Conclusion

We have tested a D-Link device that has all the typical features of many products of this brand such as unassuming exterior, good quality of manufacture, average performance, and support from the enthusiasts community. The DNS-313 is no different from other NASes of its class. We guess its most important feature is the creative community whose members are doing their best to improve the device’s functionality. It is hard to recommend or not to recommend the DNS-313 for purchase just because it is up to the particular user to decide if its price is worth its capabilities. And of course, if you want to experiment with Embedded Linux over the weekend, the DNS-313 will make a good device to start with.
