I recently reviewed ASUSTOR's AX620XT NAS family, geared to the "Power User to Business" user. This review will focus on the latest entries to the Home to Power User category, the AS6102T (2 drive) and AS6104 (four drive) NASes.

SUSTOR AS6102T & AS6104T

ASUSTOR AS6102T & AS6104T

The AS610XT NASes are virtually identical to the AS620XT NASes with the exception of the processor, memory, LCD panel and drive tray locks. In fact, the board photo shown in the AS620XT review actually shows "AS6104T" marked on the board.

The AS6104 lacks the drive tray locks and LCD display found on the AS6204T. None of the ASUSTOR two-bay models have an LCD display. The chart below, generated from our NAS Charts, shows the four-bay version of three ASUSTOR NAS families. Also included is the four-bay version of the AS510XT family reviewed here. This review will use these three families for comparison in the performance section of the review below.

All of the other features of the AS610XT family of NASes are identical to those of the AS620XT family except as noted above. Since the only other differences are in performance, let's get right to it.
