    Synology's DS918+ is a top-performing, but pricey four-bay NAS that could make good use of a 10 GbE port.

    Great review as always. Thanks for specifically calling them out on the lack of 10gbit ethernet. I'd love to throw my money at this as I'm looking for a 4-5 port box like this to move my media discs out of my primary PC but it just doesn't make sense to have a performant box with the bottleneck of 1gbit ethernet connection. Full consumer cards now cost less than $100 so I can't image it would add significant cost to add it in place of the 1gbit chip. Even if it did cost them $100 more for some reason, I'd gladly pay that much more over a similar box with the 1gbit bottleneck.
