Summary: I bought the DNS-323 about 5 months ago. My intention was to install a single 1.5 TB drive for the time being, and then add a second network drive in the future. My immediate purpose was to keep two copies of my backups: one on an existing external drive and one on this new Network Attached Storage...
Summary: It has been 2-3 weeks since I got this installed. I have 1 TB in each bay. I have a mac laptop, 2 windows laptop (win7 and xp) connected to this. Pros: 1. Compact sized 2. Very quiet 3. Doesn't get hot 4. Installation was easy 5. Does what it is supposed to - back it up Cons: 1.
Summary: I just got this in the mail and was able to set this up fairly quickly without any issues as far as set up is concern. Once set up was completed, however, I noticed one quick fault that jumped out significantly. I had two 750GB drives installed formatted with RAID 1.
Data loss due to lack of support for non-latin character in file names
Konstantin Kuzmin, Amazon
3 October 2008
Summary: I'm greatly disappointed with this device. I experienced a data loss caused by inability of the device to support non-latin characters in files and folders names. Non-latin characters are simply replaced by _ (underscores). And I am using the latest firmware revision available at the time (1.05).
Summary: This unit works fine from hardware point of view but user interface and capabilities are seriously lacking. * It is upposed to be a pretty high capacity data server but allows only 8 charachter passwords. This means my 16 char windows password will not match up ever.
Summary: Very, very easy to setup hardware. Pop the drives in without screws in less than 5 seconds and you're off to the races. I Wish it had eSata, but it's focus is on NAS. Software barely gets the job done. Administration of userids, shares, groups and permissions is painfully crude.
Summary: It works. But its very slow, thats my experience anyway. transfer rate is on average about 15 megs, and thats on a gigabit network too... on that basis i probably wouldn't recommend it, unless speed is not important to you. I have it setup as 2 mirrored disks - Hitachi 650gigs in my case.
Excerpt: Inledning Underbart med en NAS tänkte jag när jag köpte denna. Äntligen kan man, som reklamen säger, lagra allt på ett ställa och komma åt det vart man än är. Jag packade upp enheten när jag kommit hem och pluggade i den i min router.
