Synology DiskStation DS218play 2-bay NAS review

We tested the peak power consumption of a NAS at the wall during a run of CrystalDiskMark 5.0.2 as this version of the benchmark runs the read and write benchmark suites separately so its easier to monitor what power the device is using during each function.

To see just how low the power demands can get for the DS218play we enabled HDD Hibernation in the DSM OS. Sitting under the Hardware and Power section of DSM, HDD Hibernation allows the length of time to be set for when the drives are inactive before drive hibernation kicks in.
