Earlier this year we here at TweakTown had the chance to review the AS-604T NAS appliance from ASUSTOR, a model that was targeted towards business environments. Switching gears, ASUSTOR is now entering the home and SOHO market space offering a full lineup of multimedia rich features in the new AS-20xT and AS-20xTE NAS appliances.


Today, we have the distinct opportunity to take a look at the AS-202TE, the TE version of the 202 NAS from ASUSTOR is the top of the line 2-bay solution in the 2 series, and features upgraded memory at 1GB and an integrated HDMI port for viewing your media through the ever popular XBMC. Additional features include ASUSTOR's ADM 2.0 NAS OS with CIFS, AFP and NFS file sharing protocols.



Hardware Specifications and Pricing


Modern NAS servers have moved beyond data storage through a wire network. In order to get the most out of a NAS you need to look at the extra I/O hardware and the mountain of potential software features.




The ASUSTOR AS-202TE is built on the Intel Atom 1.2GHz processor platform, next to this you will find 1GB of DDR3 DRAM. For connecting external devices, you will find on the back of the unit dual USB 3.0 ports, along with dual USB 2.0 ports and a single gigabit Ethernet port.


Additionally, the TE models include built-in infrared receivers for controlling XBMC via the optional ASUSTOR media remote, HDMI ports for watching your media on the big screen and an external audio jack for connecting up speakers to the NAS.


Pricing of the 2-bay ASUSTOR AS-202TE at this time is set at $259.99, with the larger 4-bay (AS-204TE) available for $429.99. Warranty is listed at two years.
