Summary: I purchased this so that I had access to my working files both at my home office and my "real" office. My goal was to keep all images in one place and access them from either desktop or laptop. I have been using DropBox and a few other similar online cloud storage options. The drawback to using these services is that the files go UP from one computer --- stored on the cloud --- DOWN to the other computer. With large image files, this can take a very long time.
Summary: I've had this NAS for about a month now and no problems so far. Works great with Time Machine for our two Macbook Pro's. Took a while for the initial save over our wireless network, but it backs up seamlessly every hour like it should. I also have one PC backed up on it and that was easy to setup also (Although Win8 doesn't have an automatic backup feature :-( ) I have installed two 2TB Toshiba 7200rpm SATA3 HD's and the've been working great with this NAS
Summary: Bought this as a gift, after initial configuration it works pretty well for a basic NAS. I had a few random hard drives laying around and it accepted both. It does not require that both hard drives match so you can use different vendors, speed and/or size hard drives. I didn't set it up as JBOD, so each hard drive has their own SMB share (volume 1 and volume 2).
Great, inexpensive way to increase storage capacity!

Summary: I already had 3 of these Storage bays. Each one has two 3tb Seagate Barracuda drives. Very happy with the setup and, at this time, do not really have a storage issue. A few weeks ago, I installed a new ASUS router, also from Amazon, and it crossed my mind that these bay storage systems were getting more expensive all the time and, if one of my bays went down, I would not have a backup. So, I started searching around for an additional unit.
Summary: After a few years I've racked up 4 external drives that I need to keep switching just to access my files. I purchased this as a centralized storage solution and I'm very impressed with it. I'd recommend it to anyone that's looking for a reasonably priced network storage solution for their home. I have a background in IT so the setup was pretty simple, took me about an hour all things considered. But the setup disk is really straightforward, you can't go wrong.
Summary: I selected this item because I needed an inexpensive network server. I am not an expert in this matter, and the price and D-Link name convinced me to try it. It took me about one hour to figure out how to get it going (remember, I am not an expert), and since then it has been working fine. My server need are not excessive, having only two users with one program's files on the server. We also use it to backup our computers. So it works well for me.
