Asustor has produced a well-made, intuitive and reasonably fast four bay NAS but it doesn’t excel in any particular area. Consequently while buyers are unlikely to be disappointed with their purchase we feel there are better options in this hotly contested price bracket.

There's no denying the Asustor AS-604T is a very well featured and sturdily built NAS drive. Given its close facsimile to QNAP products, there's little reason to choose the newcomer – except perhaps for price. A comparable QNAP model could be the TS-469...

A comparable QNAP model could be the TS-469 which sells for around £600 in diskless form; the AS-604T can be found for closer to £400. If data write performance could be improved it'd be a closer contest, with the Asustor becoming even more attractive.
