Conclusion: Asustor's AS-602T is an excellent NAS, though it is a bit pricey. If you don't need the extra CPU power and ports it provides, you can get the same performance from Asustor's cheaper offering, the Editors' Choice AS-202TE.
Pros: Excellent disk read and write speed. Great RAID 1 protection. User-friendly, clean interface. Solid design and awesome LEDs.
