Synology DS1813+ Unboxing

Yippee. Finally I can get myself an upgrade to the current NAS that I am using. Currently I am on the Synology DS1511+ and DX510. Now I have got the Synology DS1813+ !!

The latest in the range of 8 bay (DS1813+ = DS 18 maximum bays.. 8 in the main unit and 10 more in the expansion units if you buy ..) and released in 2013 (that’s why there is a 13 in the model number) and a “+” = supposedly to be better in performance.. ๐Ÿ™‚

This is the first time I am going to use WD RED hard disks in my NAS. Previously I was using Seagate (and not the NAS version)

Not one…

Back view.. I read somewhere that the fans can be removed.. much easier (if that’s the case) for cleaning ! I had a hard time cleaning my current NAS..
