  • Pros: Supports RAID 5 at a relatively low cost. AD integration available as a free download that works! quotas can be set for users and/or groups.
  • Cons: Buggy Firmware! Latest rev erroneously report fan can't rotate when it can and does at startup. No command line access. Not very speedy.

Great performance from a company you can trust.

  • 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.
  • Pros: Economically priced. High build quality. Attractive design. Solid performance. Stunning OLED display. Tool-less design.
  • Cons: Cooling fans are loud enough to be noticed while used nearby a home theater set-up.

"Completely Unreliable! Firmware renders it useless!"

  • 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!

"Great Interface. Feature packed. But unstable."

  • 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.
