QNAP NMP-1000 Network Media Player Review

The QNAP NMP-1000 network multimedia player is a home networked appliance for playing the videos, photos, and music from either the internal SATA hard drive or other PCs or NAS devices on your home network. The player can be seamlessly integrated with your TV and stereo system for playing your digital collections in the living room or anywhere at home.

The QNAP NMP-1000 is actually one of the better media players we have tested here at Legit Reviews. Never before have we seen a player on the market that has as many features and functions that is packed in this QNAP media player. After using the unit for a few weeks, we can see why QNAP chose the name NMP – or “Network Multimedia Player”. If you only want a media player that can communicate with your home network, then you will probably gag at the price of the QNAP NMP-1000. At over $400, it is far and away the most costly player we have seen. The thing is, if you want a box that completely integrates into your home theater AND your home network with full-fledged network sharing capabilities, then there is no other player out there that is more functional than the NMP-1000...

Except for the blue LEDs this one looks like a winner. Once again, time for the soldering iron to "Get rid of the MF blue LED!". (think it it as if Samuel L. Jackson were saying it)

Unlike the Patriot Box Office, the QNAP NMP has a remote. Gotta love that feature.

LOL!

No need to get the screwdriver and soldering iron out, you can turn off the Blue LED by simply navigating over to the last "Settings" page. You can also dim the front panel if you wish as well.

Now that is what I call a thoughtful product! If tthe LEDs were rainbow it just might be perfect. LEDs off is just fine with me.

Good job QNAP!

Thanks for the update.

Does the NMP connect to my ReadNAS? (Just kidding QNAP. ( sorta ( kinda ) ) ) ;-)

If you have a NAS that can be seen on your network, you can map it to NMP-1000 with no problem. It doesn't matter the make/model.
