Inside D-Link's xStack DSN-3200-10 iSCSI SAN array

We take a look into D-Link's 3U SAN array to see what makes it tick

D-Link uses an embedded "System-on-a-Chip" (SoC) which combines an iSCSI controller, processor, storage virtualisation firmware and offload capabilities in a single component. This improves reliability (because you don't have to worry about compatibility) and increases I/O operation speeds. Along with the 10 gigabit bandwidth for iSCSI commands, the xStack DSN-3200-10 SAN array is capable of 65,000 I/O operations per second.

The four DIMM slots can be configured to fit 4GB of DDR1 memory reserved for the disk write cache. This is protected by a 6500mAh Li-Ion battery to keep the cache safe for 72 hours after power failure. System memory can also be configured to a total of 512MB of DDR1 RAM.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
