Be smart and back that stuff up

Conclusion and Final Thoughts

The ASUSTOR AS1002T v2 is as impressive as its predecessor, the ASUSTOR AS1002T. There are virtually no visible differences between these devices however internal components were modified. The new CPU chip is clocked much higher on AS1002T v2 than AS1002T models. What is surprising is that even when the CPU is being pushed pretty hard the passive cooling kept it relatively cool (under 70C). That being said the device is very quiet even under load. If you looking for a quieter device that just works, AS1002Tv2 can help.

Networking performance of the ASUSTOR AS1002Tv2 has all of the expectations a Gigabit networking is bringing to the table. For an entry level two bay NAS I think the transfer speeds are very much with in Gigabit limits.

Asustor Data Master offers a great deal of applications that you can install and run free of charge. One of the very useful home multimedia applications which are supported on AS1002T v2 is Plex Media Server. If you looking for a file storage solution that can provide you with entertainment as well AS1002Tv2 is a right fit.

 

I feel that you are getting a better device with the second iteration of the AS1002T and I strongly feel that for a budget/entry level NAS the ASUSTOR AS1002T v2 is a good choice.

  1. Hi – I am planning on buying this or maybe its big brother 1004 v2 – my main goal is to use it as my music library, so sendikg hi res files (multichanbel is about 400 mb per song) shouldn’t be a problem? Nas —> Nvidia Shield -> AVR (no wifi, only cable)

  2. Hello,

    If you are looking for NAS repository for your music then this is a pretty good device to have on your network. If you have mp3s and plan to stream from the device then that wouldn’t be an issue. When you start to get in to lossless audio like flac and dsd/dts streaming these formats from 1004v2 i do not recommend. If you looking for a 2 bay NAS you should look in to something newer like AS 4002T.
    Reach out to me via e mail if you have any more questions.

Got something to say, then say it!
