Recognized by Industry Publication As 'Ideal Foundation for Storing Files Across Home or Small Business Network'
FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., March 25, 2009 — When it comes to network storage, one can never have enough, especially when storing and sharing videos, music and photos among multiple users.

For that reason, Computer Shopper, a leading industry publication, has recognized the D-Link® 4-Bay Network Storage Enclosure (DNS-343) as an Editors' Choice, calling it "a robust solution with RAID 5 security and drive expandability" that is "hard to beat".

"D-Link's DNS-343 is a versatile network-storage enclosure that hosts up to four SATA drives with a variety of configuration options, including three RAID levels. Blazing transfer speeds and ease of use make this an ideal foundation for sharing files across your home or small-business network," states the publication's latest product review.

The editors further praised the product by stating:

"The DNS-343 is jam-packed with features, including print, DHCP, iTunes, FTP, and UPnP A/V server capabilities. The enclosure's straightforward, Web-based user interface makes it easy to set up and manage user and group accounts and assign storage quotas, access privileges and sharing rights. You can also set power-management levels that turn off the drives after a period of inactivity, and configure e-mail alerts when a drive is full or has failed, or when the internal temperature exceeds a certain level."

"Other maintenance functions include one-click system-shutdown and restart capabilities, firmware upgrades, and a Scan Disk function that searches for drive errors. As with most D-Link products, the interface offers helpful tips for using each feature. For example, setting up an FTP server was a snap, thanks to the port-forwarding tip that accompanies the FTP setup screen."

The review adds, "...the D-Link DNS-343 stands out as a top-notch network-storage device that offers blazing throughput and plenty of room to grow along with your storage needs. Whether you're a seasoned IT professional or a networking newbie, you'll appreciate how easy it is to set up and manage your network volumes using this feature-rich enclosure."
