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.. :)
Unboxing time ! :)
2 LAN cables, one power plug, many hard disk screws and a pair of KEYS… KEYS ?!
My order came with a free upgrade of RAM to bring up the RAM to 4GB..
Here she comes….
What a beauty..
You can now lock your hard disks HA HA:
The screwless cabby (frankly, the shop fix the hard disks in for me.. i got to find out how to use the screwless cabby.. ha)
A Western Digital RED 3 TB hard disk peeking out of the DS1813+ :)
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)
But 6 x 3TB Western Digital RED :) :) :) :)
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..
Left side 2xUSB 3.0 and eSata
Right side. 4 LAN Ports (?!) and 4 USB ports
And the DS1813+ compared to the DS1511+ and DX510…
And in front :)
