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: 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. If you want all the other features and intend to use all the other features I suggest you look elsewhere for a more robust system.
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 JBOD) including 10 and 5 (never tried 5 though) - very easy setup - works as DLNA Server, so I'm able to see pics and movies from this device right on my PS3 and TV - very...
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. I really like how quiet it is w/ the WD Green drives (there is a time lag after the drives spin down to conserve power). I installed 4 WD 2TB Green drives, and configured it for Raid 1/EXT 3. I plugged it into my home Verizon FIOS wireless LAN.
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. After that I noticed that the status of my NAS had changed to "degraded" and the drive monitoring did not show drive 4 as present.
Very good NAS solution if you need a simple way to store lots of data

Summary: This is my third D-Link NAS. I bought a DNS-323 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). Based on my mostly positive experience with D-link products and price-to-features ratio, I decided to stick with the brand.
