Synology DiskStation DS418 4-Bay NAS Review

Office Performance


Content Creation

The content creation test simulates access to the NAS from a video creation app. The test reads and writes 98 files in varying block sizes. It performs 12 MB reads and 14 MB writes. The activity is largely non-sequential and the majority of access time is made up of writing to the drives. There are quiet periods of activity interrupted by busy periods to present the drives with a bigger workload.

Office Productivity

The office productivity simulation is very similar to the content creation. The test writes and reads 607 files to and from the drive, making up a total of 1.4GB data. The majority of write access is made up of 1 kb writes.

Photo Album

You NAS will only load the images currently shown on the screen and then continue to load more as you scroll and they become visible. This test is meant to show how fast the NAS can fetch the new images.

The photo album used contains 169 photos with varying file size to simulate dimension, quality, and detail differences. It sounds like a simple task, but it puts an unusual read load on your drives. It reads Metadata, constructs a thumbnail, and shows the image.
