“Almost perfect. Buy it now before you change your mind”
Synology DiskStation DS418j

The gist:

Designed to be your own private cloud, DS418j is a 4-bay NAS where users can effectively manage, protect and share data. Network Attached Storage or NAS is a kind of computer data storage server connected in a network that allows people with permission to access its files. Equipped with its own 64-bit dual-core processor and a gig of RAM, this Synology model can support up to 40 TB single volume capacity. For security surveillance, up to 16 IP cameras can also be supported. In addition, you can even turn this NAS into a home media hub and stream your digital contents to your favorite devices such as computers, and other connected devices such as mobile phones, tablets and smart TVs. Furthermore, several RAID data storage virtualization technologies are also supported by the DiskStation DS418j.

Synology DiskStation DS418j

The bad:

Limited documentation from the box

Tools and disassembly needed to install/replace drives

Our verdict:

Known to techies as a provider of reliable NAS products, Synology storage models have also become a complete IP surveillance solutions by providing recording, monitoring, and managing IP cameras. In fact, DiskStation DS418j can be a complete stand-alone surveillance station. But aside from that great added feature, the DS418j is of course, first and foremost a NAS system that makes backing up small and large files in an uncomplicated manner. May it be on a PC, Mac, or other connected mobile devices, everything is simple to use especially with its built-in file management and sharing services, which after using, we found well-built and solid. The operating system is very intuitive and undemanding with a straightforward interface; effortlessly unleashing the DiskStation’s capabilities. You can go direct file storage or the geekier RAID (redundant array of independent disks) type of storing files, either way, the DS418j will accept your configuration. We’ve tried several “made for home” NAS devices, and so far, this was the easiest to use. Thanks to its app, the complexity of managing your own NAS at home is now as easy as turning it on.
