Early 2015, we had the AS7004T in-house for a full review. That unit came with 2GB of memory and a Core i3 at its heart. Now a few years have passed and requirements have changed for NAS platforms to the point we have a revamped SKU of the 7004T in-house; AS7004T-i5.
Physically this model isn't different at all, it shares the same enclosure, drive trays and rear I/O but internally things are much different. This latest model, works off the Intel Core i5 processor effectively doubling the core count of the original while keeping the AES-NI encryption engine and hardware acceleration engines. This new solution offers up a 3.0GHz quad-core paired with 8GB of DDR3 still expandable to 16GB via the DDR3 SO-DIMM standard.
Drive compatibility continues to climb, with this model supporting 12TB drives with a peak capacity across four bays at 48TB. RAID modes include 0,1,5,6 and 10 along with JBOD while the Internal filesystem is limited to EXT4 only. External drives can use FAT32, NTFS, EXT3/4 and HFS+.
For those wanting to use the AS7004T as a security workhorse, this platform supports 64 IP Cameras with local display the most of any prosumer NAS on the market.
MSRP of the Asustor AS7004T-i5 comes in at $1099.99 with a three-year warranty.
