Device is good. Firmware has near-fatal flaws.

Harold Guthrie, Amazon

  • 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 (NAS). The reason for keeping two backups is because I make drive images of my computers when I initially get them, and then periodically (once or twice a year).

  • 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. Tech support is terrible - goes to India and the guys are clueless....

still unsure

  • 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. The configuration page shows 736GB unused, which is reasonable. normally you won't get the entire space since some of the space is used for swap and what not by the drive.

Works good enough but keep this in mind!!

  • 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. In this day and age of security concious world watch out. 8 charachters is by no means safe.

Does what it says on the tin... slowly!

  • 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: Все бы ничего, если бы не скорость работы... Зачем ему гигабитный интерфейс, непонятно, все равно скорость работы меньше чем на сотке, быстрее уже не успевает процессор.
  • Pros: Недорогой, умеет качать торренты, за пару лет использования не было ни одной проблемы
  • Cons: Медленная работа

DNS 323 - Gör sitt jobb, även om den väsnas lite

  • 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. Ställde in en ip-adress som automatiskt skulle tilldelas routern så att det inte skulle bli problem i framtiden. Jag mappade upp enheten manuellt på min dator så att datorn ser enheten som en hårddisk. Sen var det klart.
  • Pros: Bekvämt, säkert
  • Cons: Högljudd, seg att starta
