Packaging and a Closer Look
Packaging follows what we have seen in past appliances from Synology. Brown box with Synology branding, a sticker at the top right offers model and specifications.
A secondary sticker offers model specifications along with package contents and diagram of the I/O.
Scope of delivery includes the NAS, two cat5 cables, power adapter, and accessories.
The power adapter for this unit operates at 12v 10A with 120w capacity.
The front of the NAS offers all five bays up front, each lockable. To the right, we have LEDs for Status and all five disks below a USB 3.0 port and power button.
The backside offers dual LAN on the left along with eSATA in red and USB 3.0 in blue. Dual fans keep the unit and drives cool in operation, and the Kensington lock slot secures the unit to the desk or tabletop.
On the bottom of the DS1019+ we have dual m.2 NVMe slots, each support a 2280 drive.
For testing, we are using 4x 4TB Ironwolf drives.
