Every year, like many NAS vendors, Synology updates its product lineup. This year we have seen a few new models come into the picture with DS119j and DS1819+ being added in late '18 and DS2419+ being added in February. Following that mid-February launch, that same day Synology introduced the DS1019+, today we have it in house.

The 1019+ is a five-bay NAS platform built on the Apollo Lake architecture, this platform has been in use for a few years at this point with products like the 918+,718+ and 218+ taking advantage of it. With the 1019+, we were hoping for a jump into Gemini Lake and improved AES-NI throughput along with support for DDR4 and USB 3.1.

While this didn't come to fruition, we did get a few upgrades, the first being the added drive bay. While this doesn't seem like much it has the ability to add 14TB of storage to your array. The second upgrade fresh from the factory is doubling of the memory from 4GB in the 918 to 8GB in the 1019+.


The rest of the specs shake down like this; Celeron J3455 Quad Core 1.5GHz boost up to 2.3GHz, supports Hardware encryption and transcoding. 8GB of DDR3L over two slots so 2x4GB from the factory, this can be upgraded by the user if needed. Again, five bays supporting both 2.5" and 3.5" HDD and SSD, Dual m.2 NVMe on the bottom of the unit for cache, dual RJ45 Gbe ports, dual USB 3.0 port and a single eSATA for the Synology drive expansion.

MSRP of the Five-Bay Synology DS1019+ comes in at $649.99 with a three-year warranty.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Tyler Bernath

Growing up in a small farm town in northern Ohio, technology was never around unless it was in a tractor. At the early age of nine years old, my parents brought home our very first PC and I was instantly hooked and quickly learned what it meant to format a hard drive, spending many nights reinstalling Windows 95 as my parents slept. As I grew up, many things changed around me, but my love and enthusiast nature always kept my PC at my side. Eager to get deeper into technology, I started reviewing products.
