Packaging and a Closer Look

Packaging for the Asustor carries bright colors and images of the NAS on the front. The bottom right corner lists compatibility of the appliance, and the very top of the box has a sticker with full system specifications.

Scope of delivery includes the power adapter, two ethernet cables, drive screws, and a software disc. The media remote seen in the image is not part of the standard package, but can be purchased for around $35 USD.

The front of the tower houses quite a few LEDs to denote LAN, power, and disk activity. The bottom left houses a USB 3.0 port for quick backups, and the drive trays are lockable.

The back of the NAS is packed with outputs; we have the optical audio output at the top, followed by the HSMI port, eSATA, and then dual USB 2.0 ports. Gigabit ethernet and USB 3.0 round out the outputs, and we do have the power input and Kensington lock. To cool the drives and NAS itself, Asustor has loaded the 5102T with a 70mm cooling fan.

The drive trays are metal with nylon insert to protect drives from shorting against the NAS frame.
