Summary: There are fancier NAS enclosures around, but for the money, it's hard to beat the D-Link DNS line. In my rough tests, the DNS-325 came up about 2-3 times faster than the previous DNS-323, mainly courtesy of its faster processor. Drives from the DNS-323 popped right in and worked. I'm still waiting for the new firmware that will add support for 3TB drives, but it's already available in beta form (Oct. 2011), so I'm not worried.
Pros: reliable, inexpensive, standardized, third-party app support
Cons: could still be faster, 4 bays would be nicer
Summary: Excellent value and a very good replacement for my USB drive plugged into my router's USB port. Cheap in every sense of the word. Word like a charm, took 30 minutes to set up and everything. Annoying seeing how cannot access one drive while the other one is being formatted - in Standard mode. Didn't try any of the "apps". I can reliably see it as a mapped drive and it is fine for now. No fancy features at this price.
Pros: cheap, reasonably fast, easy to use, excellent value for the money
Summary: Got rid of my pc so i needed something to hold my files outside my laptop. This does the job very well. Can share my files on the network. Even has a media streaming server. So i paired on my ps3 and it works like a charm. Can get a little noisy but i'm not sure if it's because of my hdds.
Summary: The DNS-325 is a wonderful NAS for home and small business networks. It offers an extreme level of flexibility through the use of a "fun_plug" script, which allows you to administrate the system via SSH, and install any software you wish. I'm running an IRC bouncer, torrent client and more off of my NAS.
Pros: Very sleek, Inexpensive, Supports complete customization
Summary: I picked up one of these to set up a home backup share after my wife and daughter lost most of their data when the laptop hard drive died. I was planning on getting some kind of media storage for my music and this also fits the bill. A familiarity with assigning network share permissions would be a benefit if you plan on doing so. Sometimes the can be tricky when you assign different permissions to groups and the users within those groups.
Summary: I got the box running with 2 500 gb hard drives. It has a preety fast speed. It was easy to install and configure and has nice features to save power. One thing I find difficult is volumes share. Basically form what I see you have to devide the HDD in volumes if not some applications don't what to write on user created folders (the torrent). User permision is not trivial if you try to have guest space as well as private.
Pros: Good Price, Easy to install, Add-ons possibility, Very good speed, Good customer support
Cons: Menu navigation sometimes is slow and difficult, Not so many addons on line form dlink, User policies and shares are not so easy to configure
Pros: The d-link nas325 is a good product for the price, although not perfect. The author comments that you can only create one share folder per volume is inaccurate. You can create a share folder for each user which you elect. You can allow any or none of the
Cons: The software could use some upgrading for managing the NAS. It works, but it could be even better if the management software were improved. Future versions of firmware should support 3T drives, but not as of today per D-LINK web site.
