At first glance, the AS3102T is a very sleek and compact unit. The front of the NAS doesn’t have much to it. There aren’t any LED screens presenting information about what is going on; there aren’t any removable disk trays or even any fancy colors. The NAS is designed to exist without drawing much attention to it. However, if it is noticed, it isn’t an eyesore.
The front has a diamond-plate sort of modern design to it. The asustor logo is prominently displayed on the upper right-hand corner, the left panel features a power LED, a system status LED, a Network LED, and an HDD LED. Just below them you will find the Infrared Reciever and a single USB 3.0 port.
Around back you find two thumb screws, 2 x USB 3.0 ports, HDMI Port, Ethernet Port, a cooling fan, and a power button. The thumb screws are the only thing holding the case to the chassis and must be removed in order to install your hard drives.
Sides and bottom are uneventful.
