[Newegg] Synology DS1019+ 5-bay NAS ($699)

As far as I can tell the price is an all-time low.

This 5 bay NAS comes with 8GB RAM already installed, quad-core CPU, 2x1GbE ports, and 2x NVMe cache drive slots.

Does it allow connection over wifi or just only Ethernet?

Always ethernet. You can get a wifi to ethernet bridge if you have to, but I would just put it beside your cable / fiber / DSL modem.

I assume this is overkill for simple media server?

I was debating that too. While the DS1019+ has a slightly slower CPU, it comes equipped with the maximum RAM and of course has another drive bay. I’m inclined toward this one.

I've been running a DS1512+ (2012 model) but same basics. it sits with all my network switches and just acts as a shared drive.

No issues serving up files to many clients. used for NFS to ESXi, Docker VMs on ESXi, and SMB (Windows Clients). Totally fine for most home users, even better if you can aggregate the two 1G links via LACP.

Probably. Especially if the files are already in a format that doesn’t need to be transcoded. Unless your collection is massive and you want backups and raid redundancy.

Here is a great review that compares the 2.
https://nascompares.com/2020/07/28/syno ... omparison/
The summary:

Buy the DS1019+:
If you Prioritize Storage
If you Plan on Running VMs on Day 1
If you are considering RAID 6
If you plan on running more than 15 cameras in Surveillance

Buy the DS920+:
If you are in a large multi User/App environment
If you are running more graphical data
If you are on a tighter budget
If you are looking to gradually populate your NAS

If I had the money, I would love to get something like this just to "over-engineer" my set up.

I did however buy a DS218+ earlier this year as my beginner set up. And am enjoying it.

Great price on this NAS.
I'd be all over this if I didn't already have a DS918+.

My 1512+ is still trucking doing what I need it to do. Also got it on newegg, more than 6 years ago, for $439.
I run a whole separate home server on some old i7 hardware anyway so I really don't need the NAS to do anything other than traditional file server stuff.
