Benchmarks - Power Consumption and Acoustics

 

Our power consumption testing involves running the power supply from the NAS through the output on our Kill-A-Watt meter. Results are recorded at several intervals including Idle, peak and after the drives enter standby.

Above, we have our results from the power consumption testing. At peak during our workload testing, the ASUSTOR AS-202TE consumed 26 watts. After we allowed the unit to idle out power consumption lowered to a reasonable 21 watts, and when the drives spun down, the unit consumed just 11 watts.

 

Acoustics are measured from a distance of one foot with our IEC Type II Sound Level Meter.

After initializing the AS-202TE, we measured a peak noise level of 32.8dBa, after the unit idled, noise was lower at 29.3dBA.
