2 Bay D-Link ShareCenter DNS-320L Cloud Network Storage Enclosure SATA HDD is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It may be cheap and not the fatest but it's certainly value for money Basic but good value for money NAS unit. Only one Ethernet port so not the fastest but as an entry level unit it does the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value I never had a NAS before so for me this one is really good. Although main disadvantage was that file transfer is a lot quicker on the Ethernet cable instead of connecting to it via wifi router. So no I have my laptop connected via cable and the file transfer is much much quicker.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value for money, excellent entry level NAS Let's start off with some issues, When swapping out the drives I have no problem having to screw/unscrew a handle per drive but I have found that insertion is not as smooth as it should be; I have to put force into inserting the HDD which then caused it to slam into the connectors, risking damage. The web interface used to control the device is slower than it should be considering I've got <1ms ping via lan. It's takes about 2-5 seconds to load the home page of the management console and often downloads more than a megabyte per page load. The interface is not optimised for mobile devices, you can view it on the mobile but for some reason when you zoom whilst looking at a file listing, it restarts the connection to the file listing making for a very frustrating user experience. Now for the good points, Despite the web interface issues, accessibility of the drive is quite varied, you can make user accounts which tie into what network shares they can access. Using CIFS and FTP you can map it to a network drive on Windows, you can enter your credentials into a FTP app on an android phone. Using DLNA you can access it from a Xbox 360 console or a smart TV. With the correct port-forwarding settings you can access your data from anywhere in the world. On the device itself there are many useful features, my favourites are the ability to give the NAS a HTTP/FTP download link great for large files such as operating systems or videos. You can also monitor resources on the drive and perform scans to check drive health. There is also automation of power on/off and backups through the USB port which I find really useful. This drive is awesome for entry level NAS enthusiasts or small families and not for anything like small business or beyond. That said I think it is well worth the price tag compared to what's on the market at the moment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Generally OK. Like several other types of home clouds, the system falls down on backing up lots of small files, eg an .epub library. Having said that, it's easy to use, and definitely better than the WD Cloud which I bought previously, and which was useless. I expect the unit to improve as D-Link develop better firmware.......always assuming that they do actually intend to do that!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great Product For my simple needs it is ideal: simple to set up, quiet, efficient and hopefully reliable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice NAS overall once I had worked out how to map it. This is a nice product bought it and fitted two 3 TB disks. My only slight critism is that the manual is not great with regard to mapping. Took me a while to figure out the best way as windows was failing to detect it under Networks!! Ok so quick and easy way to map is :assign the nas a fixed ip address go to map network drive, then map like this. \\192.168.1.? (your assigned address)\Volume_1 so again \\192.168.1.??\Volume_1 . Then enter your password if you have assigned one, works like a dream every time. Unfortunately this is not well described in the manual. Hope that helps.
