Summary: I needed a NAS that could accommodate 4 SATA drives. This enclosure was priced just right, and online reviews praised its ease of use and flexibility. I have been using this NAS for the past 6 months and have experienced no downtime at all. The initial setup could not be simpler and the integrated OLED display shows you everything you need to know at a glance. This thing is built like a tank.
"Completely Unreliable! Firmware renders it useless!"
4 April 2010
Pros: There is nothing to like about this product, as it doesn't work.
Cons: D-Link's poorly written firmware often renders the product completely useless. Also, some very important and basic features like the included "remote backup" (i.e. back up to an identical DNS-343 on your LAN) don't work!
Pros: 4 Drive bays expandable up to 16 TB. Easy setup with software. Informative OLED display. Many different drive configurations (RAID 0, 1, 5 JBOD). Internal fan keeps drives cool, and fan is relatively quiet.
Cons: Print server is very unstable and becomes virtually useless because of the stability issues. Windows often has trouble detecting in Windows Networks w/o D-Link software. Depending on router can take enormous amounts of bandwidth when transferring.
