Synology DS1019+ PROS

designUsing a very similar chassis to the DS918+, the DS1019+ gives you 5 bays of storage in a much more compact chassis that the DS1517+. Additionally the unit manages to give you all the ports, features and connections that you would expect - despite it's modest size. Plus hotswappable+lockable drive trays are a bonus too! Lastly, the cherry on the cake is the 2x NVMe slots subtly hidden in the base. Lots of functionality, all hidden in a small case.
featuresThere are not many modern applications in NAS that the DS1019+ cannot do. Supporting the very latest version of DSM 6.2 and all the first and third party applications that are on the software from Synology. You will only really hit limitations if you are looking at a NAS that can edit large media live (photo-video editors) or want to achieve upload/download above 200MB/s. Even then, internal Read/Write will be excellent and can be further improved by installing two NVMe SSD drives in a RAID 1 environment.
performanceGreat performance inside and out, thanks to that Intel J3455 Quad Core CPU and Memory that can be expanded all the way upto 8GB (or 16GB unofficially). Additionally, this device will functon exceptionally well as a Plex Media Server, surveillance platform, backup server and supports transcoding of 1080p and 4K of upto 2 streams at once. If you want to really push it, then add the SSD Media to the NVMe slots and really watch those IOPs go crazy!
valueFor 5 Bay NAS, you are getting an awful lot of bang for your buck. It is not the cheapest unit in the Synology flagship series, but it is still fantastic value for all this hardware, 3 years of warranty and constant updates. Buy this NAS if you want a good, solid amount of RAID storage and want to stay on top of your NAS needs in years to come.
Synology DS1019+ CONS

designThe plastic chassis may put some users off who were used to the metal case on the DS1517+ previously.
featuresOnly 2x RJ45 LAN and a lack of PCIe slot/10Gbe may limit some users looking to switch to 10G in their network or point to point editing in the near future.
performanceOnce again, the lack of 10Gbe potential and just the two LANs mean that the speeds you get on DAY 1 externally, will not go any higher as the years go by.
valueThe DS918+ NAS, which features 4 drives, is still lower in price than this device and with near enough identical specifications. Those on a tight budget may well want to go for the 4 bay DS918+ and spend the money saved on an extra Terabyte of storage.



General Performance

The DS1019+ unlike the TVS-951X-8G is made by Synology. People often choose Synology because of user friendly interface as well as being suited for Mac and Windows based environments. It is relatively easy to set up and use, and those who are new to Network Attached Storage are advised to go for the Synology. Unlike the TVS-951X-8G this box has the Intel Celeron J3455 Quad Core 1.5 GHz (up to 2.3 GHz) processor. Just like the TVS-951X-8G this box has 8GB RAM.

About Connections

Two USB3 ports on this Synology is offering you up to 5Gb/s transfer speeds of external devices. It is fast enough to get your files through fairly quickly with this speed and make backing up with an external drive or Apple Time Machine a quick and easy process.
