Synology DiskStation DS918+ 4-bay NAS Review

Crystalmark is a useful benchmark to measure theoretical performance levels of hard drives, SSD’s and other storage devices.We are using V3.0.3.


When dealing with the small bity files of everyday use, the DS918+ showed strong and consistent performance across the tested arrays. 4K random read performance averaged out at 21.19MB/s with the peak read performance coming when the drives were in a RAID 5 array at 21.67MB/s. Write performance averaged 17.53MB/s, peaking at 18.19MB/s while in RAID 0 mode.
