Asus TS mini NAS
Released November, 2009
The Pros:Better than a stand-alone NAS - includes a full PC with Windows Home Server for more advanced functionality. Dual eSATA ports, 6 USB ports - for additional external storage, other peripherals. Gigabit network connection for enhanced throughput on compatible network hardware.
The Cons:Only includes 2 internal SATA ports - not good for a large amount of storage / a large RAID setup. Ugly monolith of an enclosure.
The Asus TS mini NAS is a small-office/at-home (SOHO) server based on a 1.66GHz Intel Atom processor, up to 2GB of RAM, and a variety of expansion options including dual SATA, six USB, and two eSATA. It utilizes gigabit-per-second Ethernet access to back up to 10 PCs all at once, while still offering quick access to any files stored within.
