The DNS-323 might be thought of as D-Link’s somewhat belated response to Netgear’s SC101. Both are two-drive RAID 1-capable BYOD NASes with easily installable drives and similar physical sizes. But fortunately for D-Link, that’s where the similarities stop. The DNS-323 uses SATA drives instead of the IDE drives used by the SC101 and a gigabit Ethernet port vs. the SC101′s 10/100. The 323 also sports print, FTP, UPnP AV and iTunes servers, where the SC101 has no built-in servers. Finally, since the DNS-323 supports the standard SMB/CIFS network filesystem protocol, it can be used by machines running OSes other than Windows including Mac OS and Linux.
In other words: everything the SC-101 could (and should) have been.
