Summary: I purchased the D-Link share center to share center to store and share files between two office computers. I am not super techy and was intimidated by the thought of setting this up by myself. I bought the unit, and with minimal customer service help was able to get it up and running. Since then I added the second computer, also with tech support help.
Summary: I've ordered this product knowing exactly how it'll work as I've researched a lot and a friend helped me which hdd's to choose. Went for WD RED 1TB, which are designed to be used with a NAS. Set everything up and I love my solution now. Everything works smooth, fast and the interface is so easy to configure.
Summary: Length:: 0:39 Mins I called and also I wrote to D-Link technical support about the CLOUD service that suppose to be provided by this product and they confirm that this product the cloud service it is not working yet on the DNS-327L as they advertised on their web page. [...]on the "How it work" tab.
Summary: I can't really give an in-depth review of this piece of technology. I returned it because I really did not need. I just only took a look at the build quality. Looks decent, as far as performance; look at other reviews to make your final decision.
Summary: You have to go through the whole installation process to be able to register to mydlink.com. I did not register when I installed my device, so I had to format again my HDD in order to get at the registration step. That was not fun. Other then that, I like it.
Summary: A good unit with some software issues. The unit names each drive in the order of installation. I had issues with changing the name of the drive. The unit had to be reformatted every drive install. Be cautious and do lose your data. The hard drives formatted by the unit can be read independently using an UNIX machine. The included software package works decently. Data transfer rates are very good.
Mydlink Android app was not available for several weeks and remote function has flaws.

Summary: I use this storage to store network camera recordings and to view the recordings remotely. Because this is diskless storage, the performance is not really up to the storage so I will not comment on it, except that I use WD AV-GP 3TB AV Video Hard Drive: 3.5 Inch, SATA II, 64 MB Cache and it seems that the performance is OK. There are 3 major cons with this storage for me. 1.
Summary: The DNS-327L may be the most stylish of our budget NAS enclosures, but its sleek, unobtrusive looks come at a cost. In theory, it should be easy to fit your hard disks – you detach the top lid, screw on two plastic handles and slide the drives into place. In practice, we found the drives hard to locate in their connectors without a good push, and it took us several attempts to get the D-Link up and running.
Summary: Bought based on reviews here and elsewhere. Didn't get anything like the performance out of this that others had described. Tried with 7200 rpm and SSD but little difference. THere's clearly a throughput issue with the hardware that limits transfer rates (I'm running a gigabit network) so not really up to the job. However, I can use if for archive and I'll do that.
