This week CRN published a summary of their 2015 Products of the Year.  Included among the broad selection of product categories, the D-Link DNS-340L received Honorable Mention as a low-cost NAS solution for budget-conscious users.  Providing features found in both consumer and business-class storage arrays, the product provides all the basic hardware and software features one would expect in a consumer NAS, but with the addition of several useful business features such as SNMP for management, iSCSI support, NFS and user-access right assignment.

The reviewer was also pleased by the ease of installation noting the DNS-340L is “…a four-bay cloud-enabled network-attached storage device that’s about as easy to set up as they come.  It literally took more time to attach the strap handles to the test drives than to configure the NAS for access on a LAN and from the Internet.  The DNS-340L is an ideal solution for SMBs seeking a cost-effective platform providing an easy-to-use NAS solution for accessing, sharing, and backing up important data.
