The specs look good.

Compared to some QNAP models like the tvs-1282t3 its just missing a few features like up to 12 drive bays, dual M.2 ports, Thunderbolt 3 (4 ports), 64GB of RAM and processors options up to a core i7 7700. Possibly more but a lot of those features aren't necessary or at least aren't necessary if you want to cut the price down from about ~$3400 USD.

So if this ASUSTOR is reasonably priced it could be a great option. I'm thinking less then ~$1000 USD.

Might as well build my own at this rate.

That's a good point.

If I were to do that it would be a good excuse to buy / build an AMD RyZen 7 1700 / 1700X based system or perhaps even an upcoming AMD Threadripper based system.

What? Are you nuts?

As someone who is in progress of building one, I'd shy away from high power systems.

And a cheap 2/4 port raid card PCI-E 1x

That's how a NAS should be built. What you are describing is over the top system.

Only 4 HDD... it's impossible to find a compact case with 10 or more 3.5" bay
Too bad asustor is using an old cpu with hdmi 1.4
I'd love to see a NAS with a recent ultra low power cpu, like they use on laptop
