Synology DiskStation DS1817+ (8GB) 8-bay NAS Review



The front of the Synology box has a label in the top left corner with an image of the drive on it along with the unit version and which memory model it is. Under this image is a row of five icons describing the CPU, the number of LAN ports, options for the PCIe slot and the fact that the DS1817+ supports the Btrfs file system.

The rear of the box has a label in the bottom left with front and rear images of the unit along with a numbered list of its features and ports.


Both sides of the box feature a row of feature icons along the bottom. One side these display icons for File Sharing, Anywhere Access, Cloud Synchronization and Virtualization Ready while the other side features Mobile Management, Surveillance, Backup and Data Security.


The box bundle is a simple affair with just a mains cable, a pair of good quality Ethernet cables, two keys for the drive bay locks and mounting screws if 2.5in drives are being used. There also Quick Installation guide included.
