D-Link ships two new ShareCenter NAS drives
D-Link this week shipped two new two-bay network-attached storage (NAS) products in the form of the DNS-320 and DNS-325. They replace the DNS-321 and DNS-323 and sport two 3.5-inch bays with SATA connections. Users can remotely access files stored on these devices thanks to an integrated, web-based file server app and an FTP server.
Included with both NAS drives is Farstone’s Total Recovery Pro Backup software for setting up regular backups. A USB port lets users share a printer over their home network. A Peer-to-Peer Downloader is also present, letting users download files without having to power up their computers. A gigabit Ethernet port connects the devices to the network.
The DNS-320 is powered by an 800MHz processor, while the DNS-325 gets a faster 1.2GHz CPU to handle more traffic. The former also has a photo gallery app, an audio streamer and a blog app that allows hosting blogs directly from the NAS. Mac users get AFP sharing and Time Machine support from either NAS.
The DNS-320 and DNS-325 are now shipping, priced at $110 and $200 in stores, respectively. The DSN-320-110 and DNS-325-110 with 1TB drives will come out in May, for $200 and $280.
