Asustor AS6204T Braswell NAS Review

Asustor is one of the recent entrants in the NAS market. Over the last couple of years, they have tried to play in the same space as QNAP and Synology, targeting power users and SMBs. They have a wide variety of hardware platforms to choose from, ranging from ARM-based 2-bay systems to Xeon-based rackmounts. Asustor launched the AS6xxx series NAS units based on Braswell SoCs in September 2015. We had the opportunity to put the AS6204T, a 4-bay model based on the quad-core Intel Celeron N3150, through our NAS evaluation routine. Read on to see how the unit stacks up against the competitors in this space.
