The Synology DS218+ 2-bay diskless NAS DiskStation is down to $249.99 on Amazon. This is the first major discount we’ve seen on this DiskStation through Amazon, and it normally goes for $300 or more. The stock is delayed by a couple weeks, but it’s worth the wait at this price.
NAS systems let you create your own media server at home. If you have a lot of digital music and movies, you can use a NAS like this one to put all those files in a central location and access it from any system in your home. It’s also a good thing to have for small businesses where multiple people might need access to the same files.
The DS218+ is a two-bay NAS with 2GB DDR3 memory that’s expandable up to 6GB. It has a dual-core 2.5 GHz processor, hardware encryption, and encrypted sequential read and write speeds up to 113 MB/s and 112 MB/s respectively. It also has live transcoding for up to two concurrent 4K streams. It also has three USB 3.0 ports.
