Useless "tech support"

Dmitry, Amazon
5 December 2009
  • Summary: D-Link Indian tech support is one of the most infuriating experiences you can have. After a 1.5 hour hold, the tech read through a series of telephone scripts, none of which addressed the problems with this DNS-323. When none of her "solutions" worked, my call was simply disconnected.

D-Link: Worst Tech Support EVER!

Mikey, Amazon
14 December 2008
  • Summary: I know this sounds dumb, but despite the horror-shows detailed here and elsewhere on the Web about D-Link's legendarily crappy support, I decided to buy the DNS-323. Hey, what could possibly go wrong? I owned my DNS-323 for just under two weeks.

Unreliable/unable to recover from hard drive failure

C. Gafton, Amazon
24 October 2008
  • Summary: The D-Link DNS-323 is a dual SATA enclosure, boasting an embedded Linux running on a Marvel board with an ARM5 processor. You put in the drives, and it configures them using the software raid stack from its embedded Linux.

Why you should not buy this product

M. Anderson, Amazon
24 October 2008
  • Summary: Based upon its specifications and price, this product seems like a great deal. And if you just need to share hard drives over your network without any security or passwords, it seem to work very well. Here's why I'm returning mine. 1.

It's actually not bad but dlink tech support is AWFUL!

Steve, Amazon
6 September 2008
  • Summary: So actually I think this unit offers a lot of bang for the buck. I have used it for nearly a year now and I haven't had any real issues with it. I do wish the SAMBA server wasn't quite so hobbled, and the way you assign access restrictions can be cumbersome, but it does work.

reasonably fast, hackable, but noisy, bugged

EvilGerman, Amazon
9 April 2008
  • Summary: Good: - fast (for a NAS) - hackable, can run torrent, media server etc. - clever case, easy to add a disk Bad: - Noisy - hard disk noise resonates in the case - Will get very hot w/ 2 harddisks - When I added a second harddisk, it said it would format the new one - it stated the model number so I am...

Data loss... Non-english filenames problem

M. Sidorov "msv", Amazon
18 December 2006
  • Summary: First impression was very good. Nice looking unit. Quiet. Small footprint. Easy setup (if it worked..). I was going to use this nas to store my media library. I have a large library and quite a few files are in russian, polish, hungarian, german.. you know - all those strange looking characters.

Mac user? Forget it! But I'd be hard pressed to recommend for Windows either.

Timothy B. Martin, Amazon
15 December 2006
  • Summary: First, it didn't work with my Seagate 400GB drive -- and although this sort of problem may be addressed in firmware updates, please be aware that without a functioning drive you can't update the firmware.

Rubbish

S. Young "Shawson", Amazon
15 June 2011
  • Summary: Very buggy- would frequently just drop off the network- then come back and spend 3 hours rebuilding the raid array. Sold it and got a Netgear ReadNAS Duo, which so far hasn't messed up once, Could you imagine?

Not what it says on the can

A. M. Smith "Ado Smith", Amazon
11 July 2009
  • Summary: I tried this for a couple of days and sent it back. Bought a Netgear RND2000. It simply is no match for the netgear. Build quality compared to the netgear is poor. Drives do not fit properly. Performace is poor and features thin on the ground.
