PPK Mag, Czech 2014-03
" AS-302T is a powerful and very smart home data storage solution that can be also used as a multimedia player."

AnandTech, Canada 2014-03
"From our experience with the unit, we can say without doubt that Asustor is a very effective and welcome addition to the list of SOHO / SMB NAS vendors. We look forward to evaluating more Asustor units that present a better price to features/performance ratio than what is provided by the AS-304T."

PC DIY, Taiwan 2014-03
"The ASUSTOR AS-304T is equipped with an Intel Atom dual core processor. It can be used as a home file sharing center and can be used to play multimedia and browse the web via HDMI. PCDIY! strongly recommends this product."

NikkTech, US 2014-03
"Overall i think that ASUSTOR has manufactured yet another NAS Server which is more than just enough for its intended use and although performance could had been slightly better the excellent and graphics rich ADM with its ease of use more than just makes up for that and since the price is right we are happy to give it our Golden Award."

Legion Hardware, Australia 2014-03
"Therefore in terms of performance the AS-204TE is right up there and is arguably better value than the more expensive AS-304T. Moreover it had no trouble wiping the floor with QNAP’s new TS-421, for roughly the same price the AS-204TE provided considerably better performance in most tests.

With Asustor ticking all the right boxes when it comes to price and performance we were just left to evaluate the ADM software. With the initial version of this software being very solid we were not surprised to find a very mature second revision. The recent 2.1 update brought even more features and performance which we like to see.

Additionally the XBMC app and Asustor remote expand the possibilities of the AS-204TE, making it an ideal HTPC replacement. "

Hardware Asylum, US 2014-03
"However you decide to use the ASUSTOR AS-304T you will not be disappointed. There is a plethora of applications available and the overall form factor and ease of use makes it a perfect device for the home when you need to remotely store or share data with multiple systems.


Good Things

  • Powerful Atom 1.6Ghz Processor
  • Four Drive RAID Support

"The 2XXTE range of enclosures are well built and strong performing whilst being reasonably priced. The Asustor Portal is the icing on the cake that should see the 2XXTE be very popular and find their way under many a tv set. It has a large catalogue of apps behind it and their mobile apps continue to go from strength to strength.
With a wealth of features for both business and home users and the media capabilities of a htpc at an extremely competitive price point the 2XXTE series is a clear winner!"

The number of add-on applications (over 100) is impressive."

"Impressive for a company so young, is the wealth of information offered to the customer in the form of discussion forums and ASUSTOR College.

The AS-304T can also save customers from purchasing an HTPC. It eliminates the competition with its HDMI port and XBMC App. Boxee can also be installed quickly."

The addition of media capabilities makes the AS-304T an incredibly easy to use media server, not to mention the plethora of other configurations such as FTP, or Web Server that offer endless things you can do with the AS-304T. Not to mention you also configure the AS-304T for remote file access, making it more than just a place to dump data on your network. You’ll of course need to factor in the high initial cost of the AS-304T as well as the costs of the hard drives, so it’s wise to start with one or two drives and then work your way from there. If you’re looking for a stable NAS with plenty of configuration options, then the AS-304T is the best thing you’ll purchase this year."

"ASUSTOR may be a latecomer to the SMB NAS market, but we’ve been hugely impressed by the appliances we’ve tested so far. The ADM software has gone from strength to strength; overall performance is competitive; and, most crucially of all, the AS-608T is better value than rivals such as Synology’s DS1813+ and Qnap’s TS869 Pro. This is a top choice for SMBs, and comes highly recommended

Good value, nippy performance and ample features makes Asustor's 8-bay NAS box a fine choice for SMBs "

"ASUSTOR's ADM 2.0 operating system makes managing a NAS easy for the average user.

"The ASUSTOR AS-302T is a NAS that delivers excellent performance and functionality. "

NikkTech, US 2013-12
"The AS-608T NAS Server by ASUSTOR is certainly not cheap but it's actually roughly 20% cheaper compared to its counterpart from QNAP (TurboNAS TS-869 Pro) and 10% cheaper than its counterpart by Synology (DiskStation DS1813+). Of course in the end it all comes down to what exact features you are after, which brand you trust more and which OS you like more but ASUSTOR offers a solid solution that costs less than the competition and at the same time offers pretty much the same features, has almost identical performance levels and uses a very good OS. Because of all of the things mentioned we feel that the AS-608T may not be the perfect NAS Server but it's still well worth our Golden Award. "

"ASUSTOR AS-302T: A well-equipped and reasonably priced NAS ...
What to say in conclusion? If you are looking for NAS that is high-performing, scalable, feature-packed ... while on a budget?I think we have the NAS for you.

Madshrimps, Netherlands 2013-09
"ASUSTOR have recently developed the second version of their ADM software which is very responsive and quite easy to use. We can install lots of applications in order to enhance server functionality like Dropbox, Download Center, Surveillance Center, SoundsGood and much more. We can always migrate the drives easily to a new ASUSTOR NAS with more bays, without the need to transfer data to another NAS via LAN thereby consuming precious hours."

Legion Hardware, Australia 2013-09
"What made the ASUSTOR AS-304T such an attractive product for us was the price tag, at $520 it is one of the cheapest Atom powered NAS devices we have tested. Furthermore there are few high-end 4-bay Atom powered NAS devices that are available for such a competitive price.
Given the performance we saw it means good things for the AS-304T. In our download tests it was never more than 4% slower than the AS-606T which has comparable performance to the smaller AS-604T. "

My Navi News, Japan 2013-09

"The ASUSTOR AS-302T is a very versatile and capable NAS device. The build quality is solid, it has a nice, metal chassis and lots of features. Even if we leave the HDMI port out of the equation, this is a NAS certainly worth considering if you're looking for a more deluxe model with lots of possibilities. The performance is good, and for home use the second gigabit port featured on the 6 series isn't really necessary. "

"Performance is another area where Asustor have got off to a great start. Looking over the performance figures, particularly within the HD Video Record test where the AS-604T came close on a couple of occasions to topping out the LAN connection with as much bandwidth as is theoretically possible. Throughout the remainder of the test areas and through all the RAID configurations, the AS-604T gave some impressive figures that show they are just as good as the other leading brands out there. "

Andrews Reviews, UK 2013-08
"The 3 series is thus a fantastic value proposition, combining the power of an Atom chip with a price point matching comparable systems using Marvell chips. Their range of mobile app's is expanding and the software has been refined and polished even more.

    "In terms of hardware and software features the ASUSTOR AS-606T is well equipped. The LCD screen is a nice touch, as is the inclusion of a front and rear mounted USB 3.0 port. In fact that is something that has really annoyed us about the latest Synology DSx13 series, as the models that do feature front mounted USB ports for the quick copy function all use a USB 2.0 port and place the much faster USB 3.0 ports at the rear where they are less likely to be accessed."

    Benchmark Reviews, US 2013-04
    "The ASUSTOR AS-604T is targeted to a growing class of NAS users, I think. The expansion of cloud-based services has really opened the public's eyes to the advantages of centralized storage, that's universally accessible. ASUSTOR has all the basics covered in their standard software apps, from cloud-based services to mobile access with both iOS and Android. The ultra low power sleep mode, combined with Wake-on-LAN provides an easy way to reduce operating costs and extend HDD life. The local display capability is a new addition that extends the capabilities of this NAS for media streaming. Lastly, the folder-cased 256-bit encryption is a real bonus for those who want an extra measure of security for their data. Volume-based encryption is a big fail, with unacceptable performance degradation."
