The Synology DS1019+ 5-Bay NAS has gone down by $100 (before discount) helping improve the value proposition slightly against the 4-bay equivalent (and popular) DS918+ with only a $280 premium this time (vs $300 before). For comparison with the other 4-bay NAS offerings from Synology, refer to price table below.
Note that only the DS1019+ and DS918+ are actually cheaper than the last Computer Alliance eBay 20% off sale a fortnight ago, with the reduction in discount % more than offset by the pre-discount/list price reductions. Unfortunately, the after-discount prices of the DS418 and DS418J have actually both gone up slightly, and the DS418Play has both gone up in list price, and is not included as an eligible product in the PILGRIM coupon code.
For reference, I've also included my list price history table (aka the pre-discount/Jack table):
