We have reviewed many NAS systems over the last two years and today we are looking at our first product from Asustor, a subsidiary group of electronics giant ASUS. The 602T is a dual drive system with full cross platform support.
There is no doubt that ASUS are a force to be reckoned with. They generate billions of dollars a year in revenue and release a huge variety of products from motherboards and graphics cards to tablets, headsets and sound cards. Setting up a dedicated division for networked devices means they are taking NAS systems seriously.
There are six products available including the AS 602T, AS 604T, AS 606T and AS 608T. The last digit (before the ‘T’) represents the number of drives each unit can accommodate. Therefore we can work out, there are already 2, 4, 6 and 8 drive bays in the line up.
Has the AS 602T got what it takes to challenge the likes of Synology? At £399 inc vat, it is definitely targeting the high end enthusiast user.
