Compared with DS2415+, DS219+ has a relatively efficient CPU and larger installed memory, presents faster speed and better sharing and backup facilities, and makes lesser noise, but it is comparatively expensive as well.
Let’s check out the similarities and differences of both these devices:
- With the same 12 drive bays, both these systems look identical.
- DS2419+ has a better CPU and larger installed memory.
- DS2415+ shows slower read-write speeds in comparison.
- Sharing capability of DS2419+ is higher than its competitor.
- DS415+ is compatible with a larger number of OS and browsing platforms.
- Warranty period is the same for these devices.
- DS2419+ show quieter performance with lower sound ratings.
- DS2415+ is a comparatively affordable NAS.
Synology DS2415+ has a clean, minimalist black layout and a high-frequency intel processor.
This NAS is suitable if you have older systems integrated into your network because it also allows relatively prior versions of different operating systems with their latest variants.
On the other side, the Synology DS2419+ looks just like its competitor but shows many functional advancements.
With larger installed memory and a better processing chip, it provides faster read-write functions.
It also offers a larger number of concurrent contentions and shared folders.

Comparing their CPU and RAMs:
CPU of DS2415+ is comparatively less efficient because it utilizes quad-core Intel Atom C2538.
This unit has a higher processing frequency (2.4 GHz) and allows the same number of threads as its competitor, yet it has a lesser single thread rating.
Moreover, its cache and PCI Express support are lower in comparison.
Also, its RAM is smaller and has only 2 GB capacity, the users can maximize it up to 6 GB.
In comparison, DS2419+ is equipped with Intel Atom C3538 quad-core, which has better specifications than the competitor’s CPU.
It shows a higher single thread rating, so it performs better functions despite the same core status.
Likewise, upgraded cache volume and PCI Express 3.0 make it a further efficient processor.
Similarly, the RAM of this NAS has double the capacity of its competitor (4GB), and if the users want, they can expand it even up to 32 GB.
Which device is faster?
DS2419+ shows a faster performance because it has an updated processing chip and RAM. Moreover, its larger installed memory further enhances the reading and writing speeds.
This device shows relatively quick responses to streaming commands as it can read the data up to 1716 Mbps speed.
Its storing efficiency is also better specifying a 671 MBps writing speed.
On the other side, DS2415+ takes relatively longer for storing and streaming purposes as its CPU is less efficient, and RAM has lesser installed capacity.
With encryption transmission, it shows 451.21 Mbps reading and 198.46 Mbps writing speed.
However, when configured at RAID 5, it performs faster with 451.5 Mbps reading and 415.49 Mbps writing pace.
|Read (Mbps)||451.5 (RAID 5) 451.21 (Encryption Transfer)||1716|
|Write (Mbps)||415.49 (RAID 5) 198.46 (Encryption Transfer)||671|
Which device has a better design?
Both gadgets characterize identical designs and dimensions.
Both are black, tower-form, 12 bay NAS showing drive trays, power button, and LED indicators at the front side, while security slot, fans, reset button, USB, expansion, console, GbE, and power port are present on the rear side.
Each of these has two cooling fans to save the device from overheating.
Similarly, link aggregation is enabled in both devices as both carry four RJ-45 Gigabit Ethernet ports.
If we talk about differences, DS2419+ weighs a few grams heavier than its competitor and has 2 USB 3.0 ports, while DS2415+ is lightweight and carries four USB 3.0 ports.
Though the layouts are very similar yet, these gadgets differ in their working ability in extreme temperatures.
DS2419+ can work in relatively colder and hotter environments compared to the contestant.
Operational humidity and storage temperature ranges for both devices are alike.
Is DS2415+’s interface better?
Synology drive is the remote storage database for DiskStation devices; regular synchronization safely backs up all of your files there.
You can easily access and stream the NAS contents through various DS applications.
Both systems offer a facility of data sync with public cloud services, but DS2415+ supports fewer platforms (Dropbox, Google Drive, Baidu, Microsoft OneDrive, Box, and hubiC) than its competitor.
On the other side, DS2419+ allows two way synchronization with Alibaba Cloud OSS, Amazon Drive, S3, Backblaze B2, MegaDisk, OpenStack, Tencent COS, WebDAV servers, and Yandex Disk, along with the services mentioned above.
With a a capacity of 12 hard disks, both are a good deal as private cloud systems but 2419+ takes the lead as it supports two M.2 adapter cards as well.
The backup suite of these devices includes a network backup and a local backup.
Due to Synology Hybrid RAID and various other modes up to RAID 10, these devices enable the user to mirror the data of one disk on the other, providing up to 6 disk-fault tolerance.
However, when it comes to sharing ability, DS2419+ takes the lead as it allows more concurrent connections and a larger number of shared folders.
It can establish up to 1000 FTP/SMB/NFS concurrent connections at a time, and for shared folder sync, it supports 16 tasks simultaneously.
In contrast, DS2415+ shows a lesser sharing efficiency as it can handle fewer connections and sharing tasks at a time.
At maximum, it allows 512 concurrent connections and supports only 8 simultaneous tasks in shared folder synchronization.
Setting them up:
These Synology systems are easy-to-configure because both have hot-swappable drive trays that can be accessed conveniently from the front.
The following steps are involved in the setup procedure;
- Unlock the drive tray and swap it out.
- Mount a 2.5″ or 3.5″ disk on it; you may need some screws and a screwdriver to lock the disk into the tray.
- After fixing the storage disk, slide the drive tray back into the drive bay.
- Power up the device and connect it with a PC or the local network.
- Use “Web assistant ” and configure (DSM) DiskStation manager, the web-based management tool for Synology NAS devices.
Operational noise comparison
When comparing these cloud storage systems for sound production, DS2415+ ranks comparatively noisier.
Its noise level marks a higher level specifying 27.8 decibels.
In contrast, DS2419+ makes less noise, and its sound production is rated at 22.3 on the decibel scale.
Do they offer Warranty:
Both these NAS come from the same DiskStation series by Synology and have the same design layout as well. Thus, both cloud systems stand equally durable.
Each of these is backed by a 3 year limited warranty from the manufacturer.
If you find fault in the device despite fair usage, the brand promises to give a replacement for it.
Which device weighs less on the wallet?
Comparatively speaking, DS2415+ is more cost-effective than its contestant.
It is reasonably priced and provides a good storage capacity and a private cloud service with efficient synchronization and backup.
Conversely, DS2419+ ranks as an expensive network-attached storage system.
But its read-write speeds, sync, share, and backup abilities are also relatively enhanced.
