Another function dedicated to the physical hot-swappable hard disks, MyArchive, has its operational capacity expanded and now supports various file systems. ASUSTOR also improved its multimedia experience by equipping the ASUSTOR Portal with the ability to play streaming full HD from major sites such as YouTube, Netflix, Vimeo, etc. In synthetic tests the ASUSTOR AS6104T does not betray expectations, confirming the excellent suitability of the latest Intel platforms to deliver high processing power in all conditions, in both the RAID protocol and the working environment, thus leaving the user free to adopt any storage solution with virtually no limits.

"The ASUSTOR AS6202T offers great performance in a solid chassis. If you are looking for a NAS that doubles as a lightweight Virtual Machine, or 4K UHD media player, the AS6202T is a great choice. "


Madshrimps, US 2016-03
"The 4-bay unit can also output video signal on HDMI and the server can be operated this way without the need of a PC in order to work with other media-center applications. If we do not have the server placed in a convenient area near the TV screen, we can always use the supplied ADM modules for working with multimedia content as SoundsGood, LooksGood or even Plex which is a multi-platform media center application. For browsing photos we do also have the Photo Gallery application. Regarding the server performance, we can clearly see improvements via the lower-specced model and when working with encrypted folders, the copy performance takes a bit of a hit.

"


NikkTech, US 2016-03

"As a NAS, the ASUSTOR AS5002T is competent, well featured, performant, and stable. But, the real value is the incredible flexibility that the platform provides from its rich application ecosystem and the underlying hardware.

TweakTown, US 2016-01
"Overall, the ASUSTOR AS6202T is a solid NAS appliance and quite possibly the quickest two-bay appliance we have tested which makes sense as this unit appears to share the same configuration with its four-bay counterpart. The level of features you get with this appliance is top notch and with this unit carrying an MSRP of $569.99 with a three-year warranty, it's quite competitive in the market as well."


Technieuws, Netherlands 2016-01

PlugnGeek, Canada 2016-01
"Its interface is very easy to access and operate without specialized knowledge. The fact that it is almost completely silent allows the NAS to fit in as much in a conference room as in the midst of a living room. It is quickly forgotten. Asustor therefore has been able to offer a beautiful multimedia product, very complete and already mature enough to be compared to the greats in the market.

 

The pros:

  • A 3-year warranty on the entire range
  • Ultra quiet
  • Very complete Simple interface to master
  • A true Swiss army knife

"AS5002T: Meaty two-bay NAS for home or office. Out of the box, the performance is pretty impressive, with the possible exception of its 4K read performance; however, the 4K write performance is strong in both RAID0 and RAID1."


eTeknix, UK 2015-12
"The ASUSTOR AS1002T is a powerful entry level NAS that comes with a low power consumption, all basic features, a good performance, and a fair price."


Hardware Heaven, UK 2015-12
"Setup is super simple, unscrew the thumb screws on the back slot in the drive(s) and screw them in (no tools required). Close it up, connect and power on. Within a few minutes we are up and running with the latest OS. We had no setup issues and all of the drives and devices we tried worked without problem too. Asustor do list compatible devices where appropriate so that will keep consumers right and from there we can configure the NAS however we want. Performance is also a highlight of he AS1002T, from the 100MB/s + drive performance to USB peaking over that level too. Standard OS use is responsive and we noted no significant lag when the NAS was performing tasks such as app updates in the background.

So given all of the above, it should come as no surprise that with an RRP of £160/$199 and the performance and functionality listed above that the AS1002T wins our value award."


Cowcotland, France 2015-12

"With the AS1004T, ASUSTOR has placed itself directly among the great names of network storage through an economical and quality product.

Choosing a Marvell processor provides sufficient performance while the number of add-on applications available via "App Central" is very impressive. App categories include web publications and blog platforms, development tools and multimedia applications.

Mobile users will be won over by the cloud tools used to access data from anywhere through Internet. The DR. ASUSTOR feature is capable of ensuring the proper functioning of the NAS while identifying any errors. A much more intuitive and convenient system than ancient notification systems.

Pros:

  • Rich functionality
  • Management interface
  • 3 year warranty
"


We Got Served, UK 2015-12
"At $289, the ASUSTOR AS1004 is probably the least expensive four-bay NAS that I’ve reviewed and it offers a significant bang for the buck. Wind back the clock a couple of years and a NAS product at this price point would have been a cheap and nasty two-bay device with terrible performance and ropey build quality. The ASUSTOR AS1004T is none of these things. With huge storage capacity, a decent suite of features and in ADM, an operating system that’s easy to manage, the AS1004T is a fabulous entry-level NAS that’ll serve the family well."


Techpowerup, US 2015-12
"A good-looking, budget-centric NAS from Asustor, the AS3102T packs a fresh Intel Braswell CPU that allows it to handle up to 4K content playback and provides it with good network-transfer speeds with encrypted files. This NAS's strong point is its ability to playback 4K content properly. To conclude, the AS3102T is an affordable NAS with a nice performance-per-dollar ratio, and it uses quality components, including a good power adapter by Delta Electronics.

Pros:

  • Affordable price
  • Good performance with both open and encrypted file transfers
  • Low power consumption
  • Silent operation
  • Hardware-transcoding engine
  • 4K multimedia playback support
  • HDMI 1.4b port

"Overall the ASUSTOR AS3104T can’t be beaten on value and is clearly the best budget multimedia focused NAS on the market right now. Having spent the past few weeks playing around with the AS3104T we have no real complaints, upgradable memory would have been nice but it certainly isn’t a deal breaker."


Cachem, France 2015-12
"The ASUSTOR AS3102T NAS has a really nice design and is easily inserted into a living room or office. Although the frequency of its processor might surprise, it is nevertheless well suited for NAS + media player usage. The promise of H.265 decoding leaves a good future to this product."


PC Professionale, Italy 2015-11
"ASUSTOR offers a very good overall product, both in terms of construction and performance. The hardware used is perfect for multimedia (and here Intel has done a great job) and represents the ultimate in the home NAS.

Pros:

  • Excellent performance
  • Multimedia
  • Software bundle
"


Comptoir-Hardware, France 2015-11
"We're done with evaluating the AS1004T from ASUSTOR. This small NAS is pretty nice, very simple to implement and great for general public use. We saw in our tests, the AS1004T provides performance at a high level. The flow rates are sufficient for use and are a notch above competitors in the segment. RAID 1 is more balanced on this model, while data encryption remains laborious, but more effective here. We appreciate the low consumption of this model, as well as more than moderate noise during heavy loads. The AS1004T is ultra quiet thanks to a well-staged control. The fan is not operated unnecessarily and that's good for our ears."


Madshrimps, US 2015-11
"Regarding the system performance, we were quite impressed by the read/write speeds in normal use. The product is running the latest ADM 2.5.1 version, which is really a breeze to use and the initial setup procedure can be also ran from mobile devices, thanks to the AiMaster application.

While the more expensive ASUSTOR NAS units which support HDMI can run PopcornTime for watching the latest TV Shows and Movies in a very simple manner, the AS1004T model can handle multimedia content playback via LooksGood and Plex applications which are a breeze to install and use."



Redeszone, Spain 2015-11
"Performance and stability for this NAS server has been excellent during the two weeks of testing.

The ADM 2.5 operating system has gone from being a complete unknown to us (we had never tried an ASUSTOR NAS before) to be our favorite NAS operating system. The menus are quick, intuitive and very elegant in design. Users also have the freedom to extend the default functionality of the system by installing additional software services. This additional software is installed from the App Central application. We just have to click on "Install" to start the process and it is really easy and simple. This ASUSTOR AS6202T is currently the fastest and most complete NAS we've tested to date. Taking into account the technical characteristics, the performance achieved and the price of equipment, the final assessment from RedesZone is: a 10/10 score with the highest recommendation."


MaximumPC, US 2015-11
"Ultimately, it's the ASUSTOR AS5002T that gets our vote. It's a powerful NAS, and although ASUSTOR markets it as a home/power user two-bay device, it would equally served as the storage backbone in a small office without any problems. this is especially true as the memory can be upgraded to help keep up with the demands of a growing office. The ASUSTOR Data master OS is just superb, easy to use, and navigate, and its heavy use of icons makes it pleasing on the eye. The fact that it has an HDMI port so it can connect to a TV and , by using home theater software, be turned into a fully functioning 1080p media center is another string to an already impressive bow. With the support of a huge store of downloadale apps behind it, the great thing about the AS5002T is that it can be tuned and customized to fit anyone's personal needs, and that's what makes it a great all-rounder.

Meaty: Performance, feature set and ADM OS."


Hardware.Info, Netherlands 2015-11
"With the AS1002T, ASUSTOR releases a very interesting NAS with great potential and an excellent level of performance. It is the first model released by the brand that moves into a lower price segment. You can see that mainly reflected in the price tag of around 200 euros. For us, the AS1002T is an excellent choice and definitely worth it if you are looking for a new network storage device. A NAS to consider for sure! In our view it is sufficient to distinguish this NAS with an Excellent Choice Award."


3Dgameman, Canada 2015-11
"The ASUSTOR AS1002T NAS is designed to be your cloud storage solution with many mobile apps to make connectivity a snap. It's an affordable, compact and very elegant looking NAS. It can accommodate two 8TB drives, has two USB3 ports, a Gigabit LAN port and much more."


AnandTech, US 2015-11
"The AS6204T also comes with a HDMI 1.4b port and bundled media playing apps. The NAS can also be used as a media player for 4K videos with support for multi-channel audio over SPDIF as well as HDMI. The presence of AES-NI enables powerful encryption capabilities at a reasonable price point. The unit ships with 4GB of RAM, but users can upgrade easily to 8GB (the unit has two SO-DIMM slots). This could be important if a lot of apps end up running on the NAS simultaneously. Unlike competitors who provide a 2-year warranty for this class of products, Asustor advertises a 3-year warranty for the AS6204T. Coming to the business end of the review, Asustor's top-end Braswell NAS is power efficient, extensible and performs in an acceptable manner. There is obviously scope for improvement on the software side - both in terms of performance as well as feature set. However, having observed the evolution of ADM over the last couple of years and the commitment shown by Asustor, I can say that they are on the right track."


APH Networks, Canada 2015-11
"The ASUSTOR AS1002T is a great looking NAS that delivers class leading performance, with one of the best operating systems in the market today, for only $180 at press time. Its feature set is competitive for the price, with its performance and operating system easily one of, if not the best, in its class. If you do not own a NAS right now, ASUSTOR's latest value entry may be your gateway drug. After all, you have to be a user of a good NAS to understand one. The ASUSTOR AS1002T is a good NAS."


Legion Hardware, Australia 2015-11
"The ASUSTOR AS6202T performed exceptionally well in most of our tests and quickly proved that it can hang with Synology’s latest flagship 2-bay NAS, the DS715. The AS6202T has the added benefit of HDMI support @ 4K making it a viable alternative to a HTPC. At its heart the Braswell N3150 quad-core SoC not only affords the AS6202T features such as hardware transcoding and hardware encryption, but it also has more than enough power to serve up files to multiple clients. Overall the ASUSTOR AS6202T is an extremely capable NAS that packs loads of features and plenty of performance."


59Hardware, France 2015-10
"By offering the AS6204T, Asustor offers a complete and versatile NAS for small businesses. This new feature-rich model relies on tools that have been proven for quite a few generations of devices.

The hardware data encryption and multimedia content management with 4K videos are positivies that we had previously discovered during the AS7004T testing a few months ago.

The AS6204T will stand out above all based on two points. Its N3150 Braswell quad-core Intel Celeron processor is among the privileged few to benefit from the 14nm engraving. It has sufficient computing power for the NAS to provide good responsiveness. The second point concerns the possibilities of extending the DDR3 Dual-Channel memory by slots on the back of the motherboard."



NikkTech, US 2015-10
"The AS6204T NAS Server by ASUSTOR is a solid solution for people who want a powerful yet silent model with 4K playback capabilities (and then some) and a plethora of features which is why we’re giving it our Platinum Award

Bjorn3D, US 2015-10
"With a retail price right around $580 USD, this NAS does seem to be a bit pricey. But you must consider that outside of the traditional NAS duties, which the AS6202T handles quite well, this device can also function in many other aspects. The included HDMI output allows this NAS to become a media player with access to not just the data stored on the unit, but to online content as well. The multiple peripheral connections allow for printer sharing, and external storage connections. Add in all of the available applications in ADM, and you can really get your money’s worth out of the AS6202T. We can envision this unit serving multiple roles in a modern home environment. It serves up data and backs it up to the cloud automatically, it connects to the 60″ TV for movie night, it streams music and movies to the kids’ tablets, and it even provides home surveillance recording to keep things in check around the house. Toss in a 3-year warranty, and ASUSTOR is really pushing to get the AS61 and AS62 models into your home. After adding up all of the available features of the ASUSTOR AS6202T, we can really appreciate the value of this device.

Pros:

  • Intel Braswell N3150 CPU is powerful, yet efficient
  • ADM 2.5 is a very polished user interface
  • Large selection of optional applications
  • Low power use, and low noise output
  • 3-year warranty

"Note that with this model, ASUSTOR provides 4 camera licenses free for those who want to do video surveillance, it will be enough for a vast majority of users.

Performance: Overall, I'm not disappointed, it is often close to the maximum of bandwidth."

"ASUSTOR AS-1002T: an entry-level NAS that meets high demands

The quality of the ASUSTOR software interface and quality design presented a relatively large investment until now. The AS1002T and its cousin, the 4-bay AS1004T arrive just in time to offer an entry-level NAS product that meets high demands. Of course, performance is clearly down when compared to the AS-6204T that we tested, with the audio/video connection ports not included on the device. But the AS-1002T has retained most of the assets of the top models including comprehensive features and accessibility, which should meet the needs of most users without killing their budget."



Guru3D, US 2015-10
"

ASUSTOR is on full frontal attack in terms of price and performance, the AS1002T is simply a terrific product that easily outclasses any NAS in this price range. The performance is extremely good for a processor of this class. Combined with the ADM software suite and applications this low power unit will be a terrific choice for a home server.

The ASUSTOR AS1002T (or four HDD capable AS1004T) with the new updated software definitely is one of the most versatile NAS units we have tested.

The ASUSTOR AS1002T is easily if not the best performing NAS in this price range with all whistles and bells available. It offers more than plenty features for the consumer side of the market with excellent performance and extensive software suite that you may expect from a NAS unit anno 2015. Seriously, 199 EURO covered with a three year warranty ... that's worthy of our hard to earned Storage Sweetness award.

"


NikkTech, US 2015-01

"Nothing bad to say about the performance. Playback of a fully self-ripped Blu-ray file was made by the NAS without any lagging, or buffering, and even transcoding of the same material was without any problems. Which I also had expected with 2 GB DDR3 RAM and a i3 CPU. Benchmarks were by the book, and I have an expectation that AS7004T can handle anything near 220 MB / second, if your network supports link aggregation. The noise from AS7004T is hardly noticeable due to the large 120mm fan that runs at a maximum of 600 RPM in load, making it extremely quiet and easy to use in the living room."

"NAS with HDMI and overwhelming range of apps A good NAS at a reasonable price, doing very well for storage, backup and playback of movies. The service is good and the features are just as in particular the range of apps. The operating system is well balanced and manageable. A NAS with something to offer."


Inside Hardward, Italy 2014-05
"Thanks to the many possibilities, NAS systems have begun to spread more and more and also into the home. Many users are starting to use these products for the first time. It follows that many of them are not experts, and an intuitive operating system can lead them to prefer one product over another. Asustor has clearly paid particular attention to these users, especially with products such as the AS-204TE, specially designed for them. In particular, the ADM operating system confirms once again the high ease of use also shown in previous versions."


TweakTown, US 2014-05
"The ASUSTOR AS-604RD includes a number of features useful for small business and even small enterprise offices. The performance is very good."


HW Legend, Italy 2014-05
"The unit has been shown to have excellent skills in all areas of reactivity, expressing solidity and strength in all usage scenarios. Good operating temperatures, in view of the fact that the NAS server has not been used in a rack and air-conditioned environment, a situation in which temperatures can significantly improve. During all the long usage sessions were content consumption, thanks to the implementation (very rare in this type of devices) of the Sleep Mode S3 ( STR - Suspend To RAM ). The timing of startup / shutdown are of good quality and in general the NAS Server has had a behavior more than positive."


Network World, US 2014-04
"The ASUSTOR 602T network attached storage system, outstanding features and performance What does this amazing collection of features and performance cost? Without drives, the ASUSTOR 602T is available for around $400 which compares favorably with similar offerings from other vendors. Asustor is one of the newer NAS vendors but the 602T places them squarely in the same market as the bigger and older players. I’m very impressed and the ASUSTOR 602T gets a Gearhead rating os 5 out of 5."


Techniewus, Netherlands 2014-04

News and Review, UK 2014-04
"The ASUSTOR tagline is ‘Innovation Makes A Difference’ and when it comes to their range of NAS this catchy one liner rings so true. Being one of the first manufacturers to merge media playing abilities alongside network storage, ASUSTOR covered all bases in terms of the consumer type their products were geared towards. Each new release within the last 12months, ASUSTOR have pushed the boundaries not only with their product specifications but also with their NAS software, switching up the rules and making owning a NAS one of the hottest new gadgets to own. "


PC PRO, UK 2014-04
"A good-value nine-bay rack NAS appliance with decent performance and plenty of features"


Techpowerup, US 2014-04
"It packs many interesting features, including several multimedia ones that will allow you to get rid of your old media player to replace it with a device that does it all while taking up almost the same amount space. Even the for PC standards, a weak CPU will suffice in most cases and will net you bottom-low energy consumption numbers, which is an incredibly highly sought after feature in NAS servers since they are supposed to operate around the clock. "


CDRInfo, Poland 2014-04
"ASUSTOR did perfectly with regards to performance. Components that are mounted within the housing, and it achieves very good results with typical tasks associated with file transfers. U.S. reviews even write sensationally about both accepting and sending files via CIFS and FTP. iSCSI and WebDAV results are equally good.

Pros:

  • (Very) high performance
  • Large software capabilities
  • Convenient interface
  • Ability to install additional applications
  • One of the two USB 3.0 ports is on the front
  • ASUSTOR College
"


MacityNet, Italy 2014-04

Pros:

  • Large amount of available functions
  • Easy to setup and use
  • Energy-saving features
  • Documentation in Italian

  • ADM 2.0 provides rich functionality
  • Mobile applications are well developed
"


MacWorld, UK 2014-03
"For the software Asustor developed its own an app-based interface. It has a rich graphical look, with drop shadows below open windows, all centred on a desktop populated with large iPhone-style app icons. It’s a great-looking environment that’s closer to a modern Linux graphical shell."

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

Andrews Reviews, UK 2014-03
"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!"


GoodGearGuide, Australia 2014-03
"The 2-bay ASUSTOR AS-202TE is a feature-packed NAS device, thanks mainly to an app environment that allows many different functions to be added, depending on your needs. It's well built, easy to use, and we think it's among the best NAS devices aimed at home users."


eTeknix, UK 2014-02
"As far as performance is concerned, the dual core Atom SoC is no slouch for a 2-bay system. Topping out at 116MB/s on the write side and 113.3MB/s on the read side of things, for the money, you really can’t go far wrong. Pair the speeds and specifications with a very user-friendly GUI and what we find here is an ideal package for the first time NAS user who wants a system that is easy to work with and one that also offers up that little bit extra with its media centre capabilities. I’ll also point out that if you already have another NAS or other network storage device already setup within your network, then these sources can be linked in to the media front end of XMBC making it even easier to get access to your media content wherever it is stored on the network."


BuyCOMs, Thailand 2014-02

"The biggest advantage of the NAS is that it can perform the roles of a system HTPC or media player. It is quiet, consumes little power and with the HDMI port, can be connected to any display. The Asustor Portal and XBMC applications become available once the NAS is connected to a display. Remote control is available via the Asustor Remote, AiRemote mobile app, or USB mouse and keyboard. You can also connect a wireless audio system via Bluetooth. Stable and fast, the ADM operating system has just been upgraded to the 2.1 official version. The number of add-on applications (over 100) is impressive."


HomeTheater, Israel 2014-02
"Impressive for a company so young, is the wealth of information offered to the customer in the form of discussion forums and ASUSTOR College.
