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.

As mentioned in the introduction, the ASUSTOR AS-304T uses an Intel Atom dual-core processor running at 1.6GHz. The unit has 1GB of DDR3 memory that is soldered to the motherboard and not upgradable. The unit holds four hard drives, and you can use either 3.5" or 2.5" drives.

A new feature to hit the NAS market is media center capabilities. ASUSTOR included an HDMI output port and an IR port that can be used with ASUSTOR's remote control. Together with your TV, the ASUSTOR AS-304T takes on a new role as media player and media distribution for the rest of your devices on the network.

The cloud features of the ASUSTOR AS-304T make it so you don't have to rely just on devices on your network. Movies, music, photos and your other files can be accessed from anywhere you have an internet connection.

Google Shopping returned several results when searching for the ASUSTOR AS-304T. At the time of writing, the lowest price we found was $450 and most e-tailers have the AS-304T available for less than $470.
