    Synology DS1019+ Reviews

    DiskStation DS1019+ 5-Bay NAS Enclosure is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Plex Server I purchased my DS1019+ in hopes it would be a good Plex server and storage.  I have not been disappointed. The device streams nicely to multiple devices on the local network and with transcoding when accessed remotely.  The only thing on my wish list the device does not have is 10gbs network connection or upgradable to it.  Super easy to setup and configure. I added 1tb of M.2 cache (2x512gb) as read cache.  Which seems like overkill but the cache has made a real difference in our households Plex streaming experience.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great NAS with interesting features This is a really nice, fast NAS. If you decide to opt for M.2 NVMe SSD cache, be aware that it is read-only when installing a single M.2 SSD. If you want the cache to be read-write youll have to install two M.2 NVMe SSDs. Doing so automatically creates a RAID 1 mirrored array - the cache doesnt get any larger. In my case, link aggregation of the two Ethernet ports worked in Static mode, but not in Dynamic mode when connected to a D-Link DGS-1210 Gigabit Smart Managed Switch. The Ethernet interface says its 2Gbits per second, full-duplex, but I havent measured it. Setup was fairly simple once these things were figured out. Everything has been working really well for both Mac and Windows users on the network. There are lots of apps that can be installed to add more functionality to the NAS.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Regrets With My DS1019 Purchase Having four Mac desktops and one Mac laptop -- one of the Macs and the laptop are used for business -- I decided to buy the DS1019 along with five Seagate Ironwolf 4TB drives and two Samsung 970 EVO M.2 500GB SSDs and set it up as a file, cloud, and backup server. Not only was the DS1019 easy to set up from a hardware perspective but also from a setup and configuration perspective as well. I opted to set it up in a RAID 6 configuration for maximum redundancy given Ive been a photographer for many years and have thousands of images I want to preserve and manage. My primary Macs are direct connect to the DS1019 so file transfers are lightning fast. In fact its so fast Ive actually moved all my photography libraries over to the DS1019 to offload them from my Mac. I havent noticed much difference in file read and transfer speeds so it was a bit of a no-brainer. Ive no doubt installing the two M.2 500GB cards played a significant role regarding speed. The DS1019s performance actually played into my decision when upgrading to a newer Mac desktop and so I bought one with a smaller SSD drive in favor of keeping nearly all my work files on the DS1019. Part of my decision to go with the DS1019 was to also get away from traditional clouds services and consolidate and manage everything on the DS1019 for file sharing and syncing so I had total control. I set up Cloud Station Server so I could access and sync files even when Im on the road. It works incredibly well and every bit as good as Dropbox and iCloud for how I use it. Ive set up Time Machine backups for all the Macs and, as long as you follow the instructions verbatim, it works extremely well. Its nice to have been able to consolidate all the backups to a single NAS and so no longer have a need for the external drives I had hung from each of the Macs. My only complaint about the Synology NAS, albeit a minor one, is that Macs Spotlight Search feature doesnt recognize the DS1019 so Im not able to search for files by content on the DS1019. While there are other utilities that allow for similar search capabilities such as Synologys Universal Search that runs on the server or FoxTrot as a standalone app on the Mac or PC, its not as elegant nor seamless as Spotlight. For me that isnt a showstopper, though, but would have been more of a nice-to-have as the icing on the cake. That said, that isnt a Synology limitation but rather a Mac restriction so I cant fault Synology for that. All in all the DS1019 is an incredibly capable NAS thats well suited to a household with multiple Macs and/or PCs or a small business or both like me. Id have to say this NAS has been a game-changer for me and how I manage my data.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Well! I bought this merely for 1080p movie/media file serving; to replace a DS415+. With this new box I no longer need a transcoding intermediate PC (separate media server) to server the files out; as this machine handles blu-ray level media files like a champ. Plex works fine on this box. On the old system my machine would die at 1080p 25MB per second or above.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excited with my first NAS... Although I have worked in the field of computer science for more than 20 years; It is the first time I buy a NAS for my personal use. Synology DiskStation DS1019 + 5-Bay NAS Enclosure I have only used it for 2 weeks but it has been excellent. It is not the first Synology product that I bought in 2016 to buy a Synology RT1900ac Dual-Band Wireless-AC1900 Gigabit Router and something that characterizes them is that their equipment has one of the best GUI (graphical user interface) I have seen. Extremely easy and intuitive. It only has 2 Seagate 3TB IronWolf 5900 rpm SATA III 3.5 Internal NAS HDD disks installed at the moment I am totally impressed with its performance and quality It has a wide variety of applications Video Station is excellent although Plex can be installed ( with which I have already worked) I decided to try the Video Station and it has not disappointed me, I really do not see the need to use Plex, it is definitely an excellent product, of course it is accompanied by the excellent service of B & H Photo Video.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy setup, Great for home or SMB. Transferred four disks from old Synology NAS, DSM detected drives were from a Synology NAS after DSM installed.  Used previous NAS’s setup file and DSM did the rest.  Up and running within an hour.
