Summary: Got mine elsewhere at 30% less cost. Got it to replace a Windows LGA 775 system and Highpoint 2720 SGL. Asustor is not as multi-functional but it's more compact. No initial setup issues but sometimes is not "seen" by my computer and I have to run the Asustor Control Center and overwrite the Internet...
Pros: Works well with WD Red 6TB's Massive storage Suitable for archiving Easy-to-use Compact
Cons: Only 1 GB RAM Approved RAM Modules expensive Difficulty connecting sometimes Pre-installed folders can't be removed
Summary: Got this to house my web server, and bought a 6TB WD red drive to go with it. Got my 5.46tb of space off of it, and just added a second drive. Left it running overnight and I'm running RAID 1 now. I plan on ordering 2-3 more and going to Raid 5. Outstanding unit, can't say enough about it.
Summary: Until Asustor gets some US based support or can respond to issues within less than 3 weeks, avoid the brand. Products that cost over 2,000 with drives should have better support options available.
Pros: Relatively easy setup, intuitive interface, fast in iSCSI mode
Cons: Product failed in less than 90 days. Three different times it magically reset it's networking configuration and the third time it refuses to accept static or DHCP addressing, and I can't access the box.

Gives Synology a run for its money and a great, affordable alternative
27 December 2013
Summary: I am a long time owner of a Synology 1812+ and have used several different NAS boxes the last few years from QNAP, Thecus and Western Digital. The Synology has been rock solid and worked without a single issue.
Summary: So far it has been working really well. I have been playing with all the features, and there are a lot. So I am still figuring out how to do everything I want to. But so far I am really happy. The help has been good and the online interface is very easy to use.
