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.
Cons: Immature remote access cloud platform. Certificate errors in the device's File Explorer UI. Expensive. No SSD drive support.
Conclusion: At APH Networks, we have looked at many NAS products in the past, but never have we seen one from ASUSTOR before. I won't lie, when I first heard about this product, I was a little skeptical about a relatively new company producing network attached storage systems. However, after prolonged usage, I can say I really did like the ASUSTOR AS-602T. The usage of ADM, their own operating system, was a nice touch.
Conclusion: Asustor's biggest challenge may be in convincing end users to look past the established names and adopt a relatively unknown entity. That's often easier said than done, and in aiming initially at the high-end market, Asustor hasn't made the decision any easier - its first-run products start at £400. One of the company's first efforts, the AS-602T, is a powerful two-bay solution that delivers on most fronts.
