ASUS TS mini Home Server Review

Today, we're going to take a look at the ASUS TS mini, a home server that's designed to offer easy and simple file storage, automated backups, and file sharing. The ASUS TS mini offers your choice of 500GB or 2TB of storage in an energy-efficient 2-bay design. Both models also come with 500GB of online storage free for the first year.

The TS mini is powered by an Intel Atom processor and runs Microsoft Windows Home Server. In addition to a spare internal hard drive bay, the TS mini supports plenty of external storage options with six USB and two eSATA ports...

I don't like the fact of how difficult it is to swap out drives (not to mention, no hot-swap capability like on the Acer Easystore H340 that I have). 

Still good to have options though, and someone who only needs a couple of drives would be served well by this unit (yes, that pun was intentional).  The add-ons help.

One question I do have is how well did ASUS manage cooling on this device? I know cooling is a weakness of the Acer unit.

I've said this before, Asus has been a very busy little bee lately and continues to crank out all sorts of goodies. I think $350 is a good price point for this backup solution. Easy to use and good value. Great review Marco.
