"Horrible admin tools and multiple user functionality"0.5 starson by whaleya
Pros: It is able to serve up files stored on it.
Cons: Primitive and limited admin tools. Can't make users and user groups like every other NAS or OS out there. There has to be multiple shares for different groups or users. The rest of the admin tool kit is just as poor, primitive and limited.
Summary: I have worked with many brands (qnap, synology, buffalo, Snapserver, etc). This Dlink is the worst by leaps and bounds. The admin tool kit it to crippled... I have to make mutiple shares for folders since I can't assign multiple groups/users to a shared folder. Raid tools and HD health tools are a joke. When I compare to an 8yead old NAS the Dlink fails.
For the reviewers that like the Dlink I can only assume that they have ONLY ever used the Dlink and don't know what else is out there.
The ONLY way I can recommend this is if you dump the Dlink OS and hack in your own OS for it.
For a Good NAS look to Synology (my current fav) or QNAP (almost as good). Buffalo is cheap and OK. Look to ANYTHING other then the Dlink. Our Dlink is a few months old in a small office and we are planning on putting it in the trash and popping the HD into something else..anything else.
