Reviews and Problems with Logitech Squeezebox Boom
Showing 1-10 of 12
Previously unreliable, now much better.
Guy E. Cooley, Amazon

Summary: Updated: June 17, 2012. Since Logitech has pushed a new bios to it - it seems to be functioning far more reliably than it had for nearly 2 years. I've not seen the unit at the "choose network" prompt in quite a while.
Summary: The problem I had was, when I played it, it freezes a lot. Especially, when I played pandora, it just stopped and no buttons responded. I needed to return it 3 times to have good one. But the unit itself was not wrong.
Logitech Squeezebox Boombox, Great Sound but difficult to use
Roger James "Doc", Amazon

Summary: The Squeezebox Boom is a great sounding internet radio. It looks nice but the ease of use leaves something to be desired. The squeezebox radio by comparison has a much better display and although similar in operation is much easier to use. It doesn't sound as good with it's one speaker.
Summary: This Internet radio is sturdy and does most of the things I want it to do... However, after unplugging it and moving it to another room, it sometimes loses its 'mind' and has to be set up again. I do indeed like the box and what it can do...
Summary: I have had my Squeezebox Boom for over a month. I have mixed feelings about the radio. It's actually a really nice internet radio. The screen size is great and I like that it features info for what song is playing. The sound quality is pretty good.
Great all in one product .... but it's still just a boom box

Summary: OK on the positive side This is a great little product. Great packaging, easy to use, easy to setup, very cute nice touch with the little remote that is magnetized to stick to the top of the unit etc... all very nice. That is a perfect unit to put in the kitchen or as alarm clock in your bedroom.
The Logitech Squeezebox Boom - Good Streaming Radio, But Requires Other Squeezebox Add-Ons To Shine
Mark "Technology, Music and Movies", Amazon

Summary: adds an all-in-one streaming radio to the Squeezebox product family. This radio includes a simple monochrome screen, basic controls, a basic remote and good integrated speakers. Combined with the integrated amplifier, it produced better sound than expected.
Not your daddy's Squeezebox - BOOM (until it goes boom)

Summary: UPDATED 5/3/2013: My Squeezebox stopped working (blown right speaker). The internet contains a lot of these complaints. I contacted Logitech and they said they do not offer repair service, but would replace it under warranty (2 years or less) with a UE model.
Summary: I've had this almost two years now and the sound quality and most things on it are great when it's all working OK. For me though it has proven to be a major hassle getting it to work OK. Even though I have it connected network wise by a homeplug it constantly drops its signal to internet radio.
