DS918+ or DS220+

So 4bay or 2bay system for a home NAS setup. What are your views? I have a DS118 with a 4TB HDD which is almost full.

Not sure if I am in the data hoarding phase yet, but that's something on my mind, currently. 

Currently my needs are Plex with possibly more 4K viewing, home surveillance storage (Eufy) and the usual photos and files.

Both models being in the 'plus' model range will handle plex quite easy. It depends how much transcoding is required and at what resolution. If you want a couple people in your house to be able to watch 4k content that's transcoded on the fly, the 220+ may struggle a bit due to the lower spec CPU, especially once you consider other background tasks. 

If its just you however, the 220+ will probably do the trick.
