Summary: I was looking for a second D Link DNS-320 to compliment the one presently in service. Once again Amazon came through with the Storage solution for my needs. The DNS-320 was received without damage. It is now in service on my LAN.
Summary: I am going to buy one and just have it on hand in case one of my current units goes down. You cannot beat it on a price, performance basis. I also noticed that NewEgg has a package deal with a 3tb SeaGate drive that is a great buy. But, I would also go ahead and fill the second bay.
Pros: 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 AC-1750 router 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, since I had two new Seagate Barracuda 4tb drives that I purchased from NewEgg, I decided I...
Cons: I really do not have any "cons". I now have 4 of these units and am very pleased. I did have a "password" issue during the install but found it easy to overcome. In fact, it was so easy that I had forgotten about it until I read one of the previous reviews. I also had problems with them dropping of my network but it turned out to be a router issue. I replaced a D-Link router with the ASUS AC-1750 and have not had any issues. This will turn out to be more of a "pro" th...
Summary: I bought this several months ago. Set up was really easy. Open box, put HD (2TB WD Caviar in my case), follow wizard in device, and that's it. In 15 minutes I was dragging and dropping files from my PC. I'm surprised that many other reviewers had difficulty setting it up. Everything that I've tried with this device has worked the first time and with a few clicks, no hunting for the options or reading manuals several times: * I started using P2P downloads in ~10 minutes.
Summary: This DNS-320 replaced a DNS-323 that lost its flash drive. It works a lot better than the ReadyNAS originally ordered; this is probably due in part to D-Link’s user manual that guides you through the installation and setup in a step by step manner? My advice on getting any of the results the DNS-320 is capable of is to print the D-Link’s user manual (all 118 pages) in landscape to fill the pages and put it into a three ring binder with top of page at the rings.
Summary: this is a solid NAS, very easy to work with hardware-wise, and excellent value. The installed software provides basic home office and small business network storage capabilities for Windows/Linux/OSX clients, although the provided web server interface needs a usability review. The determined hobbyist will be able to go well beyond that and turn the DNS-320 into a pocket-sized linux server by installing fonz fun_plug package system.
Summary: The share center worked great ! After loading netframe work ver 2 SP2 the loading of the software for the share center was smooth... The help from technical service also was good. He walked me through the process to reset the share center and reinstall the D-Link software.
Summary: It is the first time I try to install a NAS at home. With this product it was easy enough to set up every service ready in a couple of days. It is a well known product, therefore you can find easy instructions in internet and youtube. I updated at firmware 2.02, after contacting the customer service, because my hard drive was 3TB and it needs the new firmware version. I install firmware 2.02 before placing the 3TB hard drive inside the NAS.
