Measuring just 218mm in depth, 165mm in height and 164mm in width the 1.5kg heavy AS1004T is quite compact for a 4-bay NAS.

 

 

On the left side of the fascia we find the activity LEDs (power/HDD/Ethernet/USB), an IR receiver and a USB 3.0 port.

 

 


At the rear of the AS1004T we see a 120mm exhaust fan and the power button right over a reset button, the USB 3.0 port and the DC in.

 

 

The AS1004T sits ontop of 4 rubber feet and as you can see part of the base is perforated.

 

 

Opening the plastic enclosure is easy, just remove the 4 screws from the rear and pull the largest part backwards.

 

 


On the mainboard we find the 512MB DDR3 SDRAM module, Marvell Armada 385 SoC (underneath a medium sized heatsink), 128Mbit flash memory module and the Marvell Alaska Gigabit Ethernet module.

The AS1004T is compatible only with 3.5" drives which are secured in place via 2 thumbscrews placed on both sides (1 on each).
