Conclusion: D-Link has done a fine job with product presentation. There is plenty of consumer friendly information and product summary data on the retail box, which improves the chances that the DNS-323 SATA RAID Gigabit NAS will satisfy the consumer needs. Nobody likes surprises, and D-Link has made sure that you get the right tool for the job. Appearance is somewhat basic, with no use of reflective (chrome/polished) accents or finish.
Pros: Extremely functional NAS, Very good data write speeds, Single, JBOD, RAID 0, and RAID 1 disk arrays, Convenient compact size, Simple HTML interface, High-quality metal enclosure, Tool-less design, Attractive yet simple black and silver finish
Cons: Poor cooling design, Needs rubber feet for side mounting, Includes outdate CAT-5 cable
