A good but not perfect product. Several CONS exist

Summary: Hi Guys, I bought and used this product for 4 months so I'm giving you the review PROS - nice quality of component, not much plastic details. Solid unit. Heavy (especially with loaded disks) - support up to 4 disks (so you could 8 GB JBOD array for a very low price) - various RAID support (I'm using...
Summary: I've been running the DNS-343 for approx. 4 months now and have had consistent issues with the device. I'm running a full bay of 4-2TB WD drives arranged in a RAID5 configuration. Everything seemed fine for the first week or so.
Summary: Here's what I do to have the unit run cooler. Take the front cover off, all it really does is block airflow, and have a small fan blow into it. I use a smal Vornado fan. Now the temp seldom goes above 100, most of the time it's at 90-95.
Great drive. It's easy to connect and very reliable

Summary: Great drive. It's easy to connect and very reliable. Tech support is also fantastic at helping you work through any issues if any should pop up. There are also great at helping you set up for the first time if you're not very tech savvy. ar004214
Summary: If you need a NAS I suggest you buy this one. Its very good for the money, if you use it just as a NAS. If you're going to use all the features, you will be disappointed. I only bought it for Storage and it does a great job.
I would highly recommend this to anyone desiring a network RAID drive for ...

Summary: I have been using this as a RAID drive for about 4 1/2 years now and have had only very minor issues. I would highly recommend this to anyone desiring a network RAID drive for home network use

Summary: This is my third D-Link NAS. I bought a one year ago and it has been on ever since, serving up files reliably to my PC/Mac home network, downloading torrents, and streaming videos to my PS3/XBOX 360 (after installing Twonky Media Server).
Summary: Becasue of the negative reviews I've seen, I almost didn't buy the DNS-343. But decided to buy it based upon my good past experience w/ the DNS-323. My experience so far has been good, solid, unspectacular performance.
