The Asustor Drivestor 2 AS1102T is an entry-level storage solution for all of your home's data. It’s two-bay network-attached storage (NAS) device that offers some of features typically found on more expensive NAS devices for a reasonable price. The Asustor Drivestor 2 AS1102T NAS features multi-gig LAN ports and offers 4K video transcoding capabilities. It is also a solid performer that is easy to install, and it comes with a generous selection of apps.

The AS1102T NAS measures 6.5 by 4 by 8.6 inches (HWD) and doesn’t require tools to access the internal drive bays. Its front panel is equipped with a USB 3.2 port and LED indicators for power, status, LAN connectivity, and disk activity. The rear panel has a 2.5-gigabit (2.5Gbps) LAN port, a second USB 3.2 port, a reset button, a power button, and a power jack.

The Asustor DriveStor 2 AS1102T is powered by a 1.4GHz quad-core CPU, 1GB of DDR4 RAM, and 8GB of flash memory. The NAS supports 4K video transcoding and will accommodate 2.5- and 3.5-inch drives (not included) for a total raw capacity of 36TB.

The AS1102T features the Asustor’s ADM 4.0 operating system that offers some features not found on previous versions, such as an improved search engine, updated OpenSSL connectivity, and user-friendly web server tools. They make management tasks a bit easier than on previous Asustor NAS devices. Users can create and share folders, back up data, configure drives, and download apps from the web-based ADM console with a Windows-like user interface. There is also a series of Asustor mobile apps to control certain NAS functions, though the apps lack the complete functionality of the ADM console.
