ASUS recently introduced us to the AiCloud, their own cloud-based storage system you can use with your other ASUS devices. To showcase the ASUS lifestyle, we were shown a basic home-office system using various ASUS products such as the ET2300 AiO and RT-AC66U AiCloud-capable router.

The AiCloud is available with most ASUS routers and can be utilized in a number of ways. First off you connect your own external flash drive or hard drive to the router via USB which will act as your own personal cloud storage. By connecting it to the router and a bit of basic setup, you can now access your data from wherever or whenever you need. What’s good about the AiCloud is that it’s totally free and easily accessible from your PCs, Android, and Apple devices.

The router featured was the RT-AC66U, ACER’s top of the line router is an upgrade from the RT-N66U we previously reviewed. Under the hood, the RT-AC66U features up to 450mbps transfers, 265MB RAM, and 128MB of flash memory. Just like its predecessor the “Dark Knight”, the router packs four gigabit LAN ports, a gigabit WAN port, and two USB 2.0 ports. It comes with all the same proprietary software and more. The RT-AC66U retails for P11,990.
