iTunes server feature is not working at all (I work with a MacBook pro 2009)
Federici Leonardo "elleeffe", Amazon
1 June 2013
Summary: I bought this, due to the good reputation of QNAP and with most of all one aim: move my iTunes library away from my main HD. Itunes server it's not working at all, you can't start it. It's enough one accent, one "not so usual" character in your files that the server it will not start. With few selected files I can start it, but .... no covers, a lot of problems with metadata.
Difficulties with transfer of iTune Media Files/Linn DS System
R J Bond, Amazon
10 December 2012
Summary: It could be me........but I found the instructions and support lacked an "idiot" guide to setting up with my Linn DS system- although Linn list the Qnap as a favoured product. The transfer of iTunes media files via the Twonky Manager has never worked properly to this day. I therefore cannot recommend this product to any novice wanting to store and access music files on the Qnap. If anybody from Qnap can prove me wrong - I will be delighted!
Summary: If you're thinking of buying this item then beware; the firmware has fundemental flaws especially where security is concerned. If you want the details go to the QNAP support forum and look under "Firmware & utilities". Unfortunately you'll need to register to see this but you'll not regret doing it if you're thinking of buying this item; there are many dissatified customers including me.
Summary: If you are thinking that this thing may make your life in the multiple device home easier - think hard and long about this one. I thought that I had - and even with my fair knowledge of computery things - this has taken me far too long to set up - not yet properly - and sits under the tv - next to the router - taunting me - promising so much - delivering so little - looking like a kitchen appliance that's gone and sat in the wrong place.
Summary: Where shall I start? There where to many issues with this device. Initial set-up didn't work and had to be done twice. None of the Addon's worked. Wasted 1 week of my life troubleshooting this device. Sent it back as nothing really worked.
QNAP TurboNAS TS-212 Turbo NAS System (2x SATA, 3x USB2.0)
29 September 2011
Summary: Hallo, ich möchte hiermit alle anderen, die vielleicht die gleichen Wünsche an ein NAS-Gerät haben von dem Produkt warnen. + ein externer Server mit der Backup- und RAID-Funktion + Mediaserver (wenn's funktioniert) + Cloud-Funktion - keine freie Portfreigabe ist möglich (PORT 80 ist für MUltimedia reserviert, so dass man keine HTTP-Seiten mehr abrufen kann) - regelmäßige Abstürze. Ist dann weder per Webinterface noch per IP ansprechbar.
Summary: “Config souhaité: 2 HDD en RAID 1. Bilan: Impossible d'intégrer 2 HDD dans le boitier sauf a re percer de nouveaux trous ! 1 seul cable d'alim et 1 SATA pour connecter 2 HDD (donc impossible!) Et en plus, dans leur quick guide, QNAP explique bien comment intégrer les 2 HDD dans le boitier et comment n'en connecter qu'un seul.
