Asustor AS5002T Questions

Hello,

I was looking to replace my aging Dlink NAS, and was intrigued by the idea of getting an Asustor AS5002T as a hybrid NAS HTPC.

Before I purchase I would like to know more about this particular model.

1.) Can it play HD (1080P) youtube videos?

2.) Does it support international Bluetooth keyboards (ones with non-standard keylayout)?

Thanks.

(edited for clarity)

Hi Queries,
1.) Can it play HD (1080P) youtube videos? -> yes
2.) Does it support international Bluetooth keyboards (ones with non-standard key layout)? -> we sugesstion you use Airemote ( http://www.asustor.com/admv2?type=4&sub ... tw#content ) or purchasing remote control (http://shop.asustor.com/index.php?route ... duct_id=50)
Thanks!!! ;)

Thank you for the response. It is good to know about the youtube ability.
I would like a yes or no answer for question 2 though as I do not use remotes or virtual keyboards (I only use full size physical keyboards).

Can it use Bluetooth keyboards yes or no?

If not, can it use RF keyboards yes or no?

Thanks again for your previous response,
Queries

I believe it's "partial yes" for bluetooth keyboard. They tested those bluetooth dongles:

It should be "yes" for RF keyboard because it's only a usb HID device for this case. I have one. :)

Ohhh, thanks for the response Orion.
I could pick up a cheap RF keyboard if need be.

This actually makes my decision harder. ;)

Synology DS215j or Asustor AS5002T
The Synology I like for my familiarity with another of their products (the DS1812+) and it's solid reliability. The Asustor though... the interesting extra features has me very curious as it may be worth the unknown factor of buying an Asustor product over a Synology.

Hmm an additional question came to mind.

Can/does Adobe Flash run in the browser on the AS5002T.
(for Rdio, the internet music service as I noticed there is no Rdio app available)
