Disk Station DS418 Play

While enjoying his extensive collection of 4K media, Lindsay Handmer wonders if there’s more to life than streaming moving pictures?

The DS418play enables you to store huge amounts of video and photos, and then easily stream them all to any device on your network (or even remotely, if you have the bandwidth) without affecting your internet connection. It also provides an extra back-up option for those day-to-day memories, and has plenty of other functionality built in.

The DS418play is built around a now slightly dated Intel Celeron J3355 dual-core CPU, which can burst up to 2.5GHz. While the CPU does include Intel Graphics, there are no HDMI outputs. The NAS comes with 2GB of RAM, plus an empty slot that can handle an additional 4GB, for a total of 6GB.
