Easy Installation and Setup

This enclosure supports 2 x internal SATA HDDs up to 4TB capacity (please refer hard disk compatibility list in the download section for more information) and installing them is as simple as popping the top and sliding them in. Push the latch button to access the drive bays, then just slide your drives into place and you’re ready. A convenient USB port on the back of the ShareCenter™+ can be used to either share a USB printer with an entire home or office, or attach an external USB storage drive for easy one-touch backup. You can also connect an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) to monitor power levels and ensure the safety of your data in the event of a power failure. Plus, you can copy the contents of a USB dongle at the touch of a button. 

Stream Digital Media with Built-in Media Server  

Back up your digital media files to the ShareCenter™+ for safekeeping, and enjoy the benefits of the built-in DLNA Certified UPnP AV media server. Stream digital content to compatible media players such as the PlayStation 3, Microsoft Xbox 360, or directly to a smart TV. You can also enjoy photo, music, and video streaming remotely through mobile devices. 

Powerful Performance and Flexibility  

Four different hard drive configuration modes are available (Standard, JBOD, RAID 0, RAID 1), which allow users to choose the configuration best suited to their needs. Standard mode creates two separately accessible hard drives. JBOD combines both drives to create a single, easy to use volume. RAID 0 combines both drives in a “striped” configuration, which provides maximum performance when using a Gigabit Ethernet connection. RAID 1 creates a copy of your data on both drives, providing maximum protection; if one drive fails, the unaffected drive continues to function as a single drive until the failed drive is replaced. The DNS-327L is hot-swap enabled meaning you can easily replace a failed drive and your data will automatically be copied to the new drive, allowing the ShareCenter™+ to return to its full level of protection and ensuring your files remain safe.
