Asustor AS6302T 2-Bay Consumer NAS Review

Final Thoughts

 

As we found in testing, the 6302T certainly has its place in the market as a pure storage appliance. Along with this, ADM has quickly become a solid platform for its own app ecosystem.

Build quality is solid and on par with expectations for a consumer unit. The 6302T comes apart quite easily allowing you access to the internal components including easy access to memory. The drive trays while metal are covered in plastic eliminating any potential harmonics from being transferred throughout the chassis and are stout enough to handle the weight of any 3.5" hard drive.

 

The performance was good and what was expected of this unit. While SoC based platforms are few and far between these days they do have a place in the storage market and as we found today can perform quite well with the right drives. Sequential read and write topped 100 MB/s in all three of the tested RAID modes while write performance too was able to hit the same performance level. Workload testing showed how strong this unit was with Web Server as it was at the top of the charts in both IOPS and latency.

 

 

With all the extras that go with NAS appliances today, the AS6302T is setup to handle the workload of a typical home or office. For those wanting the flexibility in accessing their data anywhere, you can take advantage of cloud storage options while the NAS itself can easily become your home media hub with its direct HDMI connection. MSRP of the Asustor AS6302T comes in at $369.99 but the price has come down slightly since its introduction. You can find current pricing below. Warranty is listed at three-years.
