When will the Synology DS1819+ NAS be Released?
This is a tricky one, as normally the new units that are uncovered at Autumn Synology launch events are not released until late in Q4 or at the top of Q1 of the following year. However, there is enough interest and demand for the DS1819+ Diskstation NAS right now that I think we might see this land in late November or even early December. Of course, this is based on hearsay and educated guesses, but at the latest, this will be available to buy at the start of 2019. Subscribe or bookmark this page to stay in the loop!
