Storage/NAS by stefan @ 2013-02-21

Even if they are new on the market, ASUSTOR has succeeded to deliver some powerful NAS servers. The model that we are reviewing in this article comes with 4 bays, is meant for usage at home and in small business environments and is packing an Intel Atom DS2700 CPU along with 1GB of RAM (user upgradeable to 3GB).

HDVideo_2Play: 90.809MB/s
HDVideo_4Play: 143.016MB/s

scores marked * are skewed because of the test system having more than >2GB RAM.

overall I'd say that performance wise the AS-604T CPU is fast enough to not be a bottleneck performance wise; the SSD inside pushes it past A lot more expensive enterprise products
