Synology DS218+ Rear Fan
Although it is not the most powerful Synology NAS they have released in recent months, it is fair to say that the Synology DS218+ is the most popular 2-Bay they have released in a long-time. Although it features hardware that is less than that of the DS718+, what it does arrive with is an excellent Price Vs Hardware point and will give you excellent access to all the most modern software abilities of the Synology DSM Software and Apps. This is further improved with the ability to upgrade the RAM officially to 6GB and that you can connect the DX517 expansion device, though it will be seen as an independent drive. All in all, one of the most pleasing NAS releases of 2017.2GB RAM
