It works well but design needs improvement
12 April 2013
Summary: It gets the job done but I have multiple gripes. Pros: none really over competitors Cons: proprietary formatting system, no built in encryption, difficult to set up software (cant use microsoft software to attach to it initially), if you change anything you have to reformat and you loose everything,...
Summary: Also bummed as after I bought this the 3TB drive went on Shell Shocker deal for $40 less.
Pros: Small, quite, low power, low noise. Has many nice features. DLNA/uPnP works, with some issues, NFS & FTP support. User access control, supports large drives 3TB/4TB.
Cons: While UPnP/DLNA is in use the server peak out at 100% CPU and becomes not very useful for anything else. Tends to drop connections both from my Windows 7 x64 & my Windows 2003 server during large file transfers of many files. D-Link has me reset, to see if that corrected it. I am dissappointed, m...
Summary: I have just bough this inexpensive NAS in order to replace a computer that was completely dedicated for NAS purposes. This computer was not used intensively (sporadic usage, not 24x7). Please note these remarks come after a setup process and partial usage of the device.
Summary: I was looking to buy a NAS system for quite some time but the prices were a big deterrent, until I stumbled upon this. Getting started was easy, the top cover comes off easily and installing drives was quick. I inserted two old SATA drives that were just laying around.
Summary: I just use this for Network storage as a Mirror drive and it does that OK. The software did not work with Internet Explorer so spent time trying to sort that, In the end I accessed it in Firefox and that worked OK.
Summary: When I purchased this it was to replace a failing Lacie unit, two things had to be present for me to consider. 1) A simple raid 0 2) The ability to pass though an external USB for larger drive with less valuable data Item one it was fine on, nothing spectacular but it did its job.
Summary: I bought the ShareCenter Pulse because of the cheap price and the DLNA-feature. The NAS does its job like described on the box (setup and configuration is very easy and DLNA works fine), but it has a small and very loud fan and the performance is out of question.
Summary: Excellent seller and quick delivery, just shame the d-link Share-Centre isn't quite living up to expectations. Likes: Very stylish and compact Extremely easy to set up Dislikes: The micro fan gets very loud in-fact when i turn my Tv off you can clearly hear the fan spinning through two walls.
Summary: Really impressed with the dlink 320 for the money. However I'm really disappointed that it doesn't work with Time Machine on the Mac as advertised. There hasn't been a firmware update for a long time so I'm not holding my hopes up that this will be fixed.
