Have been using for years - great, rugged little unit.

Patti M. Sheaffer "computergeek", Amazon

  • Summary: I've been using two of these for several years. There was one complaint early-on, but downloading a BIOS for the DNS-343 fixed that: the fan stayed on all the time. Now (after the BIOS upgrade) the fan only comes on when it needs to.

DNS-343

Fletcher, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought mine used with the latest firmware installed. I am also surprized at the bad reviews of this unit. I got the unit, I set it up within 20 minutes and had my drives partitioned and running within the hour.

Excellent little NAS!

Josh, Amazon
28 September 2012
  • Summary: I have used a Drobo, a Patriot memory media NAS, and then the D-Link DNS-343. Without a doubt this has been the most reliable unit thus far. I had issues prior with the other units hanging up while trying to stream media from it.

Great NAS

David K., Newegg
3 February 2012
  • Pros: I've used several NAS devices and have had the least aggrevation with this unit. Very useful for large backups. Works fine with 3tb drives.
  • Cons: Can get hot at times. Will run a bit slower than some NAS devices but not a big deal unless you're routinely moving large amount of data.

Great performance from a company you can trust.

Ohadlesh, Mwave.com
11 June 2011
  • 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.
  • 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.

A very good network attached storage device

A Conrad "Ask Conrad", Amazon
2 February 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this when it went on sale for $200. I was pleasantly surprised that the firmware was up-to-date. I chose to do a manual install/configuration of the DNS-343 and skipped the disk install completely.

Still Excellent

Alan B., Newegg
17 January 2011
  • Summary: I am posting this update to my original post to provide some insight into long term ownership of this device.
  • Pros: I have had this device for over two years and have not experienced any of the problems that some of the users seem to be having. There are no problems with overheating (filling volumes with 1TB truecrypt containers). It is a great NAS from my perspective and would buy again.
  • Cons: I don't like that the OLED flashes "drive full" when one of the hard drives is 95% full. I would like to be able to turn that off to avoid the annoying flash.
