ASUSTOR AS-204TE Review

NAS setup couldn’t be easier.  The included ASUSTOR control panel quickly finds your NAS on the network for quick setup.  Once found, the application gives you some quick and useful information about your NAS.

The application then walks you through your initial configuration.

The initialization process will prompt you to either upload ADM or connect to ASUSTOR for the latest firmware available

After firmware has been applied, ADM presents two options.  1-Click Setup and Custom Setup.  1-Click Setup uses optimized settings in accordance with your computer settings and the installed hard drives.  Personally, I always choose the Customer Setup.

The rest of the configuration is broken down into 5 steps.

  1. The first being Hostname and admin Password.
  2. The second is time & date
  3. Network configuration
  4. Storage Configuration
  5. Settings applied

The last 3 screens are for an ASUSTOR ID.  This provides you with the ability to get technical support and download apps from the ASUSTOR App Central and is also required for the Cloud Connect Service.

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.
