Very Slow

Brian Luke, Amazon
18 February 2009
  • Summary: I was unable to get better than 10 MB/Sec on this device (a newer Rev B1) with the latest 1.02 firmware despite full gigabit Ethernet connectivity. The little fan on this thing is LOUD too.

Poor product, poor service.

Michael, Amazon
28 April 2007
  • Summary: Purchased DSM-G600 (B1); upgraded firmware to 1.02. Very difficult to configure and setup. Will not recognize any drive over 250 GB. This is not documented anywhere except in an obscure FAQ page on the D-Link web page. Tech support is not worth the time. I was disconnected multiple times. I knew more about the product from reading online documentation then tech support did. Returned for a refund. Save your money, save your time. DO NOT PURCHASE THIS PRODUCT.

Don't waste your money on this device

W. Bellant "Gamer Geek", Amazon
15 January 2007
  • Summary: Slow wireless transfer speeds No way to automatically power-on after a power failure. The web interface was confusing and hard to navigate. It wouldn't recognize my NTFS formatted data drive. I was forced to format the thing and spend hours transferring the same data back onto the drive. I'm a pretty flexible guy but it just wasn't a useful addition to my network, so I returned it.

Doesn't live up to the specs on the box

A. M. Steiner, Amazon
13 January 2007
  • Summary: Gigabit? The speeds are about 5-6 megabytes per second. Does that sound like Gigabit? Since it is a file server you would expect to be able to have multiple shares right? wrong. Only one at any one time. Mac compatible? Hardly. It's more like the Mac can connect, but it doesn't have Appleshares or Appletalk/IP. The UI is really bad. I updated to 1.02 of the firmware, but that didn't help any of these problems. Other than that it was great.

This Product Stinks DO NOT BUY IT!!!

routerhead99 "Routerhead99", Amazon
30 November 2006
  • Summary: Full list price is listed as $337 or something (it is not worth it for the $157) this device does not work with a Windows platform I bought a rev b1 updated the firmware to v1.02 and stuck a Seagate 40GB drive in. Thsi product does not allow the drive to be formatted in ANY windows file system type (FAT16, FAT32 or NTFS) ONLY Linux partition types (EXT2 or EXT3)!

Avoid at all costs - TERRIBLE SUPPORT and SPOTTY PERFORMANCE

J. Turkel, Amazon
14 September 2006
  • Summary: I purchased this item on 6/3/06 from Amazon, and a 250GB ATA/IDE Hitachi drive to go in it from another vendor. It all went together fine and I could mount the volume easily enough. The first thing I noticed is that it's wi-fi wouldn't work with WEP with my Powerbook. It'd work without encryption on the Airport Extreme, but not with WEP or with WPA. I noted that and used it without the wi-fi for a few days. I noted it wouldn't hold time at all consistently.

Unfortunately I have bought a DLINK product again...

Stein Ingvaldsen, Amazon
22 December 2005
  • Summary: I can only blame myself. After having a lot of problems with the DSM-320; I still managed to be dumb enough to purchase a DSM-g600 rev. A. (even worse than rev. B) It frequently disconnects from my computer (every 10 min)and freezes. I have to pull the power cord to get it running again... I was promised ftp server functionality, rev.a has not got it! This is the second time DLINK has stolen my money by selling me junk. Do not make the same misstake as me!

Another poor NAS implementation

Amiga, Amazon
19 December 2005
  • Summary: Bottom line, got it up (B revision) and working, but it wasn't so easy. Files can't be larger than 2GB, forget about backing up videos. Write speed seems slow. Netgear and D-Link seemed to be tied on poor NAS implementations, one needs software to work on each client (Windows only) and the other can't back up real world file sizes. Oh, and support is based overseas where they seem to be reading off scripts.
