The D-Link® ShareCenter® 2-Bay Network Storage device with USB printer support is the perfect way to store, safeguard, and share your digital documents, music, videos, and photos with anyone on your network. The DNS-325 is expandable; you can add up to 2 SATA drives giving you plenty of space to store tons of digital photos, thousands of hours of digital music, or hundreds of DVD-quality movies. Adding a drive is a breeze with the D-Link tool-less design.
Figure 1 is that the power button part of the front panel is flexy so that you can push it against the actual switch mounted on the front frame. Size is close enough to the same as the 323, about 4″ X 5″ X 8″.
Figure 2 is the rear view, which also will be very familiar to DNS-321 / 323 owners. The single Ethernet port is 10/100/1000, but doesn’t support jumbo frames. That’s no big loss, though. I stopped testing NASes using jumbo frames awhile ago because I found it didn’t provide significant performance improvement with recent-generation computers.
If looking at the outside of the 325 evokes a sense of deja vu, the inside does too. Figure 3 shows the 325′s chassis, which slides out from the back after removing two sets of four screws (and removing the drives).
