4 You have to be patient but it could be worth it...Rhyddin | 09/11/2008 | See all Rhyddin's reviews (1)I was, first of all, very impressed with the delivery time - Well done Play!The drive itself is very small and aesthetically pleasing sat on the cabinet. I am planning on using it with a Mac predominantly and am awaiting delivery of a Sonos multi room system so this will also be a major element of it's duties and the reason that I went for a NAS over a cheaper USB hard drive. Setting the drive up on the network was easy enough and the software installed onto the Mac quickly.The problems started when I started trying to transfer the 200+gb of music, photos and videos off my Mac onto the drive so that the Mac book downstairs could access them too (and of course the Sonos when it comes). The drive kept losing the network connection mid-transfer and so I had to keep restarting. Bearing in mind the size of the transfer, it meant that hours would pass before it would fail. This proved to be very frustrating. I tried all sorts to fix this, for example hard wiring the Mac directly to the router to take the wireless connection out of the equation, but it did not help. Eventually, I thought that I would try something unexpected: I blew the dust off my PC and turned it on. It immediately saw the drive and I went ahead and installed the software. The PC seemed to do a great deal more during the install and suddenly the drive started responding as I had hoped that it would all along!Right now, it is a third of the way through transferring my 12,000 iTunes tracks from my Mac and so far, so good! It is not fast but as long as it reads it back at a good speed I don't mind.In conclusion, if this works, this will be absolutely fantastic and worth every penny. My advice to anyone thinking of buying this is go ahead but, whether you plan to use it with a Mac or PC, use a PC to set it up! It will save you hours. I anticipate (optimistically) that it will be a must-have for anyone with a home wireless music set-up as I won't have to power up any computers to enjoy my music in future. Fingers crossed!
