Asustor AS-604T NAS
Here we get our first look at the Asustor AS-604T. The four front bays are on the front of the NAS. The drive sleds speak volumes about the intended use, their lack of a locking mechanism means this NAS is meant to be used in a secured environment like a home or locked cabinet.
The front display has four action buttons next to it. The buttons scroll through the onscreen menu system to configure or monitor your AS-604T.
On the top left we found the power button that has a blue light strip running through it. Just under the power button is a green light strip that shows HDD activity.
At the bottom left is a USB 3.0 port in the middle of a special backup button. You can place your thumb drive or external USB HDD into the slot, press the button and your files move to the NAS.
The AS-604T accepts SATA drives and the drive sleds support 2.5" and 3.5" form factor drives.
System cooling comes from a single 120mm fan. A replaceable power supply fits at the top of the unit.
We've seen several NAS products with the power supply buried deep in the unit. Power supplies are the weak link in NAS products and we think Asustor choose to make the AS-604T power supply replaceable for that reason.
I/O connectors are located on the back in streamlined cluster.
The power supply rating is 80 Plus Bronze.
With the top off we found the extra SODIMM slot easily to reach. If you want to increase the memory capacity, the AS-604T accepts an additional 2GB DDR3 SODIMM stick for 3GB total.
The drive sleds are sturdy with a mix of metal and plastic pieces.
