    Re: Asustor Nimbustor 4 (AS5304T)

    I have a (very) old Asustor As-304T model filled with 4x4Tb WD Red discs.
    The only thing that I would complain about is its noise. It is just too noisy.
    Otherwise, love it. Software especially.
    Which is bad, as that means I can not keep it in the living room, connected to the TV (as it should be).
    Building DIY NAS in HTPC chassis now to replace it.
    The real kicker would be if Asustor (or Qnap or .."any NAS maker") were selling their OS so that we can install on more common hardware. That would rock. because ADM has exactly ALL functionality that I want.

    PS: Yes I know about FreeNAS (not for me) or OMV 4(again not completely for me).
    The more you live, less you die. More you play, more you die. Isn't it great.

    Not tried it personally but you can basicallyget synology's os b going with xpenology.

    Like I say I haven't tried it but others seem to rate it from what I can see.

    Yes, I saw that one too. It seems it is not that easy to install it. Especially as I am on an AMD APU (2500G). And honestly, not enough free time to sit down and work on it. But that would be great if it could work.
