does the job
bought it for backing up my and my wife's laptops + my desktop - so far it's been working flawlessly. Easy to set up. It does have a bunch of other features I haven't gotten around to exploring yet. Good deal.
So far, so good
Seems to work OK so far. Will see what it's like in a year of auto use.
Works great for home nas and media server
I have 4 Windows 7 computers, a mac, a Wii, 3 DTV receivers, a TV and a DVD player that I use with this. They all found it easily and access it with no problems. I also can access it when I am not at home using DLinks free DDNS service.
I bought this to serve as video storage for our macs at my company, and there is no included mac software. You need to use the web interface to set it up, which is tempermental at best. Once I got it set up, the problems didn't stop. The macs connected fine (through smb), but wouldnt stay connected longer than 10 min or so, even when directly working with a file on the network. D-Link lvl 1 tech support had no suggestions, and referred me for a specialist call-back, which he said would occur within 10 min. Over an hour later I hadn't received a call, so I returned the unit.
Bought this to do incremental backups to NAS and the software they supply (Farstone Total Recovery Pro) doesn't work with the NAS connection. Wasted hours with both Farstone China support and D-Link Southeast Asia support to have Farstone blame D-Link and D-Link says they don't support the software they supply. Yay. Trialing Acronis latest version now. I had to upgrade the firmware to make it work with 3TB drives, which then required a reformat. Blech. Don't like the drive insertion... tabs catch on the housing. It does, however, work with Windows Backup and Restore, and with regular Windows Explorer network access. Overall... it's lower quality than I expected for the price and I would have rather spent more on a unit of better quality. For infrequent use it would be better to just buy a toaster or portable HD.
