The DS416slim was my first real look at a Small footprint NAS platform. Taking advantage of 2.5" drives easily halved the footprint of the NAS when compared to a traditional desktop solution. With that unit starting to gather some age, Synology has chosen to make it one of the candidates for 2019's refresh cycle. Today we look at the DS419slim.

Moving on from the DS416slim, the 419slim shares much of its platform. This starts with the enclosure, which appears to be unchanged, including LED and port placement front and back. The rear of the unit still houses the four plastic drives trays with dual gigabit.

As for hardware, the Armada 385 SoC has been boosted slightly to 1.33GHz still paired with 512M of DDR3. The four drive trays support 2.5" drives either SSD or HDD. Capacity is rated at 16TB single volume using ext4, connectivity options include 2x USB 3.0 ports and 2x Gigabit Ethernet ports. Dimensions come in at 120x105x140 with a weight of .6kg, power consumption rated at 20W full tilt or 7.2 in hibernation.

MSRP of the Synology DS419slim comes in at $329.99 with a two-year warranty.
