This or the DS920+ recently posted about $600 Cdn post currency exchange and customs? May not matter as no longer available.


Thx!

Wow, that was quick to spot :)

Unless you want 5 bays. DS920+ is better.

For what reasons? Just the slightly faster CPU?

And DDR4 ram.
DS920+ was 440 USD before tax, 120 CAD less than this one. (Tax rate is the same)
I don't need 1 more bay, so I choose DS920+

Got it... I have been unable to pull the trigger on either due to sticker shock... been that way for years... LOL... If I get one of these (basically $700-800), I then also would need to buy a couple more hard drives ($400+tax)... and go through a long process of building up a Raid 5 on this starting with 3 disks... and then moving in a fourth once I'm able to transfer the data off of it on my old 2 drive crap NAS... ugh... that $1100+ expense plus time and hassle.... just keeps my wallet safe... But the "cool toy" side of me wants it... and knows it likely sets me up with 10 years of solid storage solution... I'm also not using RAID and only manually backing things up right now... sooooo... that is probably where RAID and automated backups might pay off at some point... hmmm...

I picked up the DS1019+ recently as well for this price. If I had a choice between the 920 vs 1019, if price was the same, I would have taken the 920 with the slightly newer CPU and newer IGPU in the UHD 600 vs 500. Also Ram like mentioned is DDR4 vs DDR3, You'll need to buy a stick to get it up to 8GB though on the 920 (or more but its unofficially supported and might void warranty?) but the 920 only has 1 slot for expansion while the 1019 has both RAM slots accessible.

Very slight differences and small performance gains so it will come down to 2 things for people, do you need that extra bay and price (since the 1019 has been replaced by the 1520 so it will go on clearance now).

Yes. Both models are very similar. I just pickup the cheaper one. $120 is a lot for me LOL
PS: 920 can do 4G+16G ram.

I've had the 1019+ since May 2019 and couldn't be happier. I much prefer the 5 bays over 4, but purchase what you need. I would put my money on a 1021+ being released next year following the trend of the 918+/1019+
:twisted: In order to save money, you must spend money. :twisted:

Get the 1019+ over the 920+.

First, the extra bay will always be handy.

Second, it comes with extra RAM, and IIRC both RAM slots are available (vs 1 soldered in the 920)

Processor speed really has very little impact for the use case you'll probably have. Ram will have a bigger impact, as extra RAM will be used for caching.

DS1019+ has 2x4G DDR3L builtin, you can replace it with max 2x8G ram.
However, for DS920+, you can get max 4G+16G ram, at cheaper price!
IMO, unless you really want extra bay, the DS920+ is better deal.
