Asustor Drivestor 4 (AS1104T) 4-bay NAS Review

Asustor's Drivestor 4 is a compact 4-bay NAS using a plastic external enclosure with a metal internal frame. The front top left-hand of the Drivestor 4 is where you will find the system LEDs. There are four of them; power, system, LAN connectivity and disk activity. The bottom left of the front panel houses one of the two USB 3.2 Gen1 ports.

The real panel of the unit is dominated by the grill for the 120mm cooling fan (Apistek SAB4B2U-PFGE). The speed of the fan can be set either manually (low, medium or high) or auto in the ADM OS. Above this and to the right is the power button (which is a bit of an odd position for it) under which are the second USB 3.2 Gen1 port and the 2.5GbE RJ45 port.

The Drivestor 4 doesn't have drive trays, the drives are directly mounted into the drive bay frame using the provided thumbscrews. This method of installation does mean that the system needs to be turned off to swap any drives in and out due to failure.
