Summary: Taken all round, we are glad about the D-Link DNS-345 NAS we have tested. This competitively priced device provides a user with an array of such sought-for services like data storage and information transmission both in home and small office networks. The only thing we were left a bit puzzled by was a bizarre peculiarity of the device to have higher data access speed when no RAID-array is used.
Pros: Competitive price, IPv6 support, Data encryption supported, Built-in help, Support of Active Directory, Quite high data access speed, Ability to manage the device using HTTPS
Cons: Small and noisy fans located in the case of the device, User must at first create a RAID-array using the web-interface in English, Russian web-interface runs all over the screen, Not fully translated web-interface
Excerpt: We were not very impressed the last time we reviewed a D-Link NAS. The DNS-1100 did have room for four disks and had two network ports, but it wasn't very fast and it's wasn't that affordable. Still, we are curious to find out what the £150-cheaper D-Link ShareCenter Quattro DNS-345 has to offer.
Excerpt: Après un test convainquant du DNS-325, un NAS de la marque D-Link capable d’accueillir jusqu’à deux disques durs, nous poursuivons notre étude de la gamme ShareCenter avec le modèle DNS-345. Ce nouveau modèle se démarque grâce à quatre baies permettant d’accueillir autant de disques durs.
Pros: Montage sans outil, Simplicité d'installation et d'utilisation, Qualité de fabrication
