asustor AS3102T NAS Review

asustor-AS3102T (1)

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.

Thecus W5000 NAS Review

Just when I thought it was safe to open a box again, Thecus drops one at my door and tells me that they have produced the First Ever Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 Essentials NAS. After coming hot off the heals of the Buffalo WSS 5400 NAS review, I thought I would have a break to get back to some good ole fashioned Linux based NAS reviews, I guess not. Having liked the Buffalo NAS, I can't wait to see what Thecus is able to accomplish with their W5000 5-Bay premium NAS.
