Inside, simplicity reigns supreme.  Disassembling this NAS is far easier than it was for the QNAP TS-470.


The AS-204TE is powered by an FSP Group Inc. 150 Watt Power supply.  Unfortunately, the PSU is not 80 PLUS certified and the product page specifies that this unit operates at 72% efficiency.


The AS-204TE does not allow for memory expansion.  The Samsung PC1600 DDR3 DRAM (K4B2G1646Q-BCK0 DDR3 ) is fixed.


USB 3.0 is handled by an Etron EJ188H controller and has a maximum bandwidth of 1.25 Gigabyte/s per port and up to 5Gb/s in SuperSpeed.


The Intel ATOM processor is cooled by a simple heatsink

ASUSTOR AS5008T Review

ASUSTOR has become one of my go to manufacturers for NAS. They have made some great NAS at some very affordable prices. Naturally, as time goes on, components are less expensive for consumers and for manufacturers. This allows NAS makers to pack more power into their storage appliances without increasing costs. In some cases, we are finding more powerful NAS at lower costs. To compliment this decrease in costs, production ramps up, R&D ramps up, and product enhancements increase. Ok, the point of all that? ASUSTOR has released a new 8-bay NAS, gave it more power, slapped a new name on it, and... lowered the cost. Enter the AS5008T.
