not. This section is more focused on whether this is proven enough by its consumers, whether people actually love this product.

2. This network attached storage (NAS) enclosure has positive reviews on the internet

Reading on Phone

Some people have a great experience with a product, while some are unlucky and get a defected item and have to go through the whole process of returning them. Since people have different experiences about a product due to various reasons, don't read too much into one good or bad review. Reading multiple reviews with different ratings can help you picture how good/bad the product generally is.

This network attached storage (NAS) enclosure has positivereviews on the internet, and based on current trends, it's likely that people will like this network attached storage (NAS) enclosure more a week later. I summarized what fans and haters say about this product above in the good/ok/bad table, so don't forget to read those since they paint the whole picture! And of course, if you want to read more detailed reviews, many of them are on Amazon!See Reviews on AmazonSee Reviews on Amazon

3. The price might go up, so buy now if you need this!

Price Chart

Price is one of the most important factors in making a purchase decision. I analyzed the price of this product in four parts: its recent price change, when it was most expensive/cheapest, its price volatility, and a price prediction I made, just in case you want to wait.

First off, let's talk about its recent price change. This product became unavailable to purchase, so it's hard to tell. However, the last price change observed between March 20, 2018 and November 10, 2019 was a 0.00% price increase. Since this product is currently unavailable, you might want to check out the list of similar products I gathered in the similar products section!

Next, we need to look at its highest price and lowest price. Historically, the highest price point for this network attached storage (NAS) enclosure was $61360.00, and the lowest price point was $240.00. The current price isn't close to either the highest or the lowest price point, so it's a fairly reasonable time to make this purchase.

What about its availability and price volatility? This is another aspect we have to dig into before buying something. This product is currently unavailable so I can't really endorse its availability, sadly. If you plan to repeatly purchase this item, I would suggest looking for a similar product or a seller who has this product with better availability! In addition, this product also has a lot of volatility in price. It's likely there are multiple sellers with varying offers, or is subject to seasonal pricing. It also may indicate that it goes on sale often!

Considering all this, will the price go up or down in a week? I know it's currently unavailable, but if this becomes available a week later, based on past price points, I expect the price to be much higher a week from now. It might be best to purchase as soon as possible before the price becomes too high.

4. Manufacturer has generally positive reviews on their other products

The maker of a product is another factor you want to definitely consider before you buy anything. What if there is a piece missing or there is some defect in the product? With anything you buy online, there is a small chance of this happening. But don't worry too much, because Amazon has an amazing 30-day refund policy (Amazon❤️). Still, you want to make sure that the manufacturer or the seller has been helpful in resolving this kind of problem and/or has been helpful to its customers about general product inquiries. The manufacturer of this product, Synology America Corp (Synology), has generally positive reviews on the internet. It's generally a good sign if the manufacturer has good reviews overall. If your purchase decision heavily involves how well they make their products and treat their customers, and if you like this product, I'd go with this product!

5. There are other options, but don't look further if you're looking for the cheapest product

Similar Brands

I found 1 brand that has similar products like this one: the same brand as this product. 'If you're looking for a cheaper alternative, then don't look further! this is your product! Among its alternatives, it's the cheapest!If you're looking for a network attached storage (NAS) enclosure with best reviews, a product from the same brand as this product gets the best score on the internet. If your primary concern is whether the product is popular and well known, a similar product from the same brand as this product I linked below is a better option. I linked all the similar products in the similar products section so please check them out! Or you can check other similar products on Amazon, too.
