Not As Straightforward as I'd like

I bought this mainly to back up my CD collection.I use a MACbook Pro.I'm competent,but found the whole set up complicated.The manual has not been well thought out - the username and password for the device don't appear until over half way through, by which time I'd already contacted Buffalo Support twice.I found the user interface clunky and non inuitive.It might be the Mac but I found that tracks went missing during transfer and some lost their tags/track info etc.which is next to useless for archiving.Using the torrent feature to move music to the NAS was a very complicated process, and nothing like using other torrent services.Tracks still went missing and my Mac had to be on and in contact with the NAS or the process stopped.PC users with this NAS have said they had the same problems.I haven't had the guts or the patience to attempt to set it up for internet sharing.In future I'll be using it for storage only, I can't rely on it for the purpose intended.It's also extremely noisy.
