The AS40 series diamond-cut exterior has a magnetic cover for easy access to hard drives within. Its front panel hexagonal design creates a lightweight, yet strong frame for added durability and protection. The AS40 series also comes with a better cooling design, allowing for better airflow, allowing for higher longevity and lower failure rates.ASUSTOR’s AS40 series introduces its new tool-free caddies as a way to simplify installation of hard drives. Each NAS comes included with brackets to install the drive easily. On the AS4000 series, hot-swapping of hard drives is supported, allowing you to change hard drives easily without powering down the NAS.The Marvell 64bit CPU found inside the AS40 series contains two cores clocked at 1.6Ghz powered by the ARM Cortex A72 microarchitecture. Compared with the Cortex-A15 core, the Cortex-A72 is three and a half times faster while providing seventy-five percent reduced power. The 64bit architecture supports up to 16TB on a single volume. The AS40 series also supports DDR4 RAM soldered onto the motherboard, providing even faster bandwidth and lower power consumption than DDR3.ASUSTOR’s AS40 series of NAS are the first line of consumer NAS made by ASUSTOR to feature 10gbps of bandwidth over Ethernet. Our 10gbps Ethernet port uses RJ45 which are different from SFP+ as it is more accessible to consumers, and flexible with different Ethernet speeds and standards.The AS40 series devices produce only 19 decibels of noise during system standby, equivalent to the almost inaudible sound of a pin drop. During system operation, only 32 decibels of noise is produced, equivalent to the hushed tones of a quiet library, allowing the AS40 series devices to seamlessly and comfortably integrate into any living environment.
