Update On My D-Link Issue

Here’s a quick update to this post about my experiences with D-Link tech support last week. Seeing as it’s just a light that has burned out and the unit is otherwise fine,  I have decided not to replace it. Part of the reason for that is the rather negative experience that I had with D-Link tech support. In a way I shouldn’t be shocked by any of this as I’ve had negative experiences in the past with their tech support, and have stopped recommending most of their products to my customers as a result. Another reason is that I haven’t got the confidence that my issue will be sorted out properly by D-Link given the circus that I went through with them on the phone.

Having said that, the DNS-323 is a really good product. But the quality of the support leaves something to be desired. And it’s often the quality of support that makes or breaks a product. Right now, D-Link’s tech support department is not doing an otherwise excellent product any favors. I really think they need to make some wholesale changes to fix that.

The next question is, what do I replace the DNS-323 with when it does die? I’m thinking that I’ll look at something like this from Lacie as I have had very positive experiences with their tech support and their products are excellent.

  1. You still using this? Recommend it even with the lame service? I’m thinking of picking one up.

    • I still use this. All things considered, it isn’t bad for what it is. Just be aware of the quality of the after sales service.
