Final Thoughts

ASUSTOR AS-304T 4-Bay NAS Review 224 | TweakTown.com

The ASUSTOR AS-304T doesn't break any new ground for performance or features, but it does bring the whole bag of tricks at a lower price point than what we're accustomed to. At roughly $450, the ASUSTOR AS-304T is a low cost solution that brings enterprise features to the consumer class. The system only gives you 1.6GHz of CPU power and 1GB of RAM to run a few at a time, but the features are there.

The processing power of the AS-304T is plenty enough for the consumer features, though, and that is where the AS-304T shines. One of the best features is the media center function from XBMC. The ability to play media content stored on the NAS through HDMI is great.

Since it's a NAS, the files on the disks can be played on other devices like smart TVs, media players and so on. Going a step further, the cloud features unbind you from your home network, and give access to your files while on the go, outside of the home.

Other typical NAS features are also present. Remote backup, NZB and Torrent download services and so on are just a small pieces in a much larger puzzle. There are so many features that it's impossible to even try to list them all.

At this time, the ASUSTOR AS-304T is one of the better values on the diskless NAS market. While in the budget section of the market, ASUSTOR built their code very well. We noticed the high transfer performance when we tested the AS-604T, and again with the AS-304T. The code allows the NAS to transfer data as fast as some of the competitor's products with faster processors.
