Summary: Packed with features and rivals many other Nas systems from companies who have been "at it" much longer. I am excited to see what they have to offer in the future as when it is time to expand our upgrade I will be looking at Asustor once again. Buy with confidence.
Summary: This is my second asustor device.The AS-602T can easily perform several functions simultaneously due high speed CPU and upgradable RAM. I'm using it for our small business as a central file storage sever, VPN and version control server and network backup solution for our team. In my opinion, the AS-602T should meet the expectations of demanding advanced home users and network administrators of small businesses seeking a powerful NAS with a large feature set.
Pros: - very fast and quiet - two 1Gb network ports - 2.16GHz x86 CPU brings business class speed and stability - RAM can be upgraded from 1GB to 3GB (just $20-$25) - great easy to use user interface - tons of useful applications for business and entertainment - great support
Summary: One of the best NAS boxes I've ever had. Easy setup default settings will get a personal user up and running in no time. Busness users will find lots of useful configurations.Joined domain and configured users in fifteen minutes.Backup in another five. Fast.Will buy another.
Summary: This is the WORST NAS system out there. Backup software is a joke, system fails to log you in at any given time and NAS constantly loses connection where I need to reboot the system in order to get to my files. Save your money, stay away for this product!!!!!
Summary: There were no mounting screws in the package as indicated on the box. I cannot even install the hard drives. This is my first impression of the item and if they can not even get the screws in the box I wonder what else wont work. The screws and vey small beveled flat heads and I cannot find any in the local computer stores.
Summary: Replacing our three year old Buffalo two disk LinkStation Pro Duo was a necessity as it was horribly slow for backups and searches and the interface was clumsy. After much research I found this rather pricey NAS from ASUSTOR (which is the storage division of ASUS that makes great computer equipment) that had the features I was looking for. So it took it out of the box once it arrived and was really impressed by the quality. As usual, ASUS didn't skimp.
Excerpt: If you're not familiar with setting up a NAS, this seems to have a learning curve to overcome. I'm still learning, but it is coming along nicely. It does not seem as easy as some people describe with "just plug it in, install the apps, and you're ready to go!". I'm still in the process of getting all apps to work correctly. The VPN service (service, not host) works sporadically and I have yet to get the system to go into standby on its own.
Summary: A great NAS from a great company. Plenty of horsepower, loads of features and tons of apps. I filled my AS-606T with (6) 4TB Seagate NAS HDDs, transferred by video library and use it as a streaming media server. I also store my music library and photography on it. Very happy with it. Should have done this a long time ago.
Summary: Replaced a two year old Synology 2 bay with this unit, and the difference was truly transformative! Using two WD Red, 2TB NAS drives in RAID0. My switch allows for bonded ethernet, so I fuse the ethernet ports. Seeing 50-60MB/s on my LAN. I upgraded the RAM from 1 GB to 3GB. What really makes the Asustor unique is the HDMI port on the back. I have this right next to my home theatre processor, and my front projection.
