Synology DiskStation DS1019+ 5-bay NAS Review

Rating: 8.0.

DiskStation DS1019+ is a 5-bay NAS that sits under Synology’s Personal & Home User and SMB banners, due to its positioning as a scalable NAS for small offices and IT enthusiasts. Powered by a quad-core Intel processor backed by 8GB of memory, it also packs a pair of NVMe supporting M.2 ports.


Powered by an Intel Celeron J3455 processor clocked at 1.5GHz (boost up to 2.3GHz) the DiskStation DS1019+ comes in a single 8GB memory option. The memory comes in the shape of a pair of 4GB DDR3L 1866 SO-DIMM in the two SO-DIMM slots. If you feel like you need more memory at a later date, then you are out of luck as, according to the spec sheet, 8GB is the maximum amount of memory supported.

It has an AES-NI hardware encryption engine and a hardware-accelerated transcoding engine which supports H.264 (AVC), H.265 (HEVC), MPEG-2 and VC-1 formats at a maximum resolution of 4096 x 2160 (4K) at 30fps.

Synology quotes Sequential throughput performance for the DS1019+ as up to 226MB/s for reads and 222MB/s for writes but a quick heads up, those figures are with both LAN ports being used in Link Aggregation mode.

Synology back the DS1019+ with a 3-year warranty.
