AXUS FiT 500E Five-Bay RAID DAS Server

After testing the Promise DS4600, we had several requests to review other DAS servers. AXUS FiT 500E, come on down!

The Promise DS4600 review was quite popular and even I was surprised at the number of people talking about it. Up until now we focused primarily on Network Attached Storage (NAS) servers, but Direct Attached Storage (DAS) seems to be a level that consumers are more eager to venture. There could be many reasons for this. DAS products cost less while offering many of the benefits of NAS servers. In this economy disposable income for many has been reduced, but the problems still remain; how is one supposed to keep all their digital files safe from mechanical failure?


AXUS Microsystems is a company that most of us are not familiar with. Their parent company is ASUStek, someone we have all come to know and love for many years now. I am a little surprised to see ASUS not launching storage systems under their own name considering the global brand recognition they have, but Shakespeare said it best; does a rose by any other name not smell as sweet?


Over time I am sure we can get used to the AXUS name, as long as they are able to deliver the same level of quality ASUS brings to the table. Let's have a look at the specifications of the AXUS FiT 500E.
