D-Link has released its ShareCenter 2-Bay Network Storage devices, the DNS-320 and DNS-325. These network-attached storage (NAS) solutions feature an upgraded hardware platform and enable consumers to share documents, files and digital media on a home network.
The DNS-320 and DNS-325 provide users with centralized storage to help protect, manage, share, stream and remotely access data, says Daniel Kelley, associate vice president of consumer marketing, D-Link North America. Both products feature two SATA HD bays for 3.5-inch drives of either 1TB or 2TB capacities.
Installation of ShareCenter devices is simple, and if more storage is needed, easy expansion allows consumers to add additional hard drives without using tools or attaching any cables, according to Kelley. In addition to content back-up and RAID support for data protection, the DNS-320 and DNS-325 also feature remote access to files through a built-in web file server app and FTP server.
With the included remote backup application, users can back-up content to a second storage device at another location to protect against data loss. And, using the USB port in each device, users can share a single printer among all of the computers in a household over the network. Additionally, users can automatically download content from the web without powering on a computer with the integrated Peer-to-Peer Downloader or access their files at top speeds without bottlenecking with the Gigabit Ethernet port.
The DNS-320 and DNS-325 are currently available throughout the D-Link network of retail and e-tail outlets in North America, including Fry’s Electronics, Micro Center, J&R, Amazon, Tiger Direct, NewEgg, Buy.com, and at the company’s online store (http://www.dlinkshop.com). Street prices for the DNS-320 and DNS-325 are US$109.99 and $199.99, respectively. In addition, D-Link will also launch the DSN-320-110 and DNS-325-110 (pre-configured with a 1TB disk drive) in May 2011 for $199.99 and $279.99, respectively.
