Summary: This is my second DNS-323. I've been pretty happy with my other unit despite some minor snafus. In the end I was looking for a low power, low cost, moderately fast NAS that would work well on a Windows network and I got it.
Summary: D-link has advised me after 5 failed attempts (all varied) to format the two WD 2TB Caviar Green drives that DNS-323 is not compatible with WD's advanced format system and they do not intend on making any changes. I intend on returning everything.
Excellent product. Be careful with some HDs incompatibility!

Summary: This device offers an excellent solution for data storage for a home wireless network. I wanted to be able to turn-off the desktop PC I was using as data server because it's not an energy efficient solution. Instead I bought this NAS and could not be more happy.
Summary: Nice little device. Does it's job and does it great! It is a bit underpowered and therefore transfer rate is a not very fast, but it loads 100mbps network on 95%. I bet with gigabyte connection you will receive more than 8-9 MBps.
Summary: Initially I was ecstatic with this little NAS, however on day two of setting it up the power supplies appeared to have died while connecting my third computer using the D-Link DNS-323 CD connection software.
Summary: Upgraded firmware to 1.06, no problems. Installed 2 1Tb hardrives and it works great. I use the usb port to connect my UPS and it recognized it and monitors it. Works exactly as I needed, speed is good in Raid 1 mode and reliable.
Summary: When looking for a NAS drive for my home network, simplicity and redundancy were my primary needs. The D-Link DNS-323 2-Bay Network Storage Enclosure is the perfect solution. Although the drive comes with many features and abilities, RAID 1 mirroring (same data is written to both drives for data...
Summary: Sept 2012 - I have two of these now and they are fine. Network speeds are never as fast as I'd like them to be even with a gigabit router. One runs a pair of 1TB drives and the other runs a pair of 2TB. Both run Caviar Green drives and no failures. One is at work, one at home.
Great NAS: I will list here the problems and the easy solution

Summary: System: 1 XP laptop, 1 XP desktop and 1 Vista laptop DNS-323: is set up with 2 "1TB SEAGATE Barracuda 7200.11" Router: Dlink N DIR-655 Speed from testing: 8MB/sec: ~125sec for 1GB Streaming seems to be good when I watch a movie with fast forwards and rewinds.
Summary: Bought this NAS after doing quite a bit of research. Settled on this one because of price, and features I could use. The NAS is currently setup in Raid 1 mode, and I use my own backup software SyncBack which schedules all backups.
