With the ARTiGO A2000 storage server, VIA aims to attract a wider audience to the idea of network attached storage by offering this small, low-power network storage server. A barebones system based on the VIA C7-D processor and a custom Nano-ITX motherboard, the ARTiGO A2000 was designed from top to bottom to be an easy, long-lasting solution for the average user's storage requirements.
After reviewing all of the benchmarks and taking into consideration the purpose of the ARTiGO A2000, I can say that it has shown itself very well in managing and serving data despite its apparent inadequacies in actually performing CPU or graphics intensive tasks. At $239, this low-power network server seems to run cool, quiet, and stable, while still performing well in a battery of tests that put the strain on its Nano-ITX motherboard and VIA C7-D 1.5 GHz processor. When all was said and done, the ARTiGO A2000 did what it was made for: it provided an excellent solution to network storage.
