That makes ASUSTOR big steps is not difficult to understand. This company of former employees of QNAP especially looks very good tricks from its direct competitors and do at least the same and if it can be just a bit more. The hardware just as beautiful, just as the operating system more attractive and slightly more packages to the functionality of the NAS to expand it out. Many of these packages are otherwise not Asustor itself but from third parties, but also by allowing other developers and companies to the NAS was ASUSTOR there early. Also, If you listen to music on your NAS.
The ASUSTOR AS5002T provides HDMI and S / PDIF connection.
The AS5002T is built around a powerful dual-core Intel Celeron processor and 1GB of RAM. Of all the NAS devices in the test, the AS5002T delivers the best performance. A knack of ASUSTOR, because the brand has so far used only Intel processors in its NAS devices is that you can transfer the disks as another (larger) NAS of the brand and can work directly on. You want to connect the NAS directly to your audio / video devices than via the HDMI terminal and there is even an optical digital audio output (SP / DIF). The device will also be used as a media player is excellent.
ASUSTOR offers many enhancements for its NAS devices.
There is ample choice of standard application and functionality, combined with the wide range of packages is too many times in any case to mention here. Downloaders and media enthusiasts have plenty of choice like everyone especially the NAS business bet. There are also various sync and cloud options. The HDMI output can be used to configure the NAS when you have no network connection. Connect a mouse, keyboard and monitor, and you can out of the box directly configure the NAS. One improvement is the number and quality of the mobile apps for smartphone and tablet. For us, the only real downside is the price at which this is one of the best NAS devices with two bays.
